Here is a picture of our sweet Nala . Her Birthday was on Friday and she turned 11 years old. She is a wonderful pet and companion and we love her very much.
The rest of the weekend was pretty average.
Patrick had a friend to stay and I took all of the kiddies to Munster on Saturday. We all had a wander and then I spent an hour in Starbucks with my Chai Tea Latte and a book. This does wonders for my equilibrium and getting me through the rest of the week.
My needlework goal for the weekend was to finish this pair of socks and the picture is the proof that I did :-) It is only my second pair and before socks I had only knit a scarf ,so I think they came out pretty good. They are meant for my Mom and although the foot looks really long , they are a 39 and should fit her perfectly. The two socks are not the same color rapaport , but the story of why not is long and boring so I will skip it. Rest asured I will not make this mistake again. My Mom loves the color red so I think she will enjoy these and they will keep her feet nice and warm next winter.
The Hyacinth is my attempt at bringing a little spring into the house. I love the way they look and smell , but after two days, I discovered that the burning eys and sneezing fits that I was suffering ,were only happening in the family room. I had an" aha "moment and moved the flowers to the dining room where I don't spend much time and the symptoms went away. Bummer that I can't have them upstairs , but nice that I made the connection fairly quickly!
Snow , Snow, go away and come again another day.
Rachael wants to put on her sandels and go out and play.
