The Puzzle Revisited January 11, 2018

Progress has been made on the lower part of the puzzle but I’m really struggling with the upper part.  Please note the missing piece on the right of the puzzle.  THE CAT is the villain.

Meanwhile it’s still raining outside.  Rain, rain, rain.  I think I prefer it to the icy conditions recently experienced on the East Coast.  I was particularly struck by the pictures of  ice and snow in Perkins Cove in Ogunquit Maine.

Unfinished Knitting January 9, 2018

Another unfinished object – it’s easier to work on this puzzle than to figure out what I have to do with my knitting

I went out to buy some cat food – the special brand that is hard to get – Katerina’s favorite.  I came back to this:

IMG_4977  Mayhem – how could she be so mean!  It was as if a tornado had swept through.

IMG_4872  Turn my back for a second and the cat pounces – is she deliberately doing this?  I did get her the cat food she likes – her action is inexcusable!
