Long Weekend

At last, a nice long weekend. But it started out on a crazy note on Friday. We had a barricaded gunman one block over from here. I've never seen such out of the ordinary things as I saw that day in my neighborhood: swat teams, tanks, helicoptors constantly flying overhead, big huge guns, streets closed, lock down. It did not end well. The gunman lost his life. I've seen him in the neighborhood, knew he was a bit "off", but never expected this. May he RIP.

Yesterday it was back to normal. Many neighbors out planting flowers, working in their yards. It was nice to visit and catch up with them. I did get some planting done. I wanted to take a picture of this flower before it fades away. I just can't think of the name of it at the moment. It blooms in my back yard every year around this time, and it has spread. There used to only be one flower.

It just fascinates me how it is so round!

I had to take my cat back to the vet the other day for a recheck. She had an accident in her cage on the way there. Pee all over the place, and she stunk. When we got back home I gave her a bath. That was the first time I've given this cat a bath. Shadow was not crazy about it but she tolerated it pretty well.

It was hard to take that picture, she wanted to run and hide. She's all fresh and clean now, no more stinky kitty.

I've gotten a little more knitting done on my sock. I'm just not really feeling the love for this sock. It may end up in the frog pond and I'll use the yarn for something else.

I've put it in time-out for now. Maybe I'll start something else this weekend. I did do some sewing yesterday. I'll hopefully have that project completed today and I'll show you in my next post. It's an Amy Butler bag. Really cute!

I was on my way home when I saw the cop cars going past, then an abulance...then an armored vehicle. That's when I thought, hmmmmm.....this is not the run of the mill 911 call.

I have the feeling we are going to see a lot more of this as the economy continues to be craptastic.

I know what you mean about going to the frog pond. I can't continue something if I'm just not feelin' it.
