Thursday I will stitch!

I went back out on Wednesday and went to the library and to the other 2 craft stores.

At the library I got the 2nd in the True Blood Graphic Novels, read Cat Fancy since they had a kitten issue this month and then got two books on cats. Decided to get Doctor Who on DVD with the 2nd Doctor called The Mind Robber. I've seen it on netflix but this has extras like the audio commentary that I like to watch. Also, since I did read 6 books in the time frame for their Winter Reads I picked up my prize. Lets hope I really do like coming back to Michael Connelly because they had his book The Black Box. They did have a nice mix of books and graphic novels, a few YA novels and some audio. Also in my envelope was a Thank You card with a picture of the original library, a book fine pass for $10 this time instead of $7 if I get any fines before May 31, 2013 and a $10 gift card to B&N. I just need to decide if I'm going to save it for a magazine/book next month or if I'll put it on my nook to get an ebook or apps.

At the craft stores I didn't find a charm but JA's finally had a pack of Baseball buttons and the shoe looks good enough. I'm stitching something for an MS Walk and I didn't want to use the awareness ribbon that came with the chart. I'm hoping I can get off work that Saturday that the walk is scheduled. I'd been able to do the walk for 3 years and now I don't have Saturdays off and I forgot completely!

While driving home I realized another reason not to have a kitten. Today my friends from High School have set out to plan another get together sometime this summer to Chicago. If I get the kitten then that's money that should have gone to Chicago and I wouldn't get to go. Now the cat for adoption might be different since that would be money spent now since it's already declawed. Or I can always wait for a rat. Anyone wondering why I'd get a cat and then go on a trip, the trip will probably be a long weekend and my BiL lives with us so he could check on the pet.

Later on today I will be out with my stitchy friends to eat out and stitch in public. Just because we can and to heck with the people who stare at us ;) I will gather my bookmark supplies and start stitching!

Cats are so much easier to leave for a weekend than a dog would be. I hope you don't have to spend very much money to get one.

Our stitching group loves to stitch in public! Last weekend we were outside at the mall from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and stitched all day long!

That's where we went today was the mall food court.

Wouldn't have to spend much to get one but the declaw that hubs wants is most of what we'd have to spend.
