My Autumn Post
Mmmmm. Autumn. In Colorado the days are bouncing between low 70's and high 80's. The nights are cool: averaging about 45ºF. This weekend the daytime high is forecasted to be in the 50's. I love these days of autumn where it is still warm but there is a hint of cool. Pretty soon the evenings will be cool enough for a quilt like this, but not this one. I gave this to TheKid's former girlfriend. This was supposed to be MY quilt. It's just a simple flannel 9-patch and snowball but I quilted it with signs and symbols from the zodiac, elements, planets and such. I need to make myself another one. And keep it this time.
I walked down to the city building to pay my bill and came back via the yarn shop. Now that was a mistake. I pulled a100g skein of Trekking XXL yarn (yummy) and two 50g skeins of this new Regia Bamboo yarn. Yes, it is made with bamboo -- absolutely delicious color. Can you see the flecks of blue in it? Here I have been trying to stashbust the yarn along with the fabric and I go and buy more. I am seeing a lot of Crazy Woman Sox in the near future. What are Crazy Woman Sox? Well, when I first started to knit sox I was asked "Are you crazy, Woman?". Sew now, when I gift sox, I make a label for them; the label is a fast one made with a word processor, printer, and scrapbooking paper. Sew in a way, I am also stashbusting the large horde of acid free paper!
If you are paying attention (are you?), you'll notice that my reading pile hasn't changed in a while. Well, I am reading. Currently, it is The Shadow of the Wind. I just don't seem to find the time to read like I used to do. I like to read. But lately I have noticed that I can't read when I am bombarded with a lot of noise or distractions, like the tv. When I do try to read, I usually put my iPod on some NewAgey tinkley type music for background and then I can read. Plus, and it is a plus, I just haven't had that many appointments where I've had to wait. The sidebar will change when it changes.
Speaking of tv, what's on tonight? The season premier's are starting on the network channels. CarGuy usually has control of the clicker. You know, it's that guy thing. But I have 3 programs that I like to watch and one has it's season premier tonight. The only reality show that I watch: Survivor. Let the backstabbing begin! This is a game I could never play so I get vicarious thrills watching this show. Blame my sister on this one, she got me hooked. The other 2 shows? CSI (the one in Las Vegas) and Desparate Housewives. Hmmmm. I wonder what my taste in tv shows means? The rest of the time CarGuy watches
wait for it.....
Car Shows! Bwahahaha!
