Come have Coffee with me!

Well, hello! How nice to meet you. My name is Faith. Joan's not home right now, but come on in! I'd love to have some company. Me? Oh, I've been sent to bring a smile to Joan's heart by a very generous blogger friend, Niki, from Pumpkin Country. I arrived two days ago (in the middle of all the flu hub-bub that went on around here). Oh, I was so glad to get out of that box! Trust me, it's no way to travel! Just look at my hair! Joan has gone off to IKEA for a few hours - she SAID she was going to do Christmas shopping, but I think it's more to do with the fact that she found IKEA has fabric on sale. Sssshhh.. don't tell. She keeps saying she's NOT going to buy more fabric. I've only been living here for two days and I know I've heard her say it at least two times! So come on in, sit down, get comfy. Would you like some coffee? Do you mind if I sit in Brayden's old high chair? (He's moved on to a regular chair now -- he's getting so big!) Gives me a better view from here -- plus I don't spill coffee on my pretty dress. My goodness, it's cold here in Ohio, isn't it? I saw some snowflakes yesterday. I forgot to bring my coat and warm clothes with me, but Joan has told me that I'm welcome to use any of her fabric and her sewing machine to make what I need. I do love to sew, don't you? Right now I'm just working on a little quilt to cuddle under when we watch TV. Pffffft... darn hair -- do you have a bobby pin? Well, if you don't mind, I did promise Joan I'd help out with a little housework while she was gone. Actually, I was just being nice and casually said, "Is there anything I can do to help out while you're gone?" And (harumph) what did she do? Made me a To Do List! I wasn't quite expecting that, but I guess I can get it all done. Do you mind if I work while we talk? I need to fold these clothes to start. And clean up the breakfast dishes.... Well, that's enough for now. I can do the dusting, vac the family room, scrub the kitchen floor and clean the bathrooms after you go. I'd rather visit. Let's go sit in the family room! What? The books on the table? Oh no!!!! Don't look at those. Those are a surprise for an upcoming blog giveaway!. No one is supposed to see them! Please don't look -- I was just looking through them while I drank my coffee. Please don't tell anyone you saw them! And speaking of Giveaways, Joan showed me a Giveaway for another girl almost like me! I'd love to have a friend (someone I can share this @(#$*&( To Do List with!), so enter for me, would you? It's on the Spun by Me blog for her 100th post! I think we could be great friends! Oh my, we'd better head into the family room, OK? Bring your coffee, get comfy. It's warmer in here, isn't it? I just can't get used to this cold weather. Joan knit some sweet mittens and socks for Brayden, and I was rather hoping they'd fit me, but I'm afraid they are too big. Oh, one of the things on my To Do List is to help Joan knit these socks. They're a Christmas present for someone special (but I can't say who!). Let's see -- Knit 3, Purl 1... I think I can do this. Awww, you have to go already? Let me walk you out to the door. I'll show you something funny on our way out -- here on the stairs. See this kitty sleeping in the basket on the stairs? It took me the longest time to get up the nerve to find out why this cat sleeps all the time. When I finally reached over to pet him, I found out he's a ROCK! I thought he would bite me (Joey the Killer cat does -- I have to hide when he's in the house) but he just lays there and looks cute! Jeff's sister Sandra painted him years and years ago and he's been on the stairs ever since. Now that's my kind of cat! Well, it was so nice to meet you and I will tell Joan you were here. I'd walk you out, but it's just too cold to go out without a coat. Maybe by the next time you stop by I'll have sewn a coat for myself... if I can ever get done with that darn To Do List that is... Bye bye now! See you next time!
