cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

*blink* (posted by Lani)

Tell Don I said "Nice landing!" And I'm not being sarcastic -- I can think of all sorts of ways that could have turned out not as well as it did (curly propellers notwithstanding). I think it's hysterical that his friend took all those pictures, although I guess that's a guy thing ... bragging rights and all that. They both definitely get bragging rights for that.

And Steve? It's love. Love of you and love of brownies. You can have both, you know, as my Steve reminded me with a hopeful look when I read him that portion of your post. I hope your Steve is having a wonderful time, and his itinerary looks FABULOUS.

I found a copy of the Ballband Dishrag pattern from Mason Dixon Knitting online, yay for me! Natalie, creator of the great string bag pattern, actually has the book; I've asked her whether, aside from that pattern, it's worth actually buying and I'll be interested to hear her take on it. And speaking of Natalie's bags, did you finish yours? And have you used them yet? I've finished my two and have quite a bit of cotton left, so I'll probably cast on a "warshrag" this week and check it out. It looks like a brainless, fun pattern.

I've done nothing whatsoever on my Tempting this weekend, or on anything else crafty aside from picking up some pink girly yarn for a baby blanket for Mel. I thought about knitting it but I think I'll take the coward's way out and crochet it instead; I KNOW I can knock out a beautiful crocheted blanket quickly, and my knitting confidence isn't that high. I did pick up a pattern for an adorable baby hoodie that's knitted, though, and I may try that down the line.

So what did I do this weekend? Well -- I've done umpty-seven loads of laundry, talked to Steve about our broken camera, gone grocery shopping, looked at new cameras, cleaned my house, forwarded camera links to Steve, played with the kitten, bitched about not having a working camera, consoled the poor dog who is being traumatized by said kitten (he's totally overcome his fear of dogs and now appears to consider Pippen as something like a large spotted jungle gym, I've GOT to get pictures), pointed out all the missed photo opportunities due to lack of a functional camera, cooked lots of meals, muttered about the lack of working cameras in this house, and done some furniture shopping. I want new tables for the living room and need some type of storage option for the dvds/tapes/video games. Oh, and a new camera! Until then I leave you with this:

Jim and Alex, at the Club.

I guess you need a camera, hun? I'm so glad you blogged and I found you here...I think I have your email addy so I will be in touch. Nice blog, btw, and hi to the other Weaver sister!

I like the blog, and the pictures as well. I also looked for your email addy. I'm glad that you found a new home here. I hope that everything goes well for you on the board in the future. Email me if you'd like.

Wow! What a title: Natalie, the creator... LOL!

Anywho! I did read your comment at my blog and I'm not ignoring it, I promise... I'll try to put together a nice review of the book on my blog later, after work. So far, I still don't know if I'd actually buy it or just keep checking it out from the library, y'know?

Oh, and just some of my thoughts on the blog - it would be convenient if somehow you could get the "posted by" at the top of the post. That way we don't have to scroll down to see *who* wrote the post we're about to read. And maybe a list of "who's who" in the sidebar, so I know what relation each Steve has to each of you?

Otherwise, I'm loving it!

Ooh, good suggestions, Natalie. I think I can change it around to show who posted what at the top, and you're right, that would be nice. I'll work on that now. As for the who's who (the rogue's gallery?) a Cast of Characters should be showing at the top of the left column so that you can have some idea who we're talking about. Is it not?

At 4:16 PM, Blogger Natalie said...

Yup, it's there - I'm just a bit slow sometimes, I guess. :)

Thanks for putting the byline in, too!

Glad I found ya!

That damn Dishrag is something I want to make just because-never mind that I've never knitted a thing in my life. Post a pic when it's done-especially now that you got that new camera.
