Oh Happy Day!

Happy Friday... and it really is a happy day around here!  I got the phone call from our wonderful vet this morning and my smile couldn't have been bigger... Zeus' liver levels have gone down!  They are still above the "high norm" range, but they've gone down!  And, they are still a tad higher than when we originally discovered the elevated levels at his check up in February, but they've gone down!  We will keep the big guy on both samE and milk thistle, and retest the levels again in September.  Do you think he was happy to go for a r-i-d-e to the v-e-t yesterday?


Happy Fiber Arts Friday!  Does anyone have plans to knit in public tomorrow?  I thought World Wide Knit in Public Day was just one day, but I see it's actually being celebrated for a full week, June 9 - 17.  There are a couple of events happening in my area tomorrow, however I'll be busy celebrating my anniversary and possibly having another dog park play date with a former foster pup!  I think I make up for it however, as I knit in public nearly every weekend at a race track somewhere in New England (this is one of two off weekends we have between now and October).   

I haven't gotten much actual knitting accomplished this week... a couple inches on a baby hat that I don't have photos of is about it.  I received this in the mail and got a little distracted thumbing through it...


Did anyone else snag a signed copy of Knit Red: Stitching For Women's Heart Health by pre-ordering it through Jimmy Beans Wool?  I'm going to borrow the description from Jimmy's website for those of you who haven't heard about the book yet...

"Jimmy Beans Wool is proud to present Knit Red, an instant classic and must have coffee table knitting treasure for every knitter. This book contains 30 fabulously red garments and accessories designed and donated by celebrity designers who openly share their personal experiences with Heart Disease and tips on how they stay heart healthy!"

I'm a long time supporter of the "Go Red" campaign and immediately knew this was a must-have book for my collection.  Not only does Knit Red feature some beautiful patterns, but there are quite a few recipes as well.  What I love even more, however, are the designers' personal stories and tips!  It doesn't hurt that I am quite partial to the color red and have quite a bit of red variations in my yarn stash.  Now... what to cast on first?

Enjoy the rest of your Friday... looks like we've got some more rain coming in (of course we do, the sun tricked me into taking my truck through the car wash earlier today!).  I'll leave you with some Friday Fill-Ins...

1. I knew it was love when... he said it first!
2. My heart can be broken but you always know how to mend it.
3. A dog is unconditional love.

4. My how you have sunk to a new low (additional confirmation that a former co-worker was never my friend).
5. Can you see a rainbow through all this rain?.
6. And the song remains the same.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to getting some knitting time in, tomorrow my plans include having a fantastic 17th anniversary and Sunday, I want to get some things done around the house - after all it's a very rare no-race weekend for us!

1. Happy to hear the good news about Zeus!

2. I have that book and love it! I too forgot I preordered so it was a nice surprise when it arrived. I was also surprised that it was signed.
