Kitty Sitting

 I know just how you feel kitty. Mom and Dad went away for the weekend and left you with the crazy lady again.

Spending time at Daughter's is like living in a cat crazy fever dream.

Her house is one big playroom for her cats.

 It did give me a chance to meet the new kittens. They are not kittens anymore but are still very playful. They look so much alike I have no idea which is which. They are all just Kitty to me.

 The senior member of the house was very chill this weekend which is odd. She usually drives me nuts begging for food and screaming all night. I'm not complaining. It was actually a pleasure. They were all very good.

 So good that I had plenty of me time in front of the big sunny windows.

Knitting and stitching is so much easier in good natural daylight. I got all of the February sheep done and it's not even February. I'll show you my knitting progress tomorrow.

And....while I was there the baby from the crazy baby shower we threw in December decided to show up. He's a big healthy boy and Mom couldn't be more happy and relieved-as are we.

And....the ice dance team Daughter went to cheer on, McNamara and Carpenter, came in 4th at Nationals! Not bad for their first time in senior competition.

And...a little girl we know who used to skate at our rink came in 5th in Ladies! It was her first time at the senior level also. It's amazing to see how these little kids have all come so far. It takes so much work and dedication.
If it had not snowed in Detroit causing Daughter to have to sit on the runway forever for de-icing before she could fly home it would have a been a perfect weekend.
You can't have everything.


  1. That first photo gave me quite a chuckle. What a FACE!!!! LOL

    Glad you had a good weekend kitty-sitting.

  2. Looks like a good weekend for kitty or people!

  3. Those kitties are so sweet. how many does she have???? Love the cat pillow too.

  4. I agree, big window make all the difference in stitching, even though it is rather cold to sit near them. Your sheep... adorable!

  5. Really happy you had some time to relax over the weekend! And the gracefulness of the skaters - so much beauty!

  6. "Me time" and playing with kitties - a perfect weekend. Glad the skaters did so well.

  7. Daughters place looks like my idea of heaven!
    Glad you got lots of time for yourself!

  8. Oh my goodness! That face in the first picture. I laughed out loud! It looks like it was a wonderful weekend for everybody. That window at your daughters home looks like the perfect place to sit and knit and stitch.
    And congratulations to all the winners and the new baby boy. What a wonderful post. Blessings, Betsy

  9. What beautiful cats/kittens! Even the cat pillow. Have you noticed that in the first photo, the cat has a white heart shape on his face (side whiskers, mouth and chin)? Just adorable! How exciting that "your" skaters did so well. My granddaughter has been skating for about ten years so I know some of what is involved in competitions. To me, they are all impressive though.

  10. Ice skaters amaze me! They make it look so easy while I can barely let go of the railing. The cats are adorable! Glad you had a good weekend hanging out with them.

  11. Oh kitty grandma. So glad they live where you can stitch easily!!! THe ice skating news and photos are wonderful!

  12. It's so nice of you to cat-sit! And such pretty babies you have there.
    I love natural light. Can't' wait for some longer days!

  13. Sounds like a fun weekend! Love that stitching of yours.
