You Try to Work Under These Conditions!



OK....First of all, it's New Year's Eve...No.  We aren't going out to celebrate.

Walter is playing golf today and I am cooking for tomorrow.  Not New Year's Day....Walter's birthday. 

The kids are coming over and I decided to do pulled pork and potato salad today.  That way I won't have to spend the whole day cooking like I did on Christmas.

The rug is coming along nicely considering I haven't had a lot of time to work on it.  I am almost finished with the strap work between the blocks. and finished the blue in the boarder and most of the dark green.

But, I ask you.  How can I be expected to work with an ongoing party in the townhouse?  Tessie, after taking a couple of day off is back in the middle of it.  It has mostly moved to the living room.  The tree is down and the presents disappeared.  I think most of them were zapped somewhere by Tessie.  She is probably hoping that the rest of the gang will go home staggering and not remember any presents after partying for a week....

My other problem was this...While I was trying to take a photo of the rug, I would get the camera in position and as I was about to push the button, this happened.  Mookie kept edging in between  me and the camera and the rug...I actually had to push him away from the camera to take this....All I saw before was one golden eyeball  in the lens.

He did not want me messing around with minis when it was his turn for attention...

Anyway, I am going back to cooking now.  I have an order from the party goers for snacks....Maybe they will be satisfied with a sauce dish full of Chex Party Mix....I hope so.

See you tomorrow.

Hi Casey. I have been meaning to ask you "Where is Mookie?" He must have known he was missed.
Your rug looks great! I can't remember what house you are making it for.
You mean it's time to put away the Christmas decorations? I seem to have just put them up.But I do have a start on the New Year's Party at the mini restaurant.I best finish it up!

Mookie is so cute! I have two "helpers" like him, LOL. - I love Russian Blues, and I almost adopted one from a shelter but someone got to her before I did!

Your blog is great - I look forward to seeing how the rug turns out:)
