How about a ghostly silhouette of Shelli taken a couple of hours ago before I promptly fell out into nap-bliss. Shelli has wrought havoc, snuggled, and has now returned to the windowsill behind the towel, enjoying views of the outside and the birds. And, hopefully, not the Tomcat that seems to have decided that Shelli is hot stuff. Two nights ago, he tormented her…Joey had to scare him off twice and he brought a “present” for us, which Joey was able to ascertain was the leg of a bird. Thanks, Tom. It’s a wonder that Shelli hasn’t peed EVERYWHERE, but I’ve been doing lots of encouraging and loving and reminding her that she’s our little princess and no stupid Tomcat can take her place. Unfortunately, she got sick while we were out on our breakfast/Hobby Lobby excursion today, so we came home to puke piles in a few places all over the living room. She’s been a little puny, so I hope it’s just a little bug or something that’ll work itself out.
Life has much turmoil right now; that, and letting Joey use my netbook for his paper are why I haven’t blogged much in the last two weeks. Nothing bloggable at this point, unfortunately, so I’ll just be praying and seeing what happens and then we’ll go from there. However, I will say that I am more positive than I have been in a long time in life’s direction and regaining my creativity and a sense of purpose.
On the knitting front, I’ve finished my cabled scarf that I was working on during our Ohio trip a couple of weeks ago! And, I bought some yarn for a baby gift that I’m working on for my favorite HEAB‘s forthcoming HEABlet.
So, all in all, things are pretty good. Joey is working on his final paper, which I’ll proofread next Friday, and then next Saturday, we’re going HIKING!! Yay!! This’ll be my first hiking trip since I sprained my ankle last year. I don’t think I’ll need to wrap my ankles, and I’m really excited to try hiking in my Vibram Fivefingers:). I think that’ll be interesting and hopefully it’ll help me to have better contact with the trail.
Stay tuned for further updates:).
