My old computer died completely just after I managed to transfer the last file to the new computer. Such timing! It’s fun having a new one and even more fun having one that doesn’t need to be rebooted ever ten minutes. I received my new Photoshop software today and installed it. I know I was being stubborn since all computers now have photo processing software, but it allows me to re-size and process photos en-mass, plus the old computer was so slow that the entire process became a huge undertaking. Below is the first batch and I have some more in the camera for another post.
Any news to report? Not much. Most of you know that Jujuba is doing fabulously and earning a reputation for being painfully cute. She is an unbelievable joy. She’s 9 1/2 weeks old. This week I gave her complete run of the house even at night (except the bedroom). I hadn’t planned on doing that at all. I usually keep kittens in the nursery at night right up to adoption day but picture this: the purple French door is closed after tucking Jujuba in for the night and I’m almost ready to go to bed myself, but I hear this little scrabbling noise and look down the hallway to see little Jujuba bouncing on her hind feet and pawing at the glass. It was just more than I could bear. She’s also eating with the big kids and has had several forays in the enclosure which she loves LOVES. I do very little monitoring of her in regards to eating, litter box, etc. as she is now just one of the gang. This is a sign that she’s nearly ready to take on the world and will be able to adjust nicely in her new home. Adoption day is December 3rd.
Work has progressed, albeit a bit slowly, on the painted cabinet project and I hope to have some more in-progress photos of it soon. I think it’s going to be kind of pretty.
That’s about it for newsworthiness. Many of the photos below are a few weeks old. You can estimate Jujuba’s age in each photo by looking at the file naming convention: YY MM DD. Note the pretty material covering the cushion in the photoshoot chair in the most recent photos. It looks a bit blue in the photos but is, in fact, a perfect “Mythicbells Purple.” Thank you JAFO!! She surprised me with this a week or so ago. It’s only wrapped around the cushion at the moment, but I have explicit JAFO instructions on how to make a “real” cushion out of it, though she did give me permission to just wrap it around. WHEW.
