While I have no knitting to post for today I do have this!

Question: When is a lump in the bed NOT a lump in the bed???

When it is your cat that is TERRIFIED of the LITTLE puppy you are babysitting!! Gracie kitty was so traumatized when little Jesse arrived she immediately dove under the covers and stayed there for about 7 hours, when she DID come out it was to run for the door....upon letting her on the porch she immediately dove THROUGH the screened door, litererally THROUGH the screened door and we haven't seen her since!!! Still not back this morning!!

Max is NOT happy that Jesse is here!! He will tolerate the little one as long as he is sitting quietly....yea right....this little powerhouse is a bundle of puppy energy just waiting for a place to explode!! LOL!!! In otherwords a typical little puppy and one grumpy old dog!! No blood shed yet and we plan to keep it that way!! I guess this answers our question of whether or not Max would accept another dog in the family.....unless perhaps it is a grumpy old dog like Max so they could lay around and complain together about the cat and all the "youngster" pups in the neighborhood!!

Also, my dear friend from Wetumpka came up this weekend for a visit...we try to get together at least once a quarter for an "all girll weekend"....we stay up all night talking, spend the day shopping...although it is getting harder and harder to stay up till the wee hours of the morning then get up and have a full day of shopping....not as young as we used to be!! LOL!! STILL haven't talked her into learning to knit.....despite the fact that she wanted me to make her some "warshrags"!! LOL!!! We are planning a trip to Greenville when I go to her house for our next weekend get together....the result of a small article in Southern Living magazine.

Still working on some "warshrags"......working on another mini sock but I am stuck so I'll have to go back to KN for a "sock intervention"......but I am getting there!!! Almost......Ha! Ha!

What a cute pup! Hang in there, if I can knit socks, anybody can. Though I don't use dpns...

Cute puppy! I haven't done much knitting this weekend either.

I do hope your kitty comes back! She must have been truly terrified. The puppy is cute! Poor Max must have been worried ;o)

Oh! and you'll get those socks - I'm sure! If I can conquer a gusset (most of the time) I know you can :o)

I found the gussets harder than the heel flap - but I could be doing my slip stitches on the side of the flap wrong too.

Poor Gracie, she may never show up again. She is so strange! Max shouldn't be so grumpy. After all, he is usually the only dog on the premises. He need to remember where his good food and home comes from! ;-)

The puppy is 100% adorable, but poor kitty and Max! Glad the girls weekend was wonderful!

It took me over 25 years to master socks. I did take some time off knitting. You'll figure it out. Thanks for visiting my blog. You're right, we should all get together. Now, that would be an event to remember.

Hope Gracie comes home soon and maybe she will tolerate that cute puppie. What a fun weekend with your friend too.
