Itchin' For Knittin'

I think I'm going to just do it, I'm going to pack my little knitting bag and try to find some time to take a lunch break. And, by launch break, I mean a knit break, of course. I usually eat at my desk so I can get more work in, and I while I love KIPing, I generally don't like to be a distraction to others at work. I actually work in the basement (not as bad as it sounds) far from my colleagues, I may just shut my door to my office and knit there. We'll see.

In other news, I've been asked to design a pattern for a book. I'm not sure, but I'm guessing I shouldn't be letting any cats out of any bags, so let's call it "super secret number deux."

And finally, good old Leo brought our sweet pup to Santa Barbara and the surrounding area, yesterday, and they had a grand time.

Here is a picture of them en route.

This doesn't seem significant to you, but 6 months ago, Panda was inconsolable in the car, she would drool and shake and hide under the seat. We had been working for years to help her work through it. We'd only take her in the car when it was to a place she loved going and we did so weekly or more often. We finally put her on some medication that calms her down and she has never been happier. Some people bristle at the idea of giving a dog anti-anxiety medication but it really has seemed to improve her quality of life, and, in the end, that's what's important to us.

Here is a picture of Panda meeting and greeting at the beach.

It's small but that's because Leo took the pic with his phone.

So that's that. Time to get ready for work.
