it's getting longer

Its getting longer. I just started on my second skein. It should be finished
before the little sisters wedding. I'm hoping to photograph it on one of the
other brides maids.

It's finally getting nice outside. Thank goodness. It's really going to help
bring people around to happier feelings. If that happens... maybe things all
over might start looking up.

We have to do some cleaning. We've let the house get away from us.
This is what it can look like... not what it looks like.

Saw Watchmen today. I liked it. The only thing I will agree with the
critics about is the sex scene in the owl ship. Didn't really seem necessary.
Other than that, I thought it was a pretty good rendering of the comic.
I like the meat of Alan Moore's work, but i'm not a fan of all the filler that
he seemed to add in to some of the stories.

All said, in
Watchmen his women were believable.

I'm feeling very rambly so I'm going to head to bed. But tomorrow there will be a lot of cleaning to do.

... and then back to work.

I put together a nice little breakfast today. One last treat before going back to work.

And I finished my socks. They are Lorna's Laces: Black watch(minor edit there) in a random
pattern thought up by me as I went along. Toe up and 2 at a time (until
i got to putting the heel together... didn't quiet plan that one out right).

There is just enough of it left to make a mitered square for my
new/remade, History of knits Afghan. I'm going to have 2 nice smushy
knits to curl under one of these days.

Well, tomorrow it is back to work. I'm glad I have a job, but why does
the weather have to warm up just as i'm heading back there?

Paging Dr. Grimlock.

HT got sick on Sunday. Not sure what it was. 24 hour flu maybe.
So, Dr. Grimlock and I took care of him. My old school play t-shirt quilt
is a favorite when we are feeling sick or just chilly.
HT is feeling fine right now, but still a little sick from all the chick/bad
movies we watched on Sunday.

part of the list

So my work-space is almost finished. I just need a working chair.
I might have just the right thing out in the garage but we'll have to see.
They always say that you want a bit of a tall chair for sewing.

For knitting, I already have a good chair.
And my old cloths holder is now a fabric and loose patterns and tools.
I think i did a good job... Maybe this wont get turned into a walkin closet.
