Sorry these took forever, these are the pics of our wonder kitty, Boris. He's a big a fatty, not as much as some I've seen but getting there, and he's our lover-kitty/guard-kitty. And trust me when I say guard kitty I mean he's actually attacked someone for coming into the house when we weren't home. These pics are of him with his new lion-cut haircut. He tends to matte so we have him shaved periodically. The first two are when he got home and the last two are after a little re-growth, he is so soft and nice to pet when he's shaved, and you don't come back with a hand covered in fur.
Rules: The rules are: List 7 random things about yourself. Tag 7 others, direct them to your site to get the rules.
meme - [meem], n. A unit of cultural information, such as a cultural practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another.
1. I love Joss Whedon's creativity and sense of humor. I am a major Buffy, Angel, and Serenity/Firefly fan.
2. I would love to go to master's school for a masters in Library Science and Information Systems, but I would love it more if I could get a bigger new home out in the country. (The house is one hubby and I designed on Graph paper.)
3. I'm very insecure about Motherhood, I worry that I'm not any good and that I'm going to royally screw up my kids and they'll hate me forever every day. I love being a mom, but wish some days that I was working too, I haven't not had at least one job from 15 until the twins.
4. I HATE cleaning, in any form, but I do it begrudgingly. In a perfect world I would have a maid.
5. I love giving gifts and having someone love it, it's those little things that make my world go round. At the same time, I worry myself silly thinking they will hate the gift and never really believe that they like it.
6. I love surprises I don't know about. If someone tells me I'm to get a surprise I want to know now so just don't tell me. [Curiosity won't just kill the cat. If you know what I mean.]
7. I don't like doing these meme things because I never know if I'm doing them right and I hate to be boastful of myself. I'm my biggest critic and I usually get it wrong.
So I need some help from all of you knowledge-filled knitters/spinners out there. I would like to get a spinning wheel, it needs to be compact, I think a single treadle would be best but don't really know the difference, I would like to do mostly wool and other animal fiber. Other than that and most importantly it needs to be very affordable, and that is above all, especially the compact. So please, please help me.
So not much happening here, but the hospital is rockin'. My s-i-l just had a baby girl 7 lbs 5 oz and healthy. We're going to let her rest today and tomorrow off to go see her as soon as T is home. Other than that, the children are being crazy and I'll be posting some pics for you all soon on the finished dishcloth. Now to the lace baby hat, need to get that done pronto now, although I suspect it's going to be a little big on the tyke.
I had an interesting weekend, we went to the in-laws on Saturday so that hubby could help put up a patio "cover" it's very open and wood so not really a cover but I'll have to take a pic to show you. The monkeys were pretty good over there so of course on Sunday . . . Hell broke loose and the monster ran amok. They were into everything and were just being their general brand of naughtiness, now don't get me wrong but when they are up by 8:30 and we couldn't get out of the house until noon. They were actually pretty good at the yarn and wool festival, but they tend to be pretty good when we're out. Ju got to pet some animals and we saw the end of a shearing.
Get this I didn't buy a single thing, I was stunned and I believe in some shock and now regret not buying anything. T said he would buy me a spinning wheel though if I do the research, eee.
Than off to dinner, I chose Acapulco's Mexican, it was good food, HORRIBLE service, T and I are sticklers about service and get very frustrated when things go awry. She was an absolute ding bat, grr. The twins ate pretty good and Se had some beans, and Ju of course didn't eat much, that girl.
Then we ran to the Source so the munchkins could take a bit of a nap, Ju was out, so I just ran in myself, I bought 4 dice for me, 2 for T, two Kabuki comics, and a Knights of the Dinner Table for T. We then stopped at Dunn Bros for some smoothies and Blockbuster for some movies (The Queen and Smokin' Aces). And then home.
The whole days driving was INSANE, we almost had a car accident at the very least 3 times that stand out dramatically, once was super super scary back end of car coming up way to fast, oye. When we arrived home safely, we messed with our again wild children to get to bed, did they fall asleep like good little children, nope, they stayed up until at least eleven being naughty in their room, argh.
So anywho, T wants a "Voyageur" hat like we saw at the festival and of course I'm told no problem finding a pattern, nope no luck so far, so if you know one, otherwise I'll be making something up. We're looking for pre 1600s style. While I researched that, we watched The Queen.
I was disappointed it should have been called Diana, because it was missing the whole part where it's really about you know the Queen. T and I both thought they would show her when she started her reign and the circumstances, how she was in the war, etc, etc. Than I had to wait up for my show to play again at eleven then bed by one for me, T 9.30, I should have followed him. I have a tension headache and need more sleep, but Se decided 7.20 was when we should wake up. So off to take care of the children.
So I've seen a couple of other blogs write about this and decided I should join in as well. I'm not the best at stitching but I'll try my best. Here is the link so you can sign up too. The Mother's Day Project
