And the cat purrs

I sit here on the couch with Icy cat on my armrest sound asleep and Pippin purring steadily on my right arm. This makes typing on the laptop very interesting since my elbows are basically pinned to my body. Personally I think Pippin is expressing his pleasure over the Arizona Cardinals winning their game tonight. One of my business partners has season tickets and they have waited a long time for a good team.

Today was a very lazy day of reading, knitting and sitting in front of a nice warm fire. Our fireplace season is very short, so I make the most of it when the weather is cool. I also was able to get Roxie's winnings together and will ship her prize package out on Monday.

I got sworn in as a school board member this week and have my first official meeting next Tuesday. One of my first official notices was of a bomb threat at the high school. According to the paper, a former student made the threat but thankfully there was no bomb. Next Tuesday is my first official meeting though it doesn't look like anything too controversial. The budget is going to be the big problem for the year, but I know the whole country is in pretty much the same shape.

Have a good rest of the weekend and stay warm!

P.S. I found this link on Ravelry and had to add it in for all of us who try knit with cats.

Typing with cat assist is always such a challenge. They do it to make us stronger and better people.

Good luck and wisdom to you in your new position. Stay safe driving home after those late night meetings!

Congratulations on school board again.... By the way, where did you get the name for your blog? I am reading a series by Robert Jordan now and came across it....

You know--one of my very best friends and I got close during a couple of bomb threats... a pain in the neck for you darlin', but Diana and I will be friends for life:-)

This will sound a little awful, but we used to look forward to bomb scares and fire drills, they were such a great break in the monotony of the school day. And then, when the person issuing the bomb scare was caught, we got to talk about the scandal for weeks. Kids that we were, it never occurred to us that anyone would actually put a bomb in the school. Looking back, I'm glad that I didn't realize that such a thing really can and really has happened.
