Hello, I'm Cat. This is a place for book reviews, food, craft projects, bad grammar jokes and sporadic life updates for my folks around the globe.

I forgot to set an alarm and inexplicably slept until 11am today. I suppose I must have needed it - I was late to bed on Saturday and Katla woke us up at 4am this morning wanting us to throw her scrunchy ball. After the ball was relocated to the cupboard I fell asleep again quickly but apparently my body decided that over 10 hours was an appropriate amount of snoozing.
Anyway, that made working fairly futile so I ran errands. Emails, post office, picked up my reheeled shoes and boots, emptied the cat litter tray, took some dry cleaning to be done. I’m also working on a project for someone who reads this blog, and am going to work on my younger nephew’s afghan later.
I was almost grumpy about lost work time this afternoon, but M came home and made the pictured mushroom stroganoff.

Minna Katriina aka Nokkasili

I don’t remember where I discovered this artist& the only information I could find on her is she is from Finland and sells her prints here: http://society6.com/nokkasili.

Her  work is really beautiful and I had to share! You can see her paintings and drawings on her tumblr
