Firstly, looks what Felicia at Fluffy Flowers sent me!!
Secondly, watch Jericho tonight on CBS at 9pm. Write in how much you love it. Lie if you have to.
Okay, clearly Typepad is not going to let me type between pictures. Grr. Check out all that patriotic spirit! I'm thinking there might be a red, white and blue theme......
Red hot at least. Adrienne and I made it to the pancake breakfast by 9am, lived through the line, waited the fifteen minutes for the parade to start on time at 10am - fifteen minutes after 10am when the parade still hadn't started we bailed for Peet's and an iced coffee. It was 92 degrees already. Yowza.
In knitting news - well, there is much culling in the land of Carrie K as the interiors of the house are getting painted and I'm taking advantage of it by redoing practically everything that I'm not relocating. Oh! I heaved the Norwegian socks after eight years of UFO-ness with one sock finished and the other to the heel flap because, well because I used Wool Ease before I knew any better. Oddly enough, I'm not even the slightest twinge of guilt. In fact, I feel relief. Now I can make them in decent yarn that doesn't squeak.
I like my yarn to speak to me, but I prefer it a bit more metaphorically.
For the Chunkster Challenge I originally chose only Madwoman in the Attic to read but once I designated that book as my one Chunkster Challenge book, naturally I immediately stopped reading it. I did read Jim Butcher's Grave Perils (678 pages), Arthur Quinn's A New World: An Epic of Colonial America from the Founding of Jamestown to the Fall of Quebec (532 pages), the ever popular (this is what? the 4th challenge its fulfilled? Righteous.) Richard the Third by Paul Murray Kendall (602 pages), Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood (521 pages). They were chosen using the scientific method by checking my Books Read Excel sheet for books that fell in the time frame of the challenge and were over 500 pages.
Did I mention that you should watch Jericho tonight at 9pm on CBS? Naturally the new season of Dr Who starts on the Sci Fi channel at 8pm with a two hour episode.
My new favorite Online Dictionary, Your Dictionary. That's the word of the day. The email is more descriptive. I like that I can hear the pronunciation as I tend pronounce phonetically, as opposed to correctly.
