Hello All, another gloomy day in Eastern PA. 36 F when I left my house this a.m. and rain...and grey...heavy rains forecast with possible flooding. BUT, it is Friday and the end of the work week is in sight. I have my usual 10:00 conference call and the rest of the day should float by. I plan to work on Mick Jagged some. Here is what I got done yesterday at lunch.
The yarn is so pretty - Miss Babs Yummy 2 ply. The skein on the left is Dark Orion (and is darker in person) and the right one is Daydream Believer.
I never did get to cake up the rhubarb yarn last night. Col was over for dinner and then we had a break in the rain so we had a small fire in the pit. After that we watched the Jungle episode of Planet Earth II. Fascinating and beautiful (the birds!!). Colin really liked the socks and, in fact, texted me this morning that he is wearing them!
No kitty pictures today, but Fletch told me that yesterday he watched Tyg crossing the yard with something in his mouth. Fletch was sure it was a bird, but fortunately it was a vole. The vole sprang out of Tyg's mouth and then Tyg batted it around a bit. At one point Fletch said the vole turned around and looked directly at Tyg - almost like he was saying "please Mr. Cat, just put me out of my misery...get it over with." Not sure what happened as Fletch was running out for errands. No sign of a body in the yard....(and Tyg doesn't eat them - thank goodness).
And a funny cat story: when I was growing up we had a cat named Kitsy. He was huge -- 25 lbs and solid black. My little brother used to cut pictures of birds out of National Geographic and other magazines and tape them to the wall near Kitsy's food and water bowls. Phil said that he thought Kitsy needed some art to look at while he was dining! LOL
Have a wonderful weekend!
