CbL When Doves Cry and Flowers

Hmmmmm.  Another post, another bout of writer's block.  Checkers is sitting on my lap. She's five days into her medicine and she's back to peeing normal, but there is still blood in there.  I think she may have a little kitty cold too.

So I have new neighbors.  The other day, I was headed to work and they ambushed me in my car. HAHA. I had seen them walking in my driveway while getting ready earlier and was wondering why they were there. It seems that there was a five foot snake under their car that then went into my yard and they were following it. Welcome to the woods people. I've told you about my woods stories with the spiders and the bugs.  Yeah now they know.  Actually, I've lived here for 12 years now and never saw a snake until this past June.  I'm all for it as I have moles or voles tearing up my yard and I refuse to poison them, but if a snake eats them? Well that's just nature.

They were nice, they had come over to introduce themselves and tell me they ride motorcycles that can be loud.  I told them that I don't care about that, but loud music is what gets me.  I live in the woods for the quiet.  But damn did I feel like an old person when I said that about the loud music. Geez.  I have had a neighbor who did nothing but blast Led Zeppelin music and play drums all day and night, so yeah I worry when someone new moves in.  Now I love me some Zeppelin, but not at that volume!

I'm just happy the old neighbors left.  They had these two yappy dogs that at the time weren't leashed and would chase me and anyone who came in my driveway in a menacing way.  Once I got so mad that I screamed expletives at their house.  Come get your F-ing dogs sort of thing.  Yeah not my proudest moment, as my parents were visiting, but I'm not going to be scared to walk outside my house. Ever since that moment though, they kept them leashed.  If they hadn't, I was ready to complain.

Let's do this ok?  Here is your silly bottle shot.

This is Colores de Carol Holo Blast, OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and Colors by Llarowe When Doves Cry.

I started with skittles.

Next I wanted to do freehand stripes, but I just can't yet, so I did a lot of tape.  Then I added more flowers. It's not what was in my head, but not all that bad either!  I used acrylic paint for the design.

I did top this off with the Holo Blast.  I like how this turned out, even if it wasn't exactly what I had in mind.

What do you think?

Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
