Who me? You're the one who left the cupboard open. Opal checking out the pantry staples. She's about 4 feet up.

In the knitting realm.

After three tries my mind finally "got" how this pattern works. At least I think I do. Getting old is not for the faint of heart. I'm trying out some Rowen California Cotton (discontinued).

My first Bugga!

I am in love with this pattern. I found the book it's printed in and who knows. I may get around to making it eventually. I just don't knit fast enough.

My first purchase from The Loopy Ewe. madelinetosh - Tosh sock.

I finally dug into the floor freezer and pulled out 44lbs of plums to make wine with.

The Garden

A greenhouse full of seedlings and it has now come down to three coleus. Still so much to do though - weeding, rearranging, watering. More weeding.


Rust never sleeps and apparently neither do earwigs. Hollyhocks.

Succulent display. Hen and Chicks, various other succulents.

Love Opal's expression. She has no shame whatsoever...

That Vogue cable cardi looks appealing. Would make a lovely vest or short-sleeved cardi too. ARGH I know what you mean about knitting too slowly. There is SO much I want to knit! Can't possibly live long enough.

I've been saying that Lucy, the new cat of the house, has Siamese in her and looking at that second photo of Opal (?), I'm now 100% convinced. The eyes, the markings, the expression....

I am Opal. Able to leap tall cabinets in a single bound.

I am Opal. Able to catch birds with a single leap.

I am Opal. Hear me purrrr!
