Aaaah, it's Monday, again.....
We've been having the most glorious weather the past several days. The humidity has been very low and the temps in the 60s and 70s (F), right now it's 80F and feels wonderful, there's been breezes, blue skies with those fabulous white fluffy clouds. It's the kind of weather that if you happen to be awake in the middle of the night and just maybe you go out the back door....the birds are singing, they are singing their hearts out, aah, those mild Spring nights when they sing all night long...I love that. I also miss it in that DH will not sleep with windows open, you read that right, he will not. SIGH and several little sighs.....so I find myself waking up, either by myself or with the help of Ms.Smooch and whilst I'm showing her the door....I walk out into the night and enjoy the bird song. It's really been nice.
I have gotten the Dulaan knitting completed for this year.....10 pair of Magic 28 socks and 6 hats. I'll be sending Ryan a photo and have her add me to the list of 'completes' for the year.
I received a very sweet surprise in the mail from Dianne, you remember she just went to a fibre fest a couple of weeks ago and would you just look at that wee alpaca? Is that not the cutest? She found him/her (I haven't decided yet) there. Dianne ALSO just got back from Mexico (she's quite the gad about don't you know?) and sent me some wonderful vanilla. This smells soooo good, seriously, what is it with vanilla? Really good vanilla? It smells so good, beyond good, seems to me you should be able to sip it, you know what I'm talking about, but we've all learned (and probably the hard way,eh?) this just should not be done. But damn, it smells so divine! AND the yarn! Look at those cheerful colours! I'll be making a pair of winter house socks with this gorgeous yarn.
Dianne, Thank you so very much, you are such a sweet, kind and generous lady! (I am SO sorry I didn't get the 'thank you' in here originally.....I just got all caught up in singing the praises for the goodies....has anyone out there seen my mind? if so, could you get it back to me? asap? Dianne, forgive me, please.....)
Yep, 2 photos, and why? Ms. Smooch just walked right up during the photo shoot and sat herself down and was just looking so sweet and pretty....(just trying to make up for the middle of the night wake up meows). (plus, wish I hadn't 'lopped' her head there, oh well)
That's it for now...
Happy Knitting to all and continue to make good time.
