Bad kitty chronicles

Yesterday, while Seven helped me pick fabrics for some sewing...

... and Sunny minded her own business, sleeping in my closet...

... Skid took matters into her own paws. She likes to burrow under things, and likes to sleep on the loft bed.

Put two and two together, and you have a ripped sheet and a happy cat.

Me, not so happy.

Luckily, there was brownie mix.

And knitting.

Lizard ridge blanket is out again. What's on the sofa is the second to-be-felted slipper on the needles.

Autumn in New England

I have been trying to go to New England as often as possible in the last couple of weeks, anticipating nature's firework display. Finally, this weekend I was rewarded with images like those.

The weather has been perfect, warm and sunny during the days and chilly in the evenings. Pumpkins have been around, adding to the proliferation of orange.

Roadside sighting. She seemed pretty vain, just sitting there waiting for me to take her picture with no fear.

We took walks in the woods, which were less red and more yellow where there was little sun.

All these were very vibrant reds and oranges in my screen, but are coming out pretty yellow and faded once uploaded. I hope they seem better in your screens.

Sometimes even common mortals like us get to walk on the red carpet.

I picked up an acorn for the kitties, who got very excited by it and are still playing with it. They must have trained me well, because I had to look through lots of separated ones before I could find a whole one. It was well worth it!

Everywhere you looked, it was a different sight of greens, reds, yellows, purples, and everything in between.
