The pattern of gorgeous sunsets continues:
Kishka continues to sleep in odd positions:
Sam continues to guard her toys while sleeping:
The Iris socks continue to grow:
I am (obviously) obsessed with socks right now. However, none of mine inspire me tonight:
It’s definitely time to cast on another pair!
…this is going to be a very long post.

I didn’t mean to do it, but today ended up being portrait day in this house.
I managed to get an eye level shot of Kishka:
I snapped Samantha as she looked out the window:
Parker stopped batting at the camera long enough for me to take his picture:
And finally, the shy boy Romeo. He would not open his eyes for the camera.
And finally, furry paws!
Just after sunset:
