I am pleased to report that I am finally, finally, it's about damn time, finally tatting the 16th and last round of the Pineapple Heaven doily.
This last round is all chains, and should go fast. You can really see the pineapple shape in it now - pretty, isn't it? And I'm happy to say that I used split rings and split chains to crawl out of every round to go on to the next. I'll block it as soon as I finish, which should make a world of difference.
And I'm sooooo glad to be finishing. I'm really, really sick of working on this one project now.
I don't have really that much time to tat. Just sometimes at lunch and some in the evening - and then it's hit or miss. I work FT and have a hellish commute (2-3 hrs total a day) plus there's home and the Stooges. So - not much free time. I envy those who have more time!
In other news, since Moe is off at camp (yea camp!), Vader finds himself without a night time companion. Moe sleeps like the dead and doesn't care if there is a large cat standing on him. DH is not that way. The other night ,Vader jumped up on us in the bed at some really early hour (Vader seems to weigh 75 lbs when he's standing on your stomach with his pointy paws) and wanted petting. I pet cats automatically. DH, not so much. Then DH moved in the bed and Vader ATTACKED his feet, causing blood and pain. And cursing. This has not prevented Vader from jumping on the bed every morning since then - and I think he will continue to, until Moe returns.
Vader has been enjoying watching fish. A neighbor gave us this tank & fish, and Vader's been fascinated.
Mom says a fish tank is TV for cats, and I'm inclined to agree. (Sorry about the noise - DH was banging pots in the kitchen during this. The tank and everything about it belongs to DH, hence the mess.) Vader spends a lot of time here. Sophie and Cisco could care less.
Oh - I almost forgot this. The geek in me LOVES this.Look here for further info.
It's been hot. Bad hot. Hellish hot. It's been over 90F since May 29. (That over 32 for you Celsius folks.) I know I live in Hotlanta, but shesh, this is ridiculous! What will July and August bring? I shudder to think. We did get a little rain last night, and our plants are sooo grateful.
How is your summer going?
