Friday Photo: Chillin'

This is Tilly's cat, Clyde, doing what he does best--chillin'. We can all learn something from him.

This weekend, I'll be helping DD with her college applications. I predict minimal chillin' and maximum wailing and gnashing of teeth, so a trip to the wine store is imminent. Purely for medicinal purposes, of course.

There has been a bit of knitting going on, and it is glorious, even if I do say so myself. I'd show you, but then I'd have to kill you--top secret test-knit stuff. Hopefully, I can reveal it next week. Stay tuned...

Thanks, everybody, for your kind words for my last post. They are much appreciated.


  1. I'd say some wine (for medicinal purposes) sounds like a good plan. :)
    Can't wait to see the sekret knitting project.

  2. be sure to call on me if you need any help - I've spent the past 14 years working in admissions at an Ivy school and read and seen a butt load of college apps! Seriously - if you need pointers - let me know. I can help. You have the right idea with the trip to the liquor store!

  3. I would imagine your prediction of the wine and teeth gnashing are probably spot on. Good luck!

  4. Good luck with the college apps! You survived her learning to drive, surely you can handle a boatload of paperwork. Wine won't hurt, it offsets the whining. Forgive the bad pun.

  5. Tilly's cat looks content not to be filling out college applications.

    When it came to first job applications- I took some of the more common questions and put the answers on a separate sheet ahead of time so that I could just refer to my "application cheat sheet" (Did I almost type cheat shit? I think I did.)

  6. I used to have a red tiger cat in Germany. He was the cutest and looked so much like Clyde. Loved that cat.
    Great medication plans! Good luck with the DD's applications.

  7. Don't mention the war......or in this case college apps. Methinks the wine may be a good idea! Not looking forward to revisiting this situation myself. Good luck!

  8. I want Tilly's cat! Remember, vodka is your friend ;)
