Simon is fitting into our household just fine. My other three cats are still a little wary of him but things will settle down in time. Another stray cat has moved in under our porch and I'm trying to gain his trust so I can help him too. He looks exactly like Simon, except much younger. I've named him Samuel.
I've been working on a self-portrait in graphite and John gave me these two books Jewelry Making Techniques and The Art & Craft of Jewelry Making for Christmas with many interesting techniques I want to try. I feel it's going to be an exciting year for me.
