Purl’s Giveaway Winners & Winter Fun

November purl
Thanks to everyone who commented and messaged about our little baby kitty. The vet said that she was even younger than we thought, probably seven weeks. She's on meds to get rid of the nasty wormies and is acting more playful every day. She's even tiny next to our small cat, who's seven pounds of pure fluff!

Oooh, my joy overflows, we're on Craftlit, with the delightful Heather Ordover.

You know I love me some classic and intriguing literature, plus she talks about fun podcast-y things like historical background to the books,her knitting, her writing and other topics-of-interest. She's reading Jane Austen's Persuasion right now, which is actually the one Jane Austen book new to me! Yay.  I can't recommend this podcast highly enough. It's one of my all-time faves. Thanks, Heather.

So much generously-given yarn from the Knit-In, oh, lovely. Autumn colors for you today…

Happy Saint Patty’s Day

Saint pattys 3

Leprechauns visited our house during the night and moved all of our green things around. They left green fruit on the floor in each kid's room, put green hair elastics on the bath toys, and found our Valentine's heart.

We know it was them by the green glittery dust they left about. They also played some pranks–an eraser pet get drafted as pirate lookout

And we found green Crocs on the rocking-chair handles.

The leprechauns didn't color the milk green, though, the kids did that themselves. Now we have lots of green milk. Mmm. Buppa also helped us figure out that the kids are three-sixteenths Irish.

Today I get to listen to Chapter 6 of Persuasion on CraftLit–how I love that podcast. English major!

This afternoon, a small photoshoot featuring a delicious baby. Or two. Baby cheeks are better than green milk any day of the week in my book!
