It was nice having the day off yesterday, despite the heat! We took a trip to visit my Aunt Tina, who is one of the most amazing people I know. Two-three years ago, she started a cat rescue group from scratch and last year placed 1,500 homeless area cats into responsible, loving homes. She is so creative showed me her newest piece, a mixed-media altered book, which blew my mind! It was awesome! Lucy and Clifford loved her 2-acre fenced yard in the country- even the creek is fenced in. We explored the backyard (with her beautiful gentleman German Shepherd, Ivan), hiked at Pratts Falls Park, and then we sat on her veranda talking dogs, art, and animal rescue for hours with the dogs sprawled at our feet. It really capped the day!! She is really just the most awesome person and we had the best day-!!!!
