Better late than never, right?
Here is my stunningly gorgeous sock yarn from To Knit Perchance to Dream. Irises Colourway. Don’t you love it? So perfectly Spring.
I also ordered some of the Midnight Rainbow you see at her site – it should be here any day now.
And here is my first ever Lorna’s Laces – in Sundae – that I purchased over at DeStash.
What I am most looking forward to is knowing exactly how much yarn I have to work with for the 2nd sock.
Here is a picture of Kai. Just ’cause.
Overheard at Work
5 yr old girl: “I don’t drink coffee. I drink tea. Every morning before school I have some Gerbil Green Tea. It’s so good. I love Gerbil Green Tea.”
10 yr old boy on playground: “Those kids seem to have a lot of, I guess you would call it ‘imagination’.” Referring to my group of boys playing a space/war game together. “I don’t think imagination is any good. You just waste your time. Staring at the sky and seeing things that aren’t there.” Yikes hey?
7 yr old girl: “We have an offer on our house. It was only listed for 10 hrs. and it was sold. But there are other interested parties so there could be a bidding war.” Seriously!
6 yr old boy joining in a conversation about the pet food recall: “I-I-I saw that guy. I-I-I was at the factory that night, hiding under a table, aaaaand he didn’t see me. He had a whole cup of poison. Aaaand I saw it. A-a-a-a cupful. Right before he poured it in. Tha-a-at bad guy. Mustache. Glasses. …. I would know him anywhere.”
I’m telling you – you couldn’t make this stuff up! “Mustache. Glasses.” I have been laughing over that all week. If you have read this category before – it’s the same guy that talks about the Kinder Bully with the High School Math homework. He has a tell that he needs to shake before he starts to play poker – he stutters when he lies! But he is so inventive.
Lastly, here is a pic of Mulder checking out the new green in the garden.
Thank you for all your support re: WW’s. The 1st weigh in was a loo-loo! I knew it was high, but apparently our scale is off by 8 lbs. 8 lbs. people!!
The thing I most like about WW’s is that it is not a diet per se. It’s portion control. And boy, oh boy have I become clueless about what constitutes a serving of food. But yeah – if it was a diet I would not be doing well – I don’t manage when I am told “no”. Bit of a toddler thing with me and that word/idea.
