The return of angry cat and other miscellany

In an effort to talk about things other than my expanding waistline (yes, I'll talk about that, too), I've tried to think of what else is going on around Chez Schondy, and I have to just confess that there's not a lot. We're both working too much (as usual), and life continues its usual course, though at the moment we have a house guest.

Jayne, four-legged fuzzy child of Sapphire and Xippy, is staying with us while they're off supervising the high school graduation of Xippy's brother. Jayne is still, even after 2 pervious visits, convinced that she's going to lose her hide while she's asleep. We keep telling her that we've had many opportunities and haven't taken advantage of it yet, but she continues to howl in the middle of the night in hopes of being rescued from this awful place. So we call her "Angry Cat" and she says she hates us. But after 6 days, she's decided that maybe we're not entirely evil and we've even caught her playing with Deliah, but mostly only when she thinks we're not watching.

This weekend is the A La Carte and Art Festival in Mountain View. It's a great place for birthday and holiday shopping because all the vendors are local artists, so everything is one of a kind and unique, which always makes me happy.

Next weekend is the Bay Area Maker Faire and Schondy and I are planning to go. It's also pretty awesome. We usually end up going both days because there's just no way to see the whole thing in one day. When we started going a few years ago, there were lots of people, but it wasn't really that bad. Now, though, it's gotten so big that the crowds are CRAZY, so we try to go early, before the hoards descend.

Anyway, for those of you who are in to such things, we'd love to have to you come visit and go festival hopping with us next year. :)

And now for the pictures, which I'm posting at the <ahem> gentle suggestion of my Mom. (Hi, Mom!) This week appears to be when my little passenger has decided to make his/her presence visible to people other than me. Went to the doctor yesterday and heard the heartbeat, but otherwise, it was the quickest appointment ever. And that's really all I have to report on that front.
