neighborhood cats

Out and about this Easter Sunday I happened upon a neighborhood cat in the Alphabet District. Little guy was not interested in people, but rather on munching the green-way greens.

I got a few shots of him partaking of his daily green. I’m pretty sure he knew what he was doing. The area is not exactly pet friendly in that there is a lot of car traffic along NW 23rd. Cat seemed pretty content to saunter up to the patches of grass and take himself a few mouth-fulls.

Knitting progress…? Ok so it’s coming down to the wire here. March is almost done so I have to hurry up on the crown decreases of my Beeswax hat so I can start April’s KAL project. Additionally I need to get crackin’ on a hat for my cousin’s wife. ALSO I need to finish up my Campside shawl for my other cousin’s wedding next next weekend which I will be presenting to her and my other FO I need to make as well as give my Poe shawl to my mother’s cousin. Eek!

Here’s an update as well on how the hair is holding up!

Looking pretty awesome to me. The perm is still there so it’s slightly wavy. I still haven’t gotten used to the fact that my hair is this awesome color. XD I got a lot of compliments over the weekend though! Every time I look in the mirror, a window reflection, etc…surprise!!! PURPLE HAIR!!!

It’s been a pretty epic week and a half here. Definitely the longest I’ve ever celebrated anything. Thanks for the love everyone! <3

I shouldn’t be surprised by this, but I live in a very cat-dense neighborhood. An 11 block walk will yield at least 5 cat sightings. ┬áLuckily, Lucy is afraid of the outside. Her curiosity of course doesn’t impede her desire to rush out the front door. Cat-knapping is a thing in this town. Hipster mentality? We have 1 cat. I wouldn’t mind another, but I’m not going to steal one off the streets because I feel like I’d be a better cat owner than the cat’s actual owner.

1 fuzz-bucket and 1 husband is enough hair and fur for me for now.
