Mancat Monday

Hello friends,
It's me Genghis.  Welcome to my first Mancat Monday in a long time.

I found this signage out on the internet somewhere - maybe Pinterest- maybe not!!
But I forgot who was responsible for making it, & cannot seem to find it again.
 Since it fit my personality so well, I figured they wouldn't mind me sharing their work.

Can you feel my Awesomeness?????

Not much going on in my neck of the wood.  The last 2 days have been warmer that we've had it a long time - so the snow is melting-  making a mess with puddles all over everyplace.  I'm still stuck in the house because I just hate when my feet get cold and wet.

So Is your favorite Team going to the Super Bowl?  I'm not really into football - but I pretend I am for Sir Knight - every now and then he likes watching a game or two on the TV.  I sit on his lap and watch too.
Last night was one of those times - I just couldn't tell if he was happy or sad when each of the two games ended.   Me,  I was sad - those poor men had to run around in the rain like they did - and wondered why they just couldn't wait till the weather was better.  In fact - isn't there some kind of sayings Humans have about " not having enough sense to come in out of the rain."     Maybe they never will and that is very frightening for all of us cats with superior intellect.

I best go check out what everybody is doing - Yep Sir Knight is Home from work - since it's a Holiday -
Celebrating the memory of Dr Martin Luther King Jr.  of course I'm to young to know him - but not too young to know of Him.  (I read a lot.)   So I leave you with one of my favorite quotes  by him

Have an Awesome Day.

Hopefully. I have returned.

Hello everyone,

It feels so good to be back sitting down to blog again.

Hopefully Genghis and I will be able to continue on for some time - but right now we are not making any promises.   We will make a real effort to blog twice a week - one day for Genghis and one day for me; and see how that goes before we try to expand.  So please bear with us.

While Sir Knight was sick, I spent many days in Hospital waiting rooms at first just sitting around wringing my hands and twiddling my thumbs.  When it became evident that this was to be my new normal activity I decided I needed to be more constructive with my sitting around waiting time.  So I began crocheting "potato chip" scarves.   I never would have imagined when I started a year ago Christmas that I would make as many scarves as I did.   When Sir Knight took the tub I had been filling into work for Saint Nicholas Day to distribute to the girls he works with I was surprised that I had 25 done and ready to go.

Don't they look pretty?  These are only a sample of the colors.

Since money was real tight with all the hospital & doctor bills - I was thrilled when a friend of my college roommate offered me bags of unused yarn from her mothers estate.  Thank you so much Karen; you'll never know how much it helped. 

When Sir Knights Surgery was over and he was well enough to come home - I was once again able to putter in my craft room while he slept instead of always crocheting;  so I  painted up a few Styrofoam pieces I had on hand - - - gathered up a few other supplies. . .

Painted Foam
Ruffling Yarn & Pearl Cotton
 and made this cute little charmer for my bedroom.  I liked it so well and I had enough yarn to make two smaller ones as well -  but alas, I failed to take a picture of the entire ensemble.

Pretty cute  huh!

Sir Knight wanted to do something to help so we worked on this next little project together.  
It was a gift to our oldest Grandson and His girlfriend.  I thought it came out beautiful.  Now I want to make one for our own Christmas decorations.  I just can't decide if I want it in gold like this one or in silver. Thank goodness for such trivial decisions

Understated Beauty

Well It's time for me to get busy on my chores; so I best finish this post up here.

Happy New Year !

Hey evfurry one,

I'm getting kind of sleepy so I think the New Year will just  have to usher itself in without me.
I couldn't head off to bed without wishing all our friends a very Happy & Prosperous New Year.

"Never a Christmas morning, never an old year ends,\ 
but someone thinks of someone:
old days, old times old friends."

Thinking fondly of each and everyone of you.
We may have been off the blog but you all were always on our minds and in our hearts.

From our house  - to your house.
Brightest blessings for Peace, Prosperity, 
Good Heath, Love and Friendship in the coming year.
