Evangeline's Journey: Episode 7

Day 159: Tree Frog?!?

Good morning, everyone! For some silly reason this morning I got up way before the alarm clock -must have slept better than I thought- so I thought I would let you see how things are going in the tree business. ;-) Sotospeak...

Anyway, above you will see that Evangeline's tree is coming along nicely. However... As I was nearing the top yesterday I noticed that something wasn't lining up right. Check, check, check, check, check, check some more and then AHA there it is!!! (click link to look at Diagram of a Frog). Needless to say, that was the L O N G E S T search mission that I have been on in a long time. And not only that, I had to make the decision to frog out all that I had done, or just surgically remove the offending stitches and start over. Well, upon closer examination I decided that surgery was the best option. I have since gotten it all straightened out and it is looking pretty good. Methinks that the tree should be done by the end of the day today. Photos of the completed tree to follow once the tree is completed.

In other, funnier news: I have been taking Valerian Root to help me sleep better at night. I'll let Wikipedia tell you the specifics. Well let me tell you, this stuff works great and stinks greater! WOOF and then some, believe you me.

Anyway... last night I was getting ready to take my nightly dose and Jessie decided that she was curious about it. So, me being the ornery type that I am, I let her sniff the bottle. Needless to say, it lead to some very funny results:

Think of the funniest sight of a cat snorting catnip, and you will get the idea... ;-) Kim couldn't believe it when I told her how Jessie was reacting... until she saw it with her own eyes! We had lots of fun at Jessie's expense before bedtime last night...

Okay, enough fun for now. I need to head out to work so I can get there on time. Chat with you all later and have a good day!

I have taken valerian root and it DOES stink! The pic of the cat is a riot! Think you about knocked poor kitty out! LOL!
Sorry about your surgery needs! LOL! isn't that frustrating when you can't find the offending bit?
Well, surgery was the obvious choice.... I've seen an update (later) on Kim's blog and you ARE doing a great job with the lady, Greg!
I guess I should try that catnip thing with my cats. May be pour some on Luna and see if Phoebe finally accepts her instead of growling and yelling at her constantly? Lol!!!
Greg, Great work on Evangeline's Journey and keep up the good work. I've added you to my blog roll so I can keep up with your progress.
