Nothing to see here, move along..

Nope, still no knitting happening. Well, maybe tonight. I think I'll pull out the sock and work on the heel while watching Hell's Kitchen taped from last night and Top Chef from a bit ago.

I should do some knitting, especially since a look at the Make1 blog shows new yarn and gives me urges to go and buy Buy BUY!

Except I have plenty of yarn, several projects on the needles and even a spindle with some roving while I attempt to teach myself to spin. I have a decent stash, I can't buy more until I finish a few projects (and have a little more money, that's not earmarked for things like a car next year when I get my license.. yes I'm an adult, I just never felt the pressing need for a car and license until recently).

No yarn, no nothing.. I'll have to figure a way to get in and out of Make1 without buying anything since I need to put more money down on the retreat. I haven't had a decent vacation in ages. No relatives, nothing, just me.. relaxing.. Actually, I've never had that. I've been on retreats before as a teen though, and summer camp would be the closest to away without family. I can't wait, but I keep reminded myself to enjoy the summer and November will arrive soon enough. (I even booked that Friday off see how excited I am?)

But see? Nothing to see here. Maybe I'll finish that second sock soon.

Wow, most of a month gone by..

And I've done nothing.

Well, not nothing nothing, but not much of note. Mostly I've been trying to keep cool, playing with the new computer, reading (currently - you guessed it - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), working, and getting stuff together for driving lessons (next month!).

So not much knitting has been happening. A row here and there, and that's about it. I really should work on it if I want the scarf done before summer ends and to do my sweater before it gets cool again (though it doesn't feel like it will at all right now, just like in winter it seems like the cold will never end and summer will never return).

Ah well.

I'm going to go curl up in front of my fan for another chapter of Harry Potter and then try to get some sleep. But just for fun, here's this!

You Are Psyche!

You're curious and creative with a total sense of wonder.
Totally empathetic, you pick up on other's moods easily.
Just be sure to pamper yourself as well!

Happy Canada Day!

Wow, today has been fun.

We went down to Prince's Island for some of the festivities, made puppets, had lunch, wandered around, ate some ice cream and splashed in the splash pool (I was SOAKED!).

Probably won't get to the fireworks. After 4 hours of chasing around an excited velociraptor I'm pooped. So I'm going to pop in a good action flick while he naps and lay down and hope I don't go down for the count too!

Thankfully I have tomorrow off, so I can recover from today.
