dum de dum Rocky Road done

OK poor attempt a the Rocky theme but I finished the 2nd Rocky Road sock yesterday morning. Knitting the magic loop on a 24" size 1 addi is perfect. I have already cast on another sock with the same needle. I am using Amanda's NH Knitting Mama Graffiti that I won in her contest.

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.
