happy yarn

Wednesday, December 28th, 2005

I decided to read through a month’s worth of stitchnbitch group digest emails and lo but what did I see? Mission Falls 1824 Cotton, my absolute favorite yarn, is coming back! I practically bought out all of the good colors from my favorite yarn shop when I heard it was being discontinued and I’ve been rationing my supply since then. Oooh, I can’t wait until it hits the shelves again.

that magic brown stuff

It seems like there’s all of 7 people in the office today. I’ve got my door closed and the music’s going, but I can’t get my mind off the coffee pot. All I want is a freakin cup of coffee but I know I shouldn’t have any in the afternoon if I have any interest in sleeping tonight. I’ve been very good about ignoring caffiene today; just a half cup of coffee this morning and 3 32oz bottles of water (thank heavens I got all the mold out of my Nalgene bottle) but I want more.

go ahead, look at me funny

This is my winter hat.
winter hat
I love it. Other people probably think I look pretty silly in it but I love it. I think that part of what I love is it’s sillyness. It is a nice, warm hat. It covers my ears and it makes me very happy.
Too bad it’s going to be 50F here this weekend.

I upgraded my gallery installation to 2.x. Let’s just say I’m still getting used to it. The new version has several fine qualities but it’s very different than before.

More than one tree, is my guess

I am completely overwhelmed by reading material. I spent hours this morning catching up on three weekends worth of the New York Times and made a significant dent, just a few sections from yesterday left. However, that doesn’t take into account the 8 NYT book review sections, 14 NYT magazines plus a generous handful of travel sections. Beyond the paper I have 3 books from the library that I’ve yet to read and numerous food magazines. I’m finally caught up with the mail and the bills but I’m taken aback at the amount of paper in our house. We’re just two people; I can only imagine what it’s like for a larger family. The recycling bin will be full this week.
