“…I will also say that reading the other comments here makes me happy to be part of such a supportive group; it is a tribute to your character that you attract these kinds of friends and followers.”I have more to say but to be honest, I'm a little overwhelmed and am having a hard time conveying just how much what everyone said, and shared, has touched me. So for now, again, THANK YOU.
I need to be knitting on a couple of projects - and yes, they are for Christmas so there's kind of a deadline happening here - but what am I doing instead? Well, aside from writing this post, I'm checking out Ravelry for patterns. I think I have a problem. Wait...I KNOW I have a problem - can't stop/won't stop knitting. I'd go to a support group for this but I'm no quitter, haha.
Because I've been knitting on some Christmas projects, I can't show you what I've made just yet. But I can show you this picture, because it pretty much sums up my life right now:
Top: I have a cold, hence the cough drops.
Middle: Yarn, yarn and more yarn.
Bottom: My BFF Buffer, which I've moved here so I can use it on my hands and wrists at will, to alleviate the pain from overknitting. Also, tons of dog chews, because Paco likes to have lots of options when it comes to getting his gnaw on.
I think I've mentioned it here previously, but our two cats don't get along - well, Kip, the tabby, doesn't like Henry, the black and white cat, despite the fact that we adopted them, as kittens, from the same cage at the animal shelter over 10 years ago. Kip will hiss and growl whenever Henners comes near him...which is why this scene was picture worthy:
This Sunday is the BCS marathon/half marathon! I'm not running it, and am especially glad to not be, considering I've been feeling so crummy all week with a cold. All of my running buddies are doing the race, and I'm really excited to get to be at the finish line and watch them all come in - especially Loretta, who will be running her first half marathon. Only kink in the day is a rainy, windy forecast...but this is Texas, and it's not too late for the weather to change - and for all the runner's sake, I hope it does. Any case, it's a big day and I'm excited for my friends!
Have a great weekend!
