My life of knitting, running, family, two labrador retrievers and a trifecta of cats.

Cecil is still at the vet. His one day visit has turned into a two day (over-nighter) visit. Today I'm praying to Sterquilinus - the Roman God of Poop in the hopes Cecil managed to do a poop all on his own over night so he can come home today.
It seems to be a trend for me. Start out the year full force with blogging and then forget. I really didn't forget. There'd be days where I'd want to blog, but after working and mothering and all that fun stuff I just didn't have time. Also Ethan's tablet broke so he has more than taken over my laptop (I'm using it now because he is pre-occupied elsewhere). Soon I will have a new laptop and he will be the proud owner of this one, but for now we "share" which means he mostly uses it.
In five days Michael will be off night shift and I'm more than thrilled. Life will HOPEFULLY get back to normal. Night shift is tough on the worker, yes, but it's also tough on the worker's family, especially since our weekends are staggered. He gets Saturday and Sunday off and I (mostly) get Sunday and Monday, though the odd week I have to work on a Monday.
I have been crafting again. Not knitting, but crocheting, so while very different it's close enough of a cousin to keep my fingers happy. I'm making a few baby blankets for my stash. My mom has already claimed this one for a neighbour who is having a baby girl. It's very difficult to see in this photo because Cecil is doing his very best to keep it safe.
Here's a better shot of it. As of right now it's almost finished (this pic was taken a few days ago).
Ruby and Cecil have become great pals. They play together, they snuggle, they conspire and ... well ... like any decent big sister, she smushes him from time to time ... Don't worry though, he likes it.
Dozer and Ezra have been spending a lot of time snuggling lately. She likes him because he's happy to lay there for as long as she is. They're an ideal napping set.
But don't worry, Ruby and Cecil aren't the only kitties who get along well. Here's the trifecta enjoying a siesta on the dogs…
