Finished Knitting the Simple Bunnies Toy

 Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. I haven't been posting here much lately, but I keep thinking about posting and sharing my knitting and reading progress and what has been going on in life lately. I have been busy with work, Millie, and planning my wedding going on the 5th time. It is really crazy how long it has been dragging out and we now have a date for September 26th. The way it is looking is we will have a ceremony with family and close friends and then go to a restaurant. We aren't able to have the big reception party afterwards as planned due to Covid-19. So that is where we are at now with the wedding and nothing is ever final and from previous times we know it is last minute that things can change. But Liam and I are just ready to get married now so it will probably happen as planned this month in September. 

I finished knitting the Simple Bunnies toy for my nephew. It was a fun knit and I hope that he enjoys holding it and looking at it. He is now 4 months and is growing so fast. I was looking after him lately and he is smiling a lot and making a lot of sounds.

Pattern: Simple Bunnies by Julia VR

Needles: US 6, 4 mm circular needles

Yarn: Snuggly Wuggly by Loops & Threads in soft gray

Millie is doing well and adjusting well to our home and being with us. She is playful and sweet. We are so happy to have her here. She follows us from room to room and enjoys spending time with Liam and I. She is attached to us both and loves a lot of attention. It has been really nice to be working from home and just being home more in general to spend more time with her as she gets used to our home.

I am reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, as you can see my reading has been very slow lately. I will work on finishing this book, then plan to move on to another one I own soon. For the remainder of the year, I will make more of a point to read more.

Thank you for stopping by! I have my next project in mind now and looking forward to starting soon. Lately I feel like knitting has been slow and on hold and I really want to get back on track with it. Also blogging here with you all is so fun and I miss it too. Things are still crazy here with the Delta variant and no end in sight for Covid-19. It is another one of those unpredictable times when we are in one of the waves. We are in the fourth wave now and hope it is a short one. Stay safe!

Have a great day!

Knitting Simple Bunnies Baby Toy and Reading On

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. It has been so nice having our kitten Millie with us, and it has been so busy in a good way. I love chasing her around and having her snuggle in my lap while I work or go on the computer. She also likes to nap beside Liam as he works as well. I haven't been doing as much of the things I usually do like knitting, reading, and planning since we got her since my priorities shifted to taking care of her mostly. I feel like now that she has been with us for a month, I am starting to incorporate back some of the things I did before but it is slow. I knitted more of the bunny toy and as you can see below, she was very interested in the yarn. I didn't knit for too long that day but she was happy to just bat at the yarn for awhile as I knitted.

I have been knitting the bunny toy for my nephew. I used the pattern Simple Bunnies found on Ravelry by designer Julia VR. I still have the head and ears to knit. I wasn't seeing the part of the pattern for the head, but the ears part is in the pattern and are up next.

I started reading This Close to Okay by Leesa Cross-Smith. It seems good so far, it is a new release this year. I also took out the book From To-Do To Done by Maura Thomas. I will be working again on getting things done around our home and in my personal life. I am still reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, just waiting to get my hold from the library.

Thank you for stopping by! I am now fully vaccinated got the Moderna as my second dose and Pfizer as my first. It feels good to be fully protected now. Hope you all are staying safe! We are getting through this. I see cases rising a bit in Toronto, but hopefully we can keep it under control. 

Have a great day and stay safe!

I got a Kitten!

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I haven't been blogging a lot lately because we got a kitten! Her name is Millie. She is now 10 weeks old, although the vet didn't believe me because she is so small. She has been keeping us busy this past week and a half. We brought her home from the breeder on July 10th and she had a rough night meowing and was not being sure of us yet. I was up every couple of hours lying on the floor across the room from her to give her comfort but also space. 

The photo below is from the second day we had her which was a Sunday. She was still not sure about us, but was letting us get closer and sit by her. She kept an eye on us and she started exploring her room more, her toys, and litter box.

Soon after, she let us first pick her up and she was sitting with us on Monday. She has since really warmed up to us and she is such a bright light for us in our lives. She is so sweet, playful, and just wants to always be around us. The photo below was one morning when she climbed up onto my shoulder and was chewing on my hair.

She has so much energy and loves chasing toys. She really likes the cat dancer and the ball spinning toys. She has started chasing after balls as well. It is so cute when she just runs around from one room to the next and gets the "zoomies".

During the week, while we are working she sits in my lap most of the day because I am working in the room we have open to her to play in. She always likes to be with us and lies on our lap and snuggles

Thank you for stopping by today! I really enjoyed sharing photos and talking about my Millie. Life has been so much better and full with her in it. I haven't been knitting or reading much, it has been all about her lately. In the next two weeks, I have some time off work so I will have some much needed time off and me time.

Have a great day!
