Busy busy

Yes I have been knitting. I just have not been posting the stuff. The girls have been keeping us busy, and I tend to spend my off time with them. Knitting on straight needles is interesting because they try to bite the needles. So I've found circular works much better. Eila (the calico) had a piece of yarn so far down her throat 1 more minute and I would have had to pull it out via an alternate route. The weather outside here is gorgeous today. I did some weed pulling, clearing out the "willie nillie garden". H loves to call it that. But there is some method to my madness. I planted a beautiful green/pink echinechea from white flower farm. I also planted some pink lily of the valley. I have been wanting them for some time so this year I splurged on them. The girls have fun watching the action outside the front door now. I can't believe how long Rajne is . She's super soft and has beautiful gold eyes. All three girls have such beautiful features. We are lucky to get such pretty girls. So, I bought Stephanie Japel's book. I didn't even realize that she was glampyre until I read the bio in the book. I used to read her blog quite frequently. And of course we all know about the one skein wonder. I have to tell ya- I had this yarn in my stash. Cascade 220- three balls of it!!!!!! I am so proud of myself using stash yarn.

Kitties like fishes

We recently acquired a fish tank from my inlaws. So after cleaning it up my hubby bought some new fish yesterday and the girls l*o*v*e* them. You can see their brains trying to figure out how they are going to get inside the fish tank (hehe). What's pretty amazing is that Eila is actually perched on hubby's arm here. She usually doesn't sit still for more than 5 seconds. She's the "busy" one. When it comes time to nap she fights it, struggling to keep her eyes open as long as possible. She's just like me!!!! And I picked her out of the liter(hmmm, strange....) Anyway the other girls had just as much fun. My bet is that the "ninja" cat- Rajne (the black/white one) will be the first to find her way on top of the tank. She's slick- she came sailing over the 3 gates I have up in front of the sun room. And then there is zoe belle. She's an affectionate one now. She was knick named skittles because she was so skitish, but now she's all about givin mommy and daddy love. I took the pic of her in the sunroom while I was sewing last weekend. I couldn't listen to the hoarse meows anymore so I broke down and let her in the room with me. There are too many plants in there so I'm nervous about them eating the greenery...
