day off

My friend gave me this sticker today and I probably “squeed” like a little fan-grrrl with delight, I adore it so much. Definitely going on the GrubbyGrrrl-mobile (my car) somewhere. Is it not the cutest thing?! Other news, I just finished recording a couple of lines for a podcast novel that I love. If & …

I am so touched! A friend of a friend who doesn’t know me, but follows this blog sent me a present over the holidays!  I feel famous!  And very grateful.  And humble.  So, I didn’t create it, but it definitely deserves a post. Complete with cute card and cat related goodness, I got a “Crazy Cat Lady” booklet, complete with solid information like, if you have an orange cat (my cat Chaos is buff orange), “Garfield comics still crack you up. Your ancestors are likely Irish.” [I am of Irish descent!]. And if you have short hair cats (both of mine are), “You could actually see how Michael Bolton could be handsome now that he’s cut his hair.” [Uh, not really.] If you have a long-haired cat, “As a kid, you loved brushing out the tangles in your Barbie’s hair.” [Must be why I don’t have one – I was a destroyer of dolls! Mwahahaha!] There is also a magnetized crazy cat lady with nine metal cats to stick to her. I can see my future now! Ha ha! I am so touched by the gift and the gesture. Thank you B!!!

And my dear friend gave me some earrings which I wore the other day and got compliments on. They are so cute, I wish I could say I made them!  Thanks C!!!!

House renovations, crazy work hours and other life events are rolling along well.  The  cat creations will be back in February! :)

PS If you too want to send GrubbyGrrrl presents or just plain ol’ hard cash, email me for my address!  LOL!  Just kidding!! I entertain myself!

Hope you have a great day! Smooch a kitty!

We bought a desk for me from Ikea for an early Christmas gift, which I am excited about. I can totally use the space it will give me. But it has become a project to assemble it because I want the legs closer together then they were manufactured for. So, being no awesome construction worker, …

No new cat of my own today, but I HAD to share this! After work I met a friend at a book store. I went a few minutes early to look at cross-stitching and embroidery books because I know nothing about them and I’m considering future cats…. and what to my wondering eyes did appear?! This fabulous book!!

Somehow I find cat hair objects creepy, so don’t expect any here. But maybe I need to work on overcoming my anti-cat-hair prejudice? I do have to admit that the little puppet on the cover and the cats in the book are super cute. Just can’t bring myself to plan any cat-hair projects.

And very exciting, I also saw my first in-the-flesh copy of Noah Scalin’s “Unstuck: 52 Ways to Get (and Keep) Your Creativity Flowing…” Congrats to Noah! His “365” book has me creatively juiced right now and I see a purchase in my future. :)


I’m so busy at work, I am slowing down the creativity project a little to keep myself healthy and keep the project enjoyable for me. I probably will not continue to post “day off” every time I take a day off, but the cat project will continue.

Thank you for your time!
