We painstakingly made about 3 dozen eggs this weekend. Some tie-dyed, some solid, some half-and-half. Dan then turned about half of then into deviled eggs... unfortunately, we didn't have any plastic wrap, so they kind of dried out in the fridge. Sorry, honey! Next time we'll make a grocery store run BEFORE we start cooking.


In Pursuit of a Good Facebook Picture

Everybody who sees my Facebook profile must think I'm a seal point Siamese cat who somehow managed to get into college. I had to improvise, though... I don't have a single stinking picture of myself in the last 2 years. The most recent one is from senior year of college (2004--eep!) and it's part of the drunken horseback riding series. Okay, so we weren't intoxicated, but we were super giggly and being really goofy at the time, so we might as well have been. Anyhow, no head shot to speak of unless you want one end or the other of a horse in it with my eyes peeking over the top. :)

Until tonight! I thought I'd put Dan boy to work and make him take a cute picture. So I put the new kitten on my head:
At which time cutie-patootie little Mountain Meezer sinks his tiny needle claws into my brain. He then peers down over my forehead at me with this look like, "Mama, you didn't need that anyhow... geesh."

So we attempt to detach kitten from the brain tissue, re-pose him, and end up with this:

Much better! And no more holes in my head.

In craftier news, still plugging away on the leg of my Dublin Bay sock #1. It's a neat pattern. Lacey, but not too frou-frou. I think it'll be nice when it's done. Perhaps another pair in a solid color will magically appear, too.


Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers

Baby announcement:
Buby yet-to-be-named. Only part Meezer, but seal point like his big brother.

With Ben's arm for scale :)

The good news is that they get along great and Ben's already teaching him life skills, like how to scratch the cardboard hunk (Alpine Cat Scratcher) instead of mommy's furniture, business suits, and drapes! SCORE. Gooooood kitty.

Name suggestions? We still don't have one for this little fella. And I hate to keep calling him "it" for much longer.

This brings me to other (still non-crafty) news: new kitty-kins is Dan's reward for getting his first full-time job out of grad school! Yes, that's right. The boy is gainfully employed at a local design company, meaning we don't need a second car and I get to keep my itty bitty car all to myself. Yippee! (Hey, I'll share anything but my car. Long story involving kid brother, keg stains, and wet dog smell one summer night... So now I don't share ma belle voiture anymore.)

Hopefully some craftiness in a week or so. Working on Dublin Bay socks right now!
