Summertime, and the Questions are Easy

Via Kathy, as usual on a June Monday.

*My neighbor's trumpet vine is in bloom. 
What's your preferencee? 
Butterflies or Hummingbirds?
We have gorgeous blue and black butterflies here, so I'll go with them.


*What's your preference?
Boxed water or bottled water?
(I just found this boxed water and I am crazy about it)
I'd never heard of boxed water before.  Progressive Chicago, huh?  Bottled, then, for me.

*For next to your skin softness, 
do you prefer 
angora, cashmere, alpaca, or acyrlic?
Alpaca.  Even though this one seems unhappy with my choice:

*Do you have an interchangeable needle set or do you  prefer the individual circs?
I did break down and buy a set of square interchangeables.  Not for the circleness, but for the shape of the needles.

*Do you prefer an alcoholic drink before, during or after your dinner?  
I don't drink often enough to have an answer!

*What cuts into your knitting time more, 
others in your home or your own wanderings on the internet? 
Oh, Internet.  Easy. 

*Would you rather have a snowstorm as in Blizzard, or a heatwave with violent thunderstorms. 
Snow, snow, snow!!  I've been through enough Southern heatwaves.

*You just won a all expenses paid trip to a Fiber Festival.
Would you go alone or try to bring a knit pal along? 
I'd bring someone along, and plan to meet up with friends there.

Thanks again, Kathy, for the fun questions!

  1. AL's thinking about an interchangeable needle set so that prompted my question.
    I LOVE the warmth of Alpaca, but the fibers get up my nose and I start sneezing

#Chewy Influencer, March

Well, if you're a bit sensitive, you might want to turn away now.

One of my choices to try from Chewy was Fussie Cat dry food:


Since Madeleine is on a restricted diet, only Erin and Riley tried this.  And one, or both, of them developed --- how should I put this --- lower intestinal tract issues.  I don't know which it was (or, again, if it was both) because everyone has free access to every litter box.  Still, things were messy.

I believe this is the first product for the cats that I've had to truly negatively rate.  Sorry, Chewy.


As a Chewy Influencer, I am allowed to choose products to test --- for free --- each month.  There is no financial transaction of any kind.

Chewy Influencer, January, Part One

I have not been following the Chewy.com Influencer blogging rules, and for that I apologize.  I am supposed to post one entry for each product I try.  Here, then, is the first review of 2018.
I must start with a hearty thank you to my FedEx driver.  This was 40 pounds of litter packed along with a case of canned cat food.  That box was very, very, very heavy.
I like this litter.  While it doesn't seem to control odor any better than other litters we have used in this house, it is easier to scoop.  (The "lumps" don't cling to the sides of the litter box.)  It is also helpful that, despite being difficult to move around, the litter comes in a 40 pound bag.  Having three cats, we go through a lot of litter here, and having this much around the house keeps me from having to go buy smaller boxes or bags every few days.
So, thumbs up to Frisco litter.  As part of the Influencer program, I request and receive products to review monthly.  No money is exchanged at all betwee…

Winning Girl

VERA!  You will be getting this week's countdown prize.  If you send me your address, that is.  😄  Send it to handeyecrafts*at*hotmail*dot*com, and your mailbox will soon have a visitor.
You should probably know that Vera's answer was "Napping Girl," which also fits me.  Since socks sort of started this whole thing, I tried to imagine what a pair with each of your answers might look.  
Camille's "Baking Girl" is a girl with oven mitts on pulling cupcakes out of an oven.
Kathy's "Nature Girl," as per her answer, would be a girl with an owl.
Grace's "Sipping Tea Girl" is a girl in a comfy chair by a window, teacup in hand.
Bridget's "Laughing Girl" is a girl with her head thrown back in sheer delight.
Twinnie's "Alpaca Castrating Girl" is. . .
um. . .
well. . .
There's a girl. . .
and, uh . . .

Boy, we all congratulate Vera on her big win, don't we?
