Mo Cats Day!

"Mom, U R such a slacker! September 9 is almost OVER! Acshully, it's already tomorrow for Mr. Puddy!" Okay, okay. I AM a slacker, but you are sure keepin' me busy dishin' out the food day and night here. The cool weather's made you hungry, huh? Anyway, you are MO CAT than I can handle today.

Sorry about being "absent" lately, but we have been a little busy with school starting and stuff happening. Our water line broke and we had to shell out the big Plumber with the Backhoe Bucks for that one! Then the water line under the street broke and I guess that I, as a property tax payer, will ultimately pay for the repair of it as well. Then I just got fed up with doing chores all the time and decided to have some fun, so I started a quilt-as-you-go project using a basket full of 5-1/2" string blocks. I'm sewing four blocks into a larger block and it takes over an hour to do make each block! Since I want to finish a large bed-size quilt before the snow flies, I vowed that I would make one large block every day until they were all done or until I had 42. As of today, I have 24 (I made two today because I couldn't go to work). Of course, once I get the 42 done, I will have to sew each of those together in rows and then sew the rows together before I have a quilt. So, I'm thinking it'll be done mid-October. Photos when I cross the finish line.

So, Bhu, what do you have to say for yourself? "Hope efurryone is (a) not flooded out, (b) not on fire, (c) not shakin', and (d) not blowin' in the wind. Oh, yeah: GETCHER FELINE ON!" Thank you, Bhu. xxoo

Hey Bhu! My sister-before-me, Sweet Praline, told me that I needed to come by and introduce myself to you. She said you were a wonderful mancat!
