Thursday Art Date: What A Mess!


Hello Friends! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

Welcome to Thursday's Art Date, today our theme is What A Mess! Poor Bugs isn't feeling quite himself today. He's a mess! ๐Ÿ˜Š A little too much of the jolly juice...oh I've been there! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thanks so much to everyone for your foodie suggestions last week, they were all brilliant. I feel so relieved knowing that Alex and I won't suffer too much without refrigeration for the first few weeks after we move! Shopping day was yesterday so I'm spending the next few days cooking and canning!


We are living in quite a mess ourselves. But somehow Oscar has found a comfy spot during all of this! The futon mattress actually fell over onto the tires...and it became a cat bed lol...When I saw this I couldn't stop laughing. Cats can find a bed pretty much anywhere!


We've had some early spring snowstorms here in the mountains, but a few days a week we have such lovely sunny days! The girls love this weather, they sit out on top of the snow for hours!


Jack prefers the porch! ๐Ÿ˜Š

That's all for now folks! Please check out the link widget below to see more What A Mess! artwork!

Love the photos os your furry family friends. My cat used to sit in the laundry basket, or on top of a pile of books. They always find a comfy place. Glad everything is well underway for you, good luck with the preps. Bubs look like he had a night on the tiles! Stay well and safe, hugs, Valerie

I am happy to read that you are cooking and processing for your supplies after the move.
The bunny is drawn in a great scene again, the poor.
Your animals I like your photos what they do ... cats and dogs.
I wish you success and good moving times take care of you!
Greetings Elke

Love your artwork.
My father always said if you want to find the most comfortable place in the house follow the cat and see where it settles. He had a point.
Stay safe, stay well - and leave the carrot juice to Bugs.

Betty said...

hi Rain, lovely pictures of your pets - think where you live they are made of strong stuff - sunbathing on snow! Hope your packing and moving progresses well. Betty

Leigh said...

Cats are great/ Oscar looks so pleased with himself, lol.

Very exciting to hear about your move! Moving is always the worst part!

Kristina said...

Congrats on the move. Can't wait to see the new home you are going too.

The jolly juice. Hahahah. I never heard that saying before. It cracks me up. Jolly juice.

Glad you and Alex feel that you won’t suffer. So many fun foodie options for the travels, even without the fridge. One year, but this was a cold North Winter … our fridge died. We took coolers and planted them on the back deck, which was surrounded my snow. It worked so well. Then inside, I made stuff that didn’t need to be kept cold. Really, I tell you, I had a lot of fun with it.

Hahaha, on the cat finding a new bed. Pets are the best.

Jack looks content on his porch. Ours our in the office with me now. I love dogs. THIS MUCH!

Stay well, be safe and have fun, Rain. Cheers and boogie boogie.

Christine said...

Not only are you packing and planning the move. You have a lot of "helpers" too. :) And, cats, yes, they can sleep pretty much everywhere.

Take care, stay safe.

DVArtist said...

Love the art and I really enjoyed the photos of your pets.

Toirdhealbheach Beucail said...

Still with the snow. Wow. I cannot imagine (and The Ravishing Mrs. TB would not like at all).

Stefanie said...

LOL how they just adjusted seamlessly to the packing chaos around them.

Magic Love Crow said...

Hey Rain! Glad to hear everything is going well! Love your bunny art! LOL! So cute! And, I love seeing your fur babies!!! Be Safe! Big Hugs!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Poor hungover Bugs! Hey, I've been there too, buddy.

RO said...

Always love when you post pics of the furry fam and yay to more cooking and ideas for recipes. You already know I wish we had that snow here. Sending lots and lots of your hugs your way! RO

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Yes, Rain, cats do know how to relax anywhere and Oscar has the right idea and so does Jack! Glad to read that things are moving along and that you received a lot of suggestions on food storage. Hope all dcontinues to go well with the big move and glad to see the weather is slowly improving, even if I would not want to see piles of snow still around. Thankfully, we have none here now, just rainy and windy days.

Martha said...

Same weather around here! I've actually woken up to winter scenes. At least it melted quickly. You must be excited! Tired, for sure, but also excited. So happy for you! You'll be in your new home soon :)

jaz@octoberfarm said...

NanaDiana said...

Love the Bugs Bunny cartoon. So fun to see pictures of your pets. I am so out of the loop that I didn't know you were moving and would not have electricity for a bit. Good luck...I know you will do fine. Stay Safe- Diana
