I’m working on a variety of things at the moment. Tuesday was ‘Quilting Day’ and I got one block finished and another one started. These are the last two blocks to be done.
I’m feeling a bit stalled with this, the extreme heat we’ve been having probably has something to do with it. I normally try and get an hour a day done on it, but yesterday and today are just too hot to have a quilt on my lap.
Yesterday was ‘Working on things for me day’. Why, yes, I have divided my week up into different projects, no, I don’t think it’s at all strange, it works for me, I like lists… Anyway, the socks are coming along nicely and I’m currently knitting the heel flap.
Can I just say again how much I am loving this colourway?
Poor Fat Boy’s days of peace are over. Gorgeous Girl has started taking an interest in him, watching him move around the room and stuff. Last night she started grabbing his fur and giggling hysterically while we were sitting on the couch. Fat Boy was a very good sport and purred loudly during the whole ordeal.
Today Gorgeous Girl is exactly five months and two weeks. Here is her weekly photo.
It feels like time is just slipping away so quickly. I often find myself starting at her trying to fix the moment in my memory. Just simple moments like when she wakes up and smiles at me, the way she snuggles into my shoulder when she’s tired and a million other small things. Who would have thought that someone so small could bring so much joy. I haven’t smiled so much in my whole life.
If Gorgeous Girl decides to sleep then I’ll work on the Advent Calendar this afternoon. I’m excited with how it’s going to come together.
There has been reading.

10. Fugitive Pieces – Anne Michaels
An interesting book. It’s a novel and it explores the lives of survivors of the Holocaust, some very beautiful writing and some ideas that really give pause for thought.
