Although I work 7 days a week -- don't feel sorry for me, I do it to support my yarn and pug habit -- weekends are still eagerly awaited.  The fur babies get extra long morning cuddles with momma, he coffee is savored and enjoyed instead of gulped down in a mad rush and yes, there is often a bit of knitting to start the day.  I love weekends.  Notice there was no mention of housework (heh).  Okay, Martha Stewart I am not, although I have contemplated a major scrub down of Casa de Pug.  I'm still mulling it over in my mind.

In other news, the doglets are fat and sassy and enjoying some quality mom-time.  Ho-Tei's elbow has popped back into place and he seems to be walking better (damn those puppy mills).  I finished a shop sample mitten yesterday and if I could find my camera I would grace you with a photo.  Who knows, it might turn up yet.  So there it is.  Have a fabulous weekend.  The weather is crisp, the leaves are amazingly beautiful, the coffee is warm and delicious, and the doglets are snorting contentedly.  Life is good.

A Beautiful Day

Yes, Yes, Yes! What an amazing day we had yesterday. Historic, moving, uplifting -- I don't remember an election that was so powerful and made me so proud. This is the America I love and I am, for the first time in a long, long time, optomistic about our future. There has been so much keeping us divided, it is a breathtaking to think that we truly have the opportunity to be united! We all won in this election. People voted, people participated and people cared. Let's keep the momentum going and continue to participate, to care.

Okay, I'm off my soapbox. During the election results, I kept my sanity by knitting a plain old "vanilla" stockinette sock (magic loop, of course). I must have been a bit intense since I got all the way to the heel before the west coast polls closed. What can I say -- imagine what I would have been like if I wasn't occupied with yarn and needles!!!!

The pugs handled the evening nicely. They piled on my lap and snored. You gotta give it to them, they do know how to keep things in perspective. While I didn't get as much sleep as I wanted/needed, they were quite refreshed this morning and felt that I was a tad slow on producing their breakfast. Gotta love the puggies. They have their priorities.

Happy Wednesday all.
