What a week!

What a week this has been! I never thought I could get so mad at my cats. They seem to have declared war because everytime Winter leaves with me, he keeps coming back. Apparently, he's never leaving.

They've started fighting with each other (much worse than usual), hissing at me, occasionally forgetting where the litter box is, bringing down a curtain rod, opening the dog crate, and Thursday, accidentally causing a gas leak (at least that's the theory). The stove was off when I went to work, but when I came home nine hours later the stove was set on simmer. My stove will flow gas when the dial is turned, but won't light unless the dial is turned all the way. Thank goodness they didn't do that! I would have come home to a fire instead. 

The nice part of this week was Sunday (the 21st, not today). Winter went to his first puppy match and took second in his class! So well behaved (what a surprise, given how he is in class (you never saw a more hyper puppy, nor one with a more piercing bark...I kept saying "Ouch!" instead of "Quiet").

It was a long week and I didn't get much knitting done. A couple weeks ago, at knit group a few of us cast on for the Knit Picks Palette Fair Isle Cardigan. This is my first Fair Isle.

Here's to a less eventful, less stressful week coming up! And happy birthday to my brother F and tocrowjoy!
