It's the final countdown!

I'm ashamed, I really am. I've neglected this sweet, sweet blog for too long. Well, I'm back! And I'm screwed. I just found out that my sister scheduled her bridal shower for August 2. Sure, a fine date and all, besides the fact that it's about A MONTH earlier than I expected! This does not bode well for the heirloom lace beaded silk wrap that I'm *trying* to knit for her. Yeah, yeah, I know the wedding isn't until September. But I waaaant to give it to her at the shooooower! (Sure, I'd love a little cheese with my whine. Thanks for asking! You're a gem.)

Here's the progress so far:

Actually I'm a few inches further along than when I took this picture last week. I'm somewhere between 40% and 50% done. It's taken me about three months to do the first half. Three weeks to finish the rest sounds reasonable. Oh, did I mention I'm helping throw the shower, too? My day job is really going to get in the way of my side projects.

These valentine's roses sure are pretty, but something doesn't look right.

Are those...bite marks??? WTF?

Judging from the way Tela's licking her sizable chops, I'd say so.

Thank you, Pudge. I'm glad you appreciate the gravity of this situation.

lookin' a lot like christmas!

Our first real tree! It's been up for about a week, amazingly with most of its needles still attached. The rest are in Tela's belly. Don't be fooled by her innocent looking pose on the bench.

Who decided I should like birthday cards featuring cats dressed up as humans or doing human things? Fred, apparently. You're probably wondering what kind of card could top last year's gem:

The best part is on the inside, where Fred wrote, "It's funny because it's cats bowling!". Ohhhhhh, now I get it.

Well, check this beauty out:

Classic. The joke here is that the cat on the card looks like Pudge. (I know this because Fred wrote, "It's Pudge!" on the inside.) If Pudge wasn't so freaked out to be posing with her doppleganger on a greeting card you might be able to see the resemblance a little more.

cat + card x (human/square root of ridiculous) = FUNNY!

all good birthdays...

start with a piece of cake!

good things in small packages

Commence birthday week! I got a box of treats this weekend from my lovely Kate. Here's a sample of the goodies:

A mini green-tea infused chocolate bar and the most delicious tangerine lip balm! Everything came all wrapped up in a darling box from October Moon, complete with a scented rose tied on top. Thanks, Kate!! :D
