Lazy Sunday


Lola loves to jump around in the water, and she has started taking Toby's ball from him in a game of keep away. Then she decides to take the ball into the water, which isn't a good idea since she can't pick up the ball in the water, she only makes it sink more or she pushes it farther out in the water where I can't get it so then I have to send Toby out in the water to get the ball.

These are chuck-it balls, which aren't cheap, so I want the damn things back.

Look at her dirty face! This is what she's really like:

Don't let that cute little face fool you, she can be a terror.

Lounging around today, working on my knitting project, which, unfortunately, I know I'm not going to complete in time. That bugs me. I have been trying so hard for so long to finish what I start (and in a timely manner) that this is a step back. At least I tried, right?

Hey, has anyone seen these or tried them?

These are gorgeous and I would love to get one but they are SOOOOO very expensive I don't want to have serious buyers remorse. Does anyone have any feedback on these? I'd love to hear it.

I hope your day is restful.
Enjoy your day.

Aren’t we all working for the weekend? Especially if it’s a payday weekend?

So…do you have any big plans? I am still working on a knitting project that is kicking my ass. It’s not a difficult pattern, but I have been having such a hard time getting it all started. I can’t get past the set up. I started with metal straight needles of my grandmothers and the yarn kept slipping off the damn needles. Then the yarn I was using was almost the same color as the needles, and it’s fingering weight yarn, so even with my readers I was having trouble seeing the yarn. sonofabitch. So now I have some bamboo circular needles and different yarn. Even if the yarn slips off it’s not going anywhere, and I have a different color too because by now the yarn I was using is just giving me fits looking at it so I’ve put it away for another day.

new stash for the project

So this is the new yarn stash and needles I’m going to try today. This is a beautiful knitting project and dammit if it’s not going to be the death of me.

And as for the purple scarf I was crocheting, just as an aside project and because I wanted to use the yarn, it is done, but I need to find the metal pole that connects the wheeled base of my mannequin to the mannequin body before I can post a proper photo. I know it is around here somewhere, I know I packed it and I know I took it out of the POD, so it’s probably in the garage somewhere…

Have a good weekend.
