Knitting Wha???

So far, I’ve talked about a lot of different things.  I just realized that I haven’t spoken anything about my knitting.

For the past few months, I’m not quite sure what’s been happening.  I used to try and chip away at one or two projects daily, however lately, I think I’ve lost my mojo.

For someone who notoriously loves to start new projects all over the place, I think I’m doing pretty well with only two projects on the needles right now.

The oldest of the two is a pair of Monkey socks.  The newest is a February Lady sweater.

I’m too lazy to get my camera out and take a picture of them, so I’ll do that a bit later. 

Just thought I’d share.

Under the Sea

As I sit here at dinner, I contemplate many a thing.

Of primary concern, at this time, is this: What exactly, is it, that I’m eating?

Well friends, I’ll let you all be the judge. I’m thinking its a big mash of everything all together.

Either way, for someone as unfussy as myself, I have to say that I don’t care for this dish too much.

I think I’ll send it over the food rainbow bridge. Good riddance!!!

1 Million Calories Later…

So I just found out that I can blog, complete with attachments, by sending an email to WordPress. I’d say this is good news. So, now that we’ve established that this is good news, here’s my test email/post, directly from my BlackBerry. (I swear I can’t live without this thing.)

I’ve just finished polishing off two small Iced Caps (I was really thirsty) and I’m sitting in my driveway. I’m too tired/lazy to get outta my car. I never thought just sitting here could be so relaxing!

The weather was absolutely beautiful today and I just had to get out and enjoy the sunshine. I decided to make my way down to Bluffers Park and walk my dog.

I was able to capture a few pics with my BlackBerry and, I think they came out not too badly for a phone camera.

Here they are:

Pit

What an absolutely gorgeous day it was today!
This is the kind of day that makes me want to take the dog for a never-ending walk. This is the kind of gorgeous day that makes me want to run my toes through the grass and eat a huge, juicy Asian Pear. 
I love spring. I love how everything is new and fresh and bright and promising.
While walking Willie, I snapped this picture on my phone – the scene was so much prettier in person, but this will have to do.
A Gorgeous Day

A Gorgeous Day

I’ve added this picture as my BlackBerry desktop background since it’s so cheery.

Still the pit in my belly weights ten tonnes.  I left my grandma at the hospital on Monday night.  It’s going to take so much more than a stinkin’ picture to make this one better.  Screw the gorgeous day.

Seeds Please

For anyone that doesn’t know me – I’m an animal lover.  I’d own an entire farm if left to my own devices.  Having said that, I think it’s perfectly logical that I own a “mini” farm right here at my place. 

Part of my “mini” farm is comprised of four cute, wee parrotlets.  From top left, going clockwise, they are as follows:  Pickle – my standard male, Mia – my dilute blue hen (American White), Mya – my dilute yellow (American Yellow) hen, and Taka – my blue male.

My Four Parrotlets

My Four Parrotlets

Well, somebody I know, (cough, coughy, Mya) decides she feels like popping out some blank eggs.  OK.  No problem.  If that’s what you like to do, you go for it girl.  (Lol).  The only problem was, about three eggs into the clutch, somebody (I’m not going to mention any names, cough Mya) decides she’s going to keep an egg inside their little birdie body and become egg-bound. 

All joking aside, it wasn’t Mya’s fault.  In fact, it most certainly was mine.

My preference has always been to feed my birds pellets.  Various breeders, as well as several internet sites, have advised not to feed mutation parrotlets pellets, as it can cause kidney failure.  I’ve listened.  I’ve fed them seeds.  I’ve fed them fresh fruit and vegetables.  But I’ve never been comfortable feeding them that much seed.  My avian vet is telling me that it’s OK to feed them around 80% high grade pellets, and about 20% seeds.  Now, I know there are also other avian vets out there that caution against any seeds for any parrotlet that is even split to a mutation.  As you can see, all my parrotlets are mutations, even the little split to blue standard male.  What a decision!

The good news is that I left poor little Mya overnight at the vet’s, and the next day, she was ready to come home after passing the egg (yey!).  I went home and started switching her over to pellets, with more success than I thought I’d have, to tell you the truth.
I have Mya and Mia in a breeder cage with a divider, so Mia has full access to see exactly what Mya’s eating.  A few days later, I began to switch Mia over as well, and within a day, she was eating the pellets as well.  Next goal:  switch over my remaining two parrotlets, and after that, the four lineolated parakeets.

I must admit, it’ll be cheaper in the long run.  While parrots will always kick food around, there’s going to be less wastage from seed hulls as there was before.  My two parrotlet hens, as well as my two linnie hens, will be better equipped during egg laying to handle the calcium depletion which naturally occurs; that translates into less chance of egg-binding which is always a good thing.

My lingering concern is that my vet could be slightly wrong, and giving my babies pellets will shorten their lifespans, not to mention run up extremely high vet bills.

If you were me, what would you do?  Any suggestions?

Chasing a Dream…

Why can’t I get any of my pictures to look good like the ones in the National Geographic magazine?????  I’m sure there’s a million reasons why, starting with my camera, lol…

CellSpin Test # 2

I recently downloaded Cellspin on my BlackBerry. This app is supposed to be able to allow one to blog to several different sites, including WordPress (yey), Facebook, Twitter, Blogspot, etc. The great thing about this app is that you can upload pictures, videos, and voicenotes directly from your BlackBerry to your blog – I like that!

So, here’s my first real CellSpin test. And yes, I’m blogging from my phone.

I Got Hungry

I was craving a bit of a midnight snack. Look what I ended up with:

Blackberry = Fruit = Good For You

They say berries have great antioxidant qualities about them.  For that reason alone, I make it a point to indulge my Blackberry addiction as often as possible.

A few weeks back I noticed that my Blackberry 8830 was having difficulty charging.  It seemed that the charging port was broken.  I tried to put up with it for a while, rationalizing that I could “make due” with a “difficult” piece of hardware, but alas, I cracked and convinced myself that it was just better to purchase a whole new handset instead. 

Look what followed me home a few days ago:

zoe-and-bb-picnik1

My shiny new Curve 8330 wasn’t my first hardware choice – but it’ll do for now.  I must say I love the new 4.5 OS – everything is so much nicer when I surf 😉  Trust me, I’ve been having a fun time downloading every free app I can get my hands on.  I’ve had to uninstall a few already due to lack of space 😀

On a different note, have you every bought something, not because you needed it, but simply because there was something about it that you loved?  Well, that’s what happened with me and this cool bar of soap.  I love it’s packaging, I love it’s smell, and I love the way it feels in my hand.  I want to open it up and use it, but then that would definitely ruin it, and I want this bar of soap to last forever, lol. 

soap-picnik2

Now all I need is an equallly as intriguing soap dish.  Heck, while I’m at it, let me cover soap dishes as well.  I need one.  I’ve never had one that I truly liked.  Isn’t that heinous?  Can you imagine?  Living all my years without this simple pleasure?  Seriously though people, if any of you happen upon a unique, minimalistic-looking soapdish, let me know, eh?

My New Camera

While I appreciated the fact that I had a camera to take pictures with when I went to Pioneer Village with Bob, I wasn’t very impressed with the picture quality once I got home and viewed them on my computer. 

I made a decision that it was time to rehome my little Kodak point-and-shoot with my mom :P, and get me a new camera.

It was Best Buy’s lucky day, lol.  I walked into the store ready to buy an upgrade.  A very nice gentleman named Sadiq assisted me in figuring out which would be the best camera for me, and after much deliberation (about two minutes worth), I concluded I should leave the store with a new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28.

It was a floor model, so I got a sweet discount on the camera itself, as well as the warranty offered through Best Buy.  I picked up a few other things while I was at at, and took my new toy home.

I plugged the battery into the charger, and waited for the next eight hours to be able to use my camera.

You be the judge and let me know if the pictures and videos I post from here on in are of better quality than the previous ones.  I’m hoping I made a good choice and didn’t just waste my hard earned money.

I Love Bob

 

Last Thursday, my little brother and I (to protect his identity, let’s call him Bob), took a day trip to Black Creek Pioneer Village. 

First let me say how excited I was when I got this big idea to take Bob to Pioneer Village the previous Monday at work.  Bob seemed pretty excited at the prospect too, so it was pretty cool.  I called him the morning of to make sure he had woken up on time and eaten breakfast, and he answered the phone sounding like he’d been awake already for hours.  He came out of the house all happy, with this huge smile on his face, and his little iPod in his pocket – it was so cute. 

It was the first time the park was open during the March break, and due to the weather, not all of the buildings were open yet, as the cold weather could still potentially damage the inside of the buildings and their contents. 

We first walked around the main building which housed the gift shop, the snack bar, and a museum.  Bob loved the displays with the toys – especially the toy trains.  I was kinda grossed out when I saw the doll display case.  It’s a little unsettling knowing that the dolls you’re looking at have real human hair, and they’re about 160 years old.  The previous owners of that hair are dead.  I was looking at a dead person’s hair.  Maybe it was just the museum, that to be honest, I found a little creepy for some reason, or I was just being dumb, but I was so creeped out by the thought of this dead person’s hair being on that doll, that I was compelled to take a picture of it.  (How retarted is that, lol).  I invite you to be creeped out with me.  Have a look for yourself…Feel anything yet?  Please say yes, cause then that means that I really was just being dumb, and I have a reputation to uphold, lol.

Is This Creepy or What?

Is This Creepy or What?

Both Bob and I really loved all the different buildings and the people dressed in period costume.  My favorite was the farm house ,as there was a lady in the kitchen cooking maple sugar cookies over a fire.  I would think food would never cook quite as evenly over an open fire as it does nowadays in an oven or on the stovetop, but what do I know. 

My other favorite building was the Halfway House – it seemed to be a saloon/inn/ballroom.  100_32231I absolutely fell in love with one of the oil paintings in the dining room, but go figure, I wasn’t able to get a good shot of it.  This is the best that I got – which sucks pretty bad.  It was one of those paintings that if I had money to blow, and it was up for sale, I would have purchased it on the spot.  I guess it’s good that my picture came out horribly, that way, I’m not tortured by what could have been 🙂

In the Halfway House, downstairs in the saloon, there was a man in period costume playing the fiddle.  I’m not the biggest fan of the violin, but I was enjoying sitting down after walking the grounds and enjoying the music.  Don’t mind the horrible cinematography

I took a slew more pictures, however, so as not to bore you, I have only included about twenty-four (to be exact) below for your viewing pleasure:  😛

My BDay

Well, my birthday rolled around a couple weeks ago and it kinda sucked. Well, I guess I shouldn’t say it sucked, cause there were some definite things about it that didn’t suck. Like the following:

a) I had a wicked evening prior with a good friend of mine.
b) My best friend came with me to complete the purchase and pick-up of my new old car.

My heart wells up with pride when I consider my purchase. So sleek, so sexy, so alluring. How can anyone resist me behind the wheel of this thing. Out of modesty, so as not to appear like I’m bragging, I’ve decided to post a “limited view” photo of this new, wonderful thing. Try not to get too excited when you see it.

They Don't Get Sexier Than This

The parts that sucked about my birthday were as follows:

a) I am a year older and feeling “dirtier” by the minute
b) I am a year older and feeling “dirtier” by the minute
c) I am a year older and feeling “dirtier” by the minute

I had a bit of separation anxiety as well, considering the fact that I parted from a loved one at Canadian Tire later that day after picking up the car, to take my own car, my own way, in a separate direction, to go home, instead of that loved one driving me home, as per usual.  It was snowing. It was dreary. It was dismal. I felt so weird and lonely. It was just pathetic, really. I’m starting to cry just thinking about it.  LOL.

The following night I suffered the same separation anxiety, but this time, it was leaving the movie theatre after watching a movie. It was snowing. It was dreary. It was dismal. I felt so weird and lonely. It was just pathetic. I’m still crying if you really must know.

Are you guys noticing a pattern, or do you need me to continue ?  Where’s my Kleenex.

Smile!

My little sweetie, Zoe, is a four pound long-haired chihuahua. She’s two years old, and I adopted her last November.

None of my previous dogs have ever smiled the way she does. In fact, I didn’t even realize Zoe was smiling until I saw another dog doing the same thing on YouTube. I’m pretty sure I’ve taught her to smile on command, (that is, unless the previous family did it and I just haven’t figured that out yet), and I finally had my camera on hand when it happened today.

The funniest thing is when she smiles at me from waaaaaaay across the room without being prompted. She always smiles when I first come home and sit on my bed. You just know she wants attention when I see those little white canines peek out from behind her top lip. She’s just too cute I can’t help hugging her! 🙂

I just walked in the door after hanging out at a very nice dessert place and seeing The International this evening. Guess who was sitting there smiling at me as I came through the door….

Thank You Ron

Firstly, I want to thank my friend Ron for asking me about my blog this morning. Ron, if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have felt sorry for my lonely blog and visited it today to post this entry. I owe you so much my friend – what the heck, where did that ish come from????

Technology changes so quickly and things become obsolete the minute they hit the market. I’m suffering from a dirty, slightly used feeling right now when I think about my Blackberry investment and the fact that it doesn’t have a camera. A few months ago, that didn’t matter to me much. I have a camera at home, so if I needed to take pictures, I would just go home to get it. But now that I’ve discovered this wonderful thing called “blogging” (I know this is foreign terminology, its just such a new concept, but stay with me here) I’m starting to wish my phone did have a camera. Since I’m able to blog straight from my OperaMini browser, it would make it so much more exciting if I could add phone pictures while I’m at it!

I guess I can’t always get my way – but that doesn’t mean I can’t complain about it. 😉

P.S. Ron, when are you starting your blog?

Pink Panther 2

Did I mention I love Steve Martin.  He’s actually my boyfriend, he just doesn’t know it yet.

I saw the Pink Panther 2 last night.  It’s not as good as the first one, but it had me laughing.

I Love My Slow Cooker!

A few weeks ago I had a big, bright idea.  I thought to myself, “Self, you don’t cook much.  In fact, you never cook anything except oatmeal and boiled eggs.  You need to cook and stop eating out/ordering in so much.”  So off Sheri went to WalMart and bought a shiny, new, five quart Crock Pot.

Crock Pot

Crock Pot

I’ve had this butternut squash sitting my my fridge for about two weeks now, and the recipe it was intended for, but I just hadn’t gotten around to making it until today.

Don’t get me started on the joys of peeling and chopping a raw butternut squash.  I could go on for hours. 

I can’t remember where exactly I found this recipe, but I thought I’d give it a try.  Please note, I am admitting that I don’t know where I found it, so whoever wrote this recipe – you deserve full credit.

Autumn Squash Casserole

1 Stick of butter, melted

1 Onion, chopped

5 lbs butternut squash, peeled and cut in 1/2″ pieces

1 1/2 cups orange juice

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 tsp cinnamon

Place the butter, onion, squash and orange juice in the slow cooker.  Cook on LOW for six to ten hours, or HIGH for three to four hours.  Add the cinnamon and maple syrup.  Using a potato masher, mash the ingredients.  Mix until smooth and serve warm.

Another Shot

Another Shot

I opted to cook this recipe on HIGH for three and a half hours.  I came home, and voila!  It was cooked.  I finished the seasoning as per the recipe, and started eating!

The orange juice, cinnamon and maple syrup give this casserole a very tangy zip.  If I were to make this again, I think I would opt for one cup of orange juice, as opposed to one and a half.

Where would I rate this recipe on a scale of one to ten?  Probably a four or five.  It’s not bad, but not the best I’ve tasted (at least the way mine turned out).

Here’s another shot of the results after being mashed in the stoneware bowl it was cooked in.  I know, I know – presentation is everything, and you could have put it in a nicer bowl.  You’re absolutely right.  But…I didn’t, so get over it, lol ;-).

JavaScript and Flash

In my quest to familiarize myself with the whole blogging thing, as well as what WordPress is capable of doing, I’ve been fiddling around with my widgets.

I found this great widget site!  I love the selection, and would loooovvvee to add some of those to my blog.  I even found one for the Dog Whisperer, Knitting, etc.  I was ecstatic!

So Sheri tries to post the JavaScript HTML in her blank widget box – HTML script shows up on my blog.  Sheri goes back and copies the Flash code, pastes it back into her blank widget, hoping for the best.  Damn.  No go.  It directs me to Widgetbox.com.  Not cool.

So Sheri does some research and finds out that her free WordPress blog doesn’t support JavaScript or Flash!  The frickin’ nerve! 😛

Sheri also learns that in order to put these cool little widgets in  her sidebar, she has to own her own domain and be running WordPress on her own site.  We’re getting into the “no longer free” part of this equation.  I’m not sure how I feel about this revelation.

Does anyone out there have their own domain and experience using the WordPress software?  Feel free to leave me a comment about the difficulty level for a beginner.

I have a funny feeling I will end up going with my own domain – I’m just a bit nervous about starting and not being able to finish :-S

On the bright side, I figured out that I don’t need a separate app installed on my BlackBerry 8830 in order to blog from my phone.  Last night I was furiously searching the web for plugins to facilitate just that, to no avail.  No one seems to have any decent plugins for a BlackBerry, but there are lots for the iPhone.  Weird. 

I guess I’m lying when I say I don’t need a separate app to blog from my BB.  I didn’t try it from the default browser that comes with the phone, so I don’t really know.  I also run the OperaMini browser on my BB, and I was able to log in and post with no problems at all.  OperaMini is a great browser to have on your BB – it’s allows greater functionality on various sites that the default browser just doesn’t allow – for example, I can post things on Ravelry that I can’t when using the default browser.

How did I find this out?  Go figure, Sheri was under the weather on Family Day, and was pretty much in bed all day.  Being in bed that long when you’re not well enough to be up and about, but not sick enough to be passed out, can get a bit boring.  Thank goodness for the internet!

The other good thing that happened today is that I figured out how to import all of twelve previous Blogger posts to this WordPress blog.  At least something worked the way I wanted it to with this free blog 😉

Brrrr

Can we say it’s cold. I think my landlords turned the heat off to help support their daughter’s new condo habit, lol.

So. After a day’s worth of deliberation and contemplation, I have come to the realization that I can’t manage more than one blog site. It’s just too difficult to maintain. I started out with my first blog site .  Actually, wait.  Let me correct myself.  My true first blog site is here.  I totally forgot that I had stuff posted there.  The Blogger site (the first site referred to above), was actually my second blog. What I love about both sites, primarily the Blogger site, is the ease with which one can change up the widget locations on the page.  I also love the ease with which I can post HTML and media.  The concern I had with the above two sites is this – I’m unable to make specific blog entries private.  It’s all or nothing, and that’s not what I’m looking for.  If I’m going to be putting all this time into blogging, I want to at least know that I’m going to be able to make some parts of it “open to the general public.”  I don’t want everything to be a secret!  That’s no fun.

So.  That lead me, late last night, (as you can clearly see in the previous entry’s time stamp), to get the bright idea that I would go searching the web for free, selectively private blog sites.  First I found the LiveJournal site.  I set up a blog there.   I then realized, in my inexperience, the fact that that site is great for people who are looking to post entries with or without complicated pictures/media, however, there was no ability to add widgets which could facilitate what I was looking for.  Okay.  Next!

So.  On to the WordPress.com site.   As I have learnt, this is another site that allows selectively private blogging, while allowing users to utilize widgets/extensive media posting, etc.  Bingo.  I’m a happy camper.

Now.  The problem I have is this – what do I do with my other blog sites?  The LiveJournal one I’m not too worried about.  In fact, I think I’m going to close it after I’m done this entry.   I’m thinking that I’ll move the info on my Blogger and MSN Spaces sites to this current blog instead.  Voila!  One site.  Happy camper.

Now.  I guess the trick to this is finding the time to move everything. 

Done.  I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

In closing, please carefully review the following 😛

Uh Oh.

I have a real problem now. I don’t know what to do about it.

I want a blog site that supports a public blog, but gives me the ability to hide occasional blog posts from the public view (my eyes only, not even friends’ eyes).

Apparently, in Blogger, there is a way one can keep their blog for friends only, however, this would apply to all blog posts, not just a selected few. That’s not what I want.

I found LiveJournal.com and WordPress.com, however, these sites do not allow the widgets that Blogger does in the margins. I love having my favorite YouTube videos posted in the margins.

What a difficult decision! Where do I keep my blog? Any suggestions?

Right now, I have an MSN Spaces blog, a LiveJournal blog, a WordPress blog, and a Blogger blog. I’d say that’s too many, wouldn’t you?

OK, you asked for it. Here comes a video:

Word Press Virgin

Well, here I am!

I’m new to this site, so give me a few days to figure out what I’m doing here.

I’ll be back soon!

This is a serious test

Frangipani Flowers

This is just a test that I wanted to do.  I signed up for windows Live Writer, and I think I rather like it.  This is great!

Cute as a Button

So, for the past year or so, I’ve been debating each time I step into PetSmart, about whether or not I should leave PetSmart with a pair of Button Quail. Well…I finally took the plunge today. Here’s my two little male and female quail. They are really quite adorable – so tiny, and have the most adorable little walk.
I’ve read you can inhibit their “boinking” tendancy (fly straight up in the air when startled) by clipping their flight feathers. Well, that’s what I did tonight. I first caught the female (the brown one), wrapped her in a Kleenex and clipped her wings. With considerably more effort, I then caught the super skittish male, wrapped him in a tissue, and clipped his wings as well. I’m hoping this will stop them from boinging straight in the air the next time they’re out of their cage.
These birds came complete with their own freshly laid egg. This egg is huge compared to the female, who is larger than the male. It’s bigger than my budgies eggs, and almost the same size as my cockatiel’s eggs. Let’s see if I can get her to sit on a clutch until they hatch. Wish me all the best!

A true friend knows your weaknesses
but shows you your strengths,
feels your fears but fortifies your faith,
sees your anxieties but frees your spirit;
recognizes your disabilities
but emphasizes your possibilities.
William Arthur Ward

Phew! I’m tired!

I just finished my dinner, and man, am I exhausted! You know what I have, right?

So guess where I am right now? I’m sitting in a cafe making this blog entry on my new Blackberry 8830! This thing is so amazing – I love it! Went shopping last night with my best friend to go have a look around for a new phone. After a year and eight months, my old cell’s battery was just about to kick the bucket. I was planing on getting a PDA, perhaps a MotoQ, but walked out of the mall significantly poorer with my new, top of the line BB. Go figure.

Oh yes, ang guess who hatched sometime last night? Marshmallow and Tinkerbell’s first baby from the second clutch. Oh man – what am I going to do with all these babies????

Ravelry

So I finally got my invitation to be a beta tester about a week ago. Of course Sheri spends about six hours the first night she has a profile taking pictures of her work and uploading it onto Flickr.

Tonight I took an hour or so and sorted through my multitudes of needles and hooks and electronically filed each one on my profile also.

My biggest job will be making note of what’s in my stash. That job’s going to kill me!

Kooza

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve visited you! I think my recent, much anticipated invitation to Ravelry.com has inspired me to come back here and update something.

Well…what’s new and exciting with me….

I had an amazing time at Cirque du Soleil this past Thursday. I went with a good friend of mine, and it was worth every penny I spent to get there. I can’t wait until the next show arrives in Toronto again.

Finally Sheri!

Well, as a lot of you know, I love animals.

I had a pair Blue Capped Bleu Cordons, and the female died. So for the longest time, I’ve had a lone male who it seems has been obsessed with pulling out the feathers on his head.

So Sheri feels sorry for her little pint-sized bird today and goes and buys him a very costly ($$$) female partner. (I’m going to miss his gorgeous little song when he’s calling for a female.) Anyways, I see them in the cage together looking like they’re going to be getting on just fine, and then BAM!…my male is chasing the female around the cage looking like he’s going to kill her.

I’m really excited about this latest happening, as I’ll be damned if I’m going to have to move her to another cage. I have enough cages in my place already. Sheesh!

Montreal

Wow, I haven’t visited you in a long time! Sorry about that.

Well, I went to Montreal three weekends ago and had an amazing time. Unfortunately, I didn’t take my camera, so I don’t have any pics.

We stayed at Loew’s Hotel Vogue. It was my first time at that hotel, and I must say, I was impressed by the service. Gotta love the bed 😉

Oh, and I dropped my friends home too! 😛

Bable

Well, I went to see the movie Bable tonight. It wasn’t too bad. I found it to be one of those movies, however, that leave me with a wierd feeling as I leave the theatre. Has anyone else reading this seen it as well? Any thoughts you’d care to share? Cate Blanchett is my absolute favorite actress, and Brad Pitt…well, let’s just say, he’s Brad Pitt.

As you can see, it’s 2:49 a.m. in the morning, and I’m up editing decks for work. I’m really ecstatic at the thought of being up, oh, probably another hour and a half completing my task. Work sucks sometimes, really it does.

Well, I’ve started my new sock project. I’m using sock yarn on size three DPN’s, and having a ball. I’ve completed three centimetre’s worth of 2X2 ribbing, and I can’t wait to get on to the fun stuff, namely, shaping the heel! 😛 And oh, I like Kitchener stiching. Am I the only one???

I’m a Year Older…Sheesh!

Well, today is my birthday, or technically, yesterday. I’m sorry, you’re just going to have to guess how old I am. But I will say that I had the best day today that I’ve had in a really, really long time.

I spent the majority of the afternoon with my family. My little brother has fallen in love with my video iPod, and I’ve got a sinking suspicion he’s not going to be happy with the Nano I was intending to get him. He also felt the need, in his exhuberent mood, to get a running start and knock me over onto the couch. I see nothing has changed much. The other brother used to do the same, lol.

The evening was spent with a really cool friend of mine–much needed “hanging out” time indeed.

My shift is killing me!

I got a cute pic of my brother monopolizing my iPod, however, the camera is still with my family. I’m not sure if I can come back to a blog entry later and ad a pic, but if I can’t, look out for a future posting.

Oh yeah…finished knitting my first sock! It looks real wonky, but it’s a sock. Done with the practice run, and on to a real project. I’ll keep you all posted on the status as I go.

The First Time


Well, it’s my very first blog entry here on my brand new site…yey! I’m not really too sure what to say at this point, but please feel free to visit back regularily for updates.

Hungry anyone?

Cheers!
