Harvest of memories

On Thursday we went to visit my Mother-in Law.  She lives alone, but is very independent.  One thing that we do for her is some of her laundry because we don't want her going downstairs in her house.  So when we got home the other day I just through it in the washer right away and before I knew it I set her laundry basket down and our male cat claimed it.  I had to laugh since he thought he found a new home.  So I called my MIL and told her that she may have lost her laundry basket since Casio runs things in our house.  She laughed, but he did give it back so I could put her towels and sheets in it.  He was my model for my card.  So my husband said to me while I was coloring, "Where is Casio now?" (wondering if he was still in the basket) and I held up my picture.  He said I did it too dark - more like the other two Siamese cats we have.
