Cup of Sugar

Hi!

T.G.I.F! It's the last weekend before Thanksgiving! What do you have planned? I'll be making our grocery list and preparing for the big day. How about you? Will you cook this Thanksgiving or travel? Our family is scattered throughout the U.S., Australia and Canada so our Thanksgiving meal is usually the immediate family. Occasionally, we'll have extended family join us or have a friend over. I love to cook our feast! Everything is made from scratch, the kitchen warm, heavenly aromas, a hubbub of activity all day! And it never fails to amaze me that the hours of preparation take only 15 minutes to gobble up! :) But what a meal it is...and the leftovers are the best kind!

If you stopped by yesterday, you may have noticed that I promised a scrapbook page share of Sugar, our new little sugar glider. The name is so fitting because she's a real sweetie!


She's an itsy bitsy little thing, weighing only a couple ounces. Sugar gliders are marsupials from Australia. They make excellent pets if you have lots of time to devote to them since they love to spend the night, our daytime, sleeping in your pocket! I work at home so it's a perfect situation! At night, they are a bundle of energy hopping, jumping and running on their wheel together!


I created this colorful page with the Bella Blvd. Tail Waggers and Cat Naps collection. Included in this line are the perfect phrases and accents for all your non-human companions!


I did a hidden journaling circle behind one of the photos. I Often get so caught up in the designing and artistic part of a page that I forget where I'm going to put my journaling! Sometimes I use a tag that I can pull out from behind a photo which works too.


Both these photos are of Sugar. Cinnamon is still too frightened of people so I don't want to stress her out by taking pictures of her. She's making progress, one day at a time. Soon I'll have photos of her too, but I warn you, you will not be able to tell them apart! I struggle with that! They are identical!

Speaking of the babies, it's time for me to do some bonding exercises with them. Basically, you handle them a lot and let them sleep in a little pouch you wear. They have an acute sense of smell which helps them to know who is part of their 'colony.' I've had them just under two weeks and it's been such an amazing experience bonding with them. And our cats enjoy them too. They like to sit outside the cage and watch them play. Our boys (the cats) are really docile, indoor critters who will run off if the sugar gliders crab at them. I have no doubt they wouldn't hurt them and they'll be fast friends before long! After all, they live with two birds as well!

Please come back tomorrow because I have a freebie to tell you about! I hope you have a great Friday!

Kathy :)
