The List Goes On

Posted on by .

How many ways can I complain about having a cold?  Ask Paul.  Especially because now he has it!  According to someone in the know (my doctor), this is just a virus.  A virus that seems to be lasting a loooooooong time (10 days so far).  So, you are getting a continuation of the list from the last post……:

8) It snowed a lot the day before Thanksgiving:


9) The next day, Thanksgiving, it was pretty:


10) On Thanksgiving, Paul and I did not go to the Boston area to see my family as planned.  Instead we were both on the couch, feeling unwell, and we ate pancakes for our dinner.  I made my sweet potato casserole too but it came out crappy.  (Good thing I didn’t bring it to the family dinner!)  And no pie.  And we missed the creation of, and eating of, this:

(Thanks Aunt Christine – I swiped this from your Facebook page!)

11) On the plus side, while hanging out on the couch for all this time, I was able to get back into some Christmas knitting:

I might actually be in good shape with getting my list knitted on time. (Knock on wood).  And the time on the couch gave us a good start to our Month-of-Watching-Sappy-Lifetime-Christmas-Movies.

12) Luckily, I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with this thing.  I went to work at the yarn shop yesterday but needed a nap when I got home.  Paul is not there yet.

13) This is my last post involving complaints about my cold.  I’m hoping to have lots of pictures of blocked knitting to show you next time!

14) Couldn’t end the list with unlucky #13.

My Latest Obsessions

Posted on by .

I have been totally obsessed with Lollipop Yarns on Etsy, and getting one of these balls of sock yarn.  Here is a picture from the website:

Go to the website to see pictures of how these knit up.  So cool.  But, they are so popular, that when she puts more in her shop, they sell out immediately.  The next update to her shop is… wait. I’m not going to make it easy for you, since then I’ll have more competition.  Find out for yourself.  Suffice it to say, I put it on my calendar will be at my computer, trying to get one!  Because I need more yarn.  Especially sock yarn. [Insert sarcasm font here.]

Second obsession?  Christmas movies that are playing around the clock on the Lifetime and Hallmark channels.  Paul and I have been watching them any time there is nothing else on tv.  It’s been going on for about two weeks now, and (so far) we have not gotten sick of them yet.  However, we have gotten to the point of, “Oh, we’ve seen that one already” and then check the other channel.

Third Obsession?  Candy Crush Saga.  Those of you who play, know.  I even broke my don’t-pay-for-any-games-because-then-you’ll-pay-for-all-the-games rule. I paid 99 cents to continue playing. Otherwise I would have had to wait 3 days.  [Have we talked about my problem with impaitience?]

Oh! And I finally remembered to take a picture of the next travelling sock I did:


Two more sets of socks coming my way and then I’ll get my finished socks in the mail.  I can’t wait!
