Chow Time!

It's September, and a new chance to try some Chewy.com products!

First up, 
Natural Balance Cat Food.  This is a pate', and my cats are accustomed to eating shreds or bits, so it took them a minute to figure out what was going on.  But then, as Lily's blurry head attests, they dug into it:
I've since mixed the Natural Balance with their regular food, and both Lily and Erin clean their plates.

Next was Nulo dry cat food:
(Yes, I did ask for the Adult Trim, but don't let the cats know.  They're very sensitive about their looks.)  Once again:
a hit the first time out of the bag.  Erin (the gray) sort of nudged Riley (the black) out of the way to perform a taste test.  Since that first feeding, I have to say that Erin and Lily have turned rather cold toward this food.  But, guess who stepped in in their places?
Yep, Rupert.  Finn sort of "taught" him to eat the cats' dry food.  Sorry about the blurriness, but he was chewing as I snapped the photo.  He has a very odd way of eating dry food;  he drops pieces on the floor (those "spots" on the right), then picks them up and eats them from there.  To each his own!

So, cat-wise, the Natural Balance and the Nulo both get a "B."  Dog-wise, an "A" for the Nulo!

Each month, I request and receive samples from Chewy.com to test.  My reviews are honest accounts of our experiences.  No monetary, or any type of, remuneration takes place.

  1. Chewy is always fun mail for us . Sometimes the cats just run to the new food and in a day....meh...they want the old back. I have begun to order litter from Chewy on a regular basis so I dont have to drag it from the pet shop. Glad to see the grades

Cold Shoulders

There were 589 stitches!  They were the beginning of this: It's the Superior Waves Shawl from Willow Yarns.  This is one of the kits Kathy was asking about the other day.
Speaking of which, here are this week's questions: Sure sign of Springs: bugs.  Has anything bitten you yet? No, though the carpenter bees are back flying around the bench on the front porch. Do you knit for practice?  I don't mean for gauge;  for a stitch pattern? If I have, I don't remember. Have you tried One Touch Latte for your coffee? Not a coffee drinker. Have you seen or tried Persi laundry detergent? I'd never heard of it 'til now. When was the last time you wore one of your own handknits? Over the weekend --- some socks made from Noro.
If the waves shawl weren't keeping me busy enough, I'm also working on 28's Cousin 53.  I'm making it out of yarn that will turn purple when I wear it in the sun. What will they think of next?

Hmmm?

Yesterday would have been my mother's 88th birthday.  I don't say that looking for sympathy --- it's just that the arithmetic surprised me.  Then I realized that next year, my husband would have been 70.  That is hard to get my mind around.
The shades-of-blue feather and fan shawl (the 589-stitcher) had to go into the "Maybe Another Day" file.  Somewhere along the way, I lost the pattern stitch and couldn't fix it without frogging way, way back.  It's irritated me to no end, but there really wasn't anything else to do.
Something occurred to me the other day.  If this is already being done, I didn't know, so I'm not trying to steal anyone's thunder.  You know those cake/cocoa/cookie mixes in a jar? Why couldn't that be done with yarn "cakes"?  


Insomnia

I have been awake since 10 AM yesterday.  I have no idea why.  It resulted in lots, lots of knitting getting done overnight.  It has also resulted in my being alternately punchy and goofy.  What a day to have a therapy appointment.  At least I had the good sense to wear pretty boots:
There is all kinds of nervous conversation here about some possible snowflakes falling Friday or Saturday.  I have to go to the grocery store tomorrow anyway;  as long as there are a couple of gallons of milk in stock, things will be good here.
