Still January?

Except for the fact that it is dark when I get up, and dark before dinner, you would never believe it is January.  Our weather has been... bipolar, or at least seriously disturbed.  Little or no snow (maybe 3 inches, which melted within two days), largely warm (I think between 45 and 60 is warm for winter, don't you?), and quite rainy.  Not the norm, really.
But January it is, and I am feeling the holiday rebound.  Despite the fact that we kept the holidays pretty simple, I still spent the first two weeks of January feeling like I was recovering.  But things are slowly looking up, and i think I am up for Rachel's birthday party at the end of the week.  She's inviting a dozen friends for pizza and movies.  Given that we survived a previous invasion, we should be ok.  But it is time to firebomb the house and get it actually cleaned up.

So since I have so little to actually entertain you with, I give you amusing pictures:

Turns out, if you're cleaning out a cabinet and leave a cat-sized space, you get a cat.

Reliably - he had to make a pretty good jump to make this one.  Yes, Rachel is standing, so he jumped almost 5 feet.

And finally, yarn porn.  I actually spent some of the weekend updating my stash on Ravelry. And it looked naked without pictures, so I took and uploaded pictures.  Not done yet, but did a good chunk.

Pretty, isn't it? It's Mirasol Yarn "Hacho", DK weight, and I have 7 skeins because my favorite LYS (which is sadly, an hour away) had a huge inventory cleanout. I went through and everything that I could find multiple skeins of the same dye lot, I bought.

But I need some ideas. I have 959 yds.

That is not a cat-sized space. It is only a cat-sized space in the eyes of the cat.
