Hi. I’m MacKenzie. The Mother of Cats has spent the day reading a book, so I’ve taken over here to share the week with you.
She has been cleaning this week. Crazy. She kept muttering about cat hair, vacuuming, the importance of guarding against wool moths… Impossible to understand! Yellow Boy is very upset because the furniture got moved around…
and she even washed my cat blanket. Sigh. It took forever for it to dry. I know. I counted.
She hung out new flowers on the deck…
and sewed a quilt top with roses on it. It’s OK, I guess; the green highlights my eyes. Instead of quilting it, though, she stopped and made matching bed socks. I don’t know why she stopped quilting. I only messed with the machine a FEW times…
She said I was exhausting her. Hey. She washed my blanket. I need to lay on something!!
All the neighborhood children are out of school now and playing out front. She, however, won’t let me go out to play with them.
I even asked nicely!!
Thank heavens I get to play in the backyard. The catmint is coming right along…
Sigh. I told Yellow Boy to stop doing that!!
Well, that’s the week. Its nice and hot outside now, and the Mother of Cats is in the lawn chair reading her book and eating leftover Chinese take out. I’m in camouflage waiting for a moth. Or maybe a garter snake. If that darn squirrel comes down I’ll give him a chase that he won’t quickly forget…
June is for cats!
Notes from the Mother of Cats:
The socks are
Om Shanti bedsocks by Alice yu. The yarn is Crazy Zauberball in the colorway 2170_Blasser Schimmer
The quilt is a kit I found years ago at the Great Amrican Quilt Factory called “Leading Ladies”. Fast, simple, fun. Even with cats who help a little too much.
The book is
The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin. All knitting activities are basically on hold while I finish this book.
