Undone. Continuing.

You know how some people have those eyes - the ones that change color based on what they're wearing, or their mood, or the weather? I have those eyes. They're mostly olive green but can go from grass to grey depending on a lot of factors. I think this yarn is the same way. Today is a stormy day and the yarn is taking on a steelier, bluer hue. I like it a lot.

Remember my lemon tree? Well, I live on the ground floor, surrounded by community gardens. Nice. But it also means mouse central. One got in and got to a Dagoba mint chocolate bar I had sitting by my knitting. I like to have a nibble or two late at night. The thing is, the mouse also got at my projects pile and ate a hole out of my pixie's head. The thing ate my knitting! AND my chocolate. I am displeased.

But then I have this face grinning at me while I scurry around taking pictures and it makes it hard to be angry about anything. His little half-open mole eyes squinch up to almost nothing when he smiles, giving him the appearance of such beatific joy that it's hard to not smile back at him.

Your Arewen is looking smashing! I will have to read your other posts on it!
I am sorry to hear about the mice!
He is such a cutie, no wonder that smile makes you feel good!

I know how you feel. I live next to an orange grove in Florida- mouse/rat, squirrel- why don't they move out of the attic! when I tell them to do so, snake, raccoon, armadillo heaven- for them. My cat did leave me a lovely little dead squirrel this week on the porch. She's good at keeping things out of the house so what can I say.

Hi! What a winning smile!

I feel your pain - last week I stepped on a mouse! I assume that my dog had already dispatched its soul to mouse heaven, or I would be really depressed about now. I would love to chase them all back outside, but I am afraid that poisoning them would also poison the dog, and the whole mousetrap thing is just too mean and nasty. So I guess we are dooomed to share until they find a house they like better.

Knit on!
