Whats up......

Well - I promise I am knitting. I just have been really slammed at work. I have 2 ladder shawls completed. I am hooked on this pattern! I love it. Pictures will follow soon.

Baseball games have taken up a large amount of time here lately on the weekends.

Plus 2 new kittens.

I did join the Grey's Anatomy knit along with Dawn. I am a newbie to Grey's, but I watched the other night and really liked it. I am going to catch up on the DVD's.

Ravelry - status is looking better all the time.

Oh My - The CFA Cat Show In Winston Salem

Well -
As you all know, my summer was very rough with the loss of two of my babies and my surgery.

Loki has been a true joy to have in the house. He has put some spark in all of us as well as Kisa.

Now to the story of the weekend. Wayne wanted to take me to the CFA Cat Show here in Winston-Salem on Saturday. Purpose - we wanted another Cream and White Persian due to their personalities and their overall character. We went with the purpose to meet breeders and get names of breeders in this region, NC, TN, VA, SC, GA etc...

To those that know me - you know I believe in fate. I spotted Gina as soon as I walked in the door and she had a short hair Exotic in her hands that looked exactly like Taz with short hair. I started crying and she let me hold him. (Note: I called Taz "My Little Sunshine". Wayne said if we ever got another one, we would name him Sunny for Taz.) Guess what her cats name was - "Rise-N-Shine". Do you kinda see a little fate starting?

Well needless to say - after an hour, we met a lady that had a cream and white kitten in her cage. Now remember, this is my first CFA cat show and I had no idea what to expect. This lady was sitting with 2 cages of kittens and we talked 45 minutes while holding this little cream and white male. We asked her a question and she informed us that the breeder was in the ring and would be right back. Well - here she came and when we turned around - it was the lady that I met at the door with Rise-N-Shine!!!

Gina of
She is a breeder, and guess what she breeds. Guess what we got....

Meet "Daddy's Little Sunny Boy of Cotn Hill"

Yes - Kisa has her nickname back for a couple days - "Miss. Hiss"
Loki thinks that all 1 pound of him is a Mountain Lion. He was growling and Hissing and Spitting. It was rather funny to watch. He turned 12 weeks old on Friday.

Sunny just sat there and looked at them. He is a cutie pie and so very sweet. Sunny is about 4 1/2 months old. His eyes will be copper as well. He already has his daddy wrapped around his little paw!!

Here is "Miss. Hiss", "Ferocious Loki" and "Sunny Boy"

The "D" is getting ready to start

Well, I have officially decided.... I am FLUFFY! (new term for ladies who cant get into their clothes)

I saw a sign this weekend at a little craft show. It stated " I don't skinny dip, I Chunky Dunk!"

I weighed myself and I am officially 50 pounds more than before I had Hunt man. Well - that was 15 years ago too. BUT STILL - 50!!!!!

I went to a baby shower a couple weeks ago and they took a picture of all 7 of us and I look bigger than the one expecting!!! I have it hanging in my office as a reminder!!

My Nutri System should be here within the next couple of days. MMMMM MMMM! Nothing like wholesome meals in a box made for the microwave!!

My friend says I am too hard on myself right now - after all, I just had major surgery 75 days ago. Pre-surgery, I could get into a couple things that post-surgery , I cant!!

My husband is very supportive and wonderful. He even bought the Nutri System and is trying to get me excited with little goals. He is going to go and buy a home gym (already have a treadmill - which by the way is great for hanging laundry on!)

Along with the "Dreadful D" - We have his class reunion (Waynes- not mine) coming up and a wedding to attend. So I have to get a dress and look good for both in November. Now I have put myself on a Yarn Diet too!! That will push me as there are several things I want to make and this will push me more than most other bribes.

If I loose 5, He will get me a mani-pedi.
10 gets a gift certificate to a yarn shop
15 gets a new Beijo Bag and another gift cert to a yarn shop.
20 gets New Cole Hanns and another gift cert to a yarn shop and a gift cert to Simply Sterling.

Stay tuned for this as I am sure it will be a ride. I am starting this weekend so I can make sure I do not feel bad with a withdrawl. Needless to say - I am going to be knitting like crazy during this as well!!

Wish me luck!!

Baby Boy has a name and there is a winner!!

After much thought, Baby Boy has been named. He is a MESS!!

His name is "Prince Sebastian Loki Of Preciouskatz"

We will call him Loki. The name Loki \l(o)-ki\ is of Old Norse origin. Mythology: Loki was the mischievous troublemaker in the Norse pantheon of gods. TRUST ME - This name fits this little FIREBALL!!

He is fitting in and Kisa has decided that she really likes him. I have caught her grooming him and they are napping together as well.

He is a cutie pie with a sweet personality.

I have bought both him and Kisa from Sharon at
She has wonderful babies and they have such great personalities. Both Kisa and Loki have the same mother.

The Winner is Diane. Otherwise known as Lady Di. My husband fell in love with the name Sebastian, but he also liked the meaning of Loki.

Diane will receive a sock kit with a bag, yarn and pattern.

The runners up were Sterling and Gorbeh. They will receive a special little prize as well. I will be in touch with all 3.

Thank you all so much for responding. There were some great names!!
