Our porch is being screened in. It will be wonderful to be able to use it more. In this picture the screens are not up yet. They are a dark green, so it does darken the porch, but not too much. Now we just need to kill the mosquitoes that are now trapped on our side of the screens. Stephen filled in some holes in the structure of the porch and added a latch to the door.
Because our porch is now enclosed, our two kitties have been delivered! I’ll try to take pictures tomorrow, but most of the time today they hid behind the shelves that are on the porch. Myka and I went out, sat on a blanket, and read for a while this afternoon. Hopefully they will get used to us quickly.
Here is the washcloth I knitted. Isn’t it cute?! I used a basic cotton, craft yarn. Also, please notice my bracelet and Myka in the background. She loves being a princess and dressing up. And sometimes I get to dress up a little too. It will be fun to have the sewing machine out and be able to make things for her and with her. I think she’ll really enjoy that. First, I need to find a desk for the sewing machine to sit on. Usually I’d just use the table, but the chairs are too low. It would be really uncomfortable. I’m going to ask if they have some desks in storage here that I could look at and maybe a chair as well.
I found these on my phone (among many others…). Guess who was taking pictures with my phone! We have a self portrait on the left and a very happy Emery on the right. The image is blurry, but he is so excited to see his sister! How cute is that?
We still don’t have a seat for Emery. These chairs have a large gap between the seat and the chair back, and he could fall right through it. So this is how we feed him most of the time. He doesn’t seem to mind very much. And I love this picture of the three of us!
