Life As I Know It

  • I woke up last Saturday with a major head cold and still haven’t been able to shake it off completely.
  • I went through one package of Dayquil in three days.
  • Marilyn knocked over a frame and broke it. Two days later Scout broke a second picture frame.
  • Jem is back in school and therefore my days are a slowly getting back to normal.
  • Shawn bought a new vacuum.
  • Shawn finally got rid of the two motorcycles we were “storing” in the garage.
  • I finished reading, The Last Chinese Chef and ‘Tis.
  • I’ve watched approximately 11 episodes of “Murder, She Wrote”.
  • I finished my first pair of pajamas for my sewing class on Tuesday. Next week I will start a blouse.

And to top it off I attended the Ravelry party at Unwind in Burbank last night. I was the quiet one that kept to myself. I had a good time with fellow Raveler’s and brought home some goodies, like a new Namaste Bag:


I also grabbed some Ella Rae Lace:


It looks an awful lot like the Malabrigo I bought at SnB last week:


Both are intended as lace projects. Yes, you heard me correctly. With the exception of Charlotte’s Web Shawl I have not knit lace. Not real lace anyway. I’ve been spending quite a bit of time on Ravelry, (what else do you do when you are sick), looking at lace projects and have a few queued. No definites yet though.

This week seemed quite long when I look back at all the stuff I didn’t do.
