A cheese and wine festival that is!


So many tasty treats! So many cute fluffy dogs! So much wine to taste! This is the first year we’ve gone and it was super packed! With the addition of a $5 credit and a free wine glass with entry fee of $25 (for cheese and wine) what’s not to love? I got Cypress Grove Humbolt Fog and Truffle Tremmor, which were only $5 each. So I used both our credits and didn’t have to shell out any cash.

Afterwards I headed over to my friend Alanna’s for a game night/birthday party. We played Exploding Kittens, Camel Up, Blank Cards (? I think that’s what it’s called), and Concept. The only game I’d played before is, of course, Exploding Kittens. Out of all the games I’d have to say Camel Up was the top dog for the night.

But the one thing that had me at hello was this washer/dryer combo:


Just look at this beauty! It’s a clothing washer…and then dryer!!!!! No switching loads, no dropping socks on the floor, all packaged in a chromed up spaceship pod looking thing! And side loading!!! omg….I bad…WAAANT…!!!!!

Le sigh…

And here’s my progress for Noriko’s Birthday KAL.


And she has also posted the prize skein of yarn on the forum! Super cute! So far I think I’m in the lead for the raffle since no one else has started yet. Granted we have until the end of November…I could probably pump out 2-3 of these guys for Christmas presents this year and win that skein…muahahah….

Yeah…whatever mom…


Have faith in my knitability, Luce-Purr!!! =/

One of Lucy’s favorite things to do is to keep tabs on us. The easiest way is to be between us and or within view of us. Two Christmas’s ago Jonathan bought a cardboard castle for the kitty-poops. It fit directly between our computer stations so she could laze, scratch, and be within paw reach. Being a bush dweller, she enjoyed the relative same span off of the ground as she does with the plastic bins.

Getting rid of the card board castle was difficult for all of us. She loved it! We saved her scratching boards, but it’s just not the same without it.

Recently we have piled a sweater and shoes in the place where it used to be…and she sits there, guarding Jonathan’s shoes and meowing for pettings.

I have since…five minutes ago, devised a new official title for Lucy:



Her Royal Highness Princess Lucifur Hynes. Commander of the Fur-Bot Legion. Slayer of the Teddy-Bear Terror. Conqueror of the Dyno-matic Catnibis Culprit. The Chosen One of Paw-sessive Forearm Fluffy Bites. And Elite Rustler of the Plastic Plateau.
