Put a stamp on it

Put a stamp on it

Sometimes, you just need to send a letter.

Dearest Airborne Antigens,

It is almost July and you have long over stayed your visit. Surely there are greener pastures that are in dire need of your pollen.

Please find them and soon!


My itchy, watery eyes and runny nose

My Dear Backyard Wildlife,

If I consider the Portulaca an offering, could you please stop eating the Rapini and Romanescu?

Because, if you continue to eat them, along with the strawberries and raspberries it will not end well.

I will consider your continued munching a declaration of war.

You have been warned.


The Irate Gardener

Hello Starbucks,

Enough with the daily emails about the latest star incentives. This will not encourage me to visit you more frequently.

In fact, it is having the opposite effect. Please stop punishing me because you changed your reward program.


No Stars For Me

Attention Local Weather Persons,

How hard can it possibly be to give an accurate weather forecast? Perhaps you should try looking out the window, perhaps that approach will prove more successful because the current methods are not. At. All.


Weather Confused

Dear, Sweet Friday,

You are here and gone far too quickly, and it would be so lovely if you surprised me and started arriving earlier than scheduled.

I miss you so much and wish that you could find a way to visit more often and stay longer.


Your Girl, Friday.

If only these letters would work…

Happy Thursday, Gentle Reader.

Hitting the Jackpot

Hitting the Jackpot


You can’t expect to hit the jackpot if you don’t put a few nickels in the machine.” – Flip Wilson

Carole was off in Vegas doing a bit of celebrating this past weekend and because of that, I think this is the perfect 10 on Tuesday! I sure hope they were doing lots of shouting over the weekend!

Ten Things to Shout When You Hit the Jackpot:

  1. What?!?!
  2. NO WAY!!!
  3. OMG
  5. We’re in the money!
  6. I can’t believe it!
  7. Yipppeeeeeee!
  9. Wait, what?
  10. I have to pay how much in taxes???!!!???

Chances are very good that I will never shout any of these ten items because in order to win a jackpot I have to put some nickels in the machine, which I don’t do with any regularity.

That got me thinking about other ways to hit the jackpot and I think a non-gamblers jackpot list is a thing… isn’t it?

So here is my Non-Gambler’s Jackpot list:

  1. All of your kids graduating from college AND finding jobs
  2. The birth of your first grandchild
  3. Noticing that you have lost weight and you have not been dieting
  4. Groceries that miraculously pro-create in your cupboard eliminating the need to ever return to the grocery store
  5. Self-folding laundry
  6. The discovery of a Pug that does not shed
  7. Teleportation is a reality
  8. Deciding that you do not have insomnia, but really only need two hours of sleep at night
  9. Being able to do your hair EXACTLY as your stylist did – Every. Single. Time! (See Saturday’s post!)
  10. Getting gauge on the gauge swatch on the first try

Now this list would be hitting the jackpot indeed!

Happy Ten on Tuesday!


Strange fascination, fascinating me
Changes are taking the pace I’m going through – David Bowie

One needs some change when it has almost been a year since any regular posts!

So, I began to nag StevoFC about doing some remodeling here…

At long last the paint is dry, new pictures have been hung, and As Kat Knits has a new look!

Thank you StevoFC!! I think it looks great!

Now the only thing left is for me to find my writing mojo…

Stay tuned, gentle reader.


The Kat's Out of the Bag…

“Always end the name of your child with a vowel, so that when you yell the name will carry.” Bill Cosby

Apparently, being bodacious began for me at a very early age, because Bill Cosby’s quote fit perfectly for my growing up years!

Either that or I had that common hearing condition which plagues most children… I am sure you know it, the dreaded Selective Hearing Syndrome.

Why the name topic, you ask? Well, my Bodacious and Fearless Leader has put the task before her minions to talk about what is in a name, namely my name!

Why were you given your name?

This is an easy one, I was named after my mother, who was named after a relative (not her mother, but rather a beloved aunt), and I in turn did likewise with my first born. We all share Kathryn in our name.
