She Lives!

Yes, I DO still blog here once in awhile! *wink*

I'm thinking I may survive now...wasn't so sure this morning! A very busy weekend, not just with the cat show...oh! Here's the booth:
And another view:

But also because my sister was in to help (and celebrate my birthday this coming Friday!), and that meant visiting, and eating out and laughing and carrying on...(we had a blast, my sister and my sis-in-law are the BEST friends a gal could possibly have!) and yes, we also staffed the booth both days and sold bags and talked with lots of folks (tho' I must admit that attendance was down, and apparently gas prices have affected some of the folks who show kitties, because there was a smaller bunch of kitties, too!).

I finished these:
My second pair of Summer of Socks 08 socks - these plain vanilla stockinette socks (using Judy's Magic Cast On for the toe, see the sidebar for more details), knit on size 1s, two circulars and a 2x2 rib for the top of the cuff. I was fascinated watching the pattern knit up in these, and sis-in-law liked them so much, I think there will be another pair in my future - as a gift!

I cast on tonight for these:
A special friend was in on Sunday (yes, it was a busy weekend) and when offered the chance to pick my next pair of socks' yarn - well let's just say that STR's Hot Flash was an easy choice. Wendy offered her fellow Plurker's a new pattern (Seaweed Socks) and I liked them so much, I decided to actually try to knit a complete pattern! Start to finish? ME? I'm even going to use her gusset and heel and see how I like them!

(You may pick yourself up off the floor now...)
tee hee!

Yesterday morning, before I was quite ready to wake up...I heard scurrying and scratching...couldn't quite figure what was up. I finally pried my head off the pillow (these cat shows are a lot of work, and tiring, to boot!)...This is what I saw...

Brings a whole new meaning to the term "kitty condo," huh?

I could just ditto the earlier comments re; both socks and kitties. That is quite a breakfast in bed treat.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
