Pet-Sitting 101

Pet Sitting .....It’s hard work…I’m telling you. I run around after these 5 animals all day long ….

They are a hand full...

They are always into something, making a mess, not listening to anything I say! Purring too loud…no discipline at all!
And they never ever want to take a nap!!!

Seriously….if you ever find yourself pet-sitting at the pet’s house…bring something to do! A project you are working on, knitting, sewing; bring a good book and some movies….it’s quite boring if you don’t have something to do!
I just finished watching Mad Money!  *because its raining outside…again!*

 Now if you haven’t seen this hilarious movie…go rent it! And who would have thought up such a crime…its full of funny! "Money can’t buy you happiness but it sure can buy everything else!"  Diane Keaton, Queen Latifah and Katie Holmes…all goofy and clever in their quest to become criminals LOL.
A movie only lasts approximately 2 hours…so on to the next project. Sewing again. After completing the camera strap cover, I had extra material so I made a rice bag…What’s a rice bag good for? An achy back, crick-in-the-neck-pain, and cramps, just naming a few. Oh, and cold feet come to mind right now! These bags are heated up in the microwave for 3 minutes and man oh man…they are wonderful.

They really hold the heat for a long time and certainly more economical than an electric heating pad.
They are easy to make. Go see Darby at Fly Through Our Window for her easy tutorial and instructions.
Still having some fabric left….I made this:

A pot holder! Doing some more of my swirly work!
Plus I hate paying $5.00 for a pretty pot holder! Cute huh?

What next? Who knows……I can’t wait until Holly and Richard return from Miami….3 more days…..
and we are going out for some good seafood! YaY!
I forgot to tell them I get paid by the hour….
Let’s see that’s 10 days…24/7+3=a whole heck of a lot of Mad Money for me!

Take care and Happy Sunday tomorrow…until we visit again my friends

"A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
that a man should have to seek Him first to find her."

Angie Berry said...

Oh my word! Did you pose that cat? Lol! That is so adorable!!

Loving your sewing projects. What a great idea to make pot holders! I like to use up every bit of my scraps. That's the way I am in scrapbooking too. Just being resourceful!

So now you're down to 2 more days. You're such a wonderful Mom to do this!! Enjoy the quietness while it lasts~

Seriously, if you are looking for a real challenge, I have 5 kids you can chase ;)

sounds like you have been sooooo productive! love that fabric still and the rice bag sounds great. i know i'm going have to break down and get a sewing machine.

Sares said...

It sounds like you are really roughing it! I have seen the movie and it's a cute one, I love the ending, the stash in the back of the restaurant hidden in the barrels. I would NEVER have the guts to steal from the Govt.! Too much of a chicken! I hope the pet sitting continues to go well and you don't retire of boredom!

Beagles can be hard work. You must be a very good pet sitter to have them all asleep like this.

Nice quilting and I love the camera strap. I might get my mum to make me one because I can't sew and she is a fabulous sewer.


What sweet little critters. I love animals! I would imagine cats are easy to watch?... My mom makes rice bags to warm up in the microwave on a cold day. Great job with the pot holders.
