Friday! It’s Friday!

Woo hoo!  It’s Friday!  Not that it matters a whole lot, I’ll be working some this weekend anyway.  LOL

So the couch arrived, w00t!  It needs a wee bit of repair, but overall it is in excellent shape.  I bought the old couch for $100 and it’s lasted a couple years.  Of course, it would have lasted much longer except for getting stomped on & jumped on by a certain 200 lb sharp clawed party.  Anyway, this is the gem – found it for only $150, which is a real bargain!  Both ends recline & it’s all leather.  We’re trying to keep the canine crew off it, but if they sneak onto it, at least it will withstand the paws.  :D

For once, Leonardo didn’t jump into the shot.  LOL  He was busy leaning on me at the time.  And yeah, it took about 30 seconds for the oldest manlet to declare that this couch is teh awesome.  ;)

Speaking of the oldest…  he has been really fascinated the past few months with graffiti art.  He’s actually gotten really pretty good at it (with markers on paper, btw)!  I had to ban him from the spray cans because he oversprayed my car.  he he he  Anyway, in the course of researching the various artists online, he has found some truly impressive videos out on YouTube.  Here is just one sample – outright AMAZING, isn’t it?! (I know this one isn’t graffiti – I’ll post some of his other finds in another blog entry!)

Running

Blech, no running accomplished this week.  *sigh*  One thing after another, but overwhelming number of days where I woke up with a headache.  grrrr!

Knitting

BUT ~ when I do get ready to run, I’m all set with the new iPod!  :D  I finished up my Runner’s Companion project pretty quickly.  I’m not too sure about the yarn I used – I’m thinking a good sock yarn might have been better, especially since wool has a fantastic wicking benefit to it.  I’ll know more after the first couple of runs, I think!  Anyway, here it is!

Ok, so it's really hard to take pics of your own arm! Here's one of the reject shots. LOL!

The finished product!  I made it a little bigger than called for because I wanted it on my upper arm instead of my forearm.

Today’s Ravelry Search

So believe it or not, “couch” actually did turn up some results!  Not enough to have some fun here, though, so I tried something else instead.

Anyone reading my blog already knows how I feel about pineapple patterns!  YUM!

    I had to rewind the spray-paint art work video clip and watch it again after seeing what they created in 60 seconds. Cool.
