A Very Merry Unbirthday...

... to Maggie!! Today is her Unbirthday, it was two years ago today that we got the little puff-of-fluff that would soon outgrow her puff-of-fluffiness and turn into what would become my Evil Baby. (Although I have to admit that she is not as evil as she used to be.) Her real birthday is August 24, but we use the day we got her since we don`t know Jewel`s or Pumba`s real birthdays, so we just use the day we got them. I do know Nala`s birthday cuz I got her and Simba from a friend who told me the day his cat had her kittens.
Today also happens to be my brother`s birthday. I called him a few minutes ago, but one of our aunts was there, so I will call him later on today once the kids get home from school.
It has been raining here since Thursday night. I am very thankful that our basement doesn`t leak, some people are in quite a mess. I worked last Friday morning and am off til this Friday. I had hoped to get out and finish raking up the leaves, there are a ton of them to be done, all from the graveyard across the street, of course. Fall yard waste pick up is Thursday, and the forecast is rainy right up til Thursday. I have a friend who took the 16 bags or so I had done up already plus my Halloween bags to put on his garden, so maybe he`ll come back and get the rest of them. This is really the only time I miss not having a truck, I can`t haul away my yard waste to the compost yard. But I think in the spring I`ll get a little trailer to tow with the car.

There has been knitting going on. I have to do the second sole on one of the men slippers today and make one more ladies pair, then the six pair felted slipper order will be finished. Well, I will have three pairs to felt, then it will be finished. I desparately need to make myself a pair. Not only are the backs out of mine now, but they are giving away at the toes as well. Here are four pairs I did finish up so far. The fourth pair is not part of the order, and yes, there were two pairs alike but in different sizes. I am too lazy to link each pair, but you can check out the colorways, start and finish times, etc, on my Ravelry projects page. They were all knit with Patons Classic Wool, and the pattern is Fiber Trends Felted Clogs, of course.
Happy knitting!

I'm still counting on time to mellow him.
