I am moving (in) slowly

Johnny stands watchMoving is progressing slowly after an adverse reaction to all the chemicals in my freshly cleaned, painted and carpeted apartment knocked me flat and now have me moving slowly.

The cats have returned from kitty summer camp at my friend's house and are part of the unpacking crew. Johnny regularly stands guard at the doors and windows to warn of birds and squirrels that may be coming too close–I've also seen deer in the neighborhood, but I don't think he has . . . yet.

Grace helps make the bed
Grace has been more actively helping with the move in process. She immediately fell back into her habit of helping make the bed and stepped up to help organize inside the closets . . . and even took it upon herself when I was unpacking books to suggest which shelves I should fill next.

If you're curious, the black and white quilt on the bed is a sampler made from the blocks from the first year of the Block Lotto in  2002.  All the 12-inch blocks were made from patterns on Marcia Hohn's Quilter's Cache web site.  You can see the complete list of those 2002 lotto blocks (with links to the patterns) on the 2002 Block Index page. Did you notice that Grace likes basket blocks, too ;-)

I took a break yesterday evening to learn something new. I'll blog about it more later . . . but for now, I'll share that there was produce involved.

Smart PotatoesWe never figured out what made those Smart Baking Potatoes so smart, but they seemed to work just fine in spite of it.

Below is a photo of a carrot in action.

Kitty summer camp, I like that one.

I'm glad you are settling in. I see you have the same taste in cats that I have. I've always had calico cats since the first one I picked out of a neighbor's litter. I've had two sets of calico/brown tabby sister cats in the past 35 years. My calicos have always been a bit crazier than their more calm tabby sisters. How about yours? Kathie L in Allentown

The cats look happy, the thing with the wax and the root vegetables looks fun (messy, but fun) and I am very glad to hear that you're feeling better!

Looks like the cats are enjoying their new digs:)

Moving is such a drag; hopefully, this is It for awhile.
