Why Nott Me: March 2008

Rain.. it started Monday night.. it's still raining.
Water, water everywhere.. pictures, I need to take pictures..

I took today off. I have "things" to do.

  • laundry, check working on that.
  • put away clean dishes
  • clean out fish tank
  • sneak sewing in here
  • sweep living room
  • clean both bathrooms
  • sneak in knitting

Today is all about me. I don't feel "organized" at home. And I hate that feeling. Also I wanted to get a jump start for the weekend. We're having company.

Work is stressful right now and it's going to get worse.. a person that I "backup" is going on vacation. That's on top of my job.. and my job at the moment is BUSY. So I decided to take a day off before it all hits. I'll be fine, it's just the anticipation of it all.

Spring.. it is here? I took this pictures yesterday evening.
It looks to me like the daffodils will be out for Easter. It's very early this year. Our weather is beginnging to be wamer.

Knitting news

My parents got me this for Christmas.. we (Mom & me) actually didn't order it until February.. because a few things that I wanted were backordered.. then cancelled.. So I decided on this yarn for a sweater.. sorry I still haven't figured out how to link.. :(And in February.. a new yarn shop In A Yarn Basket open in the town that I work (it has a website, same name). So I bought this yarn for me a new pair of socks.. I was going along yesterday when I realized (by counting) that I had dropped a stitch.. guess where I found it?

I marked it with the needle.. see? I'm going to try to "carry" it up with a crochet hook, it that doesn't work.. I'll have to go backwards :(, but I'm determined not to do that.. so we'll see. I thought this yarn was interesting it's made from corn.. my Dad is a farmer. Way cool.

We’re getting snow with lots of wind. It’s cold. I was hoping to walk outside this weekend. I don’t think so. It was in the 50’s last weekend. Tonight’s low is 17F. And it didn’t get above freezing today. So I’ll get on the treadmill, boring. But I’ll still do it. Bought a new DVD, walk away the pounds. I’ve got one but was getting bored with it.

Hubby went caving/camping in this crazy weather. Guys do dumb things (my take on it) And I get a weekend with no one to cook for but myself, that way I can get lots of things done that I want to do. I’m going to take pictures too! I’ve got new yarn that I need to show. New is good.

put away clean dishes
load dish washer
laundry – fold towels
laundry – wash bed sheets
laundry – wash bathroom rugs
clean our bedroom
pick up living (mostly my knitting)
sweep the living room
mop the kitchen floor
clean the fish tank
make sure I have everything ready for taxes (yuck)

What I really rather be doing –I don’t think there are enough hours in my weekend for all of this.. but hey—I can try!

· finish knitting great nephew’s sweater
· start new socks with Maizy Yarn from Crystal Palace Yarns (bought at the new yarn shop!)
· finish sewing Log Cabin for our bed.. made out of fleece
· cut out pajama pants for me & hubby, already have fabric prewashed
· finish hubby’s fleece jacket (would have been done ages ago if he didn’t want stupid zipper (three times I’ve put it in, now I’m trying to decide if I can live with it)
