Alrighty then! I’m very happy to know that my readership is full of kilt lovers. You are all a VERY funny group! I’m sorry to say that I’ve exhausted my kilt pictures, but maybe if we’re all well behaved, some of our friends in Scotland could occasionally throw us a bone. Ahem.
In the meantime, here’s a picture of TheEmptyNestChild and Sirius getting to know each other.
Ok, just kidding. I WISH Sirius and Cassie could come for a visit! Instead, we’re just as pleased to have TheSecondChild and his new 5 month old kitty, Paul, home for the Thanksgiving break. Scruff and Paul have spent the last day tormenting getting to know each other. They spent awhile sizing each other up, and then finally, Scruff threw the first punch.
He’s bigger than Paul and somewhat intimidating, but in spite of the fact that it looks like he’s going in for the kill, he’s been very gentle.
It didn’t take Paul very long to catch on though, and he soon escaped from Scruff’s grip.
He decided to show the portly old guy a thing or two and got him in a headlock,
and then threw him to the ground.
Before long, Scruff threw up his paws in surrender and begged for mercy.
And being the gentle, adorable kitty that he is, Paul complied and they took a two-minute breather.
Then they backed up and started all over again. That happened on and off all day except for naps and bedtime when we had to separate them so we could all get some rest. I suspect there will be more fun today, when we let them get together again.
Other than that excitement, there’s not much going on around here except that the $#@#$@ bobbin winder on my beloved Hester broke yesterday. That means she’ll have to go in for repair — right in the middle of my heavy sewing season. We. Are. Not. Happy. ;-(
So, instead of dwelling on that, here are a few happy things to think about:
- How adorable is this??? I’d love to make something that pretty!
- With Hester out of action for awhile, I’m really hoping to knit a hat or two for Jean. She’s going to collect hats for the homeless in NYC and take them there in mid-December. If you’re a knitter, you might want to give it some thought — it’s a good way to use up scraps and a simple hat really doesn’t take very long to make.
- Raina is going to be sharing some Christmas traditions over the next month. If I can think of any ;-), I think I’ll join her after Thanksgiving. Maybe you’d like to play too?
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
