My poor kidlets are still sick. Today I’ll be staying home with them as my DH really needed to go to a meeting at work. I don’t know if this particular bug is local or if it’s something rampant everywhere. Symptoms include headaches, sore throats and extremely high temperatures that last for days. During her convalescence A2 has taken to planning my future knitting projects. She requested a panda toy and a cat costume for Halloween. Rather than just asking me what’s possible or talking in person (her throat hurts) she writes letters complete with diagrams, which in turn end up taped to the wall outside of my bedroom. This note greeted me yesterday.
Tasha is doing okay. Not great, not terrible, just okay. Her most recent blood results indicate that she has an on-going infection, but we already knew that. The vet agrees that heroics and invasive tests, etc. are overkill for a geriatric kitty, but she is on a new medication. The brown, goopy stuff is horribly messy to give her and for several minutes after taking it she drools excessively and makes this face.
Bits of knitting time here and there have been slowly adding up. This was the top-down with the cabled midriff that is now the top-down with the narrow eyelet band and lace bottom sweater. It’s mindless to knit, but until more yarn arrives it’s at a stand still.
I’m wanting to make something lacey, perhaps a Snowdrop Shawl. We’ll see what happens with the girls and time today.
Cindy spoke of fashionable taxidermy this morning, which reminded me of this more unusual example of the art.
