More work avoidance  
I spent some time working today, but a lot of time doing other things. Halfway through the day, I felt this wave of must-create-something come over me. My initial reaction was to grab some yarn and try to think of how to create a simple loom and weave some cloth, but after a few minutes of considering how much time that would take, I decided to knit instead. I have this pastel sock weight yarn and size 3 knitting double pointed knitting needles, but no a clue on how to knit socks. Luckily for me, I have the Internets and I looked up a pattern. I'm about 3/4s of an inch into the sock and even though I had to undo my first attempt because it looked like ass, I'm feeling cozy and happy about making something again... even if it is just a sock. (I should probably plan on making two of these...)

Olivia was an Explorer today. It was pretty hot so I decided to open some windows and the front door and close the screen door. The screen door is practically invisible, which makes for some awesome cat tricks. June thought she was being very slick and tried to run out and crashed into the screen. Not once, but four times. It was hilarious! Then Olivia squeezed out under the screen and decided to go on a walk. I followed behind her to make sure she was going to be ok. She was Brave and Daring. She walked around for about 20 minutes before I picked her up after she hissed at the neighbor. She is one Tough kitty.

I also hung out with Daniel and chatted a lot. We had fondue and I ate too much chocolate and fruit. It was yummy, though! :)

My papers are still undone. I'm a slacker.
