September 29 of 30

Sean let me sleep in this morning, and I much needed it. Things have been really busy around here, and I know that if I didnt get some extra sleep, eventually it would get me and run me down. Upon waking up, Jamie had whole wheat French toast ready on the table. It was delicious!

This afternoon we caught up on some TV that we'd missed during the week, Prison Break from Monday, Survivor from Thursday, Weeds also from Monday, and I sat on the couch and knit some more squares on Sean's blankie. I dont know why I am procrastinating Jamie's dad's birthday gift, but I have been. Must knit on that. Must knit on that. I must keep telling myself that! However, I have 2 full squares to show you tomorrow. I may even knock a 3rd square out tonight....! I've been loving working on his blankie. But next week I must take a break and work on that gift! His birthday is Oct 11th! And we're seeing them at a family function on the 6th! That leaves me a week, unless I wait tto give it to him when we go out to celebrate his birthday just us. We'll see how much time I have this week. Not too sure yet what is going on, besides knit night on Wednesday night and a play date Thursday at Jenn's house.

Late afternoon I went over to the Pharmacy and picked up some contact solution for Jamie as he'd run out, and to get the water jugs for our water cooler. (We prefer it over tap water). Anyhow, I returned 3 full garbage bags of soda cans to recycle (you get .5 cents per returned can) and made some loose change, which I'll keep for Wednesday night at the knit night for something to drink (Bananaberry cream!)

This evening we threw some steaks on the BBQ and watched Wild Hogs. Funny but stupid at the same time. I really just wanted a comedy, and it's the only thing we had to watch in that genre. Plus I heard from someone recently that it was funny. Worked on one of those 2 squares during the movie. I'm loving the color selections. Photos to come tomorrow. I think my camera(s) are all upstairs.

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the last day to order the Robyn's Nest October Sock Club. On Monday I will be listing the information for the November sock club! I'm very excited about that too!

Maxime slept until 7 this morning! Of course, he was up at 11:15, 2:20 and 4:00 :( (I have no idea what was up with him, he's been sleeping through his nights since he was 3 months old!!!) Stop procrastinating on the scarf! :)

I agree - Wild Hogs was funny but stupid. I was filmed about 40 miles from my now you've seen some of our awesome rural New Mexico:)

BananaBerry Cream? Oh that sounds soooo good. I don;t think that we have that here in the states.

g-girl said... you think you're procrastinating on the scarf because of the yarn you're using? I can't remember what you decided on. You better get crackin' on that scarf!

I saw Wild Hogs on the plane ride over to Korea. It was funny but stupid, you are right.

I haven't got my cheques yet (unless they are down in the mailbox now, but I have no idea when the mailman comes here), but when I do I'll be ordering those DPNs and probably some yarn from your shop...who knows, I might join the sock club too since I can't find sock yarn around here. I'm going to have to make a trip to Seoul to specifically look for knitting shops.

What a very sweet baby you have!Thanks for commenting over at Balkanstyle. The brown mesh bag is knitted, as I have tried miserably to crochet and have failed. It's the Everlasting Bag Stopper pattern from Knitty Summer 2007. Also, regarding the pink bag from Knitting Daily, the pattern says to secure the stitches at each end with super glue so that they wont slide off. The needles then are supposed to be part of the bag but I think I will use wooden dowls instead.
