There are many things I should and could be doing, but I’m blogging. It’s been one of THOSE days. It was a Monday of sorts, since I unexpectedly never made it to work yesterday. I was supposed to have a dental appointment at noon, but when MJ wasn’t there at 11:15, I called to postpone, especially since Dae left for a site visit and we had an audit at 1pm. Just too much happening on one day, but despite it all, MJ has suggested I try to get a hair appointment later this week. (I need it. Badly.)
Here’s my little sick boy. Thanks for noting it; I am sure that being out in the leaves (blown on Saturday, not that you can tell it) isn’t a wise idea, nor is throwing the ball (he LOVES his glow in the dark balls), but obviously, you’re not familiar with Jack Russells. They do what they want, when they want, or as Pop says, “He’s like Burger King. He has to have it his way.” Note the heavy “tear” staining; it’s on both sides. Sure, some of it is indeed allergies, but there’s more. That’s why I now get to keep a cough notebook. No SNOLs. I’m serious. My kind father inlaw – Dae – has been counting coughs all day, and my blotter is filled with time, number of coughs, and what Mugsy was doing immediately prior to the event. As soon as I blog, I need to find a notebook for said purpose. If the broad-spectrum de-wormer doesn’t do the trick, I don’t know what comes next, short of the wee camera into his throat…
However, I do have a finished object, one I can actually share! I’m stuck on this pattern.
Pattern: Doily Style Dishcloth #2
Needles: 2x #5 circs
Yarn: Sugar ‘n Cream in Midnight Magic. This one is much prettier in person.
My next I need a break from the lace thing project is going to either be a cozy for my ice pack or a sweater for Mugsy. I live an exciting life, eh? I’m sure I’ll start whatever it is tonight, because in case you live under a rock, it’s House night! That means I slip out of my meeting early (which is okay, because I’ll be there early to collect money for our endowment) so I can be at home for the opening seconds of House!
This is also your last chance to enter my contest. I’ll be recapping the most excellent favored charities later this week too, so everyone can learn a bit and maybe find a new cause. Also, I’ll share the thought we’re “pushing” tonight at our meeting; instead of buying a little something kind of gift (like a bottle of wine or whatever) for a friend, why not make a donation in her honor? Tonight, it’ll be all about the endowment, but it’s always a great time to support a friend’s favorite cause!
