Not much to show

I slept late today and was quite busy at work. I ran a few errands after work, watched a little tv and knitted even less.

Birthday blessings

Another birthday come and gone! A wonderful day filled with friends, family and fun. Lunch with the parents, dinner with hubby and Amy J. Knitting and relaxing to finish the evening. Hubby delivered flowers to work for me to enjoy all week long. I am truly loved and blessed.

Sunday of sun

The sun was put, the weather was warm, knitting was fun. Gluten free brownies eaten, my driver #88 Dale Jr won the delayed 500.

Three things Thursday

1. I woke up early this morning and dragged myself to the dmv to renew my license. So glad that is over.
2. Hubby was downtown today visiting his mom and stopped at the gluten free bakery and got me goodies which he delivered to my office with a coffee.
3. I put some effort in and have only a few rows left on the second sock, which should be completed in the morning.

Just because

My hubby is really good at giving gifts. He brought me chocolate cause he thought I needed it. I love that man, he is the best!

Headache delay

Today knitting on sock after work was delayed due to a migrainebut I was able to make a little progress and finished the gusset.

Just for me

Yarn bought with Xmas money, knit by me for me. The plan is to wear them on my birthday next week.

President's day

I love having the day off. I had lunch with mom and we did a little shopping. Then I came home and knitted on the second sock.

A full day of fun and knitting. Sound team in morning, hung out with Amy J the rest of the day, hitting the stores and then knitting at LYS. Then pizza and more knitting.

Bookclub and knitting

As this is the second Monday of the month that means it was book club night with friends. I love our group, so many ages and tastes. We read the hobbit this month and even though I said I wasn't going to read it, I ended up reading it as Amy bought the book. I enjoyed the book and the discussion. Shannon and I ended up sitting together which meant we had fin and caused trouble. :) I was able to deliver the cowl that she had me make for her. She wore it through the shot evening. I am happy with the results but I am very excited to be done with it.

2 heel Sunday

Well today dawned rainy and stayed that way most of the day. Hubby woke up fighting a cold like me, so after a run for coffee and some groceries, it ended up being a movie watching day, each of us watching something different. I put the cowl to block and turned the heel in two socks. Not bad for not feeling great.

Rainy Saturdays

I love when it rains on my day off, especially if I am not feeling good. It gives me an excuse to stay inside, in my pajamas, knit and watch tv. Bonus today was watching the Olympics. I did finish knitting on the cowl, now I just need to do the finishing: hem one end, get buttons and the snaps, see those on and block it. I did make to the girls for the evening, for food, knitting and Olympics. Preston joined us after work to see Sage win gold in snowboarding!

The opening

Today was the opening ceremonies for the Olympics in Sochi. Which meant hanging out with the girls and knitting. I got to the halfway mark on the cowl. It was a real cool ceremony. It was interesting watching with a generation that was too young to understand the break up of the Soviet union like Preston and I experienced. Looking forward to the games.

Mom's day

Today was my mom's birthday. My brother Jeff organized us for dinner, only missing the other brother. We brought dinner to her and dad. It was great fun and filled with joy.

I made a little head way on Sissi's sock, to the start of the heel flap.

Football and socks

Football games always mean knitting socks and today was no exception. I loved that the Seahawks won! Had a great time watching with the girls and bear.
