Turn, Turn

There's a hint of a chill in the air, and a certain crisp scent on the breeze that heralds the end of summer.   And if that weren't enough of a clue:

Lap season has clearly started.  (The lovely quilt atop the husband and underneath the cat is my mother's handiwork.  Cookie *looooves* the quilt.)

This week, I've knit some socks, some hat, some sweater, and some mitten, but I don't have any FOs to show off.   I blame the cold- I picked up a low grade infection Monday that is a picayune measly little thing as viruses go- but yet enough to make me want sleep, sleep and more sleep, and to be a nagging irritant when I'm awake. 

I'm planning to kick its little viral butt this weekend, always supposing my fuzzy housemates let me sleep it off.    Biscuit, however, has added a new trick to his repertoire of 'ways to get Mom up when she's lying there being boring'.  Yep.  It turns out to be really hard to sleep when a fluffy cat is patting you with his paw in your armpit.   Wish me luck!


  1. It's lap season around here - though mine prefer knit afghans (they won't turn down a nice quilt though)

    I hope you're feeling better soon. It's amazing how creative a determined kitty can be. Tux is especially devious - he knows that I'm pretty good at ignoring him, so he's started to go after Dave. Not that Dave will get up and feed them... but he knows that I will, just to shut Dave up...

  2. Good luck kicking that virus!! The "sleeping between mom's legs" season has started here, too, which is funny because it's VERY warm during the day. But I guess it cools off enough at night that Gwilim needs some extra heat...

  3. The two out-door venturing cats have been staying in more. Sleeping on the bed with me. Not quite lap cats, mine. For animals that spend most of their lives sleeping, you'd think they'd understand your need to be "boring". Hope you're all better!

  4. Silly cat. Made me giggle. Wish I could bring you some chicken soup.
