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.

List Day

  • I counted one car at the bar this morning
  • There are 279 days left until the end of the year
  • For some reason, I kept thinking today was Wednesday
  • The vending machine man hates me, last week it was zingers, this week: cherry pies
  • Ate lunch, still hungry. Wonder if the cherry pie is really worth it
  • Crap, dribbled soup down the front of my shirt
  • Stupid hiccups
  • I’ve got pictures to post, just haven’t gotten around to doing it yet

Who Knew

That hemming two pairs of pants would be so frustrating?

A Good Day

Today is knitting and an Ancient Aliens marathon.

It doesn't get any better than this...

List Day

  • I counted two cars at the bar this morning
  • There are 293 days left in the year, or there was a week ago
  • I'd rather be home sleeping
  • According to the wii last night, I gained 3.3 pounds. I think it lies
  • The wind is really blowing out there
  • A real serious time suck
  • Okay, seriously, I need to quit playing that game and get to work
  • (sigh) C++ is a really picky language that doesn't tell you where the error is, it just says there is one...
  • Monday, I deleted some files. Today one of my cow-orkers says I might - MIGHT - be able to get them back
  • WOOT!!! I got my data back. Sure it was missing two weeks, but it's better than five years

Down the street on a rainy afternoon

Finished my socks

Spring is coming...

More Blah

For the past 24 hours, we haven't had internet at the house. (Yes, I paid the bill.) When we got home yesterday, Grilltech called support to get it fixed. Turns out it's a line issue. Hopefully this issue isn't in the house because it can get pricey to fix. Anyway, we have to leave work today at noon to make it home to meet the repair guy. Fun times.

In other news, I'm fighting with a program. Er, I'm fighting to program? I figured out one thing, but now I can't make it do something else. Ick.

I really haven't been knitting. Not much to show on that part. And even if I did have pictures, you couldn't see them, the internet is broken at the house.

Down the street on a rainy afternoon

My first sock, the second one is half finished

Made a practice hat

Changed the hat to a seed stitch and made mittens to match. These are for a teddy bear

Perky made a color wash cloth for me. I made the green one


Last week, I did something to my back and ouch! I didn't do karate because it was achy and sore, but I did do some gentle stretching to try and loose it up. By this week, it was feeling much better. So, I went to karate. Today? I'm sore. Not as bad as last week, but it's sore. Grilltech is being such a sweetheart and putting Bengay on me.

I have finished another set of mitts. This pair is mine and I'm really like them. Where Perky's are busy and the pattern doesn't stand out, mine you see it all. I've also been working on dishcloths, only because I don't have to pay attention to charts. (I'm looking at you, Grilltech's scarf!!)

Time dilation seems to be going on in my bay. It should be closer to 1400, then noon. BLAH. I want the day to be over now!, not in two hours. Not sure why, I want the day over because tonight is house cleaning. woot?
