No Knitting With Boots Around

We played!  I did my best to run out all the kitty energy.  I thought he was sufficiently exhausted.  I sat down to knit.  I was trying to act “normal”.  No sudden moves.  Nothing too wiggly to catch his attention. I was hoping he would fall asleep.

He was washing his hands . . a sure sign he was about to fall asleep, right?  No!  Next thing I knew, he had my arm in his mouth!

Before he was tired enough to take a nap, I was bleeding enough that I didn’t want to try knitting, and he was dripping wet from the spray bottle so I gave up knitting, played with the critter on the stick and the laser light and never did wear him out.

Yes, you’ll see the mess in my sewing room but here he is going up a roll of batting.  This is not working out so well for my sewing future.

And, what goes up must come down!

All I can do is shake my head in disbelief . . first, that I have a cat and second, that he’s tearing up everything!

 

 

 

What Plans?

I think I need to pay better attention to reality.  This morning, like most every morning, I figured it would take me an hour or so to get my chores done and then I would be knitting or sewing the rest of the day.  It never seems to happen that way.  It’s after 2 p.m. and I’m just now fixing to start knitting.

Breakfast

Breakfast this morning was quite simple — sausage and sourdough French toast.  As soon as we finished eating, the plan was to go knit.

Then I remembered I had not put up the okra I cut yesterday.

That was 8 packs of sliced okra for the freezer.

Then I remembered there was a venison roast in the fridge that I had thawed so I seasoned that up and put it in the crockpot.

Then I realized there was only a little bread left.  So, I cut it up in to squares.

Seasoned it and added a little olive oil.

And made croutons.  No bread goes to waste around here. It’s either made into bread crumbs or croutons. We have tomato soup on the menu for lunch one day next week so these will be used with that.

Since I had used up all the bread, I had to make more.

Since I made more bread dough, the sourdough had to be fed.

And then I remembered I wanted to make Tomato, Mozzarella, Basil salad so I had to go to the garden to scrounge up some cherry tomatoes and pick some basil.

And just when I thought I was ready to sit down and knit, Vince came in and said . . would you make a pizza tonight?
