This is what I really, really, really would rather be doing. Alas, I'm not. I'm at work doing my typical mid tax season mind freak of trying to figure out what year it is. My date stamp was inexplicably set to 2017. (Thankfully I'm not actually required to date stamp anything). After correcting the date stamp (I can't just leave it if it's wrong!) I look up at my computer screen and think "EEK! I'm in the wrong year's program!" Well, no. 2006 is the tax year.
Now that I've got all that straight. Can I go home? No? Darn.
When I get home, I'm going to string beads for Chelle's Beaded Socks. Because there is no such thing as too many projects and no time for any and they are SO. DARN. CUTE! And I found size 8 beads last night and I have the perfect yarn and....and....and!
I might even do a row or two on Nygard. I knit Liz on the way in - traffic is so lovely - a whole row! Mary T is just going to have to wait for an actual block of time.
Speaking of many projects, this is the yarn I'm using for my Jaywalkers for FiberFlix this month. Logan's Run can't possibly be a cheesy movie, can it? I'm almost positive Amanda Cathleen sent me the Irving Park Shepherd Sock yarn.
And no, I haven't gotten much knitting done. I'm almost done with Topi, but I couldn't do the wrap and turns during the play Sunday. We saw The Secret Garden at the Willow's Theater (with my mom and some friends). The set was absolutely gorgeous. Lucy Simon (Carly's sister) wrote the music and lyrics for the play, and it was just lovely. I didn't remember the grown ups having all that much to do in the book and rereading it, no they didn't, but the play did flesh out their backstory. Except for poor Dickon's Mother, who had quite an important part in the book, and the nurse were pretty much cut. Oh well. Dramatic license.
I'm listening to the radio discussing the hoopla of Daylight Saving Time this weekend. Not to wish any personal injury on anyone who didn't vote it in (and for them, much horror and anguish) but I hope it's a HORRIBLE HORRIBLE mess. Apparently phones are going to be affected too? Good grief. News flash - we do not regulate the amount of sunlight that reaches the earth! Stupid retail. They think that they can lure us all into stores to squander money if it's late lighter. Grrr.
And from Booking Through Thursday:
Do you lend your books to other people? If so, any restrictions? I do. Usually, I want it back, eventually. Preferably in a condition where I can still read it, but I don't care if it's a bit worn. As long as the pages aren't falling out and a chocolate bar wasn't used as a book mark.
Do you borrow books from other people? (Friends or family—I'm not talking about the public library) Sometimes. SIL and brother moved across the country, probably to avoid lending me books. I did tell you about the bathtub and the suntanning incident, no?
And, most importantly—do the books you lend/borrow get returned to their rightful owners?? Eventually! Pinky swear!
