Since my last post I’ve had moderately serious surgery, spent a few days in the hospital, had a visit from my mother, loafed around the house for a week and returned to work. A week at home should have been a great time to work on some unfinished craft projects, but I didn’t accomplish a single thing. all the meds I’m on blur my vision and make pretty much anything but watching television impossible. And when I tired of the Roku (*gasp* it actually happened), the furry monsters were great entertainment.

We took walks around the backyard and marveled at all the awesome weeds and wildflowers that are growing. My mom helped me identify almost all the plants and trees that are already growing and brainstorm about what else we can plant back there.

Poor kitty isn’t allowed outside.

When your dog does somersaults in a big bed of flowers like this: phlox?

he ends up covered in pollen just like this:

We’ve been so busy lately with the house, unpacking & the new kitten that i haven’t had much time for crafting. In fact, I don’t even have a proper chair in the craft room yet. I did manage to whip up a dinosaur hat for my favorite godson in time for Saturday’s backyard party. However, I did not manage to get a photo of it.

In the meantime, perhaps you’d like to take a look at some photos of the new kitten and his BFF, Fwankie.


I won a giveaway from painted fish studio, I’m super psyched to receive a wires t-shirt of my very own. err. husband’s very own.
