Figure I'd better get a post in before the end of the month. Today is my last day. So, I'd better get on it.

It's been hot. So knitting has been very hit or miss. Even the three strands of cotton become tacky with sweat after a while. Even knitting socks at work under the air conditioner is hard.

I think I'd like to do some Viking knitting

because I need to know how to finish

List Day

  • Counted eight cars at the bar this afternoon
  • I'm working swings this week, so it's a totally different feel to work
  • Today is my Friday!
  • Yes, I wore the shirt twice. It looks like a broken string
  • Hate walking to the car late at night, I'm worried Big Foot might jump out and grab me
  • However, I do love how quiet it gets about 1700
  • I don't know about anyone else, but I get a kick out of watching Ravelry's Radar
  • Someone has a bird chirping as his text notification

Down this street in the morning:

Instead of working on dishcloths, I've been making bathmats.

Another bathmat in process.

Another pair of clogs, waiting to be felted.

I swear, this shirt is cursed. I don't know how I'm going to fix that hole. Any suggestions?

GoJira looking around out front.

The Big Red One

Really? REALLY?! If I was in my twenties, I'd so be taking a shot at a trip to Mars. Maybe if I start getting in shape now, they'd take an older, wiser person.

List Day

I'm not a French Templar so Friday the 13th doesn't really bother me. However, when the universe starts on the smack down, it might be a good idea to lay low. Why?
  • I could. Not. Sleep. Last. Night.
  • I shut the alarm off, good thing Grilltech woke up at 0450, otherwise we'd still be in bed
  • Checked my email at work first thing, the skilling script is broken
  • I left my iPad AND knitting at home, so I don't have anything to do during lunch today
  • I've got a song rattling around in my head
  • Our lackey isn't working out and will be returning to her own area
  • The batteries on my fan are DOA
  • Asked a supervisor about having an agent work with us, turns out that agent had been termed last month and I was asking the wrong supervisor about someone else
  • When running reports, it's a good idea to change the date, otherwise the four I just ran would be useless
  • Yes, I've got to run those four reports again
  • I couldn't get HG to go punch Gnome in the head, and I really did try.... repeatedly
  • The store was crowded and had stupid people shopping in them
  • I'm going to bed early tonight

Down the street on a hot smokey day:

Perky finished a blanket for a friend:

Finished buttercup:

I went with linen to help finish up the shirt:


Last night, Uggy brought me dinner in bed. A moth. Guess she felt she could one up Fran.

Down the street on a hot summer day.

Tunic almost finished. I need to rip back the lace on the sleeves and add the orange there.

Grilltech's brisket:

BBQer's pulled:

BBQer's ribs:

BBQer's chicken (took eighth place):

Fran making sure I took the pictures correctly.

It's a good thing that Fran was sleeping in the house the other night. She saved us from ninja toilet paper. It was coming to kill us in our sleep.
