There are more birds outside than usual and both cats are on high alert. They are dividing their time between bird watching and cat fighting. And they are dividing their cat fighting between Biggie starting it and The Smalls staring it. They are in house entertainment if nothing else.

Every day I assume will be the last for The Smalls but he pretty much has said already that today ain't going to be the day.


Meanwhile Biggie has nearly grown out of the collar I made him last week! It seems like The Smalls eats way more than Biggie and yet Biggie is getting biggie-ier by the day while The Smalls is going the other direction.

I may have accidentally ordered more yarn yesterday.

Today will be more shopping. I want to replace the curtains in the bedroom. I have three closets in there and they all have curtains instead of doors. The ones hanging in there now are just old and tired and sad. I need new and fresh and bright replacements.

And probably there will be knitting. I have a couple of errands to do but none that have to be done today so likely I'll save them.

Curtains and Cats

Turns out the closet curtains are a weird 75"x60" size. The designer who redid my condo in 2005 bought the originals. The now sad, tired originals.


I looked around at curtains and couldn't find any that I loved. And really couldn't find any that would fit. So I'd have to buy big and hem. Blech. Then I thought of sheets. Twin flat. Again none that did it for me. Then I thought of shower curtains and hit pay dirt. Then I discovered that there is such a thing as extra long shower curtains - some at 75"!

Then I found one that I love. It may totally overwhelm the room and make it feel claustrophobic and I will hate them but, bless Amazon, if that's the case, I'll just return them.

I love it when the cats adopt new haunts. This morning they both did. Biggie's never used that lower bunk and neither one of them has ever even noticed the basket that The Smalls is on. And yet, there they are, completely zzzzz'd. I can hear Biggie snoring.


Until I got up to go pee and then get a tangerine. They both had to get up and see what what was happening. Then The Smalls went to see if there was more breakfast left (there was). When I got back to the couch, I looked over and saw that Biggie had now claimed the basket. My turn, no, it's my turn, no, it's my turn...


Also a good size comparison.

Update: There was some conversation, no papers were signed but I believe there was a paw pump...
