Emma plays mom to our foster kittens. This usually just includes her standing over them and batting at them. However, today she licked Junior from head to toe. Rather, rear end to head. Junior was a little shocked at first and not digging it. As I'm sure anyone would be. After Emma started getting towards Junior's head she started feeling more comfortable and actually leaned into Emma. What started off as a very weird moment for all turned out to be very tender.

Christine and I did a ton of yard work this past weekend. The most embarrassing thing was trying to open up the yard waste bags. I don't know how other people do it, but I found just sticking my entire head in the bag and pushing the bottom open with my hand worked the best.
Sidenote: I know it's probably not significant to other people, but I've been drawing off and on for years and this is maybe only the fifth background I've ever drawn. I almost didn't do it for this picture, but I'm glad I did. I'm stepping out of my comfortability zone by baby steps a little each day.

When my wife and I draw we usually play a few drawing games. Tonight we had four random words: rattlesnake, seaweed, coffee, cotton. We had to somehow incorporate those into a drawing.
The other drawing is of some random guy sitting next to us at Barnes and Noble who kept hacking up a lung.
Nasty looking things.

The penciled beginnings of an Emma drawing.
My wife enjoys torturing our cat and our foster cats by dressing them up in a little green shirt. It's done out of kindness since it will help them become "child proof" and adjust well to whomever they end up being adopted by. I never complain. It's the funniest thing you've ever seen.

Yes, we're catching feral cats, having them spayed or neutered, and keeping them in our backyard. Weird, yes. So, far we've caught one feral cat and no raccoons. Hallelujah.
Before catching feral cats I spent the evening with my wife at a coffee shop drawing. We would name animals and then draw them as stuffed animals. Here drawings are below.
