Rain, Rain GO AWAY

Guess what! I do still exsist! Who knew? Lately, there have been several out-of-town guests. And lots of house-hunting. But really? I've just been in a really lazy mood these past few weeks. I blame the weather.


I got a new package from my secret pal last weekend!!!!

I would like to confess that those candy boxes are empty. Because I like sugar.

I loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove this sweater from the RYC book and wish to make it at some point. But I need to wait until I have the $$$$ so I can do it right in the cashcotton. Or maybe whatever they're calling their wool/cashmere blend.

Well, I bet you know that a few weeks ago, we got more rain than we could handle. This is the stream across the street from my house.

That was taken a few days after the water level had started to go down a bit. They closed my street for awhile because of flooding and the creek did take out a bridge and a bunch of trees, so it had to have been several feet higher at least for a brief bit. (Can we say "flash flood" boys and girls?) Usually, the things is only 2-3 feet deep, so impressive.

Here is Bitey the Wonder Gerbil enjoying her gerbil treat from my secret pal.

Chloe enjoys it as well!

I haven't been knitting a lot lately. I don't think I'm in a knitting slump so much as a "anything that's not lying around and watching TV" slump. But, the scarf is slowly growing.

I'm glad you're still alive -- I was beginning to worry.

I'm in the same kind of slump that you are. Even the knitting-while-watching-TV isn't working so well. It's more like "oops, I left my knitting upstairs, but I'm already here on the couch downstairs, guess I'll run up during the commercials." But of course I never do.

I hear that. Also, sometimes I'm like... gah, lace, too complicated. But casting on for a new all stockinette project is just too much work.

Knitting slump - bleh. Hope you get over it soon or at least do something fun in the mean time.
