Everyone's Napping But Me!

Doesn't Geronimo look like a small lion?

Not to be outdone, Mirando hangs out like a snow leopard:

Knitting: More on the Pinwheel Baby Blanket, more on Tempting II. Speaking of tempting, I'm trying to resist the urge to cast on for Picovoli with some Knitpicks Shine in Sky (that I got with a baby blanket in mind, but the color is completely different from their website, so I saved it). I have three projects going as it is, the baby blanket with a deadline of March 11 (the day of the baby shower), and I also want to make a hat and booties and maybe one of those cute little baby sweaters. Okay, so I'll wait on Picovoli.

Reading: The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde. I'm about a quarter of the way in, and I like it so far, but I keep thinking about how things are related to the Thursday Next series. Several of the characters and the setting come from a book Thursday visits in The Well of Lost Plots. Is it a spin-off, or just "inspired by"? It also takes place about 20 years after the Thursday Next books, so I'm not sure what that means.

Writing: None in the last couple of days, due to lack of sleep and sick kitty. Mirando's all better now, so it's back to quick revisions of chapters 1 & 2 of the murder mystery, then it's time to start chapter 3. Still researching Victorian architecture and northern California history for the Novel.

Cooking: I've decided to post two versions of the black bean and corn enchiladas, so I'm still setting those down.

Blogging: It's been over a month now, which is weird, because I used to get diaries for Christmas as a child, and I never wrote in them more than three days in a row before abandoning the whole journaling idea. I'm not sure what makes this different. Maybe that I can add pictures of the cats. Or that people visit (over 1000, apparently), even if they end up here by accident.

Thanks for checking out my blog. One of the reasons I started this is to learn some things about computers. I'm generally pretty useless. So two questions along those lines: How do you know how many people have come to your blog? and How do I put buttons and other stuff on my sidebar? I'm dying to put up my gold metal!

Your kitties look very majastic. Rawr.

I never wrote in diaries either. Maybe you write in your blog more because you know people will read it and comment?
