Hello, friends! We're unfortunately just popping in quickly today, and late. Things at my workplace have been especially crazy this week, and so my intended post for today had some delays. One main arena in which I failed was my doodle for my poem for Angel Sammy's Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge. It's almost complete, but I haven't gotten to pull out my art markers in a number of days due to my full-time job, and so it's not totally ready to be posted today. I'd like to share the poem and doodle together, and so it will be shared sometime in the next few days.
The above said, we have hired a new employee at my workplace. As I mentioned a few weeks back, one of my previous co-workers put in his two weeks' notice and has since left us because he was offered an amazing opportunity in another state. He was a great and very hardworking co-worker, and so when he left our already skeleton crew was really pushed to its limits. My newly hired co-worker will have quite a bit of training to do before he's ready to really dive into the nitty-gritty work, but at least we're in a more promising place now than we've been for the past few weeks. Long, extra work hours should soon no longer exist, and I'm looking forward to the time I can finally again put toward art, blogging, and my other favorite hobbies.
Am I rambling? I think I'm rambling. To make this long story longer, today's post is a different one than we intended because I've been working late and therefore didn't get everything done for our blog that I wanted to. That said, since I should have a calm weekend to work on art and my blog, and since my possibly favorite holiday is coming up at the end of this month, during the upcoming week leading up to Halloween, we'll be having an entire week of properly scheduled posts with new doodles and new Halloweeny furbaby photos every single day. Though I've been sharing a lot of flashback Halloween doodles lately, much to my chagrin, I actually have a number of new Halloween doodles almost or completely done. I just haven't done the final touches, scanned, or uploaded them. And so, with those new doodles and the results of some Halloween photo shoots I managed with the furbabies this past weekend, next week on our blog will be all things freshly Halloween every single day. I'm excited, but maybe that's just because I adore this spooky season.
For today, though, here's a thankful Thimble.
There are of course a number of options for keeping a cat or dog from escaping out a busy door on Halloween. First, you can set up a safe room for your cat or dog and keep them in there during the Halloween festivities, so that they have no ability to escape from the house when people show up at the front door. Depending on how your house is set up and how determined your kitty or pup is to reach the door, you can also put up baby gates or pet gates to keep a cat or dog in an area of the house away from the door. If your furbaby is leash trained, and as long as the leash is securely held, your kitty or pup can also be kept safe in the house by attaching them to their leash, with of course someone or something holding said leash. You best know your furbaby as well as the setup of your home, so use whatever method is the safest, most surefire way of keeping your kitty or pup from escaping out a busy door on nights like Halloween.
