Let the wild rumpus begin!

Firstly - I've been unable to contact the person who wanted the Dandy Dreams pattern. PEOPLE. You need to have your profile public if you'd like to be contacted you when you win. Just a small tip. This is the second time in a row I can not find the person who actually wanted the item I was trying to pass on. I'm not sure who you are Barb, even after scanning through all my followers and trying some Google-fu, so please contact me if you do want that pattern. Thanks! :)

Secondly, we got to pick up the kittens this week!
Tuesday, to be exact. :) :) :)


Turns out I'm reallllllllllllly horrible at taking pictures of squirmy, always-in-motion beasties though so getting photos has proved....challenging. I have to take like 20 pics to get ONE good one. Heh. Anyhoo. It took a couple days for them to settle in but now they LURVVVVVVVV us and are purry little cuddle monsters - in between trying to bite and kick your ass, of course.(Oh kittens.....I forgot how bitey they are!) They are confined to the office for the moment (I have a screen gate for the doorway so they aren't 'locked away' though) so imagine me trying to type this post out while kittens are climbing up my back, walking across the keyboard going after my fingers, jumping at the pointer on the monitor, etc. It's a little exhausting! It's a good thing they are cute. It is fun too though. :)

 They were the only two babies in their litter so they are really bonded and do EVERYTHING together like twins. No names just yet but I'm working on it. I wish they would stop growing an inch a day. I feel like I should be able to HEAR them growing, they are getting so big so fast. (9 week birthdays coming up this Sunday.)

So. Not a lot of time for projects and stuff this week. I think I knit about an inch on a pair of socks all week and that is it. 

Also this week, was the annual St. James book sale. Oooooooo, I love this and look forward to it every year! It's a MAD HOUSE when they open their doors. (I know I've posted photos before.) A sweaty, elbow rubbing, packed in like sardines mad house. Totally totally crazy. In a good way. (Everyone is very jovial and good natured about it.)

  I didn't get as many as last year but that's ok. I have a lot of books at home at the moment so I didn't want to overdo it. Got a couple for the hubby, grabbed a few JD Robb books to complete my collection and the rest I know nothing about but kinda looked randomly interesting. A $.50- $1 church book doesn't need to be a masterpiece, you know? I just like reading and can't pass up the opportunity to get some good books at a good price. (Libraries don't work for me because I read in spurts so I would forever be bringing things back late.) It's always fun to poke around regardless of what you end up with.

As far as last years church books, I read MOST of them. I still haven't gotten through all of the JD Robbs I got last year because I'm reading those in order and I haven't worked my way far enough in the series to get to them yet. I will eventually though. I just started the series last summer and I think I'm already up to #13 or something. I could make it through them quickly if that's ALL I read but I like reading 2-3 other books in between. It's a bit daunting to think there are now 35 books in that series though. Yeeesh!

Blah, blah, blah, I'm just boring people now with my chatter, I'm sure.

One last pic.........

Just couldn't resist those new notions kits from Victorian Motto Shoppe. Nope. Did you get one too?

The cutest kittens ever! I'm not a cat person, but even so, these guys melt my heart. I don't think I would like the bitey part, but if you can take it with such good spirits, it can't be too bad. Good luck in finding the perfect names.

Jackie said...

What cuties! Those little faces!

It looks like you had a good haul from the book sale too.

Vickie said...

Oh. My. Goodness! Love, love, love. So very precious. Good for you guys!

Cath said...

Your kitties are just gorgeous. I would so love to pick them up for a snuggle.
We have a library book sale coming up next week. Can't wait. Hoping to get some for me and the kids . X

Catherine said...

Julie said...

Margaret said...

Ok, those kitties are stealing the show! Soooooo cute!!!!! They sound very playful. lol! Love that package you got from Victorian Motto. Pretty! Fun book sale as usual too, from the looks of it!

Cole said...

Cutie pies!

I couldn't resist either... currently waiting for both the Halloween & Christmas goodies in the post ;)

Pumpkin said...

They are too ADORABLE! Look at those wee faces :) Can't wait to hear what you'll be naming them.

A book? Reading? What's that? LOL!

Penny said...

Your new kittens are so cute!! I just love the little gray one's eyes. You're in for a lot of fun. :) Lots of good books to read if you can tear yourself away from all that cuteness bounding around. :)

Kellie from Indiana said...

I just heart me some fluffy kitties! And dogs too! Poofy, fluffy baby animals - love!!

Adorable kitties! Can't wait to see them grow as you show them on the blog. And you WILL, won't you????

I'm not a library person either. I like to read at my own pace and not worry whether it has to be returned on a certain date.

That notion kit is pretty. Reminds me that fall won't be too far.

Veronica said...

LOL! Google-fu... Love that expression. Definitely something I gotta remember.

Those two kittens are too adorable. So have you named them yet? ^^

Gorgeous lampwork bead in the photo on your latest post. Love the irridescance of it. If the Dandelion dreams pattern is still available, I'd love to stitch it. Love having sentiments like this handing on my walls as inspiration for all. Jane

PS; Glad you enjoyed your trip to the zoo. Next time just travels north to visit here and my family could help you out with their antics. lol
