While hiding, I've been...

I've been trying to grow things. These are flowers for Butter-flies.

This is a hanging pot thing, with ivy, tiny flowers (don't remember their name)
and some pretty pansies.

One thing people may not know about us knitters, is that most of us
are really quiet impatient. The knitting just keeps us occupied so that
we do not seem so antsy. It takes a lot for me to not try and force
(though I'm not a super sure how one really would, its not like plants
respond to threats) the plants to grow faster. I was really sad the other
day when only one of my tomato seeds was growing. Now there are
3 and that's pretty cool.

I haven't been to Knit-night at the Blue Moon Cafe for the whole month.
I really miss it, but the only one bathroom in the place makes me panic
a bit. I'm going to make it next week though, come hell or high water,
or something like that. I'm going to need to see the Ladies after a weekend
with the family. ;)

well it didn't really work out.

So I turned it into a pillow. I could have made it just the right size, with
a little cutting and sewing. The fact that I didn't mark things right...
It was way to small for HT. And it was even to small for me. Now if I
would have dropped 40 pounds and changed my body shape, then it would have fit.

Ah well. It will make a nice pillow.

Back from the doc

So, the new Doc, put me on new Meds...
Hopefuly they will be helpful. They are more expencive that's for sure.

(pull out soap box) So, what would happen to me if I didn't have insurance?
I would be skrewed thats what. Just today's scrips were $185, they could
have been $1000. So I know that R&D for med companies is costly...
but I bet even in this down and out economy they aren't hurting.
(pust soap box away)

My shawl is finished. I just need to try it out with the brides-maid dress to
see how it looks.

what have I been up to?

Well, this is what I've been up to recently. I've been wishing that the basement
was finished so that I could have my desk back. This is my Ikisti corner. HT got
me a new computer so that I could work on my photography a little faster and
so that I could play WOW again.

The only problem is that he's taken over my desk with his computer. So, when
the basement is finished, he goes down stairs and I get my desk back.

I've also been working on my shawl for my Sister's wedding. It's turning out
pretty well. It took me a while to get the hang of the pattern, but the end result
will be nice.

I have to find pink or tan shoes for the wedding. I was thinking since the boys
are all going to be wearing orange Chucks, that maybe I should get some pink
Chucks to wear.

Well, time to knit a little more and then log in and level my shaman.
Have a great Easter/Spring day.

not funny.

It seems that we have gotten our first "trick" this morning. Snow, April 1st, not digging it.
It would be nice if the weather would just make up it's mind and get warm out.
My UC is acting up because of all this, warm cold wishy washy ness.

My shawl is almost finished. I'm just at the end of the charts. The plan is to finish it today.
Well the knitting part anyway.

Then the rest of the day (my day off (happy dance)) is going to be picking up around here.
It's more than a bit messy.

Here's to hoping the rest of April will be snow free.
