I am a bit done with the winter. I want it to be 50 degrees so bad. Not yet. Almost today, we were in the 40’s but not quite 50’s. It seems that the temps just hang and hang and hang in the 30’s.
And then I got all confused between Toronto and Ontario, which Toronto is in Ontario but Ontario isn't a town, except for in California and I’ve actually been there so maybe that’s why I was confused.
It was, though, St. Patrick’s day on Saturday and I will say that beers were drunk-
And I drank this one too-which was called Raging Bitch made by Flying Dog. I ordered it for the name. Of course I did.
Did I mention that the other night one of the dogs was crying crying crying about something. It was more a soft cry, not one of Lacey’s screaming cries. But we thought it was Lacey cause she has her fibromyalgia attacks and you never know when that might happen. But as it was it was happening at 2 AM so I told Dave to let her out of the room. So he did and we went back to bed and still the crying continued. I then turned on the light and we both got up and went to the foot of the bed and found that Manny, when he laid down and stretched out, his head slipped under the bed and when he woke up he was stuck. It looked sort of like this--
We just stood there staring in awe at him for at least a minute before I moved him 4 inches forward at which point he was freed from his prison and went back to sleep. I don’t even have an ending for that story.
Puddy has a new toy which she likes to get off my desk. It’s a weird plasticy starfish that must be just the right squishy cause she loves it. LOVES. IT.
Here she is pretending that it just suddenly appeared next to her when she was lying in the sun.
I had dinner with Laura and Mary a week or so ago and the only picture I took was this:
Do I have any priorities at all? Apparently and those priorities are beer.
I guess that’s all I’ve got for today. I don’t do much cause I’m out of school which continues to make me so very very happy. Very. Happy.
I finished some socks.
I actually finished those when I went to Stitches but just photographed them now.
AND—I’ve got the last square done for the Retrax quilt project-
This isn’t the last square but second to the last but illustrates the whole idea of the thing. It’s going to be quite large.
I’m listening to a new podcast called Throwing Shade. It describes itself like this:
I have to say that it’s over the top but makes me laugh. In addition to making fun of politicians and current issues. Cause you know I’m into giving most people much less respect than they deserve.
Anyway—did I mention that I have now registered for Stitches MIDWEST just this side of Chicago? Cause I can’t get enough Stitches!! Yep. In August. Julie’s going too. I am seriously excited to see what Midwest is like since I have only been to West. I think it will be a much different vibe and I am excited to see just what that is.
I have a race next weekend—kicking off the season with a 10K. And because of St. Patrick’s day I sort of missed a long run day so I’m not quite ready, but pretty ready. I think.
So—I’ll let ya know how that goes. I have mapped out my garden for this summer, and am working on my bathroom remodel.
Oh, and planning the plans for 2019, in addition to preparing for Scotland AND for December Weddings……
Hope everyone had a happy happy St. Patrick’s Day. (I hope he was wearing something under that kilt…)
