Saturday! In the park. I think it was the fourth of July.

One of these days I'll have to take a picture of my husband's stash of yarn. He's become a bit of a Knitting Freak. It's very charming, actually. And truthfully, I'm a bit jealous. We both wanted to learn the hobby and while I've picked it up pretty easily (it's really not that hard to learn in case you were wondering), he keeps on knitting and I just sit in marvel.

I want to learn to make baby blankets and booties and sweaters and such. You know, for everyone else's baby. :D :P

But you can't really just jump right into whatever you want. I mean, I suppose you could if you wanted to but I don't think the end result would be something you'd want to give someone as a gift. That means in order to get to make the things you want to make, you need to start with the smaller, easier things. Like scarves. And as much as I like a good, warm, neat-looking scarf for these cold winter months, there's only so many scarves a person can have. Like two, maybe. Two's a good numbers of scarves to have... not 10. :)

Ah, my husband. He always puts a smile on my face. It doesn't matter how shitty I'm feeling, he can always make me smile. And if not, he's got amazing lips to suck on to make me feel better.


Today we have to show the condo to someone. Yeah, it's been almost two years of throwing away a mortgage for something that's sitting empty. And with two months left on our (his) lease, either the condo needs to get rented - now - or we're moving back when the lease is up in two months. I've put my foot down.

Anyhow, I'm excited. The condo is located about 30 miles from here, out in the suburbs. And the suburbs is home to malls and those dreary chain restaurants. Do you know what that means? Do you?



Sometimes it truly is the little things that you need to focus on.

We're also going to go see the new movie, Taken which looks crazy - especially the scene where whatshisname stabs someone's thighs with two knitting needles. And since we're (he's) on a knitting kick, we just have to see it (and so help me god if there's a pregnant bitch in this one).

Like I said, it's the little things. :)

Red Robin and Taken here we come!

Maybe you can knit out your frustrations? :-)

Enjoy your Red Robin. I've never been, but maybe someday I'll haul myself out to the nearest one.
