First things first. Follow now lives with us! I was able to get him from the SPCA. I don’t want to get into the how and why. Let’s just say the whole thing was insane. He’s been here for four days and he already is looking better. But he still only ways 7 lbs. Today he even let out a few meows. They were very deep, nothing like how Dizzy sounds. Dizzy has taken to hiding under our chest of drawers, though Dizzy and Follow haven’t yet met. Follow is under quarantine because of his respiratory infection.

I also went to look at house today. It needs A LOT of work. I really can see the potential in it though.

My DH is away for a conference all week for work. So I had to look at the house alone (with my mom and the realtor). I’m so anxious. I want the house but I don’t want to sign him up for work that he is not prepared to do. I guess I have to wait to see what he says. In the meantime I’ll continue to wander around the house and stalk it. (They got an alarm system because of me).

I finally finished some bags that were supposed to be done months ago. Two sisters bought bags from me to help me raise money for my Leukemia and Lymphoma Society campaign. I hope they like them.

I think I’ll make some more for the shop. So I’ll be updating by the fall. I’m working on some shirts and onesies for the little ones too. I’ll let you know when I do the update. And I leave you with this:

I finally updated the etsy shop. I have to stop myself from handmade goodies from artisans everyday at Etsy. Another place that has all of my money is Ten Thousand Villages or as Amber and I call it “the villages”. It’s particularly difficult not to go there because I work and live only a few blocks away from the Chestnut Hill shop on Germantown Avenue. I love that I have found such lovely objects there. I have this bowl and the matching tea pot (after I broke ours), baking dish (which they don’t sell anymore) and five-piece serving set (a wedding gift).

Anyway, I just need to get a grip on spending money in there. Also, I saw these mittens at Purl Bee and I want them so badly. Crystal, you know you’re going to making these for my birthday, right?

I rediscovered my Magnetic Fields 69 love songs . I haven’t listened for years. Lately, I can’t get enough. I leave you with this video.
