gorgeous yarn. It's here, and I'm itching to start the new project. It's custom dyed by Maggie of Dyed in the Wool Handmade, and she did a fabulous job! I told her what I wanted, and it turned out great. More about that when I'll get started on it.
There are a million and one projects waiting to be done, WIP's, yes I have two, not counting the comfort shawl, and the waiting list is getting longer and longer.
I should be happy, but that darn hormones wont let me be! It snowed during the night, as well as this morning. Everything is withe again. I already had my fun in the snow, well, the doggies did too. But, my thoughts are aimed at tomorrow, when we'll bring Biko to the Vets for x-rays of her hips. It's not getting better and even with Metacam once a day, she's not comfortable.
Another reason why I'm cranky is, that I had a horrible night. Actually it was the second one in a row. The night before, was like an episode of "America's most wanted". The helicopter circling over us with the search light on. Cars racing up and down the street, yelling, more yelling (how many ways can you say the f*** word, I think I've heard them all last night), car doors banging, and what not. Nobody knew what was going on, and I was loosing my beauty sleep.
Last night, we had none of that, but Biko was (cranky too) not shutting up, and kept my already insomniac son awake, so she came to stay with us. Sam was not happy and complained as well.
My spinning project didn't turn out the way I wanted, still not done with the second skein, but I'm at a loss, as what to do. This is definitely making me cranky! And time is getting short too!
Hm, what else? Well there are other reasons as well, but I've just now decided that it's enough for one day.
Here's something which makes me happy (I don't' do memes but this, people, is very personal): "Backerbsen" - "Soup Pearls" - "Knabberbolletjes" - "Pates "noisettes" - "Zuppa reale"!
The store where we buy European Brand names groceries didn't have them in month! So, when we saw them in the shelves, there was no holding me back. I had to stock up on it, because who knows, when we will be back there, and I'm 100% certain, they will all be gone by then. And I DID leave some for others, I'm not totally mean, even though I was cranky at that time already. (14 packages, 200g each - Ha!)
I DO share with my close family members, but they pretend that they don't like it so much, so there's more for me.
edited later: O.K. for those who don't know what I'm talking about. Soup pearls are no health food, but deep fried dough. They look like chick peas, but are crunchy little balls of dough; you put them in any kind of soup, where ever you like them. On the package they say you can eat them as a snack, but I don't' do that. I used to give them to my kids sometimes, when they were little and couldn't even walk, just to munch on something. They are ready to use. They get soggy pretty quickly, so when you eat soup you better shut up and concentrate on eating, unless you like them soggy. :o)
Anyway, my mood must have rubbed off, because Sam's been a little moody lately too:
If it were as easy as that for me, just stick the head in a corner, and sulk, until all is well again.
