I Know I’ve Been Quiet

I haven’t knit since Thursday last week. Well, I’ve been knitting a rat rug, but only a few rows a day. Knitting has been on hold because I’m just not feeling it most days right now.

I was sick from heat exhaustion Saturday night after our errands that afternoon. Sunday was mostly recovering from that. And of course, Sunday began all the excitement about the new rat babies coming to us.

Monday Gryphon and I had some personal business emergencies to deal with. Tuesday, a doctor’s appointment (everything is going well). It’s been one thing after another taking our attention away from having just normal, routine days at home.

Tonight, I pick up the new girls, Lily and Laurel. Lola is all excited – she sees the other cage set up near theirs, and keeps peeking to see if anyone is in it. Yuri and Leo, well…they’re boys. They’re sleeping, and showing no particular interest at all. I’ll bet anything that will change as soon as the scent of two new girls hits their noses later.

It seems like almost everyone I know is having a similar slump period – depression, unsuccessful job searches, financial woes, health issues. I don’t know what’s going on in the cosmos to bring such a trend around. Here’s hoping it passes quickly!

And of course, I promise…baby Rattie pictures will be posted as soon as it’s at all practical!

Normal, routine, days? What are those?

Welcome to the new family members!

Yeah, slump is right. I had to give one of my clients the boot for non payment. Which means my bank account is rather anemic. Just as well I have jeans to cut up to make yarn out of. Couldn’t afford yarn right now anyway!

There WILL be new Rattie pics, right? It’s going to be a high spot in my day, you wouldn’t deprive me, would you?

Congrats on the new kiddos. The heat has been a stinker here too. It makes me feel dizzy. Yuck.
