Whiskers on Wednesday: An Oldie But a Goodie

I am cleaning out my old FlyLady Control Journal and came across this in the “Personal” section. I’m not sure where it came from (likely it was Ye Olde Internete) or who wrote it, but it’s funny.

  • On the first day of creation, God created the cat.
  • On the second day, God created man to serve the cat.
  • On the third day, God created all the animals of the earth to serve as potential food for the cat.
  • On the fourth day, God created honest toil so that man could labor for the good of the cat.
  • On the fifth day, God created the sparkle ball so that the cat might or might not play with it.
  • On the sixth day, God created veterinary science to keep the cat healthy and man broke.
  • On the seventh day, God tried to rest, but he had to scoop the litter box.

Yet another FO

This time, my first stranded knitting project. I completed the 2nd mitten the other night and I am, again, left wondering what made me think this project was taking too long.


Perhaps the braids? While they did take a while to work, the entire second mitten only took about 3 days worth of knitting once I’d set my mind to it.  Here’s what the inside looks like because I know some of you are into that kind of thing:

This pattern was a very entertaining knit, and I’ll definitely do it again. And what of stranded knitting? It is AWESOME! I can’t wait to do more, only right now I have to turn to Christmas knitting, so it’ll have to wait. Also, I wonder if I can knit a sweater in time for Rhinebeck…
