The wrapping of presents has begun here.  I like to wrap a few each day, rather than all of them at once.  That way, every day someone has something new to look at and wonder about.

New today, since it's Monday, the latest of Kathy's Questions:
  1. Have you ever knit a Christmas Ornament?  Yes.  Ornaments, stockings, garlands --- all.
  2. Have you ever knit with sparkle yarn?  I have.  It's fun to watch.
  3. Did you buy yarn while traveling this year?  I haven't traveled.  But I've bought yarn from stores/shops in other states.  Do I get partial credit?  (I always hated for students to ask me that.  I graded your paper, and what you've got is what you've got.)
  4. When’s the last time you wore something you knit?  Last Wednesday.  I wore a cowl to my therapy session.
  5. Do you remember your dreams?  Vividly!  I can recall them in detail throughout the day.
  6. What’s the one thing you don’t want to run out of?  It may not be "the" one thing, but it's certainly "a" thing: Dr Pepper!
  7. Deep dish or thin pizza?  Thin, thin, thin.  That's one thing on which my husband and I never found a compromise.
  8. Name a favorite holiday music cd, or album for us oldies?  Aaron Neville's "Soulful Christmas."  It's the only Christmas music I can listen to year-round.
  9. How do you remind yourself a candle has been lit?  Nothing as clever as what Kathy does.  I just sort of speak to myself periodically while it's burning.
  10. What’s the ringtone on your phone?  A pre-programmed "beep beep."  There  are different ones for Briton and Hannah, but they're also pre-programmed.


  1. Thanks for playing again Kim!!! Thin too! thick actually makes me ill afterwards..too much cheese.
    I too have been wrapping each day. I like it much better that way! I will find Soulful Christmas

#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 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?
