Knitting last!!

Except for the Zipper I have finished the Blue baby bunting. I'm still debating on the hood vs a hat. Yesterday at our usual Saturday Knit in, just Roger and I today, I sewed up all the seams. Today, I'll find a zipper and get that sewn in and Jyll can feel free to have baby Bryce anytime!!

Also, in the last couple weeks I made a short sleeved cardigan in a fishnet pattern of this yarn. Its more springy looking then the picture. Raspberry, Lime and Orangsicle. With A raspberry ruffle of Lornas Lace worsted down the front and neck. It turned out pretty Sexy, I think.

For you that are wondering how I'm adjusting to my Diabetes meds: I'm doing ok. Getting some annoying side effects.. stomach ache and metallic taste in my mouth. Other then that, I'm good. I learned to use the stoooooooooopid blood meter, WHICH I HATE!! I swear I will Loose the damn weight so I don't have to do this anymore! AHEM, anyway.. doing ok. Not crying about it anymore.
For 11 years I homeschooled someone. Then I took care of a Dieing friend. I've been very bored for 2 years! I was wishing for something interesting to do with my now boring life.. be careful what you wish for! I was looking for maybe a job offer......not an illness!! God has a wierd sense of humor. Good thing I'm a buddist! LOL.
Next Project is the shrug I posted last month,in white or seafoam. And, the Pink sweater outa homespun pink/white/blue.

Oh, What a night.

A story I had to tell!!
Its 2, freaking, am. andI hear a cat scream downstairs..Crystal. My cat (mystic) JETs outa her Hammock( in our bedroom window), screaming her lungs out. She doesn't hit the floor till she's threw the door!! Shes running downstairs because we have a "cat burglar" again! We occasionally get one of two male cats that come threw my girls cat flap to steal thier food. I'm hot on their tails....There he is by the cat flap, looking scared and pitiful. Beautiful Orange sherbet/white fluffy boy. Crystal, is leaning her body against the flap from the outside. I've seen her do this to Mystic..its a joke between them. Mystic(Mitzie) has him from the floor. Ever see a cat do a cartoon run around the room..on the walls? Well he did!! Broke at least one piece of good pottery .. an art piece.. that I was very proud of.
I tried to open the back door to give him an out but it scares him worse so, he runs Upstairs!! I go to open the front door to give him and out and blam......I hear the cat flap. Didn't see a thing. So, I'm not actually sure he's gone. Mitzie is walking around phleming ..searching but seems calm now. I think that was him out the flap...Probably with Crystal chasing him all the way to Canada.
If it wasn't for the pot, I'd be laughing. As it is....I'm not crying about it. This is the pot the City of Mountlake Terrace considered buying 10 years ago. They bought a statue instead. Oh well.....sigh!
Crystal just came in...her search pattern led her up the stairs and down, then out the flap. I'm pretty sure he's not in here. Just in case I'm staying up for a couple hours. Besides my adrenalin is up! I'm not gonna cry!!

If you see the devil..high 5 him and run like a scalded cat ........
Joking, I know..I'm just getting into the spirit of the thing.
