My excuses for not blogging much lately...

We are dogsitting:


I won't tell you how much he weighs, but he probably outweighs you. Easily outweighs any single founding member of KOL.


She just looks cute and innocent. She's actually like that kitten in the youtube funny cats video, the one that squeezes under the door. You know the one I mean? Yeah, no gate, no fence, no rope, nothing can keep her in. She must be free...


Mocha is a sweetie. She's just insane, that's all. Yes, truly, but in a happy way.

I'm dog-tired these days, because someone's not sleeping very well.

Hmm, I guess it's not the dogs. Mocha certainly looks comfortable enough.

Yeah, that's the one. He's been having nightmares. Last night it was about the carrots*. I guess they were coming to get him. As a parent, I can't tell you the horror that the words "mummy, the carrots, don't let them get me, the carrots, noooooo" can bring when they pierce through the night to awaken you from a sound sleep. Your heart stops and your blood runs cold. Carrots can be scary, you know.* I found the carrot monster here. Also check out the Love monster, the Woolen glove monster and the Chair monster. You'll think twice before you sit down again!

Look at this...

That's from Jan Messent's Knitted Gardens. Do have a look inside when you get to amazon. They have little knitted monks in there!

Oh, and this one:

Again, make sure you click on the search inside option. Lookit the little knitted knight, and the teeny knitted wizard!

Sadly, I do not own either of those. However, if anyone wants to knit teeny tiny animals and barns and bales of hay, I can lend you this one:

Again, have a look inside. There's a little mama slinging her little baby inside, and teeny tiny dogs and cats and chickens and horses and barns...oh my!

For those of you who don't read Lime and Violet's daily chum, I strongly recommend you add it to your bloglines. That's where I found out about Knitted Gardens, which of course lead me to other titles. Oh, and didn't you always want a turkey?
