How Phoebe spent spring fling

I found a new friend while my Mom was off at the Loopy Ewe's Spring Fling! I have been spending a lot of time getting petted and spoiled by Monkey Boy here. MB feeds me and get me water, but best of all MB likes to give me treats. as you can see I am getting lots of hugs and lovin.
I love hugs!

We went for a little run this evening. I love running! I also tried to paw my way into Mom's car but the lady said Mom is not hiding in there so I came back inside for a belly rub and treat. Mom comes home tomorrow. I think I will miss my new friend Monkey Boy.
I know he will miss me.

Working Mom

Not been much knitting going on around here lately. Work is great and I am really enjoying it but it has cut way into my knitting time.

Working at this optical place is turning out to be a lot of fun for me. I like the clients and the Doc and S are great. I am eating better and taking better care of myself. Seems I may have forgotten that work can be rewarding and even fun if you are lucky enough to enjoy what you do. Who knew going back to work would make me feel so much better? I feel like a better Mom too. Pretty fair trade for a bit less knitting time.

However, I am not going to have tons of time for dyeing yarn so I am going to close the Etsy shop. At least for awhile. I just need that time for something else right now. I think next Saturday will be closing day. Get it while you can!

dipped infinity scarf

I have been obsessed with this pattern for a while now. I kept looking at other knitters finished scarves and just had to make one (or 4 you know me!). dipped infinity scarf by Laura Chau. Yarn is Knit Picks :rainforest,teal,tidepool,calypso,whirlpool,marine,bluenote,and jay.. Pattern is well written and really easy to follow. Perfect for mindless knitting.

All the news

Wow so much has happened around here in the last week I will just give you the rundown with photos to follow.

The show I am working on War Paint opens in 4 days. My stuff is ready to go. I feel good about it. Hubby is very good in this. If you get a chance go see it. It's a great show.

I finished my baby hat and sweater for MMM. Pictures to follow

Mom and Dad were here. We had a great visit. Pictures to follow.

We have a clutch of baby bunnies living in the brick box around our light post in the front yarn. We have not yet seen Momma Bunny but she would not be around during the day. We counted 4 babies. We are staying hands off until we know if Momma is coming back.

I start my new job in the morning.

I got daycare all taken care of for the rest of the school year and this summer.

Bunky and I got Hubby to watch Doctor Who so now thanks to my dear friend Carin we are all Doctor Who nuts. New series starts next Saturday here in the USA. 7:00 pm here.

so in case you miss the tweet I got offered an optical job today and I took it. I start Monday. This works out really well as my folks will be here this weekend and I tech the show this weekend. Funny how in one day my life has gotten very busy. I like busy. I'm good at busy. I'm happier when I am busy. I can't wait.
By the way this is a big nation wide company with a good reputation. The GM told me today that she has only had 2 people leave in the last 5 years and one of those came back. For those of you in the know this is nothing like the last company I went to work for. Right next to Sunday knitting meet up!

Possum Watch

Friday morning before I took the kids to school the dogs chased this little guy right up a tree in our backyard. Poor little possum was so scared he/she stayed up there all day. Bunky took this photo around 6:00pm. The teenagers in the park saw her and started throwing stuff at him. Hubby had to use the big voice to get them to stop. The kids kept an eye on him until 10:00 pm and he was still up there. He is gone this morning. The kids are glad he got away. MB was worried somebodies dog might get him. I told MB I was sure the little possum was digging in some trash can last night looking for his dinner.
