This and that, and a wee bit of Friday Cat Blogging

Got my order of shipping supplies a couple days ago and today I'm waiting for a sterling silver order from Indonesia. I love looking at all my lovely little beads and findings when they arrive, although I'm always shocked at the customs fees and handling charges that accompany such orders. Even with all the extra fees, though, it is still less expensive to go directly to the source in Bali than buying them here in Canada, and definitely worth it since the silver is so beautiful.

Now that I've reserved Fridays for cat blogging, I don't have anything to say about my cats.

Well, I do have this photo of Ebi trying to look small and cute in a Uline delivery box when my order arrived the other day.

To mark the winter that is ever so slooooowly leaving us in Montreal (still hanging on!), here is my brother Doug (Dougie, back then) pulling me down the street in 1972 or so. The mounds of snow we had this year were the norm back in the '70's. In the spring, Doug would sometimes ride me to school on his bike and ride right into the schoolyard to drop me off, and my friends would be so impressed at my big brother (some said he looked like Bruce Lee - heee!). Maybe I'll turn this into Friday Cat and/or Family Blogging.

And I love my little map from (see right hand column, just under my profile). So much fun to see who's been reading your blog - I've had readers from all over the US and Canada, and in the UK, Finland, Poland, France, the Netherlands, Japan and Australia! Try it out, it's free!

Ok, gotta be heading off to the post office soon and then working on some jewellery for the day. Taiko practice tonight ☺Have a good week-end!

Love the box pic! I guess all cats are like that, it seems. Mine would hop in there right away if he saw an open box (empty or filled) !

I know what you mean about the cat writer's block once you've committed yourself to the cat blogging. But, you know, you really can't go wrong with pics of cats in boxes. Good save.

kongbawa tatsuko san! thank you for visiting. I really like the pic of Dougie & you. I also like such pics in blogs, not just about the business part of things.
