Ginger Twist. I've never heard of this company before, and I've never seen tea in a packet like this before either. It's pretty darn good. Hey - Cynthia - where can I get more?
This image is for Rhoda. Ketchup chips do exist. Maybe they are a Canadian thing?? (But I doubt that?)
Sean was full of beans today. He was STANDING up on the couch leaning against the back, and he was bouncing up and down. He loves to bounce. (While someone's holding him, in his exercauser, you name it!) I think he's full of beans! Or he has ants in his pants.
So, I spent a day or so thinking about my Chevron scarf, and what I wanted to do about it. I decided to pull out a skein of BMFA's Rhondonite, in medium weight, and see how it would look in my chevron scarf with the Black Onyx.
I couldn't believe that there was a knot in this skein too! It's the 2nd skein from this same order, with a knot to tie the yarn together. Total disappointment. What's my luck?
And.... I present to you know, Rhondonite & Black Onyx together. I think they go so well together. Finally - I'm happy about this project. I'm loving the pink mixes in Rhondonite.
The knot in the skein, turned out that it was at the beginning of the cake I wound. Grrr. Not the end of the world, I'll weave it in, but that sucks. Wasn't expecting that to show up. And on top of it, I tried to knit straight with it in there, but it undid as I started knitting .... so I had to take out a few stitches to leave enough to weave in the ends. Grrr!
No further progress on my Jaywalkers.
(I think I need to produce some FO's!)
There is a cat living in my backyard. Actually, I think it's more than just 1 cat. They made themselved comfortable under my balcony for the winter, where we were storing this table set, and lately this one cat has been hanging out on the chair, under the table, etc. I will not feed him, because he won't ever go away if that's the case. I have no idea where he came from, or if he was someone's cat and is lost now. I really don't know.
I saw this today, and wanted to share it with you. So true!! Very very cute indeed!
This afternoon I watched the movie A Good Year with Russell Crowe. It was not bad. It was about a British investment broker who inherits his uncle's chateau and vineyard in Provence, where he spent much of his childhood. He discovers a new laid-back lifestyle as he tries to renovate the estate to be sold. A little bit of a love story, no action, no comedy... so it was just "eh"....
Tonight I played poker with our usual gang, however, I didn't win anything. I went All-in against my father-in-law and lost. He has Queen & Seven, I had Queen & Two, and there was a Queen, and a Seven and a Two on the table. I thought I had him beat, and he had two pairs, with his 7's being higher than my 2's.... grr.... That's okay... usually Jamie kicks ass, so I guess it's someone else's turn to win!
Tonight I watched a bit of Live Earth, and I'll continue tomorrow. I'm going for a hair cut (well, trim really), to get rid of split ends. I haven't trimmed my hair or cut it since I chopped it off last August. Tomorrow night I think we're having dinner at Jamie's dad's place, since his sister will be in town. But if we don't end up going because they come back late from La Ronde, I don't care either way. I really just wanted a chill day tomorrow.
