Meet my new friend Boots. Last Saturday Boots showed up at Seth's house. He gave it some cat treats and some petting. Sunday Boots was there. Seth's cousins came over for dinner and Tom said it was a girl. Seth's parents kept saying "don't feed it!" They weren't so much in the market for a cat. Monday Seth came home from work and they'd built the cat a house and put out a saucer of milk. At this point they named her "Boots". Seth went out and bought cat food. By Wednesday night when the weather turned really cold for central Georgia, they decided she needed to sleep in the old storage building. They rigged up a litterbox.
Seth asked me to come to Pine Mountain this morning to help him take Boots to the vet. We waited in the lobby and one mean dog and one nice dog. Boots was not happy about any of this. We finally went back to see the vet. She walked in and took one look and said, "We have a neutered male." What?!? Obviously Tom was wrong. Boots was loving on all of us and the vet the whole time we were talking. Then she took HIM to the back to weigh him and give him some medicine. He wasn't as loving to the vet when she brought him back out. He's a great cat. Very sweet. Smart. Seth and I went to lunch with Mr. Ray (his dad) after the vet visit. Mr. Ray said he'd been thinking about a way to build Boots his own house area. (The storage building is not a permanent solution.) Yes, that man who, one week ago, didn't want to feed the stray that had taken up with them, now is planning construction projects to give the cat a better life. Too funny. Seth wrote about Boots over on his blog, too.
This is my 365 picture for today:

Here's yesterday picture that I didn't get blogged, but wanted to share just because I liked it. This church is on the corner where I turn going to work.
I laid around all day today in my pajamas. I don't know why I've been so tired, but every now and them you (at least, I) need a day like that.

So, are you wondering why I've become such a prolific blogger all of a sudden? Well, I'm doing this flickr project where you take a photo every day and post it to flickr. There's also a group for ravelry members who are taking pictures everyday. Here are the photos I've taken so far. I'm also in a group where I take one mostly pink photo each week. (There's a 365 option, but 365 of pink is a lot of pressure.) Those pink shoes I put up on Tuesday went into that group. I can't promise that I'll post my photos here everyday. I may have some I don't want to bore you with.

As for the Gator Bowl, I don't want to talk about it.

That's Toto the Extremely Useful and Cute Potholder from Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines. It was a fun little portable project. That's Sugar & Cream yarn by Lily. It's knitted double stranded fair isle style to make it thick and heat resistant. It uses an i-cord bind-off to create the lovely green ridge around the bottom. It also features a three needle bind-off to attach the two pockets to each other. This baby packs a skill building punch into one tiny (but extremely useful and cute) package.
