The Saturday When Everyone Else Was Reading

Yep, that was today, when everyone was busy with the new Harry Potter book. The Tim said it was really busy at the bookstore today, and people were already lined up this a.m. when he opened up. So not everyone went to the late night party last night! This makes me feel better, as I think it would be fun, but have a hard time staying up that late on my best nights ...

Since I was not reading the book yet, I did some other things today - laundry, for instance. Not glamorous, but necessary. And I went out to buy some gift cards for birthdays of nieces and nephews who live out of town, a birthday present for my great-niece Naomi, who will be 2 years old next Sunday, and a baby gift for the new baby across the street. Then I checked out a place where my yoga teacher has classes that is pretty close to home. (Only two more yoga classes to go.)

I stopped at the farmer's market, the regular market, and the dry cleaners. Who says I'm not fun???

Anyway, I came home and baked Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies, since my friend Sharrie had given me some of her "overflow" zucchini. I had some butterscotch chips, so I added them, too. Time will tell if that was a good idea.

Then I took some pictures. Of the completed left front of the baby kimono, for instance:

And then of "the boys" - Garden Kitty on the left, Jetsam on the right. They are nothing if not "helpful" ... as soon as the camera comes out , they are right there, ready for their close-ups. (Tess wasn't around. She was either a) sleeping upstairs, or b) updating her kitty jihad website.)

A quiet, but pleasant day at Chez Ravell'd Sleave. Excellent for a Saturday!

Oh, the kitties are so cute. Jetsam makes me miss my Riley, as always. Finally catching up on blogs!
