Don't we all "love" to have the "last word" in a conversation or an argument???
Well--today I "finished" the last word in the "Gifts of Grace" bom!!!!
and you see what the word is don't you---
probably what half of us need to have at any given moment!!!

Hummmmm--it looks like I need a cat in the house--
look at those mice---wonder where "Gracie" is?????
Ahhhh--there's my girl!!!!
Hey Gracie--
You look like you are amused????
Is it because you knew all along whether "Ace" was a little boy kitty or a little girl kitty???
Well--the secret is out now!!!
Ace is really a Miss Ace!!!!!!
I truly think this is soooo funny---I have to tell you---I really really thought Ace was a Mr. Ace---Surprise--Di!!!!
Now Ace has gone to live with his new family and they adore her--and we also learned that Ace's new daddy works at the Church where our "run a way" Emma has been sighted and he told Carol that yes he has seen a kitten like Emma -- so he will be watching for her and see if he can get to be friends with her--so she can have her turn at the "clinic"!!!!!

Now to "other" news---
The are doing the painting of the hallway by my door today--
so had to grab some Clothes out of a closet that is next to an outside hallway wall-- and then had to move out some fabric storage bins so I could hang my clothes in the bedroom closet--as a result this is how my apartment looks tonight!!!!
Dinning room--

and here is the bedroom--
won't be getting to the cutting table any time soon!!!
But I also managed to get the Fall tote down off the top shelf--
there is alot of wall hangings and some quilts--oh where to put them?????
But hey look--
I am all decorated for Fall now--
Okay--you win----I have "unpacked" somewhat the fall things--as for actually being decorated----wellllllll---------???????

Well that's all for today---
see ya soon--
Hugs, Di and an amused "Gracie"

that it is still "very" dark at 6 am in the morning?????
But I did get up--even after a "restless" night with Gracie--
don't know why she was so restless--but she was!!!!

Carol came for me at 6:45 and she already had Ace--
we went and caged up Meme and off to the Clinic we went!!!
It was rather funny traveling there--as first Ace would say "meow"--
the Meme would go "meow" and then Ace would go "meow" and then Meme would go "meow"!!!! and they did this all the way there--just wished I could of recorded it--it was sooo sweet really!!!!

Late morning I went down and got the Mail--

Ok the first item is just a bank statement--
and you can see what the second item is--booo!!!
But what is this "third" item--
What a Pretty package--let's open this baby up---
Ohhhhhhh!!!! Do you see what I see????
a bag of dark chocolate---oh Yummmy!!!!
But what is this--
What an adorable bag--did some one send Gracie something--
I am getting "jealous" here!!!
Oh look--
it is for me--a piece of cat fabric--fall leaf buttons and fall note cards--
how sweet this is tooooo!!!!!
Let's see what else there is????
Oh now here is my afternoon entertainment--(provided I can stay awake long enough to read them today!!!)  here is three of my favorite magazines--
Oh and a card--
Oh how pretty--and it even has a nice message inside of it--
Oh you want to know "who" sent it????
None other than my friend Alice--at
What a beautiful surprise--Alice--I can not thank you enough--
and the timing is perfect---Thank you again!!!
Blog friends are the best!!!!!

I know that some of you had some really "weird" and bad weather the last two days--am so sorry--
but here today it was soooo pretty and warm--about 74 out there--that I decided that I just had to go for a walk late this afternoon and enjoy it -- instead of sewing!!!!
so here is some pictures of my walk--

and some colors other than really fall ones--
but these where out there today--

Now I did do some house work and I did work on a couple quilt projects and I did finish a baby hat and started another one!!!!
so I was very good girl today--
so Alice can I "pretty" please have some chocolate now??????

Hugs, Di and Gracie

Any ways--"Ace" is getting a new home on Thursday--hurray!!!!
And--Meme will have a new home as of tomorrow night--hurray!!!!

Tomorrow morning at 6:45--Carol is picking Mom up and they will go and crate

OK--Mom said I had to come out from my hiding place--
and write this post tonight---
SO--here goes--

Yesterday -- Carol, Little sister, and Mom went to the garage and was able to crate 
up my two sisters, Meme and Emma--
they then drove them to a neighbors of Carol's to transfer them to a bigger cage for a couple days--they got Meme in ok--but that sister of mine, Emma, out smarted them--she is faster than lightning that one and she managed to fly out of the cage before they could get the big door shut--and she was off and running!!!  so I am not sure where Emma is tonight--at first we thought we was back in the old garage--but now know it wasn't her--but Carol says lots of people in her neighborhood put food out everyday for the strays and homeless cats-so she is sure she will find food and shelter--and we will keep looking for her!!!!  So Mom has been upset over this--
But today Little sister and Mom went to Walmart on the bus early--
they had lunch at McDonalds--they get Happy meals--and today they put them in cute plastic Halloween buckets!!!  When they went to get a wagon to go on and do some shopping--one lady asked Mom about the cute bucket--and mom gave it to her for her granddaughter and then Little sister seen a little girl and gave her her bucket!!!!
Wasn't that "nice" of them!!!????

At Walmart Mom got some me some things--
first she got me---
2 nice china bowls for my "wet" food--
Last week she got me this set--
And 2 more of the metal bowls--and they work great for the water and the dry food--
but not for the wet!!!
Then she decided that she wanted to get me a better kitten food--
so for the dry she got me --this----
as it listed NO food colorings--Mom is a very ANTI FOOD COLORING person--
for herself and me!!!!
she also food that this brand of wet food started with "REAL" meat and not a by-product--what ever that means--
So here I am--
doing a "taste test" of the wet stuff in my new blue bowl--

Now Mom pretty much spent the week end reading--
when she wasn't caging, chasing, or feeding a cat!!!!!!!!!!!!

she said this was a good book!!!

She is also been ordering some decorating books on Amazon--
two out of the four she ordered has come in--
three of these where only 1 cent (plus the postage of $3.99--)
and the 4th one was $1.85!!!!
Now as for sewing or quilting--
(and between you and me--I think this is "why" she is making me do this post--
she has not really done anything for three days--)
she keeps "blaming" it on "us" innocent kittens??????

Well--I hope you all had a "PURR--FECT" day!!!
Be good and give a 'kitty' a hug today!!!!
Just Hugs and Smiles and Purrs,  Di and Gracie
