Okay, don't despair - I promise this won't become The Crazy Cat Lady Blog, but c'mon folks, when you have a bathroom populated by kittens, something's gotta give. Look at this ding-dang face:

Yeah, that's Nuts. I discovered today that if you even just talk to him in a high squeaky kitten-wooing voice, he will start purring. I couldn't get a good picture of Caroline, since she is still skittish.

Cue heavenly choir of angels!!! Look at what arrived in the mail yesterday!!!!

O Happy Day. Yes, a whole mighty tower of Georgette Heyer books! Since I had gone through all the local libraries' stock, I finally went to Amazon and bought 7 - count 'em - SEVEN GH books! They're all used, and the whole lot only cost like 10 bucks. But now they are so precious to me, I can't bring myself to read them! I have two trips coming up this summer, so I'll save one each for those. But should I just jump into the rest in one big orgy of Regency romance? Or should I carefully parcel them out for times when I need extra soothing mindless happiness?

Phillies Update: I haven't mentioned this in a while, but I went down to the stadium on Monday to help stuff the giveaway bags for the Stitch N Pitch Night on June 26. The Phillies so far have sold 1200 tickets to stitchers - I believe this is by far the best showing by any ball club on their first SnP. They had to open up an additional section to fit all the crazy knitters in. Now admittedly Philadelphia's a big city, and there are a lot of knitters around, but the Phillies really stepped up to the plate [HA HA] on this. The coordinator from the National Needle Arts Association said some ball clubs are very dismissive, even though there is a proven track record of success.

So here's to you, Philadelphia Phillies Baseball Club. This sorta kinda offsets the whole Freddy Garcia thing. A little.

Matthew must be so happy that, in addition to the daily box delivery from Dad, you are getting old books delivered by mail too!

Omg I love it when you find an author you absolutely love. Pride & Prejudice along with Wuthering Heights made me love ms. Austen & Bronte, but I've discovered Gabriel Garcia Marquez's style recently. I'm reading Love in the Time of Cholera: a guy waits like 50something years to be with this girl he loved. I love him already.

I think I'm gonna hold off on the second cap shawl. I haven't worked on it since thursday morning and it was only a day, but I lost momentum. Plus I started the peacock feathers shawl and I still have the three-cornered shawl on the side, my tudor lace shawl, and the forest path that sits all alone. I'm not even gonna bring up spinning. Luckily I only have one project on the wheel.

JJP - I had a long talk with Zelphia about Georgette Heyer at the store yesterday. She fed my madness!! Matthew's favorite book of all time is "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by G. G. Marquez.

I'm relieved that you are putting aside the 2nd Cap Shawl for now. I was starting to get panicky.
