My new baby

Hello out there in blogland.

I have been a busy little beaver and am at work working hard as usual and I really haven't had time to post. So here is a quick update.

I have a new baby. Her name is Precious and likes to be called Cole Haan. I love her dearly. I rescued her this weekend and I am loving her already. I am thinking about going to get her sister this weekend in a darker brown, but she was helluva expensive and I don't know if I can afford her too. Here is a picture of Precious



Even if she doesn't become a twin, she has a lot of other sister's that I love just as fondly.

Okay, the last time I posted, I said I wanted to find a good read since I finished Walter Mosley and probably start to read a classic. Well, I was bored and since the new Potter book is about to start, I figured I would re-read the last Harry. You know this time around, it seems to be better. Maybe, it is because I am not racing to be finished. I am savouring it and loving it. Here's a little something I found in Harry that I wanted to share:

Slughorn asked Dumbledore why he was taking so long in the bathroom, was his stomach upset and Dumbledore stated:

"No, I was merely reading the Muggle magazines, said Dumbledore. I do love knitting patterns." isn't that the cutest thing!!!

Maybe not, but I am a Potter head, so it's whatever!!! Okay one more, when Dumbledore went to the home to pick Harry up and he was talking to the Uncle.

"I don't mean to be rude - " he (the uncle) began, in a tone that threatened rudeness in every syllable.

"yet, sadly, accidental rudeness occurs alarmingly often, Dumbledore finished the sentence gravely. "Best to say nothing at all, my dear man."

DDDDAAANNNGGG!!! he got straight carried (I know that is an old term). Anyway, I just had to write this because so many people make excuses for being rude and there just isn't any (is there, well).

Okay, just in case I don't post again, have a nice restful weekend and Memorial Day.

Your comment on my latest FO made me smile!! Thanks, so much, and I hope you make that step to learn to crochet, because there are so many cute summer lacy tops and bolero patterns.

Happy Belated Birthday!!

LOL @ Baby Precious!! Too funny! I will be posting about my new baby soon! Waiting with baited breathe for it in the mail!

I have always wanted a Cole Haan but can't seem to swing it at this time! ;o)

I am going to have to use this one ""Best to say nothing at all" HA! That would shut somebody up!

Good to meet you! Hey what is your e-mail addy so we can chat it up a bit? I see you are in nonprofit...so am I.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I just LOVE that line from HP - and you're smart to go back through for a re-read, 2nd time around is great with a good book.

Thanks for the knit love on my CPH - I'm happy to cheer you on to finishing one too!
