Yarn: 2.79 skeins of Cascade 220 Quatro in Color #5014
I love it! But this weather was way too hot & muggy to even photograph myself in it!
I've decided to destash my Recycled Sari Silk that I bought in the winter. I can't find a project I want to knit with it.
I paid 60$ CAD for all three skeins, and I'm willing to part with all three for 45$ CAD (plus shipping or delivery or pick-up in Montreal (Free delivery or pickup!)). Anyone interested? I'd like it to go to a good home where someone will knit it up. This yarn is smoke-free, and pet-free as well. (I don't let the cats near my yarn!) (They prefer purses anyhow and one likes plastic bags, but that's a whole other story). Email me if you're interested.
I don't understand people who can't be alone. First off, I love alone time. Jamie and I each love our alone time. We both like to be with each other, but we can often hang out by ourself within the same house. But that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about people who cannot be without a relationship. I just can't understand people who jump into another relationship after just getting out of a relationship with someone else. How can someone jump into a new relationship when a recent wound is still healing? I just don't get people. It took me an entire year before being able to start a relationship (with Jamie) after breaking up with my ex (my only other relationship that lasted more than 1 year). I am not saying I hurt for an entire year, but it took me time to trust again, and it took me time to be myself before being myself + 1. I am not saying that I didn't "date" during that year, because I played the field, checked things out, hey a girl needs to have fun, right? But a serious relationship? I just don't get those people who jump from one to another. It's like they can't exist unless they have the +1. Does this even make any sense? I am not talking about married people. I am talking about a situation after ending a relationship with someone. Make sense?
I lost a friend recently, (by choice), and it sort of hurts. I am not going to say it doesn't, but I made the right decision. This friend is a little bit younger than me (which shouldn't make a difference), and while I got married, and bought a house, and had a baby, this friend didn't mature, and move onto the next page of life, like I did. I found it hard to communicate with this person, felt like I had nothing in common anymore, nothing to say. Also - there are other reasons involved as to why I cannot be friends with them anymore, and it's hard. What do you do in a situation like that? Move on, right? It's too bad, because we used to have really good times together, but then life brought us in two different directions. I wish this old friend best of luck in life, but I really hope that this friend realizes the things that they did to get us to where we are now and to why I ended the friendship. Once harm is done to any of my loved ones (I'm not talking physical harm, but emotional/mental), then that's it, c'est fini, bye-bye. I have been wanting to post about this for a while now, I just either a) kept forgetting to do so when I go to post/blog, and b) I didn't have the words to describe how I feel/felt. I still don't know if I am wording this properly, but this is the best that I can, to my abilities of understand the situation. What scares me the most, is that the things that were done were totally out of character, and was instigated by other people. It's sad to think that people stood down to really low levels. I have come to grips with all this now. And I will turn to the next page in the chapter of my life.
Tenant number 2 moved in today. Tenant number three was supposed to be in from British Columbia, no idea where he is. And Number 4 comes Monday, although he had told me today. Weird. If they arrive when I'm not here, they can still be let into the apartment by the other kids, but they just won't get their keys until I'm home.
Tomorrow Sean & I have my 3rd cousin Oliver's 1st birthday party. I am very excited. I also hope that Sean does NOT cry during the happy birthday song.
Tonight I am working on the Stitch Marker Swap Partners. I am hoping to have those mailed out tomorrow. Stay tuned if you're waiting for a partner or two.
Must go finish Sean's laundry. He needs a cute outfit for the birthday party tomorrow. Must look his best! He doesn't get to go to many parties! I'm also working on Sophia from Debbie Bliss' Rialto book. I watched the movie Year of the Dog tonight with Molly Shannon. Really. Crappy. Movie. 'Nuff said.
