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!


If a picture is worth a thousand words…

…this is going to be a very long post.

Tonight’s sunset was, once again, spectacular. It was so spectacular that more than one photograph is required to showcase its splendor:

The first Iris sock is knitting up quickly:

Sam’s pink bunny has taken a beating, so i introduced another toy in the hopes of making the bunny last longer. Sam loves the purple bear almost as much as the pink bunny:

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:

I finished the socks:
