Ever wonder where the phrase "Cuppa-Joe" came from to describe a cup of coffee? I thought "Maybe it is because it rhymes with Cappuccino?". Joe and Ccino...
I am bored to the floor. Ew *inches closer to mysterious glob on the rug*...what's that?!
Ravelry has lost it's....novelty. It's really boring now. Although I get lots of messages and today I got an invite to join a yahoo group through a lady who has watched, and really liked, my Youtube fiber working tutorials. Warm fuzzies!
We visited a couple second hand shops today. I found two skiens of Caron cotton (I think it is caron) in red. I was so wanting some cotton to knit a face/dish cloth for my Mum from!! I saw a design online for one that said "I *heart symbol* U Mom". Althought the pattern is not free, I am pretty sure I can figure the pattern out on my own.
Then we hit Savers on the east side because rumor had it they were closing. They were and everything was 50% off! I found an old Karate America duffle with a full set of sparring gear that looked like it had only been used maybe once or twice! It was only $5 with the half off so I bought it. It had an out-of-date white and blue uniform in it along with a white, gold, and orange belt. Then I found an old attendance card from 1998 in the bottom!! Turns out that the foot gear is too small, but the hand and head gear is usable! I will probably still end up purchasing a new set, but this set I can keep at home for "sparring" with the punching bag. THWAP!
One of my teeth keeps aching. I suppose I will have to make arrangements to get it pulled since I have no dental coverage. *sigh* I also found more grey hair this morning. Cool beaners! I hope I have sparkling silver hair...none of that white stuff. I want silver!
I am putting together a presentation of basic self defense for my WTI (Wemyns Theology Insitute) group meeting that is coming up in December. We had a bit of a scedueling headache at the yarnshop, but I think it is all worked out now. I have been working on getting the stretches to move smoothly from one to the other and finally have that working. Then I have it all timed the 15 minute Goddess Mandala song. Sweet! It feels a lot like yoga.
I am doing so much going on December this year. I am going to the All Fiber Retreat that Susans is doing the first weekend of December. Then the WTI group meeting is the second weekend. Then my Mum is coming up to see me either the last of December or first week in January. WHEW!!
I am so sick of this demo I am knitting. I am ready to burn it. I have the pattern memorized so it is knitting up smoother than before with the corrections. It would be nice if I had time to knit on one of the FOUR projects I have sitting on the couch on hold since I started at the yarnshop. Sundays are my "knit on my shit" day. If I didn't set aside time for my knittins, I would never get around to them. And at that, I'm a bit peeved over. It's taking me ten times longer to complete MY projects than it has before. There is just no time for me anymore! Another thing I am peeved over.
Bartender! Slide me over a Long Island Iced Tea!!
Until next time...
