It was a good run! LOL The coffee kicked in before I left, so no speed records today. I watched the sunrise, the sky filled with red. Other than the bugs, it’s a terrific start to the day. Now, off to get ready for work!
So I finished up the Noro shawl and knit the remaining ball into a long neck wrap/headband piece. It’s just like a long tie that I can tie around my head or neck. There wasn’t a whole lot leftover, so this is what it became. LOL
And I have not worked on the afghan from hell at all this week. Just haven’t had the energy or interest – I’ve made it the furthest in working on it than I ever have before, at least! The 4 or 5 different attempts I made on it before always ended by the time I hit the second skein of yarn. This go round, I am at the halfway point at least. LOL
So exciting events coming up in the H3Dakota household, w00t! The new Green Day CD drops tomorrow. The youngest manlet is a HUGE fan – has been for 5 years now. He owns every single one of their CDs. He has been waiting, waiting, WAITING for their new CD. LOL You all know what I’m doing tomorrow at lunch time.
Then tomorrow night or Saturday, we go to cut off his hair. He’s been growing it out probably about as long as he’s been a Green Day fan… hmmm – yeah, that’s about right. We’re going to pull it back into a ponytail, lop it off and cut the rest pretty short. The ponytail is going off to Locks of Love. He has been planning this for a few years now & it’s so exciting to be at this point now! Though it’s going to be really hard seeing him with short hair again – I really do like his hair long! Everyone seems to think that short hair will make him look older, but I’m thinking it’s going to have the opposite effect. Right now he looks about 17. And he definitely looks like he belongs in a band. he he he
We’re also going to Star Trek. They haven’t seen it yet, but I am dying to see it again. LOL Oh yeah, and I’m going to see Angels & Demons with the IRL BFF, too. Busy weekend ahead!!
