Tuesday

Happy Tuesday!

My daughter and SIL sent me a Belle remembrance.  The mason jar vase came with it.

AND...
My sister sent me these two guardian angel kitties for Captain and Sweet  Belle. Family. Where would we be without them.

The lawn needs mowed. One great thing about not hopping on that was it has given the violets a chance to bloom.
Look familiar? We didn't even bother to go down the TP aisle.

What about you, my blogger buds. Are you staying safe? Got enough paper and hand sanitizer?

AND... Question for the day.
The powers that be say you can't make your own sanitizer from booze because the proof isn't high enough.  I wonder if that applies to White Lightning. Heh. THOUGH, I  did see it could be made with rubbing alcohol and aloe. Lots of differing opinions out there.

AND...Some new portraits from my daughter. I'm just so darn proud of her. If interested in seeing any of her other paintings, you can find her at meghancox.net.

    Our tp aisle actually had it yesterday, at least in the morning, got enough though, so I just walked by.

    1. Thanks, Pat!
      And good job on walking by the TP if you didn't need it! Wish everyone had your attitude. Surprisingly I got a pack at Walmart. It was a four roll that equaled about 1 or 2 rolls. Heh. But at least they had some and had a sign up to just take 1 which I was grateful for. I went back about 10 minutes later because I was curious and yup it was all gone.

  7. The cat angels are so sweet. And your daughter is very talented.

    Grocery stores here are usually out of TP but Dollar Generals and Big Lots have been restocking. I'm heading out this morning so I'll let you know.

  8. Lovely angel cat figurines and flowers. We're staying put. I put a grocery order in through the store's online ordering. We have toilet paper and paper towels. I'm still trying to get isopropyl alcohol as I have made my own hand sanitizer and room spray for a few year. We got a bit of snow last night so no violets in the lawn. Your daughter is very talented. Take care.

    1. Thank you.
      You are smart to stay home and ordering on line is a great idea. Good on you for having TP and paper towels AND for making your own hand sanitizer and room spray.
      Snow. Sigh.
      Stay safe. Stay healthy.

  9. People are crazy regarding tp, paper towel and Kleenex but we see all the flour is gone too. I wonder how many think they can make their own bread? I love your pictures and the flowers. I wouldn’t mow any lawn 7ntil the flowers are gone. These pictures your daughter made are very striking. I am going to see more

    1. Ok..she is brilliant! I thought these were photos but she painted these images and they are very realistic. She has the depth and perception down pat and the hands, very difficult to draw, are perfect. She is an amazing artist

    2. I sure won't argue on people being crazy:)
      Thank you. Smiling. We think she's brilliant too:)
      YOU stay safe and stay healthy.

  11. Wow. She is fabulous. The subjects leap off the canvas. Does she have a website or a blog, Sandra?

    You have a kind, loving and sensitive family, Sandra. So very thoughtful. Stay well, my friend.

  12. It's always SO good when family rally to send gifts and cyber hugs. You got some beauties, too. LOVE the flowers. AND the cat, of course.

    Your daughter is more than a little accomplished. She is GIFTED. Truly wonderful way she brings the people to life. She's amazing.

    Sorry I'm late visiting. I have been offline for nearly SIX days (three each time) because of my horrible internet provider.

    1. I am so sorry you are having internet provider problems, Elizabeth. That is both stressful and irritating.
      Thank you for the kind words about our daughter. She and her husband are both very talented. We are proud of both of them.

  14. The violets are pretty and it looks like you received some good gifts. You seem behind what has happened here. While not quite normal in supermarkets, it is getting close to being normal supply.
