Here is my ride:
I have pimped it out to also be my office, travelling toy box and catering truck. But the only interesting thing in the car the day I took these pictures was the box from Knit Picks, which I had taken out of my mailbox on the way to town -- I was so excited to see the contents that I found a nail file in my purse and opened at the first red light I came to.
We chose this van because of the color -- Purdue gold, which doesn't show road dust too badly(well, I chose the van because of the color; Clay probably was looking at the engine or something). An added benefit is that the carpet is the exact shade of my coffee after I add the cream. I know -- I really shouldn't be allowed to drive, especially with an open cup of coffee, or a cell phone, or a nail file.
In other news, today is the Feast day of St. Francis. Yesterday's blessing of the pets on the school playground was amazingly snarl/hiss/dogfight free.
In honor of St. Francis, patron saint of animals, the environment and recyclers everywhere, here is a picture of my sweet cat, Lucky, who turns 15 this month:
We're not sure of her exact birthday, as she was rescued from the Wal-Mart parking lot where she had been dumped with her litter mates. (I feel like a real knitting blogger now that I have a picture of my cat!)
