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.
