I ended up catching the crud from my husband. Gee, thanks, I didn’t need that one.
It’s not too bad, just more of an aggravation mixed with the impossibility of breathing.
Thankfully, a variety of fun stuff fluttered my way to take off the edge of feeling under the weather.
We’re going to Scotland and Ireland this summer!!!
Mom and her husband are joining. It should be loads of fun. Somehow I was deemed the responsible one — sure guys, leave it all to the youngest one — and am in charge of planning everything. Flights are all secured and most of the accommodations and sight seeing ideas and routes have been planned. I’ll be booking them this week or next once I’ve settled the best locations in my mind. Guess that’s they put me in charge; I’m the obsessive one.
We chose Scotland/Ireland because it’s where Mom’s family has almost all of its genealogical roots — so we’re planning on doing some research like proper nerds — and hubs has some weird fear of traveling abroad. He has only been to Niagara Falls and to a Navy base in the Bahamas (so that still counts as American soil, right?), so I don’t know how much I’d really count either of those as foreign travel, even though he did have to pass through customs in Canada and leave the Bahamas. I figure Ireland and the UK aren’t too drastically different from what he’s used to day to day and he can find somebody that can understand him somewhere. 😛
That I’m actually excited about!
That’s pretty rare.
My uncle emailed and asked when would be a good time to bring my Grandmother up to visit. I suggested April or May, when the weather is nicer here. The date isn’t set yet but I’m happy about the possibility.
Mail always makes me happy, especially when it’s fun things.
Who still buys CDs?
Me. Totally me, there. This one is actually for L. He didn’t know it was released last week. Surprise! 😀 Now he can be totally up to date for when we see their show in a few months.
We have so many different devices and weirdnesses around here that it’s easier just to buy a CD and have a good, solid hard copy of the music and transfer it around as we see fit. Plus, it’s the only media our car will play so it just makes life easier in the long run.
…notice there was an “S” on that packageS?! That one was for me!
My yarn for the MKAL Grand Quest Blanket!
I tried to get the colors to turn out in the photo but gave up. They’re “Dark Rose” and “Dark Teal”. I started out wanting teal and ended up surprising myself with the rose; pretty sure I’ve made it clear by now I’m not a pinks person but I rather liked this one. I may be kicking myself after working with it for a few months though. 😛
I also don’t normally work with acrylic yarn (considering this is for a blanket that needs 4,000 yards of yarn, I couldn’t afford to not use acrylic); it tends to itch me to the point I break out, but I was pleasantly surprised by this stuff when I was poking yarn at Joann’s last week. Of course, they didn’t have enough in store, so I had to order it and pay shipping *grumble, grumble* — I will say I’m impressed that the yarn they sent is all from the same dye lot, so kudos for that.
So now I get to sit and twiddle my thumbs while I wait for the first bit of the pattern to be released on March 3! This is the first time I’ve blindly started a mystery pattern — normally I’m a fuddy-duddy and wait to see what the final project looks like first.
