Really I should have called this post: Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman in While You Were Sleeping, because while we were sleeping, Gilly had a Sticky Adventure. It's not actually as bad as it sounds, it's a stick of tree not adhesive substance. Gilly had a pear and a stick twice her size when I came home. I had given her the pear but she had found the big stick all by herself right up past the garage. We went for a nap and were woken by a lot of banging on the back door. There was Gilly with the stick trying to manoeuvre it through the dog door. To give her her due she did work out how to get it through sideways and I thought that was that and went back to the nap. That was not that. She assembled her accessories: several dog leads, a biscuit box she had spirited away, some toys, a palm frond or two and my green poplin from the box in the hall. She then proceeded to sit upon the poplin and gnaw the stick. If you look carefully you can spy Peri in the corner of two pictures. She was in awe of Gilly's audacity, but not for joining in with her endeavours. The stick has been in and out several times now and is heralded by a galloping sound interspersed with several loud bangs on the back door. Never a dull moment.
When all is quiet then I know that something wicked, but sweet and cuddly, my way comes.
Harki and Peri had a lovely walk in the crisp early morning. I love Autumn mornings when there is almost a frost on the car and a definite shiver in the air.
Monsters Vs Aliens was a very good film. The new 3D glasses are like sunglasses and the 3D effect is excellent. The film has lots of in jokes for grown ups. I liked it A Lot. I would have worn my glasses everywhere but I donated them to MrsDrWho to use with her 3D books at school.
The Chicken was enstuffened and the slightly wonky car sewn and likewise finished off. I put Wee Demon Spawn's initials on the number plate!!! It came together really easily though I didn't put any flowers on it. The pattern is in either Softies, or More Softies.
There has been No Knitting. I am in a knitting funk at the moment. I hope I will become more knitting enthused soon. I did start a scarf with my wool made from rock but I left the pattern at MrsDrWho's house and I haven't retrieved it. The most energetic thing I did today, apart from carrying the shopping bags down the stairs, was soaking my feet in some warm water with lavender soap bubbles. Which Gilly was sure was a tasty drink.
I have to do some serious clothes soaking tomorrow. Yesterday I had three tops on in the space of fifteen minutes. Gilly managed to put her grubby paws or face on them all and I had to sponge my skirt too. Good thing the weather is still warmish and sunny so my clothes will dry quickly.
Here are two Good Girls who don't (often) put grubby marks on my tops!!!
Tomorrow I hope to make a little quilt for the Wee Demon Spawn, from fabric printed with lots of roads etc on which he can drive his cars. This afternoon I did some serious Comment Replying: a weight off my mind!!!
