I couldn't resist sharing a cute photo I just took, of my cat:

Ever since he was a kitten (he's 9 now) he would curl up on my desk, in front of the keyboard, while I work. Suffice to say, he's a LOT bigger now and it's a real challenge to type my blog posts, as well as do all my other computer work, but he's just too darn sweet to move onto the floor. So with his back paw on my one arm and his front paw on my hand, I am typing most of this with one finger. Yeesh. Fortunately, I can slide his whole body off the side so that I can be more productive, with the sound of him purring away. Ahhh, the joys of working from home!

Enjoy the day and HAPPY STAMPING!
