March Calendar Photo

Well it seems that Spring has decided to make an early appearance here in New England! Now I know it won't really stick around, this is just a taste of what is to come in another 6 weeks or so, but it sure is nice to be reminded that Winter won't last forever. LOL

After having our plans thwarted repeatedly for the last several weekends we finally had a very productive weekend. We spent some time at the NH Camping and RV Show yesterday and found a couple of new campgrounds we will try out this year. I'm happy to say that we didn't find any new campers that we couldn't live without! :) We finally found a place that sells the new refridgerator we've been looking for and it was on sale! WooHoo! So it was a good weekend overall.

Now you may have seen a February post where I showed pictures of four of our animals. My original intent had been to display a photo of all five animals but the calendar page simply wasn't large enough. So I decided to keep my favorite photo of our cat Luke for the March page. He gets a page all to himself! Isn't he just the cutest?

All of our cats are rescues but I think his story is the saddest. When he was less than a year old his family moved away and left him outside to fend for himself. Can you even imagine? I swear I just don't understand some people. Anyway he got into a bit of trouble, either with an animal trap or another animal, no one knows for sure but he had to have a couple of surgeries after he was rescued and he almost lost his back leg. He had to stay in foster care for 5 months before he could be put up for adoption. But he now has a happy home with a family who loves him whole-heartedly!

The stamp isn't positioned correctly (that's what I get for rushing and not paying attention) but it is an image from JustRite Stamps which states "May the luck of the Irish be with you". I colored the shamrocks with a Copic marker and the horseshoe is colored with a combination of a Prismacolor Pencil (Gray) and a black gel pen. The green striped paper is from a huge paper pack called Wild Asperagus which I picked up last year at A. C. Moore for $9.99.

Yesterday we stopped by the Scrapbook store on our way to the Camping Show and I picked up a kit by Bo Bunny which I'm hoping to get started on tonight. Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful week with Spring-like weather! :)
