We use to meet every Thursday...

Thursday, Thursday in the after noon, for a couple of beers - and a game of pool.
My most favoritist Morphine song.

Knit-wise: I have done nothing since casting on for BBTs second sleeve. NOTHING! ooh, sorry, I pull my knitting basket out with the intention of knitting. Intentions my friends will no get the sleeve knit! Decided that once BBT's sweater is complete I will frog the sweater I knit my mother so many moons ago, you know the one I seamed up horridly, and reuse the yarn to make her a February Lady sweater for her birthday, which is in February. HA! Hopefully I will finish up my gift knitting so that I can knit more socks guilt free.

Sports - Go Celts!!

Movies/T.V. - Rented Pineapple Express this weekend on the reccomendation of a friend who said it was as funny as Superbad, (like anything else can be that funny? I doubt it) OMG, not even close to the hilarity of Superbad. It was bad, not Zohan bad, but not that far off either. Watched Daisy of Love. I showered after.

Knit wise - I cast on for the second sleeve of the F.i.L. sweater now BBT's sweater. I fear that I am going to have rip out the old sleeve and redo that one as I don't remember how I did the increases and of course I didn't take notes! How silly of you to even think that I would have, but you can bet your bottom dollar I will take notes this time around!!

Saturdays are for Socks (maybe Sundays too, depending on how much progress I make on other things.) that will be my new theme! I have so many projects to finish up (BBT's sweater, my berfday sweater, my moms sweater (if I can unseam it and fix the sleeve), sweeties blanket (which I can't do anything on until I finish BBT's sweater as the sweater is holding my other long # 9 circular hostage!) and various other things needed for the myriad of babies that will be appearing this year and the holidays...scarves & such for the in-laws, but i like knitting socks and I don't think I'd be able to quit them just like that. That seems so cold.

Sports wise - GO BOSTON!!!

Book wise - I read the Scarpetta books by Patricia Cornwell. I devour them actually, and I just read that they are making them into a movie (there are 16 to choose from!) I am torn with how I feel on that. I am usually not a fan of the movie once I've read the book, as they are never alike (i.e. Bridge Jones' Diary, same name, same character names, completely different story) I liked it, don't get me wrong, but I took it for what it was, a movie with the same name as a book I've read and I'm kinda afraid that's going to be the case with this. Also, they have Angelina Jolie playing Kay Scarpetta, now, I like Ms. Jolie, but not for this character, I always pictured Kay to be older and resembling Glenn Close. Oh well.

It's Pop-up Lost night tonight! whoo hoo!!

Saturday Night...

is the loneliest night of the week.

Sweetie went to his friends for the hockey game. I was invited, however, I have a feeling he didn't want me to go, no matter how many times he said he wanted me to.
So, I've been abandoned.

Yesterday was my Grandpa's birthday.
Today is my ex-hubby's birthday.
Happy Birthday to 2 of my favorite men.

It's Saturday!! Errand day, but whilst running my errands, I may or may not pop into Seed Stitch where they have Koigu and I may or may not come home with skein of said yarn...

I have bundles of new babies incubating to knit for..well, 2...but still, that's alot of baby knits.

For baby 1, due at the end of Aug. will be getting a kimono sweater in a loverly grassy green.
Baby 2, due at the end of Nov. will be getting a pair of baby mittens and a matching baby devil hat and booties.

Still thinking about this stitch marker deal. If I go forward with it, I will probably start making them in the fall, and kinda take it from there.

is it naptime yet?

So, here's what I've been thinking about doing...making and selling stitch markers. What do ya'll think about that? (seriously...I need imput here...this means you too my little lurkers...)

I don't like Tuesdays. There's nothing on t.v. and my sweetie usually gets suckered into working late on Tuesdays for early release on Thursday. So, I'm often alone till 9 when he gets home, and that's when I start dinner. Oh well. As my grandpa use to say, What are you gonna do?

Haven't touched my toe up sock since Saturday. Will work on it tonight, being that I'll have nothing else to do. Maybe I'll rent a movie...any suggestions?

S'up peeps?!

My weekend :p

I have chocolate kisses for work, as last week sucked and we really needed chocolate and didn't have any..THE HORROR!!! When your boss leaves on Friday and tells everyone, if you get another job offer, don't turn it down, and he's not kidding, it ain't pretty. When I left this horrifyingly bad day, it was POURING! so, date night with my sweetie got rescheduled to Sunday. All was not lost, we got greasy take out and watched bad tv.

Saturday, we had at home movie night. I got snacks, and after dinner (and the last half of VH1's one hit wonders of the 80's) we watched the Fast and the Furious, sweetie had never seen it before! HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?

Sunday we went to the Willows, fed the birds (one bird in particular, loved my sweetie, so, i named him steve) I kicked his ass at air hockey, he beat me at pinball, we had goofy fun, then went to lunch, came home and relaxed. All and all a nice weekend.

On the knitting front, my toe ups look fabulous! am almost at the heel part... woo hoo!!
