Shh

Don't show Grilltech, what I found because he'll want them. Really, who am I kidding, he has most likely already seen them.

Weekend Recap

This weekend was a bit on the busy side. Friday night was game night. Two of the member's couldn't make it, but we soldiered on without them.

Saturday a friend came over to do some beading. I made a bracelet, while she re-string her lanyard holder. It turned out pretty good, it looks the same as the old one. Grilltech mowed the lawn. After she left, I made potato salad for Easter dinner.

Sunday Perky, Kommand, and DJ came over for dinner. Ham and potato salad. Perky made deviled eggs. After dinner, the guys played Red Dragon Inn, a cute game that's fairly quick to play. I managed to knit about six rows on my sweater. Not a lot, but every row counts.

Chasing Clouds

While waiting for the meeting to start, I was looking out the window at the clouds. There was one that looked like an elephant. Now one looks like a rocket ship, the ones from Bugs Bunny. It's been a while since I've decided what clouds looked like. I'm sure it would be even better watching from a blanket in the park, but being at work has its own advantages. Now one of the clouds looks like an alligator floating in river. The snout could be a bit longer, but close enough.

List Day

  • I counted two cars at the bar this morning
  • For some reason I keep wishing today was Friday
  • (eyeroll) You know this crap, why do I have to remind you?
  • Day is mostly over. Mostly
  • Yea, wish I was more excited

MIA


I missed last night's lunar eclipse. It was overcast as well, so I don't feel so bad about missing it.

There is a pair of crows looking for small sticks for their nest outside in the courtyard. They've driven off a pair of nesting doves, who did have a nest right next to the window.

I'm trying the no soda thing, instead, I've been drinking iced tea in the morning. Today I just want to put my head on the desk and sleep. I'm pretty sure I'd feel the same way if I had a soda.

Perky is needing dish cloths. I'm glad they have homes, because I'm knitting them with no destination in mind.

The crow is back, looking for more sticks. It's kinda freaky to see the tree shaking and no other trees are moving.

Pair of socks for Grilltech. I haven't done much with them since this picture.


A now finished dish cloth.


My fingerless mitts for the Olympics.


Side one of my blanket, I've switched to larger squares to help make the knitting go faster.


Side two of the blanket.


We had a hail storm in March. Pretty sweet.

Who Knew

That hemming two pairs of pants would be so frustrating?
