Sleepy Kitty



  1. Good morning, Wedny! Thanks for the shot of Sleeping BEauty — what a beautiful image to begin my day!

    *much uber-healing wrist ju-ju*
    fondly, Diana & Orion

  2. As always, a lovely picture to start the day off with. Makes you want to reach down and give a gentle tummy rub as you head off to work.

    Don’t forget to wear your wrist brace!


  3. Happy Hump Day!

    And Lucy’s just too precious!

  4. What a sweetie-pie. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wendy, I tell my Mommy that petting a kitty (like *me*) will help her wrists get better really fast. I wish I were still asleep like Lucy.

  6. Let me just say, ahhhhh

    Is there anything better than a sleeping, warm, safe and happy kitty? I can hear the purring.

    And take care.

  7. Me, too, Lucy! Let’s all take a nap. zzzzzzzzzzz

    Take care of yourself, Wendy.

  8. I wish I looked that good when I’m sleeping.

  9. It’s nice to see Lucy sleeping, and her mommy taking a break!

  10. This last week, i have been sick, and i didn’t read the blog, and all the comments.
    So when i came back, surprise !
    But you know, you’re right. You do not belong to anybody but yourself. it’s important to do what you want, and the way you want.
    Bonne chance, et courage!

  11. Sleepy Wendy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Many thanks for the photo of the lovely Lucy. Take good care of yourself and get well soon. I’m keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

    *sends healing energy to your wrist and lots of ear scritches to Lucy.* She’s such a lovely kitty!

    Oh and you don’t have to explain anything to any of us, Wendy. If you need a rest, go take it! I have a live journal that I used to update everyday but like you, and like anyone, I don’t always have anything to say so it gets updated about once a week now. Rest your wrist and yourself. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. of course it’s your blog and you can do what you want (duh) but the daily lucy picture is the dumbest thing i’ve seen in a long time.

  15. I have been an avid — but silent (until now) — reader of your blog. You have given me (and many others) hours and hours of enjoyment, education and inspiration. Thank you so much for your generosity. I have always wondered how you have found the time and energy to keep it going.

    As for the photo of Lucy — I love it.
    She is such a beautiful kitty !

  16. Just got back to your blog after a few days away.
    Yours is one of the two blogs I try and read daily.
    Wendy, it’s your blog and your life.
    I think it is lovely of you to share it with others *at all*, never mind as long as you have.
    It is a privilege for us to see all your lovely knitting, participate in some knit-alongs, charity knits and the rest with you.
    As soon as your blog start to own you and stops being fun, it’s time to re-examine.
    I don’t think you need to compromise anything.
    There’s lots and lots of interesting reading and knitting in your archives.
    take care of your wrist, and enjoy what you are doing.

  17. What Liz said. I for one, enjoy your Lucy pics. She is such a photogenic kitty!

    Take care, Kirsten

  18. Hmmm….

    Might we have found someone who didn’t get their obnoxiously requested illegal pattern copies???

    Just wondering.

    Vendy – I think this your best blog yet. Such economy of word, jah? Such nice pussy is the Lucy, jah? I hope wrist be good, jah?

  20. cutie patutie lucy cat…made my day…thanks wendy, hope the wrist is feeling better soon

  21. Hey Wendy, thanks for the inspiration, and the tips (I’ll be steeking with confidence soon thanks to your clear instructions). You must be a dynamo to keep up with the blog and all your amazing projects. Reinforces my belief that you can never have to many projects (3 on the go, 6 in the wings…)! Take care of yourself…
    With thanks from a big Canadian fan.

  22. What a wonderful way to relieve the stress after teaching a real “wild bunch” of kids all day! I just picked up our fuzziest kitty to get a purr, and then I turn to your page and see a ushy-gushy purr in the making! Lucy is such a love! Thanks for the boost! Don’t feel obligated, though! Rest that wrist and we can all go to the archives for a different Lucy each day!

  23. Oh man what a great idea!! Rest that hand and enjoy that adorable Lucy. Ya know how some folks read the last page of a book first, just to see how it ends, I have alway sdone that with your blog, scroll scroll to see what Lucy was up to. Take as long as you need my dear, as long as I have an accasional Lucy picture to look I know that both of you are doing fine.

  24. Love the pictures of Lucy (and her running commentary). Please take care of yourself; as much as I’ll miss your regular blogs, I’d rather you recharge your batteries (and heal your hands) so we can look forward to your occasional posts. And DO let us know when you have your next haircut!

  25. Hi Lucy,

    My name is Babe and I’m a 4 month old puppy and I want to help you take over the world.

    (We’re glad you decided to stick around Wendy!)

  26. Wendy,

    Do what you need to do for yourself. If you are ready to put blogging behind you, there’s nothing wrong with that. How wonderful that so many people care about your writing.However, the choice is yours.

    Wishing you all the best,
