I worked in the garden yesterday morning, still weeding out the vinca vine. It rained last night and it looks like everything grew a foot overnight.
Something is wrong with Zorro. He came home late Friday night at bedtime. I go to sleep. The next morning I get up with Sissy help, this girl just won't let me sleep in. I get to the kitchen put the food down, Stanley was out all night so he comes in. No Zorro.
Since he did not run in with the girls and it was early (CRS), I figured he was out. So I go out to call for him. No Zorro. I take my coffee to sit on the couch to read the Sunday paper and there is Zorro on the chair opposite me. I go to him and he runs off. I follow and he hides. I find him later sleeping in a up turned cat carrier, that should have been put up in the attic 3 years ago. He goes to bolt but I get him and do a body check. He is skittish but lets me love and pet on him. He purrs. I put him on my bed. I am able to check him out. No cuts or bruises. He is just wary. I brush him and she stretches out and loves it. All in limbs seem to be OK. I then I leave him to rest. He spends the day on the bed.
At 6pm I am reminded by Pia that it is pass dinner time. So I go through the feeding routine. Call for Zorro. He shows up but does not want to eat with the others so I bring his bowl to him. He eats. Good sign. He then goes back to bed. I know he has used the litter box since he is the only one that has to scratch to pad to the point of turning it over. This morning no Zorro.
99% of my furniture are hiding places. I can no longer get down on my knees and search like I once was able to. So I keep calling him and will be searching for him all day.

This is a close up of my Japanese Red Maple. I brought this for $3.00 about 15 years ago. What did I have to lose? It is about 5' high and is beautiful.
This is a MF dropped stitch. No nice way to say it. This sucks big time. So I frogged that GD thing. So here I am tonight. I will try and get it back on the needles tonight. I hope, the stitches are so tiny.
I will leave you with a picture of Stanley watching me work in the garden Saturday.
Now excuse me while I go fix the damned sock!!

You must check out Donna's, Random Knits, finished Hyrna Herborgar. It is stunning.
Denise, Jejune's Place, finished her Ice Queen. Love it!!
Karen, Yarn is my Metier, had a tour of Lorna Laces and she didn't buy a thing! What restraint.
Gina, Sleepy Eyes Knitting, finished two but please check out the The Phiaro Scarf. I have this tagged but after reading her notes I am putting it way back on the list.
Bea, Baa, Baa Black Sheep finished her Plane Socks. I want to try the garter heal. (Her contest is over. So if you entered good luck to you)
Monica over at Passion Knits finished up a pair of Mad Color Weave socks. Love the color.
Cinnamon Girl has a new addition in the family. No contest but you can help her decide on a name.
April is Autism Awareness Month. I worked for 8 years in a sheltered workshop. Unfortunately, many of the clients we had were older and the medical advances that we have now and/or the awareness we have were not available when they were young. I'm speaking of 40 years and older. We did have younger clients come into our program who had been mainstreamed into the school system. Anyhow, Sharon is raising money for her walk in September, if you can help her out. Her page is here. Her goal is $250 and she is just past the half way mark.
April 10th is ASPCA Day. Go to Nicole's at Lap Dog Creations page for her contest. I DVR Oprah and this show was nothing new to me but I want to get the word out. Please do not buy your puppies from a pet store. (Here is a link to Pet store Cruelty). Here is the Oprah show that was on this week and puppy mills and they also mention buying puppies from the Internet. Please, if you did not see it take a few minutes to watch. My state of Virginia has puppy mills. 980 puppies and adults were rescued last November. Read this article, people are giving up their pets as they can't afford them as they are loosing their homes. Our government says were aren't in a depression! but all these stories are depressing.
Amanda at Modest Purls is having a Color Celebration contest.
It is Sherriknits BlogGIVErsary and she is having contest.
For something random. I saw the ad for this Movie in our local Senior citizens newspaper. I tried to get the image but could only give you this link. So, knitting is for old people! You will need Flash to view the intro to see what I'm talking about but if you don't you can go here.
this was my view leaving for work at 6:44 Friday morning. The morning are getting lighter

I finished these up Sunday night. I used my new Kitchener Stitch dog tags to finish up the toes and they came out perfect. Which I purchased at The Loopy Ewe. This also the first time using my sock blocker to show off my socks. Just figured out that this is my third pair for this year. When I posted I'm Loopy I did not include the picture of my purchase. (I know I did, I sure but?) So for your viewing pleasure.I woke up yesterday morning tired and by the time I got home from work I was a walking zombie. I went through some magazines and was asleep at 8:00. I did wind up my Rocky Road yarn. I was going to knit up the Clapotis but after receiving this yarn I am going to knit another pair of socks. These will be done 1 at a time with 40" addi as I am not going to take the time to split it up to knit two at a time.
