So after all that baking some relaxing was called for, which meant I had to finish up the block I had started. I actually have two blocks to show, one was done and the other I just finished today. I can't believe how fast this has gone and I only have 3 more blocks to embroider.
I love the block I just finished with the "Beware of Cat". The cat in this picture and the sign make me think back to our first cat together - Charlotte. Char was born under our deck to a feral mother and was actually discovered with her 3 brothers by our dog Scruffy. Scruf could hear something under the deck and Cliff couldn't, but he knew something was going on by her curiosity. Scruf wasn't a fan of cats (she loved to chase them out of her yard), but she was super gentle with the babies and momma cat. Long story short, the Momma wasn't well, and she moved the kittens and then came to get Cliff one day for help. We got the kittens and found homes for the 3 boys and kept Charlotte. Sadly Momma cat was killed in the street. Charlotte was a hissy girl, she was always a bit on the cranky side and yet she was a love too. She just needed to live life on her own terms and we respected that. So she was a bit grumpy, yet when she purred, you could hear her down the block her purr was so loud.
|Charlotte - she had the most amazing green eyes.|
|Her name was Sruffy, but we called her Lovey. She was so smart and so sweet.|
I always say she made a better human being out of me.
Did I mention that my knee has finally responded to the synthetic "rooster comb" shot and feels really good, no pain when I walk, etc. I'm so happy that one problem is solved and I won't need knee replacement anytime soon.
I can't believe how quickly this year is going by - it's almost Valentines day. So tell me, do you do anything special for Valentines day?? And if so, what plans do you have. CR and I will be at another doctors appointment on that day, so we are going to have the best Reuben sandwiches at a favorite little joint in Spokane called the Picabo Bistro. I have a present for him if the UPS would just deliver it on time, ugh. Some years we don't do much of anything and some years I'll get an idea and go with it. What makes it difficult is his birthday is the 19th. So 2 occasions right after Christmas can be a challenge. Oh and to add to that challenge, our anniversary is March 19th. At that point dinner out and a card is about as good as we can do!
Happy Valentines day; Happy Stitches and Hugs,
