Pioneer Cats

We have a house full of sickies this week. My daughter is sniffly, my son is feverish and I am feeling just ookie enough to refuse housework. Okay, so I don’t have to be that sick to refuse housework, but now I have an excuse.

I’ve spent the last two days in my most favorite yoga pants and a sweatshirt playing Florence Nightingale to the kiddoes and painting in the studio. Since sick kids are content to be layabouts, it’s been kind of quiet.

I’ve been able to finish eight of the cat portraits for The Pioneer Woman contest giveaway. I can’t wait to send them off to their forever homes.
