Happy Lucy Day

I know it’s Valentine’s Day, but more importantly, today is Lucy’s official birthday.

Lucy was a rescue cat when she came to live with me in 2003, and all I knew about her birthday was that it was in February 2001. We decided to make her official birthday halfway through the month. What could be more appropriate than Valentine’s Day?

And I got to stay home today because of the ice storm, so the birthday girl has had plenty of attention.

Here’s the state of my street after the plow came:

And here’s the state of Cromarty after some extra knitting time:

I started a new sock — can you guess the yarn?

My favorite length for sock needles is 6″, by the way.

The little Coke bottle from yesterday’s blog? It’s a flash drive, as several of you guessed/knew:

I got it by saving up points in Coke caps and redeeming them at the My Coke Rewards website. Hey, everybody needs a hobby.

Here is Lucy opening her gift from her Auntie L-B. What can it be?

It’s a little knitted catnip ball!
