A couple of nights ago we had a huge windstorm with pounding rains--this cute little drawing, inspired by a vintage postcard, was born during that storm! Thankfully there was not any damage to the property, other than a big canopy which escaped its tethers to land on its head in the alley next to the house.
The storm was quite an adventure! The wind was so strong at times it wiffled its way through the sealed air conditioner, causing the curtains to puff and breathe.
Abruptly she leaped from her comfy spot in front of the fireplace to skitter up the stairs, flying back downstairs, sounding like a herd of miniature elephants.
I did try to go to sleep--the wind was a nice lullaby. However each time I was finally close to curling up and dropping off, Toez would catapult herself onto my shoulder, to walk stiff-legged across my arm, onto my hip, skipping on her kitty toes down to my feet. This, of course, left me pop-eyed and wide awake.
I did manage to sleep toward morning as the storm eased. Thank the Lord for that!
Happy Paint Party Friday! May the adventures of your New Year be glorious and fun! Blessings and peace, dear Friends--thank you for dropping by.
