What a crazy week (relatives from both our families were in town)! During the madness, the doorbell rang at a very early hour and I yelled at hubby to answer it because the only time it rings is when a parcel is being delivered and I was only expecting one parcel - my bday present from P-la. Lookit what she sent me:
A very pretty purples cowl! P-la - if you read this, let me know what the yarn is cuz I love it and I want to buy some!!!
ETA: The yarn is from Twisted Fiber Art Evolutions.
She also sent me some gorgeous Claudia Hand Painted fingering:
Thanks so much, P-la! I love it all. BTW, the cowl looks great on me, too ;)
We've had a mole living in one of my flower beds all summer. It hasn't been able to break through the weed barrier so a few weeks ago, it moved into our lawn. It has slowly been working its way towards the street. This is what my sidewalk looked like last week:
There are 14 mole hills. That's not counting the ones coming from the house to the sidewalk. I have cleaned up the dirt piles and there haven't been anymore new ones so maybe he's moved on.
I took Ricky to the vet today. His appetite has dropped and his weight has been going down & then up. The vet thinks Ricky is just being picky so we've got a new food to mix with the stuff that he doesn't like. We'll see how it goes but I think we're going to end up paying for some expensive surgery (to gather intestinal samples). I don't want his pretty belly shaved!
Ricky sez, "I am mad at you, Mom. No more cowls or trips to the vet."
