Laying up with Mr Wheezey

I stayed home today in an effort to convince my giant foot that there is no reason to be growing a lemon for an ankle. I have some kind of ridiculous staph infection that is making it damn near impossible to walk... Not being able to walk makes everything else much harder. I can certainly understand why people like single level homes. The weirdest thing about this is I have had the same thing happen in the other foot. Who gets two of these kind of strange infections?
In other news, Mr Wheezey (the kitten formerly known as "Tiny Kitten") is still living in our basement bathroom. Are you people advertising this kitten to friends or what? No comments at all on a post with a picture of a tiny kitten! Heartless fiends! The lot of you! Pretty soon Mr Wheezey is going to need a committee to help find it a home- please spread the word.
Just to make sure you understand the need of Mr Wheezey for a new home I will place pictures of him again as soon as I hobble all the way down there to take pictures and back up to the second floor.

Anybody need a Tiny Kitten?


Someone brought us this Tiny Kitten this morning thinking it might be Sydney... It isn't. It is a very Cute Tiny Kitten despite the scummy appearance. I would be willing to wash it for you if you want it.

Any takers?

Hiding and Twittering

Have you noticed the squirrels? Everyday on my walk to and from work for the last week or more there have been squirrels rushing and digging and hiding. They are so busy with the preparations they are making that they hardly even skitter away when I come by. Just keep digging and rushing. Because things are changing you know. The night coming earlier and a little chill in the air gives us the reminder that we should be thinking of sweet potatoes and pumpkins.
Also warning us is the constant twittering. The crickets are playing non-stop, chirp, chirp, chirp. I am not sure what they are saying, maybe just staying warm with the constant motion. And the birds are talking! About migrations and weather and stupid humans, no doubt.
So that is what I have noticed. Change is coming.

Things seem to be moving at the super fast rate instead of the normal one. I feel like I can't keep up. I have been feeling a little wonky anyway and then add on top the fast forward feeling...
I finished the crochet part of my hat project and just have to throw it in for felting... I am nervous to do the felting part but I think this weekend I will just get over and try it.
This weekend I also have a crochet class in Hamden where I should learn to make little creatures out of yarn. How cool is this whole crochet thing? Next I will make a car.
In other, very sad news, I believe we have lost our cat Sydney. We have put up fliers and made a report with the SPCA but I think he slipped out with us on Friday and we were gone all weekend. I just don't see him coming home if he hasn't already... Sebastien is sooo sad. He cries and cries and cries. I don't know what to do.
