Yup, we are getting "back to normal" around these parts. A few things I want to share with all you peeps on the internets...
1. I am doing "selfish" knitting. KNitting for moi. Baby blanket? on hold. Socks? going on. Mom's sweater? on hold. Cute sweater from new book? cast on and almost to the armpits. :) There is a lot behind all of this and to make a VERY long story short: I'm never selfish. (PC will agree with conditions) So, I want to knit for me. :) I am working on making me happy (see more about this later)
2. I joined 2 knitting groups! I will be attending my first MetroWest Knitting Guild meeting (Monica... do you belong to this one?) this Wednesday. I am soooo excited! Oh, and I joined a local SnB.. and oh my goodness... I felt immediately at home! :) What a wonderful group of women + 1 guy... they are funny, witty, good natured and are able to talk about EVERYTHING.
3. PC and I became "parents" this weekend. Yup. To a FUR-BABY! We adopted a 3 year old cat named "Pumpkin". She's the color of Maple Syrup and so teeny tiny. We think she was a runt. Also, I need some help from all the cat owners out there. (ahem... Sandy? Laurie? Wendy?)
a. we were told that she was 3 years old and "fixed"
b. she appears to be in heat ( a lot of bum rubbing on her part... moving her tail for "access" and she's ...oh, this will get me some google hits... oozing a little from her who-ha?)
c. she has great affection for doing this to PC
I will have pictures of the Pumpkin soon. She is getting used to us and vice versa. She came out of hiding Saturday night (we got her around 4... she started to completely act normal last night) and we thinks she loves us. I was never a "cat person", but this one stole my heart. Now, here is a BIG question:
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF SHE'S BEEN FIXED?
A skein of yarn to the first person who tells me a clear,scientific (i.e. look here, feel there) non-icky (I'm not sticking anything anywhere) way to tell if she's spayed.
Her prior owners were in a hurry to dump her at Angell and leave her there. They were required to fill out a "personality" thing on her, one question being "is she spayed?" They said yes. I think they lied. I need to know. Cause if so... she's going back to the shelter to get fixed. We cannot have all the neighborhood cats in the yard looking to see if Pumpkin can come out and "play." Oh, and she isn't interested in my yarn. At all. *yay*
More photos and knitting updates tomorrow.
:) Mini and PC....oh, and Pumpkin too!
