Ashe and Hazel cornered me this morning and gave me a piece of their feline minds. Apparently they are upset that Wiji has been the only cat featured on this blog. Needless to say, there may be a post from each of them in the coming weeks. I'm feeling much better now; thanks for the well wishes! I think the picture of the thin piece of cardboard covering the yawning hole in my floor that was an air register confused some people. You see, we've been having furnace trouble. In the midst of diagnosing our furnace with a bad motherboard, we were also informed that there our ductwork was unsealed and that we've been pulling in air from our garage and under our house. This actually explains a lot considering that we've all had wicked allergies since moving into this house almost a year ago. So, to make a long story long, we paid a ton of money for our ductwork to be cleaned, sanitized and sealed. It took an entire day. Those of you with small children know how tiring this is considering I had holes in my floor and ceiling all day and a very loud Hepa vacuum and high power air hoses at work most of the day. The good thing is now we have clean and sealed ductwork. I hope to see a cut on our energy bills. Oh, and another reason I'm happy the ductwork is not sealed, the guys who did the work found 3 dead rats under the house. The thought of pulling in air from under the house is just that much grosser. I did finally pick up my knitting after the kids went down for bed and got much further on little girl's Christmas stocking. I'm also plugging away at the spa washcloths. I got to tell you though, I'm getting really bored. After little girl's stocking is finished, I'm making plans on a sweater. I also HAVE to hurry up and pick a pattern for the Solid Socks KAL. I want to do something more exciting than a basic sock, but I'm just not sure where to start looking. I think I'm going to spend some time with the Sensational Socks book and see what strikes me. I've decided to follow the crowd and get my own Frappr map, so please check out my sidebar and tell me where you're from!
