So, I made up a word. In an effort to counteract the grey skies I see out my window, here is a shot from cuteoverload.com:
I have been fighting a cold the last few days. B. takes the early morning feedings, so I take NyQuil at 2am and sleep until 7. Baby K is such a sweet little thing! She doesn't fuss unless we're late with her bottle...late meaning more than 30 seconds after she opens her eyes!! She has been sleeping well, all things considered. Typical newborn schedule of 2-hour naps then awake just long enough to change the diaper and eat.

I haven't had the energy to sew. Last week, I was waiting on thread for two shop samples that need to go on the longarm. The thread has arrived so I will put on the first one that will be quilted with a pantograph. I think I can get that one done this afternoon. The second one will be freehand - yikes! My mom wants a leafy vine type pattern, which my brain is translating as the first step towards feathers, which scare me to death, so I'm playing the procrastination game. I'm also not sure about my thread color choice, so I'll have to recharge my camera and put it up for a blogosphere vote.

I have two procrastinator activities...Big Kahuna Reef from Yahoo games...version 2 has 750 levels - woo-hoo! That can keep me busy for weeks! It's a simple match-3-in-a-row elimination game, but after every four levels or so you unlock a new fish to add to your underwater landscape. And that underwater view is my new relaxing screensaver.

Number 2 on the do-anything-but-quilt activity list is travel the blogosphere on a web ring. I have a list of favorite blogs on my yahoo page, so I check in there first. Then I start at Tonya's site and travel around the Quilt Maverick ring. Then, if I still do not have the energy to climb the stairs to the longarm (which is a high probability since I *am* sick, LOL) I start at Samantha-the-Fabri-holic's page and travel the Stash Quilt ring. It's so much fun to see what everyone else is working on. Maybe one of these days I'll get back to it...let's hope the decongestants work fast!

OH I love baby furry animals....

I'd love to get a kitten, but my girl cat would love to be an only cat and only tolerates my boy cat as it is....
