One of my cats is in the animal hospital being treated for crystals in the urine. He has a partial blockage and will need to stay in hospital two nights at least. My poor Shadow.

His brother Boots is beside himself, so I hope Shadow will be able to come home tomorrow.



Sister’s playing nicely with some of little A’s gifts.


Little G enjoying the party.

Happy 4th birthday, sweetheart. I can’t believe how much you’ve grown.

A day of joy with a little sadness too. I missed you sister Samantha today, but I know she will always be an angel watching over you.


After having the crap kicked out of me by whatever that sickness was I had I finally feel better. I’m trying to feel more optimistic about things and truly fight some serious issues in my life. It seems to be working as I’ve actually found myself feeling happy for no reason these days – a rare thing in my life over the last several years.

I’ve started the Debbie Bliss pattern Easy Garter Stitch Cardigan for my cousin’s son Jackson (pic to come – of both the sweater and baby). I’ve also got one more sweater on the roster for my newly arrived nephew, Cole. I haven’t decided which one I’m making for him yet.

So there you have it, I’m back and ready to post to this blog once more.


I can’t believe it but I haven’t been knitting except for a single dishcloth since my last post on August 20th. I have been very sick for the past two weeks with what I now suspect was bronchitis. The lack of energy made it impossible to do anything much less decide on a new knitting project. I’m still weak, tired and have a bit of a sore throat but I feel human again.

This weekend I’m going to pull out the stash and see if I have a pattern and yarn that want to make something beautiful. If not than it’s time to take a stab at designing something.
