Kitty Close Ups


I can’t remember if I introduced you to the newest addition to our family, Henry. We got him back in June — I can’t believe it’s been that long! He was 6 weeks when we brought him home so that would make him 5 or 6 months old now. He is incredibly sweet and loves to cuddle. Basically the opposite of Alice. He sleeps on my face which I like and dislike. It’s hard to push a soft furry ball away. Here are some pictures I took of them yesterday.

I’m at my desk going through my rss reader, and look who decided to hang out? Don’t her little mitten paws make you saw ‘Awwww’?

Hope you guys have a great weekend!


animal shelter visit


I have been planting this seed — not so abviously — in Ryan’s brain that we need another cat in our life. When we left for work the other morning, Alice sat in the window and watched us go. Ryan said “Maybe she is lonely when we’re at work…” Victory #1!. Yesterday, I mentioned going to an animal shelter and he didn’t fight me. Victory #2! I think it’s gonna happen.

This one was really hamming it up. I think she really wants to be adopted. Per our vet’s recommendation, we are looking for a young male kitten. But this one was tempting. Look at that tail!!

I love Alice to death but she needs a playmate and I need an animal that won’t get mad when I want to give her snuggles. Wish me luck!


My First Big Crochet Project: Chevron Blanket


I started this blanket February 4th and finished it last night — which is about 5 weeks. I feel really proud of myself for following this all the way through. I’m notorious for starting something and not finishing it. I made this blanket for my friend Rosa and I think it helped that it was for another person. It kept me motivated. I used this pattern — except bigger — and it’s so easy and goes by pretty quickly.

I am really excited to have it done, but I’m already planning a blanket for my Grandma for her 90th birthday next month. I haven’t even bought the yarn yet but I have just under 6 weeks so I think I’ll make it.

I made a couple of other things I want to show you as well and I’ll post about them a little later. Happy Weekend!
