This week was so jammed packed I don't know where to start. I'll just hit the highlights. There were multiple work events, but only pictures of one. Since 1971 Nova Scotia has donated a Christmas tree to the city of Boston as a thank you for the help they offered the province during the tragic Halifax Explosion of 1917.

I think I have mentioned here before that I am not really a lover of cats. But to tell the absolute honest truth, I'm scared of them. There I said it! There is no rational logic - my grandmother was terrified of cats, so was my mother and guess what - me too. And they can sense it, they stalk me. Seriously! Lol
So after work I stopped at a pet store to return something. They have store kittens that free range around the store. I'm trying to ignore it. And then it happened......... I'm just standing there, minding my own business when a rogue ninja kitten climbs up the back of my coat, past my neck and lands ON MY HEAD AND SECURED ITS POSITION ON MY SCALP WITH ITS CLAWS I swear it in 2 seconds it took for this to happen, my life flashed before my eyes! Ok, you all know what happens next. I freaked out "get it off, get it off". The clerk grabbed the kitten while I attempted to regain my composure. Let's just say it took a few moments. It's lucky the clerk was so close or there may have been a flying ninja kitten because I was close to flailing like a psycho.

I really don't know what's gotten into me the week but perhaps the fear of Christmas approaching has inspired me. I finished hooking this pillow top just now. I started it just before supper last night and it measures 16x16 inches. Might be a record for me

I think I've hooked more in the last few days than I have in months. When you get the hooking bug its best to make the most of it :). I finished my challenge rug but not ready to show it yet. Still may be an area I want to change. I finished hooking a Christmas piece and before supper I started this pillow that's in the latest rug hooking magazine. It's a fun little project.

Today was the day - Miss Abby went to the vet for her spay surgery. She eagerly ran inside. She loves to see the girls, they all fuss over her. She still thinks it's a good place. They were laughing this morning, wondering if after today she will still run happily inside. Lol She weighed in at a whopping 10 pounds. I wasn't sure what to expect. Poor little Millie had a rough experience way back when. Then handed me a sad little barely conscious puppy wrapped in a blankie. She had to be rushed back in 2 days later. So I was prepared for the worst. However Abby is bigger and stronger. She ran to me. I was stunned that she was so perky.

I survived Halloween with not a clown in sight. But just in case my fearless protector stood guard at the window until it got dark.
