Workless Wednesday

Another Wednesday off and I managed to fill it with chores & responsible things... mostly.  Laundry, packing & shipping soap, making lunch instead of eating out, changing my sheets and such all qualify me for an "adulting" award.

In the afternoon Anne & I went to the birdfarm, got Frostys at Wendy's and enjoyed the beautiful spring day while getting caught up.  A chocolate shake soothes a lot of frazzled ends.

I even got a little knitting in - finished up 2 washcloths to ship with soap and put a few rows on Martha's red socks.  They are coming out very well.

Pretty as a Pigture

Added a guinea pig / cavy to the family.  I have been watching her at the pet store for about 2 months and finally couldn't resist any longer.  Thinking of calling her Trifle as she is a tortie & white. She's been home about 24 hours and things are going well so far. Lola is not hugely impressed but has not flipped her lid, either.
Lola and Trifle

Ready for her closeup
Her right side has all black markings (with white) and her left side has all red markings (with white) except where a black splash spills over her back. Unusual and stunning. It is like having two pigs in one!  I haven't had an abyssinian in a long time, I forgot how cute their crazy fur is.
