New Beginnings

Last Sunday we started off the week going to a demolition derby.  I did put sunblock on knowing we'd be in the sun.  I wore a hat but was wearing a tank top.  The venue didn't have shade. Hence, I ended up with the above sunburn.  Probably the worst I've ever had.  Currently it's now peeling.
And for almost 3-4 weeks now honey and I have been visiting pets stores holding adoption events for cats and visiting the Humane Society.  We've seen a few the we looked at but consider how their temperament is in our home and with the other cats.  We went Saturday and I fell in love with this precious girl.  She's five years old but a small cat for five and compared to my other two.  I found she loved to be pet, cuddled in my arms, had a cute meow and loves to purr.  All were a must in what I was looking for in a cat.  Marma was like that, and that's what I missed the most.
I pulled out some crochet tonight and she was content in sitting next to me belly up and purring.
Maybe that's why I lost some of that crochet mojo.  I didn't have my crochet companion to keep me company while doing my favourite hobby.  However, taking a break has helped my shoulder a bit.

In the shelter she was named Meesha. I do not know if that was her name before being surrendered but I decided to call her Pippa. 

The other two cats doesn't not seem to faze her.  However they're not too happy right now with her in their territory. The oldest has seen a number of cats come and go but the other hasn't. 
Only time will tell.  They give you two weeks to see how the new cat will fit into your home which is a nice option. 
Happy weekend all.
