Dead in the Water and doggie caca

Well, actually, quite busy, but, not with weaving.  Hitting the road tomorrow for a few days in Florida...heads up to the pet-sitter: enjoy the satellite tv etc.   Make yourself at home!
I did order some more reference materials.  This means that, shortly, a bunch of my older and duplicate items will appear either on ebay or a "heads-up" note on weaving sites I visit.
Cats have a brand-new, fancy-schmanzy litter-box, and some "gourmet" grain-free foods.  Karlie seems to be thriving on the grain-free regimen.
SOOOO, a whole lotta knitting will be going on this week, while visiting.  Got my summer tunic jumper to finish.  Have put away the "Noro Ayatori" sweater since I realised that Summer had arrived ahead of my flying fingers, but just the sleeves to do.  When I get a whiff of Autumn in the air, will pull that out again, along with the cardigan that lacks a button-band and get back to the warm-cozies.  As it is, I should have concentrated on the Summer jumper.
Oh well, picked up light tees at Wallyworld.
Packing snacks for the road, as well as "real food."  Strafed "Earthfare" yesterday for healthy stuff and am going to turn out some deviled eggs for my lunch-stop.  Also packing doggie treats for my road-buddies, Daisy and Howie...also got them new name-tags.  The rest will be "sat," so they can drive somebody else nuts for a few days.  Thankfully, the sitters don't mind cleaning up the "fallout." When "Mom" gets back, we are going to retry crate-training.  I've had about all I can take.  Why Teddy and Daisy have it figured out, and the others don't, is beyond me.  Cedric is sort of hit-and-miss.  Whenever he gets himself off the bed and outside, I praise him extravagantly.  Dogs respond better to positive than negative, altho "no-no" gets through to them.  Teddy has gotten SOOO good at "bring it" and "Drop it!"  Again, extravagent praise.
