If you were a tank top...

I'd be done right now! I finished the front of the baby sweater, and I'm working on the sleeves. I always forget how much time the sleeves take. "Oh, I just have the sleeves left!" I say breezily, as if I'll be done any minute. Mmmhmmm. But I'm on the home stretch (do the UKers get that reference?), and expect to finish soon. We're going to the Cubs game in Milwaukee tomorrow, so that might be a good time to finish.

Well, you've already seen my workspace, complete with helpful cats. Here's Matt's desk:

Reading: Finished The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove by Christopher Moore. It was nuts, as expected. He's such a crackup. I wonder what it must be like in his brain.

Writing: Not much to report. Still revising, but slowly.

Cooking: After missing the good stuff at the Saturday market, I had a very good Wednesday market today. Pattypan squash, yellow and green zucchini, beets, and some lovely raspberries. And two basil plants. My window box of basil is finally thriving, but there was a large gap where none of the seeds had sprouted, so I tucked in the plants. Looks great! Next year, I am growing herbs from plants, not seeds. Did I mention that most of my plants have other stuff growing with them? My tomato plant has rosemary (which I didn't even plant this year) doing rather well, and there are mystery plants in with the parsley, cilantro, and basil. Weird. Whatever's in with the parsley is out-growing the parsley, too.

You too! I mean I have this tall thing growing out of my plants with tiny purple flowers in the garden..the cilantro to be exact. Then the little red radishes aren't growing too well and in some cases coming up white and big. Don't even want to talk about my baby spinach that I planted twice...where is it?LOL

That's so you think the random plants came with the seeds or got blown over and sprouted? I can't wait for the day I can have a real garden and plant this point my apartment doesn't get enough sun so all my plants are slowly dying off. :(
And to abruptly switch topics, Mirando always looks like he's smiling! :)

Mirando looks so comfy and completely oblivious to where he is. They're such entertaining cats.

I'm not a sleeve person either. It's the button bands that get me though, so small and yet they take so much time.
