Meet Molly


She’s a 4 1/2 year old dalmation mix, and she comes home tomorrow 🙂



This guy flew right into our yard this morning and spent ten minutes looking for a snack in our oak tree:


He hopped around and posed like he knew we were watching.


I put in a squirrel feeder las week – its on a bungee cord, so the squirrels bounce and spin all over – really funny!  I raised it up a little yesterday because they were getting to it way too easily, and they’ve found some very creative ways to get to it:


So THAT’S why those flowers look so crappy 😛

I’m knitting today, then felting tonight – we’ll see how it all turns out.

Long Week.

Light duty is BORING.  I’m on a ten pound lifting restriction, which really limits what I can do and as a result I’m BORED!  The shoulder is feeling a little better and a little worse at the same time – the sharp pain is gone and my range of motion is back, but even just everyday activities and no lifting or pushing/pulling makes it really sore.  I have my first physical therapy appointment on Monday morning, followed immediately by my reassessment appointment at occupational health – can you say ow?  As much as I’m bored and I want to get back on the road, I want to finish at least a week (ugh…or two) of physical therapy so I’ll feel really comfortable going back to work and I won’t hurt myself again trying to work through the soreness.

I’ve had to get up really early all week (6am…which is exceptionally early when you consider my usual schedule has me getting up at 10am at the earliest), so I pretty much crash when i get home, so not much knitting.  I ordered some sock yarn from knitpicks, and some bulky wool to make some felted bowls.  Not sure why, but I have an urge to make felted bowls.  I’m on an organizational kick – I got some small boxes from work, perfect for storing (organizing!) all the little things that make up my junk drawer(s).  I also got a label maker, to label my little boxes.  I’m in heaven!  This weekend I organize.  Or, probably more realistically, think about organizing and plan what I’m going to do and then just watch Gilmore Girls reruns and knit.

World’s Fastest FO

I finished the sweater – less than 7 days from start to finish. Not bad! (I won’t mention that it’s a baby sweater, size 12 months – sounds much less impressive.)

Check out the buttons. They’re turtles. So cute.

Even Jake likes it – I think he’s going to claim it…its about the right size too!

You know what that means? My cat is the size of a 12 month old child. But bigger. And furrier.
