Kitten in the craft box

So, I’m trying to work on this latch hook rug kit, but a certain cat has other plans for the box the craft kit came in.

Perfect night

I seriously must be an old woman in a 23 year olds body. I’m happy right now simply because I have 1. A blanket on my lap 2. A cat on my lap 3. Some stitching going on.

It’s also nice to start on something NOT Christmas related. [side note- I thought needlepoint was basically cross stitch with yarn, but there’s a bigger difference than I thought…so that will be fun to work on something new as well.]

Aaaand it just got doubly-awesome with the addition of cat #2 and a glass of wine from Morgan. 🙂 (“I can’t get up, theres a cat on my lap!” really works well in our house.)

How does your garden grow?

The Portland sun and rain is doing wonders for our garden and I couldn’t be more excited.  I can’t wait to harvest and cook with our homegrown fruits and veggies.  (Picked an almost-done green onion today and tried to eat it raw….I don’t recommend it).

Squash Blossoms: these were taken a few days ago and already there are a handful more blooms.

These peas were among many volunteers in my friend’s garden that I dug up and brought home. I thought they were sweet peas, but don’t those have white flowers? hmm..

And of course, where would I be without my handy helper, Knitty Kitty?  She diligently hunts the various bugs and eats them.  It is part of her reparations for eating all of my leek starts earlier in the season!  (In her defense, they did look an awful lot like her cat grass that she is ALLOWED to eat…)

I can hardly believe that my garden is blooming, when it all used to look like this:
