I've spent the last week in San Diego. All in all, it wasn't a bad stay. I worked from 0800 to 1600 - 1630, so I didn't have time to do much of anything exciting. I was down town, so I was right next to the coast. I walked down to the shipyard and took a couple of pictures for Grilltech. He really liked them, if I was at home, I'd post a couple.

Today I drove up to Ventura, that was a nightmare. The freeway is suppose to go, but there was places we stopped for a while. Google maps said three hours, it took five. Now I'm trying to decide if I want to do laundry tonight or wait until tomorrow. Not sure I want to commit to two hours of waiting around. Sure it's prime knitting time, but still.

Tomorrow I'm going to kick around. Drive to the base and see if I can find the place I'm looking for. There is a yarn store I want to stop by. And laundry. I'll be partying like a queen.

Taxes are down done, owed the feds and the state owed us. I guess it worked out in the end. It only took an hour and two glasses of cider.

Down the street on a cool spring day.

Grilltech took me on vacation to Florida. While there, he was sweet enough to take me to a yarn store. This is the yarn I picked up to celebrate the trip.

These are Grilltech's vacation socks. I started them on the 16th and finished them on the 22nd. There are lots of Facebook posts of the sock doing fun things. And not so fun things like waiting at the airport.

There are my socks that I finished before the trip.


On Sunday we played our second to the last game of Pandemic. If you look close, you'll notice there are no other cubes on the board, only faded. That's right, we sun setted all other diseases. Go us!

Down the street on a cloudy winter day. Sure, spring is twelve days away and it's nice out there, I've gotta go with the "official" season.

Finished Grilltech's socks. Training really helped my knitting time. You can't really tell, but there is a rope cable down the side. It really doesn't show up at all.

These will be my socks. Color way is called Goth Valentine. Not sure what pattern I want to knit. I'm thinking XO pattern.
