The Winds of Time...

Has it really been a week?

Gosh. The AC Man husband was home for twelve hours, and in his time home made it possible for me to spend the rest of the week lying by this.

For the record, it was set at the highest temperature it will accept. I didn't want frost, I just didn't want melted lungs either.

As you can see, Aslan was enjoying the air as well (he would have liked it a little cooler, actually, and with the inclusion of a personal massuese).

Back in Oscar's room, you can see who gets the large, comfy cushion, and who gets bullied to the back corner.

Oscar was definitely hit by the heat harder than anyone else, since I have the sense to sit in front of a fan and not think a cat could beat me up, and Trevor and Aslan are inherently jungle creatures.

But he's feeling much better now and he and Trevor have been wrestling around the house as is their norm (it's okay, I stop things before Oscar gets hurt) and generally just being best friends as cute as they come.

I've been knitting a few things that you'll see far down the road, and spinning this, for someone special. (regarding this classification: giving me gorgeous, yummy, hand-dyed yarn makes you my friend. Not tackling me in the parking lot when I steal gorgeous, yummy, hand-dyed yarn out of your hand and swear that eventually I might give you handspun in return makes you someone special.)

I stole traded for her tourmaline colorway, you should get some good stuff too.

This guy has nothing to do with anything, except that if I'd had $500 in my pocket at New Hampshire he might be sharing Oscar's room right now. He and I made good friends on my bathroom runs, and he was for sale, and how could you resist a face like that?

You get to look at a picture of him (in my heart, his name is Henrique) for a moment, then head over to Rob to look at her big haul as the winner of 20060 socks. She's also got a brand new kitty, and she has no idea what she's in for... the quirks, the neurosis, the insanity, and all of it so far surpassed by love to degrees she never thought possible....

Thank goodness for the A/C man - did you ever hear the song Telephone Man? I can put it in the bathroom I can put it in the hall...

Obviously - pre-cell phone days.

Henrique - what's not to love?

Add 2 more socks for me, please. I'm feeling pretty proud of myself; I've finished two second socks that've been around for nearly a year!

That is SO funny -- you stop it before Oscar gets hurt. (Although I do understand the concept.) Glad to see you are getting some relief from the heat. Makes knitting and spinning so much more fun.

Hey Amie, It seems you are over your total, but I finished two more socks as well. You can add them in, if you are still adding!
