You Are a Gingerbread House

What should I make...

With these two yarns? I'm thinking a small purse out of the black hemp but I have no idea what to make with the Cascade Bulky Leisure. There's only 127 yards of it so it'll have to be fairly small (of course, I could go buy some more...:))

There's 200 yards of the hemp so I think I've got enough of that to make a small purse. I'm now looking for patterns. If you have any ideas on a pattern for either of these yarns, please let me know! They are getting lonely sitting there all unknitted!

Merry Christmas Y'all! I hope it's filled with lots of joy, good friends and good food!

If I get any pics, I'll be sure to post them! :)

Ever feel like you're being watched...?

Nani (black leopard) was staring at me earlier today. It made me kind of nervous...

What mythical creature are you?

You're like a Mermaid!
Take this quiz!

Which mythical creature are you? Take 2...

I couldn't decide between two different answers on two of the questions, so I did it twice. This was the second time. :)

Jaguar Training...

Just thought I'd show off some pics of a jaguar training session...
(Pictures taken by Beth, a friend of mine and a reptile keeper at the zoo..)

(He's actually taking the meat nicely in this one! :))

(Yes, he does roll over on command! :))

(A nice, high target!)

(He's impatient...This is actually something we do not encourage. In fact when I noticed him doing this I turned my back to him. Animals have broken their teeth biting the bars...)

Isn't he an incredibly handsome animal? :)

I have video of it too...As soon as I figure out how, I'll post a clip.

Almost forgot

The pics below can be found at the following websites:




For more just type Daniel Craig as James Bond into Google Images and you will find more than you can count!


I think I'm in love....

with Bond, James Bond (aka Daniel Craig).

I just got back from seeing Casino Royale and let me tell you, it's a great movie! And Daniel Craig looks excellent as James Bond! Don't you agree?

And here's another shot:

And I definitely love the car too!

The movie was a little long (over 2 hours) but it did contain several excellent action shots that are characteristic of the James Bond movies. I forsee me seeing this again! (even if it is just to Daniel Craig!)
