Sunset from the Mountains

When I was in Denver with Chris last week, we sought out a sushi restaurant because he said he hasn't found one comparable to Kanpai, our favorite restaurant in Jackson. We're some of Kanpai's favorite customers, and he hasn't had good sushi since he left for Colorado in January. We finally found one that was ALMOST as good -- definitely not Kanpai, but it was tasty.

As we were driving back to the apartment, we saw the most gorgeous sunset over the mountains. Neither of us had our cameras, but we were together, and it was beautiful. When I came home, I made a pair of earrings designed to capture the colors and the romance of the sunset Chris and I shared.

Here it is, our fiery sunset:

Made it Monday

Last week, I went to Colorado to visit my husband who is going to school near Denver, so I've missed a few "Made it Mondays." I took my craft bag, so I could stay busy while he was in class, and I wound up with four pet necklaces and three sock mice. I don't have pictures of the process, but I have some great after pictures.

Since it was late when I got home on Sunday night, I didn't unpack my bags. I decided to get back to work this evening, so I brought my craft bag to the living room. Stryker woke up immediately when I unzipped the bag, and he acted like he really wanted to go through it. When I found the necklaces and made sure bag of catnip was zipped up, I let Stryker look in the bag, and he reached for one of the sock mice. He made sure I got all of them out of the bag, and he started playing.

Snowbird came over and wanted a toy, too, and she snuggled up with the white mouse and went to sleep. I love her expression in this picture!

Even Christabelle wanted to play. Spike was taking a nap, so she didn't join in the sock mouse fun.
