Surprise!

Filed Under Knitting, Nothing 

Wow, I’ve been on a downer kick lately. But yesterday was good. Full of lots of surprises. First thing in the morning, step on the scale and see a weight I haven’t seen since I was nursing Alexis. Of course, then there was a reason for losing so much, and now I don’t know whether to worry or be grateful. I guess I just need stuff to worry about.

Work was pretty good in that I am about this | | close to being done with stuff about a week early.

Get home, fire up Quicken (which sucks for Mac BTW) and start paying bills. Yeah I know, what’s good about paying bills? Well, nothing usually. Usually it’s unbelievably depressing. You know, when you’ve paid all the bills and you have like $32 leftover? Ugh. But yesterday was a big milestone. Another credit card PAID OFF. Then, I went to check our utility bill. Remember when I said we had not turned on the A/C yet? Well we finally gave in and turned it on at the beginning of this month. I was expecting a huge electric bill. With the A/C on, and the pool running more, I was just sure it was going to be astronomical. But NO! It was LESS than last month. WTF? Doing all of this stuff really helps.

But then, there was one more surprise. In the mailbox. And this one is good.

See? I told you it was good. It’s a lace hand dye from Heritage Needlework on Etsy. 50% merino, 50% silk. I don’t know why I needed it, but I did. So now I’m searching for the perfect pattern for 1200ish yards of yummy, shimmery yarn. You know, because I have so much spare time.

And only one more happy note. Friends and I are ducking out of work to go to Alamo Drafthouse at lunch so we can see Sex and the City and drink at the same time.

    Peaks and valleys, I suppose. Hooray for peaks! THe yarn is swoony. How was the movie?! Don’t ruin it for me – I still want to see it.
