Mickey and Roxie wanted to go out and Scamp wanted to come in last night and while I had the door open, little Duncan was out like a shot! He's been going out a little here, a little there -- during the day -- but this was his first
jailbreak outing in the dead of night. He ran out so fast that I didn't even see which way he went! I called several times before I went up to bed, came back down and called some more after I'd read for a while. No Duncan.
I was very relieved when DH carried the little scoundrel upstairs and put him in my arms this morning! He purred and cuddled for a minute, then ran off to see what his housemates were up to! The pic is from over the weekend -- sometimes he's so relaxed, he just lays in your arms like that (in this pic, he's already starting to "unlax" a bit). I'm going to have to get out the tape measure next time -- it's amazing how long this tiny little kitty is!
Never mind that the consensus is to get the glasses I want -- I wear them everyday, I deserve to have nice ones, etc. I called my local eye doc's office (where I got my last pair) to see how much replacement lenses would be -- $260! Add another $50, at least, for a replacement sunclip and it doesn't take a genius to figure out that a whole brand spankin' new pair with all the bells and whistles is definitely the way to go. I like to have at least one back-up pair -- two is better (one at home, one in my car) -- so I'm doing it! My appointment isn't 'til the 21st, though, so I'll be lucky to have them before May. Thanks for all your advice and reasoning -- and encouragement to treat myself right!
I'm still working on Goldie's sleeves. I'm nearly finished with the increases and it shouldn't take too long after that. My visit to the Isle of Sleeve seems to be long, but it'll be nice that they'll both be finished and exactly the same! After that, it's just the collar. So far, I've been very good at sticking to my unproclaimed plan to at least finish the knitting of Goldie before casting on anything else.
Ann, you'll be happy to know that the Cold Turkey Chicken Viking Hat has been getting some use 'round here. It was Hat Day at the middle school yesterday... I know y'all want one, so join the knit-along!
