So yeah. The weather hasn’t gotten much better ~ the temps have been atrocious! Heat advisories every day, thunderstorms when there isn’t a heat advisory… a typical Florida summer, in other words! The happy news was that I was able to sneak in a quick run earlier today – actually at 1pm! I snuck it in between thunderstorms, so it was cloudy and still rather breezy for the run. It was actually cooler running then than it was at 6am!
I decided to listen to an audiobook while running today. I haven’t tried that before, but I have recently become addicted to Doctor Who (more on that later). I was totally thrilled to discover that there are 4 Doctor Who audiobooks read by none other than David Tennant. And the one that I picked to listen to started off really very funny (especially since I’m a complete geek and have seen every Star Trek episode) with references to Star Trek. I must have looked rather loony, running down the side of the road laughing out loud. he he he
Wow, ok… I’ve been REALLY busy on the knitting front! I finished up the special project that I’ve been planning & working on with KnittyKnitterton! Woo Hoo! It turned out even better than I had envisioned & I am SO happy with the new pattern! The hard part, though… I took over 50 pictures trying to get a really good shot at the pattern, but it was really, really hard to capture! Anyway, the pattern has now officially been posted for sale on Ravelry here. Even better – KnittyKnitterton came up with a killer colorway for this pattern – and she now has the yarn & the pattern available as a sock kit in her Etsy shop!! You simply MUST go check it out – words cannot express how much I love this yarn!
Also OTN – still the Blue Jeans Lace Leaf Shawl. It’s a really easy knit & I have the pattern memorized already. I’ve made good progress on it, but it’s hitting a point where it’s really kind of boring to keep going with it. I’m struggling to get through the first skein still. Yikes! LOL
The last month of HPKCHC is this month. I started one project for one homework assignment, a crocheted scarf. I’m not sure yet how many classes I’ll be tackling this time.
My vacation officially started last Saturday. I’m on vacation for 2 whole weeks & so far, have done a huge amount of resting & relaxing. LOL Lots of sleep, even more watching of shows. An online friend of mine (hello, oh mighty pancake-less one) convinced me to watch Doctor Who again. I watched years ago, as a kid, but hadn’t seen any of the new series. So I started up with Netflix again & started watching it with Series 1. I made it about 3 episodes into Series 2 before the manlets got hooked on it with me. We’ve spent all our vacation so far doing little but watching Doctor Who. :D Now that we’ve seen them all, I’m getting started with the books too.
At some point, we are going camping to our usual fantastic place, Juniper Springs. We love that place!! :) I tried to talk the manlets into a road trip, take almost the whole 2 weeks to travel somewhere new to camp… but they weren’t having it. Ah well, it’s all good. Juniper is gorgeous, so I’m totally fine with that, too.
