Why Nott Me: March 2007

March 23, 2006

We celebrated our 16th Anniversary. Unbelievable! I can't quite wrap my mind around 16 years. It sure doesn't seem that long. I mean I look back on my 16th birthday. Mind boggling, heck I thought I was old then! Now I know I'm not!

We went out to dinner. We went somewhere that I've been at lunch, but we hadn't been for dinner together. My dinner was the greatest. I got this chicken wrap. I know the name sounds bad (Mo' Fo' Chicken Wrap). It just means that it's HOT! Whew! I love spicey. Hubby ate.. a hamburger. He was quite pleased with it (I mean he got what he expected). He did take a bite of mine (he doesn't like spicey but said it had a good flavor). That was the extent of our celebration. We both enjoyed ourselves at dinner. I guess that's what happens after 16 years!


We went for a short walk looking for mushrooms, didn't find any, but saw these in our trees.
It had been raining. Hubby says "they're drying their wings". Huh. Never saw that before.
They are buzzards or vultures (a real ugly bird). This was way up in the tree by the way. At least 60 ft or so.

Sock News:

I'm ripping it out. can't get the heel to look right. Then I'm going to try one from the top down. I will NOT give up! I just need to find "my" style. Yeah, right and a pattern that doesn't "wrap" stitches. At least, not until I get that figured out!

Last Week
Okay, I'll be the first to say, this daylight savings is for the birds! I have lived most of my life (until last year) with out it. And like NOT changing so much better. I am a morning person and really miss the early morning light. Enough said.

Friday night we went to see the twin nieces (who are only 5yrs old) in the high school production of "The King and I". They did a wonderful job and the play was well done. My sister in law did the choreography for the play. She also teaches at the University.

Our icemaker sprung a leak on Saturday. I knew it was having isssues, but it's not that old and I don't want to have to replace it! I worked this Saturday, not my usual schedule, but they are very short handed. So Sunday is my only day off for three weeks. Crazy.

I've been working on my sock. Hand got the heel completed, but I was NOT at all please with it, so I ripped back to the start of the heel, and I will try it again this week. I'll take a picture when there is more progress.

So today is Sunday, I slept in, hey I was tired.. and the time change didn't help any. So I'm taking it easy today and I'm fixing steaks for dinner tonight.. make me happy. Now I must get back to the laundry and housework that I've been neglecting and beside the hubby is going to be helping (whether he knows it or not).. He's good help, so I really can't complain. The sun is out, so perhaps a walk this afternoon is in order (some fresh air!).

I'm at the heel. I'm doing a short row heel. But if you look closely I purled when I should have knit, so I'm going backwards to get it fixed. I needed a break so I decided to post a sock update!

In other news... We started our city water hook up last night, the outside one,(didn't finish until 10:30), but it was warm outside, 40's. It had been up to 60+ yesterday. So all that's left to do is the hookup (plumbing) inside the house, I have been waiting for this since November! Our well water has an iron it in. We've been doing the shocking thing with chlorine for over 5 years, but it won't go away. It just kept getting worse, and has been to the point that we've not been drinking our water for two years. We've been carrying water from his Mom's house (she lives next door just down the road). I have also been taking our "whites" laundry there to do, because if you wash anything white.. it's slightly orange when it comes out! Did I mention that we do have a softener (which they promised... "it will be the iron out") NO it DOESN'T! Other proof of that would be in the shower. It's orange too and my daily struggle as I spray it with chemicals to try to keep it white! OOOHHHHH I am really looking forward to this city water. Our neighbors don't even have a softner! So mine is going!
It's been a big week. I've also turned in my notice for my part-job! I know I'm working this month, but April is a wait and see. They've been so short handed that I did offer to work thru April. And the may keep me as PRN, which means I might work a day or two a month. So I'd be able to help with vacations over the summer. Time will tell, I'm ready to NOT work every-other weekend. It's gotten old and it servered a purpose when I started out, but is no longer necessary! And besides, I really missing going to church and seeing friends!
