You know, Blog, I’m sure my weekend report will make our friend the Randometer proud. I watched Stanley Cup Finals hockey, went to a Pirate Festival, made a cake of polyclay and watched my cats eat grass. I’m sure even if you weren’t a disembodied yet anthropomorphized being, you couldn’t have done better, randomness-wise.
ACreativeDreamer, called the Creativity Invitation. Every month June comes up with a theme, and creative types from all over the Web contribute their creations. For the very first month, the theme is “Let Them Eat Cake.”
Well, it just so happens that for a long time I’ve wanted to make a polymer clay cake. Fondant is so much like polymer clay, you know, Blog? So June didn’t have to ask me twice. I decided as long as I was making a polyclay dessert, why not do it right and make it chocolate? So my little cake is covered in chocolate clay frosting festooned with chocolate clay roses from white to that kind that’s 80% cacao, woo, cacao! Ironically though, no clay fondant on this cake.
Davie thought it looked like a Ding Dong until I put the roses on. One could make a polyclay Ding Dong if one wanted to, Blog. Umm, I could go for a Ding Dong right now.
But far more appropriate for cat dining is our new discovery, cat grass. As you know, Blog, when our cats are on the patio they can be tempted to leave the Permitted Concrete Zone by the succulent-looking lawn that lies beyond the hedge. I was thinking we should look into growing some grass in a nice patio pot so they wouldn’t have to break the rules in order to dine al fresco.
And last time we were at Stein’s, lo and behold, at the checkout counter Davie noticed a display of cat oats. I planted them in a basket on the patio and in a week or two the things were crazy thriving already. This weekend we finally had a dry day to let the felines out, and boy, do they dig this cat grass.
If our readers want to similarly treat their cats, I found some cat grass here for sale on Amazon. You may also be able to find it at your local garden center or pet supply store. Look for oats like this especially, as they are very good for cats (dogs too!).
I wonder if next month’s Creativity Invitation will lend itself so well to a mash-up weekend, Blog. We, and the Randometer, can only hope.
