I am updating this blog from my office the night of the first Reunion weekend at Smith. Exciting times. I am hoping that the weather holds out tomorrow, as it would be wonderful to see the pageantry of the parade outside. Smith is truly a place steeped in tradition.

Other than work, a new an exciting element is Mom and Greg getting a new kitten: Logan. He is most amazing. The little guy curled up in my lap the entire car ride home purring. Can you believe that!? Lily hates the car. Logan is quite the little man. Any time someone is home he is spending 100% of his time with them. Example: Logan was napping in my lap while I was chatting with Mom. I got up because I had to leave to come back to Massachusetts and Logan went right over and curled up in Mom's lap. She was getting up to see me out, but he was just to quick for her with his trans-lap action! Cutest kitten behavior ever! I wish I had pictures, and I do, but they are all on my cell phone because Mom and Greg don't have a digital camera. Next time I go home, I'll have to bring mine and take some good shots for the blog. How exciting for Lily to have another family member!

Catch up

It's been busy with work (fiscal year end) and the (last) Phonathon and just life.

Fun event: We went to see The Yarn Harlot last weekend - we being Missy and Sean and Seth and me. Great fun. Seth said, "She is such a riot." And he doesn't even knit, although I think he recognized what she said from me somewhat.

(Missy gets photo credit for this image, but she said on Sunday that I could use it. I hope this is okay. She seems to have quite a lovely camera. You can see it better at her blog.)

This week was crazy because Lily wasn't feeling well. We went to the vet. This was a traumatic event for all concerned (Lily, me, everyone at the vet's office.) Lily is the loveliest cat in the whole wide world, but she gets a bit anxious at the vet. The visit did reveal good news: she's fine - she just had a bit of indigestion. She's on probiotics now for a little while and doing much better.

I have been working on Seth's blanket. It's about half way done, which is awesome considering I started it mid-March and am working on US 9 needles. Here are some pictures. Lily is in all of them. That is because she thinks the blanket belongs to her. (She, in fact, thinks everything belongs to her.)

Sorry her eyes are overly glowing in that last pictures. She looked into the flash. Still the cutest kitty ever!
