Birthday Weekend Wrap Up
Hello faithful readers, it is I, the faithless blogger. More like lazy. I haven’t been cheating on you; I just haven’t been paying attention to you.
As you know (thanks Brooke!) my birthday was this past weekend. I had a fantastic birthday. We won’t discuss which birthday it was. Here are the highlights:
- My parents came to visit
- James took me to see Chicago the musical
- Brooke wrote me a wonderful poem
- I learned how to make a pot roast
- My parents delivered my bread maker
- Mom and Dad gave me a bunch of soap making “stuff”
- Amy gave me a bunch of yarn and a slow cooker cookbook
- James parents gave me “Yarn Harlot: The Secret Life of a Knitter”
- Sally caught a mole
On the knitting front: the dog toys were a complete success. The felted ball is officially Sally’s favorite everyday toy. They actually ended up more egg-shaped than round, but Sally couldn’t care less. I forgot to mention that I used the pattern developed by Eve Clevenger.
And I’ve been working on the Isis Wrap! I was totally pissed off that I had to tink back 4 rows but I persevered and I’m finally back on track. It took my four days to correct the mistake, but doggoneit! I did it. I’m estimated that I have about 20 rows to go and then I begin assembling!
On the strange dream front: apparently my subconscious blames one of my college professors for the fact that I hate my chosen profession. In my dream she was the devil and I had to kill her. She had crazy Diana Ross hair and tiny black eyes. Joy made an appearance in the dream. She was busy planning a party and didn’t seem to think that killing the professor was the best course of action. (An interesting side note: Joy asked me where Jason was and I very carefully explained when I dream about Jason and when I don’t and that he wouldn’t be making an appearance.)
Next Week: The Finished Isis Wrap! (IhopeIhopeIhopeIhope)
