Today was Muffins for Mommy at the boys' school. We had fun. The little guy did not want me to go. He wanted me to stay and play with the rest of the four year olds. Not today. But we will have an adventure on Monday I promised.
The girl is tired. I have circles under my eyes. I feel like I've been run over by a truck. Pure system overload. It must be everything. The pent up stress of waiting for the bar exam results. Traveling almost every week. Being sick on the cruise. Trying not to be a mad, screaming mom, and throw in there - allergy season. And to top it off, leaving my Mandarin jacket back on the cruise ship. I'm exhausted. All I want to do is sleep. No late night knitting, except of course Tuesday night when I threw something up on needles for Cassidy, and am still working at how this will turn out. (I am not posting what this is).
But I am so tired. This is a new stole I am working on. The picture does not do the yarn justice. We are talking beautiful Mexican fiesta colors of yellow, orange, teal and red. Fleece artist handpaint.
Me, Joanne, Sherry and Sharon on the first day of the cruise. In the bar. Getting drinks. I am not sick. Yet. Where's the yarn?
Here is a picture from Butchart Gardens, one of the most beautiful places in Canada. Did you know this was once a rock quarry? What a labor of love for Mrs. Butchart. She hung off of the walls of the quarry in a bucket type device, planting the many plants you see. Just gorgeous. I've seen this garden in the Summer (the roses are unbelievable) and now the Spring. Go to Victoria and see this garden.
Here is another new little something, the shawlette from Interweave Spring. Isn't this yarn pretty? It has a slight halo to it, there must be mohair in it, I'd tell you but if I go upstairs to get the label, I'm taking a nap, so either way, I guess we won't know until later.
It's going to be eighty degrees outside today. Wow. And the sky is such a clear, clear blue. My lilacs are blooming. Oh how I wish you could smell them. I'm taking a nap. I know it's only 10AM, but I'm going back to bed.
