How many minutes are in a day?

1440 Minutes... but I make mine stretch. :-)

Meow. Yes, I've been sewing kitty cat hats out of fleece and old sweaters.

Fred models for me. Thanks, baby. You're so hot.

This was the sweater. Cute, but too big. Nice for kitty stripes. (tutorial soon)
One sweater = four hats, and two glittens with covers

(you know, fingerless gloves...like mittens.)

(This is what I do to pictures of myself that I don't really like. Distort it so that I'm only kind-of recognizable... have to show the hat actually worn as a HAT, not a ski mask robbery thing-- can you imagine?)
Little Lad in his yellow yoda hat. Yes, the new puppy name inspired me to create yoda hats. I'll make some green ones with larger ears next.

By the way, I've had some people ask me recently how I find time to sew and craft. And so I ask: how can you not find time to sew and craft? :-) It's nourishing. And necessary. Like reading or bathing.

For hand stitching, I use car or waiting room time. We went to the Tulsa Zoo over the weekend. That gave me two full hours to sew while Fred drove. When you factor in clinics, meetings, the revenue office... wow, lots of "free" time.

So, where was I? Weekend plans. On Saturday, we had an impromptu playdate.

Boys. Gotta love 'em.

That evening I hosted a Ladies Game Night for some friends.

Pay back for Murder Mystery Night, Jules!

We played "I have never," Imaginiff, Apples to Apples, Taboo...

Then Zoo on Sunday:

And Family Firepit Night when we got home:

Phew. Busy weekend.
Last but certainly not least, Amy's surgery was today. I kept up to speed through Vu's Facebook postings. Really, going up there with four kids to spend the day in the waiting room wouldn't have been wise. Although I felt like I should be there.

I'll see her tomorrow. From what I hear, the surgery went perfectly. The entire kidney was taken out. Amy went "down to sleep"easily, and woke up smiling afterwards. That's Amy for you. She'll be in the hospital most of the week,, so we're all bringing plenty of magazines and things. Any reading donations are appreciated. And please keep praying for a full and speedy recovery.
