I'd like you to meet Lucy

It's been eight whole months since we lost our Patches and we still miss her terribly.  We've said all along that some day when our hearts were ready, we'd adopt another kitten.  But, it never felt like the right time.  Still, every night when Stephen and I said our prayers, we asked the Good Lord above to send us the kitten that was right for us ... when the time was right.

I guess He decided that last Saturday was the right time. That is when that cute little fur ball in the photo up there wandered into my cousin's yard. One look at her and we couldn't say no.

Lucy (named after I Love Lucy, one of Stephen's favorite classic tv shows) is fitting into our family just fine. She and Stephen are playing with his spoon collection as I type. Yes, I know it's late, but it's summer and he has a new friend.

I hate to cut this update short but it's time to get get his teeth brushed, let him pick out a book and hopefully, get him in bed before midnight.

I hope you're all having a great summer so far.

Y'all take care!

What an adorable cat! Stephen has excellent taste in cats and classic television shows. Summer is NC is good but hot. We've already had 18 days hitting 90 or above and summer just officailly began a few days ago. Happy summer to you and Stephen!--Sheria

Oh, we got a new pet too recently....  He'll be a bit bigger than Lucy, though, lol.  We got a burnese mountain dog (will be over 100 lbs when grown).  Lucy is adorable!  Actually looks a bit like Lucille Ball, same hair color.  : )
