A great weekend & my sock kit answers

I had a great weekend in Jax with my folks. I spent Saturday out with my Mom. She just found the most adorable kitten in her yard on Saturday morning. He was so tiny and helpless and adorable. It took all my restraint to say no when she asked me if I wanted to keep him. Max just wouldn't want to share!!

Yesterday was spent on the boat with my dad, stepmom, my sister & two of her friends. It was a great day of touring the city, too much beer, fried food & BAD "funk" music at Whitey's fishcamp and a ton of merriment in the rain on the way home.

All in all a perfect trip home!

That is a GREAT quote! Glad you had such a fun weekend with your family.
Sounds like a great weekend!

I dreamt a kitten *broke into* my apartment because it wanted to live with us. It was one of those dreams where you wake up and look around thinking, "Where's the kitten?" I don't know if I could resist, even tho Boo and Simone would not approve!
Hi Leah! Just checked out Threadless - great stuff! So glad you had a good weekend! Too much beer, fried food and bad funk sounds like a perfect escape.

Thanks so much for your patience while I go through the revelry of the Bar Exam (not). I have an idea, it's right there in my head; it's going to combine April and May PS cards!

I - finally - posted a pic of the one you sent me, so many, many thanks!

That Knitpicks alpaca lace storm is just gorgeous; I may get some for myself yet.

Keep on knittin'!!
