Bubbles is a loving cat. Her ideal is to be cuddled and loved. She's still active though and loves to play and jump. She has been staying here, but is back at the shelter today to get spayed. Now she just needs her own permanent home. She looks lynxish to me and has half of a tail, so cute!

Flowers from Easter Sunday
We spend Easter Sunday in the north Georgia mountains with husband's family at his grandmother's home. My daughter and I wandered around and took photos of the gorgeous landscape.

I'm not really travelling, but I am spending time with family.  As a result, I'll not be posting much this week. I ask your patience and I'll have loads of pictures to share when we return.

Story
Tagline
I'm a work at home mom, Georgia Aquarium volunteer and substitute Teacher
Introduction
A Georgia Tech grad, mom of two teens, charter school supporter.  I also take care of 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 bird, 2 turtles and one lizard.  I volunteer at the Georgia Aquarium and at both of my children's schools.  I enjoy finding things to do in the Atlanta area, checking out new gadgets, reading books and much more. 
 
Now that my daughter is into cosplay, I'm renewing my love of the same. I haven't done much since Fantasy Faire or the early Dragon Con days, so it's going to be an interesting adventure.
Bragging rights
