Catnip PARTY!

Zoe's birthday was on March 29th and I've finally gotten a chance to upload the photos of her with her presents. We got a GREAT catnip mat from etsy seller MeowWow.

She shared with Brother, too.

First Flowers of Spring

It's simply gorgeous out this weekend. It's supposed to be 81 today, which is rare at best in Upstate NY in April. I'm enjoying every minute of it. The sky is a crystalline, perfect blue and the birds are beginning to match the brightness of the flowers with their colors for Spring.

Besides admiring the first few blooms of spring, I need to get organized with my projects for this spring.

  1. Finish the embroidered baby quilt for my brother's baby
  2. Make birthday gifts for my nieces Alexis and Jewel, then for Lauren (too many birthdays all at once!)
  3. Find and hire a receptionist for work. I have 30 resumes to go through. Not a fun spring activity.
  4. Graduation gift for my sister Becky (no hints here!)
  5. Wedding gift for my sister Becky (hey, quit reading!)
  6. Hmm...I'll be adding to this list as things pop into my head.

Glove Critters

My sister Sarah and I made some glove critters from Miyako Kanamori's book. Sarah has been visiting since last Saturday. She's 17 (the youngest!) and I remember when she was born (I was 12) so it's strange that she's already 17. Makes me feel really old!

We have also been crocheting amigurumi and Sarah has come to work with me for the day a few times, too. Work has been very busy this past week, with a lot of sick patients to worry about. On Friday I had to perform five euthanasias, the most I have ever had to do in one day. That's a HARD day. It's nice, though, to be able to come back home and work on some nice, quiet crafts.
