It was a good weekend. I left work early on Friday. Went and saved Perky from the car dealer. Wondered around Barnes and Noble looking at books. I found about six or so that I'm interesting in getting. Yes, I know... but I prefer my iPad to an actual book.

I spent most of the weekend working on the forever blanket. Not quite half way done with my row. No rush. Perky has claimed it.

Today isn't bad, I've just got a headache that is light sensitive. On the plus side, my sunglasses are done. Maybe that will help my head.

Have a good week, we're 1/5 done.

List Day

  • Gas is at $2.29 per gallon
  • I counted two cars at the coffee shop
  • I left my knitting at home today
  • Turns out my phone was left in the car for 24 hours yesterday, I'm just glad it was found
  • Trying to figure out if I want to add another two rows on the blanket (for a total of four square to complete a series) or just go with the two
  • Cow-orker brought in doughnuts. I've had one. Why do I have an urge to go get another?
  • It's trying to snow out there. Really?
  • Have a good evening. I'm off to knit


Last night I finished my row. YEAAAAAA!!!! I started the next one, so I'm ahead of the game.

Today? I'm not so with it. I gathered all my stuff drove to work and while unpacking I realized I left my phone at home. My phone which is also my wallet. So no timer for me. (I'll need to find one on-line.) We'll have to run home before dinner with the parents tonight. It's just going to throw my whole day off.

Guess I wasn't as together as I thought, because I realized I left Dad's present at home also. Is it too late to call in sick?

It started snowing on the drive in to work. I'm hoping it's not a serious storm, but something that spits at us for a little while, then goes away. It appears, I didn't get my wish, just overhead someone saying we got two inches in the last 30 minutes. I'm so over this winter.

Grilltech and Baby Bird have started playing Fallout 4. (Grilltech plays, she watches and helps him by pointing out stuff.) She'd rather watch him play Fallout, then play Mario with Perky and I. So, we let her go.

Last night, Perky made a chocolate fondue. It was pretty oily. I'm thinking maybe she added too much chocolate.

I spent most of the weekend working on the blanket and finished eighteen squares. I'm only two valleys away from finishing my row - three squares per valley. I even managed to make a pair of slippers while working on the forever thing.

I'm off to knit a square.

List Day

  • Happy Friday!
  • Gas is at $2.29 per gallon
  • There was two cars at the coffee shop this morning
  • I have to make cookies tonight or tomorrow, I'm leaning more towards tomorrow
  • Dad's birthday is next week, so I'm making him a new pair of slippers
  • It's a slow day. I like slow days. Maybe slow isn't the right word, quiet is better
  • Have a good weekend


It's supposed to snow or freezing rain here and we're waiting. I'm just hoping it doesn't start on the drive home, that would really suck.

I've been working on my blanket. I'm about half way done with a row. I'd show you pictures, but there is no point, it looks the same. My forever blanket.

Friday night went pretty much as expected. They broke in, knocked everyone out. Then one of the players killed one of the NPCs. So they voted and ended up killing everyone. After they went through all that work of just knocking them out. I'm trying to decide where to send them next. I've about about four or five half baked ideas that need to be flushed out. In the mean time, I've got a bunch of magic items I need to figure out what they do.

Well, the snow finally made it. Right when it's time for me to go home. Thanks Mother Nature.

In the Air Tonight

Tonight is game night. I'm not sure what they're planning on doing, but I've got to ready for it.

At this point, I understand the plan to be,
  • Hack into the lawn care place and cancel Thursday's appointment
  • Hijack the truck and show up at the place and gather intel
  • Possibly break into the house, because hey, kick the door open and shoot everyone who moves

I can't think of anything else I'll need to be ready to answer.

List Day

  • Gas is up to $2.33 per gallon, I don't like this upward trend
  • There was no cars at the coffee shop this morning
  • Seriously, you're going to sit there and bitch about something not working, but not make the effort to contact the person who can fix it?
  • You've got the headset on, just answer the phone. Don't make someone else do it
  • Great, Fire Fox is locked up. It must be lunch time
  • Why did you hang up on me when I answered the phone?
  • Getting tired of having to email people to do their job
  • Do you know how hard it is to try and figure out a name of a colorway without the label handy
  • It's suppose to be clear until Sunday. I like that
  • Have a good evening


Last night Grilltech, Eldest, Kommadant, and I was breaking ice out the drive way. An hour later, we have bare concrete. It was totally worth the sore arms and leg cramps.

This morning, I woke up about 0230 and it's snowing. >.< So instead of hitting snooze for 30 minutes at 0400, I got up after the first snooze and got ready to face the day. Then Grilltech and I went and shoveled the drive way. We're both sore from yesterday's marathon shoveling. Great there is a weather advisory until Wednesday. I'm so ready for winter to be over.

Down the street on a snowy Sunday afternoon. Then it turned to rain. It was a sheet of ice this morning.

The inside of the sweater. Someone asked to see it. The sweater itself is knit flat.

Perky's mitts, now finished. I knit two left gloves. I had to rip back and fix it so there was a right and left glove.


It's cold out there. With all the snow we have, of course it's going to be cold. I'm thinking of shoveling out the road in front of my driveway so I don't get stuck, trying to get out (or in).

I've got about another two inches to go on the mitts before I'm done with them. I hope to have them finished this weekend. Sunday at the latest.


Grilltech has a cold, which means in two or three days, I'll have a cold. I think I liked it better, when we had less people in the house. Well, I can't blame the kids for this one. I'm not sure where he picked it up at.

This morning we woke to two or three inches of snow. News was saying expect three to six inches today. I'm wondering if it's on top of what's already fallen. The roads are a mess. I'm dreading the drive home tonight.

Running Behind

It's back to work today. I had a lovely four day weekend. A nice way to ring in the New Year. We played board games until midnight, then Perky and I went home to curl up in bed. While gaming, I was also knitting. Finished up a dish cloth and finished a thumb gusset on Perky's mitts. By the time midnight rolled around, I was out of knitting.

I need to finish the mitts, so I can start working on the mitered blanket again. It will keep me warm this winter, so I need to get going on it again.

We've been playing Super Mario for the Wii U. It's slightly different then the Wii one. I guess that's why people keep buying it. I've also started reading again. Which really cuts into the knitting time, but you know opportunity costs.

Not a whole lot to talk about, but it's better then nothing. Have a wonderful New Year.
