A Re-Do

As you seen in my past post I love stars. I bought this star to go over my mantel. I love it but wasn't very crazy about the rusty color. I have seen several of you with the same star but in black. I bought the paint to paint it awhile back but it's been too cold or windy. Finally last weekend we had a nice day and Ray took it outside and painted it for me. Now I love it even more!

I think it turned out great and very prim looking. It also matches a lot better with the rest of my decor.

************************

Well, I have to admit when I first lost my job I was up early and went on about my day. As time has gone by I have gotten bad about sleeping in. I try to be up by 8:30 or 9. Which isn't late but not as early as I would like for it to be. Unfortunately Abby has also gotten lazy with me but she is far worse. 

This is Miss Abby still in the bed after 10. She didn't get up until after 11 and the day before she slept until noon. She likes to snuggle up in the covers and sleep. She is first in the bed and last to get out of it. She is spoiled rotten.

Well, that's all for this posts short and sweet. I hope you all have a great weekend.

Black was definately the way to go with the star!
Can you blame her for wanting to sleep in and snuggle on the covers? Especially since it is so very cold outside! Oh how I envy her!
Have a great weekend

We often comment about how sleepy our cats make us just looking at how cozy they look all curled up sleeping all the time! :)

I agree- black was the way to go. I love sleeping in but if I am not up by 7, I am awake until 2 the next morning. Not worth it! By then Dh is snoring so loud, I'd never get to sleep! LOL
