Thanks for all the support and good wishes - things seem to be holding steady on the health front, which is a blessing, I guess!
S and I spent last weekend painting in the new house... and the lovely and talented Elspeth joined us on Sunday to help us correct our disastrous first coats!
Elspeth also proved that there's nothing sexier than a roller-wielding knitter...
Abby, meanwhile, helped supervise.
She had to do a LOT of supervising...
And here's proof that Elspeth and I are not the neatest of painters, and may have gotten just a little bit of paint on us.
And how do you paint around a huge fridge? Why, you crawl behind it and sit on it... duh!
Finally, at the end of a long day of painting, we celebrated with the traditional celebratory meal of donuts (chocolate glazed) and beer.
And even though I have still been knitting, I have been terrible about photographing my progress, so I'm going to employ the time-honored blogger strategy of more cute pets.
This picture may give you a little idea as to why it is sometimes I have a terrible time getting out of bed in the morning...
And finally, I have a confession to make. Cricket has been carrying on a torrid affair with S' spongebob pillow. She has been neglecting everything in her life to spend time with spongebob... her friends, her snuggling, even her "wake maeve up at 4 am" routine. In fact, she is snuggling with spongebob as I type.
We may have to stage an intervention for Cricket soon before she demands that we carry her through the house on her pillow like an Egyptian pharaoh...
