I would have been fourth?

Which wife of Henry VIII would you have been?

So true!

Except for maybe the shoe thing. I like my feet and like to dress them up!

A Mother Always Knows

Some how she knew I was going to work in the Fashion Industry!

Even at such a young age my mother could see that I had the makings of a very fashionable girl. I mean who doesn't wear that hairstyle?

Thank you for the memorable gift Mamasita

Not Divorced, Sometimes Drunk, Now Covered in Cat Hair

It's here, it's here and I've already read the first couple chapters even though I am in the middle of two other books!

I can't believe other knitters aren't posting more about Divorced, Drunk, and Covered in Cat Hair!. I've enjoyed reading Crazy Aunt Purl's blog for over a year. As a matter of fact it was her blog that first introduced me to the knitting blogsophere, which is kinda funny considering she writes more about her life and less about actually knitting. I just connected, as many others have, with her raw honesty about where she was in life and how it was not what she had expected it to be.

So far the book has been exactly what her blog is like, funny, witty, and sometimes honestly sad. I'm really looking forward to reading the rest and learning from her experiences.

Although I am not divorced, never been married, I can relate to the Drunkeness that follows a great let down and life change. And now that I've had to move into a house recently where five cats reside I can honestly say that most the time I'm covered in cat hair. While I don't like that part of living with that many cats and I certainly don't like the smell of too many litter boxes or finding kitty vomit (looks like cat food covered in slime) in Tupperware containers on top of the fridge (roommates quickly threw containers away) I cannot stop myself from wanting to say hello to each cat, scratching there heads, and making sure there food is replenished.

All in all I would have to say the book is entertaining just like Miss Laurie Perry's blog. There are even a couple of knitting pattern at the back of the book!

Happy Knitty Reading!
