Ive had a very busy week , My middle son started college, preparing our youngest for 6th grade, had to get the new backpack :)    ,  I have been completing some paint projects, just in time for a crazy summer flash flood type rainfall. WHEW!!! And Im not kidding about JUST IN TIME,, There were just a few clouds in the sky,,Very very hot when my boys brought my cabinet into the house, then about an hour later, this is what happened..It rained like this for about 30 minutes. This was MUCH needed, it washed away all the ash and soot that landed on all the homes from the huge fire 3 weeks ago, AH,,all clean. .

And then there is "Frank the Cinnamon Cat" , He loves this pink bowl, cracks me up. We did our responsible duty of neutering our cat, we hoped it would calm him down a bit, but he is still the trouble maker, into mischief, running around the house like he is crazy. Jumps in the Dryer while I'm folding clothes, gets in the shower when we take showers. lays next to my sewing machine.And he loves Hair bands, scrunchies, He finds the ones I lost, and chases them around the house, Scrunch paper into a ball and he will chase it and bring it back. Chases our black lab, I guess he thinks he is a dog too.

For those that have seen Frank grow up over the past 3 months, you can see how much he has grown. Doesn't fit in the bowl, but he sure tries. No matter what he does, HE MAKES US SMILE EVERYDAY.  :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful Pink Saturday. Stay Safe

We experienced one of those summer storms too. We get very little rain, but it clouded up and rained really hard and the windblew and it thundered at the same time and spit out large marble size hail. It was delightful and fun. I loved it. Frank is certainly growing and I know he must be alot of fun.

Happy Pink Saturday, Cynthia. Thank you for making Pink Saturday special, and for taking part in this day of celebration and thanks.

I'm still hoping to reach my goal of 200 comments by midnight tonight.

I just happened upon your happy blog...I love the photo of Frank...he reminds me of a kitty we had once who slept in an empty cool-whip bowl that was on the porch....:)
You have a great blog and very creative !

Cynthia, what a cute cat! I love him! And we are having weather like that today and have had it earlier this week. It's nuts, but like you, I'm glad because it is washing away the dust, etc. We needed it!

Hope all is well there. Thank you so much for your prayers for Mr. Magpie who is much, much better! I'm taking off my nurse's cap and putting on my cleaning do-rag to take care of all the chorse that have languished for the last month. They are screaming my name. I'm hoping to be blogging again in a week or so.

Hope your weekend is a happy one. Be safe...

So glad you got the good rains and all is clean and smelling great.
We surely could use a little rain out here on the plains of West Texas. :)
Love your pretty cat..

We have a "Frank" as well. But he doesn't have a name. WE just call him cat. Maybe that could be a contest on my blog.

Your pink is so cheerful. Just what I need this morning!

How cute!! Frank is soooo pretty! He looks just like a young version of my Charlie but behaves like our newest family member Toby! Love your post...and love Frank! Happy PS!

Your Frank looks exactly like our cat Pogo. However they are totally different in temperament. Ours is a recluse and only comes out when he wants attention or food.
Happy Pink Saturday!
