Spring is here. Definitely and without question.
How do I know? Lizzie, my cat has decided that 5:00 am is the time to rise and shine. And she is persistent. For a 5-lb. cat, she sure does shake the bed when she lands. And then she paces back and forth across the sleeping mom. Next she goes to the bedroom door and scratches frantically in an effort to turn the handle. Never mind that the handle is 3 inches higher than her little paws.
So Saturday morning she was scooped up, carried downstairs and unceremoniously dumped into the "time out" box -- something most people know as a cat carrier. She was not impressed.
At 7:00 am, Henry decided it was high time for us to get up. So he started with the scratching at the door. He also was caught and dropped into another time-out box.
And what happened on Sunday? Blessed peace and quiet. No frantic scratching. No meows. No pacing back and forth. Whew.
In knitting news -- I have started knitting a pair of socks made with Reggia Cotton. So far I am loving the yarn. The colors are summery and nice and they are making a lovely fair-isle type pattern. Pictures (hopefully) tomorrow.
Right now, I am growling and grumpy because we have a dial-up connection. No options for high-speed. And the dial-up is painfully s-l-o-w.
