Everything's a toy!

To Ruse and Audace, everything is a potential toy! Ruse especially enjoys the box that my new wireless mouse and keyboard came in! It's shaped just right. (Audace has tried it out, but he's a bit too big ... funny boy!)

I've stayed away from crocheting anything because of these guys. A couple of years ago, I started to make a new afghan, but the battle with the yarn-chasers was just too much, so I put it all away. Then recently, I was asked to start crocheting little hats for elementary school kids. I thought, "Why not? These are smaller projects and surely the cats wouldn't have much access to too much yarn." Well ... that went OK for a couple of weeks, but today, after I had been gone for about two hours, I came home to find the following!!

See the culprit - Audace! - posing as innocent as you please, in the doorway, as if he had just been a spectator! I laughed and laughed ... and then took photos!

Happy New Year to everyone!

Happy New Year
all of you
all of us!
Grace is demonstrating
how we are spending our day ...
... snoozing and resting
after all our vigilance last night
as neighbors all around us
shot off fireworks until after midnight.
Whew! We are tired!!

Happy 2010!
