If you’ve been around here for a little while, you probably already know that we love, love, LOVE the series Avatar–The Last Airbender. Heck, my boy–back when he was known as “The Bald Kid” even dressed up like the main character, Aang, for Halloween!

I’ve also crocheted another character–Sokka,  from the show for Chompy a few years ago. Our history with this stuff goes waaaay back. So, when Lyndi asked for a crocheted Aang for her birthday—that was an EASY yes from me.

I mean…..those EARS!! Aren’t they just adorable?!!

And his sweet little arrows…well, he just stole my heart.

It’s quite likely I’ll have to find a reason to make the whole set. Can’t be helped.

Sooooo, what do people who don’t crochet, do all day?

I can’t even imagine.

Happy Birthday Lyndi!!



A Grasshopper Story

So…I have this very, very naughty cat. No, not that one.

He’s a good boy.

Not that one either.

She doesn’t have wicked bone in her fluffy little body.

Yeaaaah. That one. She knows her name.

Little Miss Chili Naughty Pants.

I know. She looks all innocent and sweet now  but believe me, it’s just a façade. Any minute, she will disappear out the kitty door only to reappear in 3 minutes time with a live, fully functioning GRASSHOPPER in her mouth!!

She used to play with it for awhile, till it was half dead or all the way dead, as I scurried around the room looking for a way to get the creepy thing out of my house, without…you know…having to…touch it. Gag.

Well, little Miss Naughtyness got so used to me chasing her prize around the place, that she decided to help me skip a few steps. NOW she just runs in,  finds me and plops the nasty critter right at my feet, or ON my feet– anywhere that her treasure can be fully appreciated.  Bless her.

If I’m at my desk, she’s content to drop it on the floor behind me so that it will hop right up on the computer screen–or better yet–on my BACK, which it has done right in the middle of a Zoom class…twicein. front. of. people. 

Oh, yeah–class gets REALLY good sometimes…

especially when someone is uncontrollably screeching like a six year old.

Then we could talk about the ones that we don’t find…

until later.

Cat for sale…cheap.

Inquire within.


The Rain Dance

So I know this guy who is pretty dang happy…

to have been selected–along with his sister, Jillian–as an extra…


the CHOSEN!!!

He was so happy, in fact, that while trying on the basic costume, he got deeply into character–SOME kind of character anyway–and graced us with a  happy  dance…of sorts.

Now, I wasn’t about to stop him for a lot of reasons.

One being that I was thrilled for him too.

The second is that he was dang fun to watch.

And the third reason is…

we need rain.

Love you Rhenny!!
