Just Some Items..........

.......that aren't necessarily connected but part of my little world.
It has been a very long time since I made an afghan. I thought I would give it a go. Due to the very warm weather, I'm just knitting in long strips and will attach them later. I would like to show you pictures, but Rebel and Napoleon have different ideas.

While knitting, Napoleon likes to try and suck on the needle.

You can't even see the colour at this point.

When I am not knitting, Rebel has commandeered the part I have worked on.

Apparently it is quite comfy, cumbersome needles and all.

I was tired of having to defend my little project so I decided to play Wii. I have yet to figure out how to connect all my systems to the television, so I just plug whatever one in I need at the time.

Napoleon is quite helpful.

It is difficult to get back there.

In my email box this morning, someone sent me a weird little tidbit of information. The month of August in our current year will have 5 Tuesdays, 5 Mondays and 5 Sundays. The little note at the bottom said this is a rare occurrence and will not happen again for 800 years. This led me to wonder what other weird little things happen in August. I love Google for this reason. I learned that little tidbit is not actually that rare, although it is fun. The next time this will happen is in 2023. The site I stumbled on is called OMG Facts. On that page it went on to explain that the number of days works in a cycle. In 2009, there were 5 Saturdays, 5 Sundays and 5 Mondays. That is pretty cool.

Another weird little thing I have discovered is close to home.

I don't know why, but for some reason, Rebel and Napoleon have taken to leaving one kibble in their dish after every meal. I'm sure there is a reason for it, but hell if I can discern it.

I'm going to read my book outside with my coffee before the skies open. I hope you all had a wonderful week end.
