Monday Again


*Do you work better in groups or alone?
Alone.  I tried to never assign group work when I was teaching, knowing how much I hated it. 

*Butter or margarine?
Butter.  Why did anyone ever come up with margarine anyway?

*For a day : no phone or no computer?
Phone.  Easy.

*Gym shoes: wear them out or replace regularly?
I replace them, though not regularly.  I haven't truly worn out a pair since playing tennis in college.

*More likely to find in your couch cushions: money or needles?
Needles.  The finding money trope never, ever came true for me.

*What kind of knitting hurts your hands/arms/fingers?
None, really.

*How do you feel when someone asks you to knit for them?
-delighted?
-burdened?
It depends on who's asking, and what they want.  I like to have people choose their own yarn, and most don't get to that once they've asked.

*I choose my patterns based on : 
-the designer
-the difficulty
-ability to use stash on hand
The design.  I don't know from designers, and I'll tackle something difficult if it's pretty.

*I store my yarn in :
-plastic bags
-project bags
-bins and pots and pans
Cardboard boxes.

*Last company you called customer service .....
SunTrust.

#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?
