Here We Go Again…

Baby New Year, I thought we had a deal…

Sure, so far you’re treating me kind.  We had pajama day at our house yesterday.  Nothing like taking the fur girls out in a gown and a shawl when it’s in the teens outside, but I did just that.  However, tomorrow brings the first memorial service of the year, and Kathy and her family sure didn’t need to start the year off with her father in the hospital.  Cut it out already, will ya?

And Mr. Bettis, the fur-girls are making a public plea for you to give your humans a belated Christmas gift.  Be a good boy while they’re away, will you?  Even if it is several days in a row?  Gretchen swears that being good unexpectedly will result in a treat windfall.   They’ll be home in the evenings to praise you, and Sissy suggests that you might find all the cooing and “oh what a good boy!” stuff almost as heady as a good romp through the house with pillow stuffing flying…

I’d all but promised you a finished object report today, but I had no idea how long it would take to do the adorable hem on the Spiralucious21 little points down, and three to go with a kitchner of the provisional cast on stitches that started the hem, with the ones left over at the end of the 24 points.  I could have finished last night, but Gretchen DEMANDS to go to bed around 11:30 if we’re still up, and I bet you couldn’t deny that face her wishes either.

So, that’s first on the agenda as soon as I get home tonight.  Then, I’ll get ready for the afternoon tomorrow, which will be spent with Rosanne and Daddy Dawg.  Their fur-boys may not know it yet, but they’ve invited our fur-girls to join the festivities.   The Knight began yesterday begging Sissy to prove him wrong and have TWO good Saturdays of socializing in a row…

That’s not exactly a “sure, Dadaw, anything for you” look, is it?  Wish us well…  Those two photos tell the tale.  Sissy is the Princess, and basically makes what she wants happen.  Gretchen is the little cutie pie, and she gets what she wants with that “pweeze?” look…

What does your first weekend of 2009 hold?  Are you done with the holiday happenings, or like us, do you still have a couple of friends to get together with before you truly say it’s all over?

  1. Oh boy, Sissy has that look. I think she’s plotting something.

    I love Gretchen’s little sweet face, and Sissy’s look shows how she really feels about it all. 🙂

    This weekend – I hope I don’t have much going on. Just the normal – laundry, knitting, hopefully a nap.

    Such sweet faces!:)

    Weekend…cleaning, laundry, putting Christmas stuff away, hopefully knitting!

    Gretchen looks like: “please, can we, can we huh?? huh??” While Sissy looks like: “It’s my way or no way!” I see more of those faces on Reggae!
    This weekend…nothing planned, most likely a lot of knitting, if I get the urge, perhaps some stash (re)organization. Thinking back to last year, I was in Key West for the 1st weekend of the year!

  5. I’m planning a quiet weekend. We need it after all the holidays and visitors and such. Besides, school starts Monday and I’m way behind on knitting and sleep.

    Now I ask you, HOW could Mr. Bettis say no to that face of Gretchie??? How could anyone? LOL

    And Sissy appears to be saying “You’ve got to be kidding right, what were you thinking?” SNOL What a look! She’s been reading my blog & checking out how Jazzy looks at my camera! he he

    I’m done with the holiday stuff, and that tree is coming down this weekend! Sick or not! 🙂

    Mr. Bettis heeded the advice and was a very good boy indeed. After galloping through the house with greetings he was given a special gingerbread treat for being so good. Thanks to the fur-girls for their good behavior vibes:).
    Those pics are adorable. I love them.
