Knitting knots around the family.

Nobi is our indoor kitty, and for good reason.  She’s neurotic enough while indoors, much less when she escapes for a few moments outdoors.  She prefers to reign from my desk.  I just caught her looking intently out the window.

“What’s up, kitty?  Ohhhh, I see…”

There is a caterpillar crawling across the window screen.  The cat’s tail is swishing and she’s talking to the intruder.

Good kitty.  Nothing like a pane of glass and screen to get in between you and your prey…

Oh, how I never imagined the chaos that would enter my life when these two did.

The crazy antics, the startling moments of creativity and intellegence, the squabbling, and then the working together… being an only child, I could never have seen this coming.

I could never have imagined how rich and full my life seems with these two in it.  They’re not the best-behaved kids, but they’re funny, charming, witty, creative, intellegent, and full of all those little details that just can’t be named.  And I’ll take that over clean rooms and organized laundry.


Weekend May 4, 2009

I had a busy weekend.  Friday, my husband’s best friend of 26 years finally got married!

I might have had a “small” hand in “decorating” his truck…

Saturday I had a retreat for one of the aspects of my volunteer life at Bastyr University.  They have a small pond in the middle of the courtyard.  I thought these guys were a statue, until one moved…

Yesterday I went to Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium with this bunch of wiseguys.  And I didn’t even leave them there!

And now it’s time to return to being a somewhat productive member of society.
