Looked a lot like this in our house:
The dogs were outside and the sun was in my lap which magically led to our invisible cat coming out and being in my lap too. This is Mo Cuirdh, we call her Mo Mo. She’s always been a little skittish, even after living with us for the last 14 or so years. I love it when the sunshine makes her sluggish and she cuddles with me though.
Today also looked a bit like this from Nate’s couch:
There’s some Christmas knitting there. That’s the first Father in Law sock. Going to make me a heelflap and turn it tonight! Boo rah!
Today also looked like this from my couch:
Everything a girl could need. Two socks on two types of needles, various wee boxes of knitting implements, caffeinated beverages, a tiny computer with wireless internet so I can cruise Ravelry without disturbing the kitty on my lap, and if you look closely you can see that my orchid is sending out a flower stem. Whoo hoo! Not only did I not kill the phalaenopsis but it’s actually going to bloom for me. So cool.
Earlier in the day after my blood donation we went to the tile store and finally found some tile for the fireplace hearth:
That decision only took forever! The reason this decision was finally made is because last Saturday we finally made this decision, which will be installed on October 18:
With this type of fiery stuff inside it:
It’s been chilly at night lately. I seriously cannot wait for October 18th. The cats and I will be laying all over the place in front of that thing! This fiery insert doodad is called ‘creekside’. Vaguely pretentious? You bet your bippy. Hey, I’m almost forty, I got to start acting like an adult sometime. Snork!
In other news there will be some other casting on for Christmas knitting tonight but I can’t show you or talk about it because SOMEONE reads the blog and will see it and know it’s for them and then the surprise is ruined and blah blah blah. If you’re on Ravelry you could go have a peak there though. SOMEONE doesn’t have Ravelry so they can’t peak there. I’m using Dream in Colour Classy. So soft and lovely.
Okay, I’m going to go make some tacos for dinner then it’s back to the books & knitting for the night.
