My mom is getting remarried this weekend and her sister, who lives in balmy Florida, is flying in as a surprise (no worries mum knows zip about in the internet). My Aunt A and cousin Chazz will be staying with us, but once my brother gets into town, there may be some shuffling of houseguests. I am a bit worried that Aunt A and Chazz may freeze to death in this weather.
So, much of my crafting time has been redirected toward “Operation Houseguests.” Funny how having houseguests can motivate you to get those things done that have been projects that are long over due. We are painting our guest bathroom”Navajo Red” but the primer was a wee bit brighter than the actual Navajo Red paint. The primer was supposed to allow us to finish the job in one coat of primer and two coats of paint… but it looks like we need a third. ARGH!
Little Miss Mercy has been displaced due to this project. The bathroom is generally where we keep her corralled during the day. It’s quite large and she stays nice and warm in there. It’s quiet, so she isn’t disturbed by blowing winds or the mailman, which could cause an anxious barking frenzy. Now her space has been invaded by drop cloths and smelly paint.
We don’t quite trust her to be “free range” in the house, mostly because we think she might jump up on the couch and hurt herself coming down. As I left for work, I asked my dear hubby to set Mercy up somewhere and I came home Monday to find Mercy here:
In our bedroom, in her crate, but with this little hut of pillows on the bed. I guess that is where she was in the morning when hubby left for work! Nice and warm.
I supppose it’s a good thing I have been busy at home, as I have run out of yarn for my socks and am anxiously awaiting more in the mail.
I’m afraid this little ball of yarn won’t do the trick to finish the calf. Not to worry, I have plenty of items in queue to work on once my family arrives and the feverish housework comes to a screeching halt. Then they will make fun of me for being an old knitting lady at the age of 24. Ha! The muggles.
