My Feelings Exactly

Ever wonder what cats do when you’re at work all day? I had a chance to see firsthand as I spent the first of a few upcoming vacation days cleaning house and waiting for my friends to show up. Here’s what the cats did:

Calypso, more-or-less conked out.

Darwin, in his favorite belly-to-the-wall lounging position

I think they had the right idea. I was a fairly busy bee most of the day but I did get to spend a solid couple of hours finishing The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood (fabulous, heartwrenching book, btw). I can’t remember the last time I had that much guilt-free time to just sit, by myself, and quietly read. It was nice and probably good to get it in now before my friends and I get to where we’re going: a 10-years-since-we-met-Cornell-‘family’-reunion in Cape Cod. I can’t wait to see everyone for longer than the timespan of a wedding! So far, we’ve all gathered together from our various corners of the country once every year since graduation. I love that.

In knitting news, I’ve been doing my best to work on my Zombie Shawl but life has been intervening. I’m hoping I find time to catch up with things this week. I think I’m going to go with the darker colorway for the lace, thanks for chiming in! Since I have no knitting to show you, have some pretty yarn:

The lovely folks at The Verdant Gryphon periodically get together to have ‘drunken dye parties’ and then sell the resulting skeins as special, one-off colorways. I had not yet purchased one but was very happy to win this fun skein of Bugga in a lottery on Ravelry!

Happy Friday, everyone. 🙂 My your weekend be as chillaxing as my cats’ weekends will likely be.
