in case you think I have been doing nothing but sitting on the beach- I have actually done quite a bit of knitting- new bag 1st sample, new blue heron cardigan (more later),moose dog collar almost needlepointed. However, I have actually done alot more SHOPPING! God, it is amazing…..
most ridiculous American fast food I’ve seen so far- frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches from Costco.but before you pronounce this the absolute epitome of laziness, consider that the crusts are off, the edges are crimped so the stuff doesn’t drip out and they do defrost quite nicely on the beach…. Actually, I am quite fond of fast food and have discovered Checkers which does sublime french fries( excuse me, chips) for about 50 cents. have not made it to Krispy Kreme yet….

A package of 11 canvases showed up on the kitchen table the other day that I ordered back in late November.I had put these down to lost and as I’m bitching about royal mail yet again- I find out my husband had them in his stuff all the time and hadn’t managed to notice the priority mail envelope was not for him…. even more disorganized than me, pathetic. So for those who wanted to do these last xmas- how about this one?
2 other really nice doggy canvases turned up today.
while we’re on the subject of nice doggies look at this outstanding picture of the debonnaire cavalier
moose-he gets anything he wants!

so every morning after my nice husband brings me coffee I turn on the computer and the next thing I know its 11-am not pm (thou’ somtimes it feels like it is) a year ago I got in the habit of staying in the bedroom to work as the construction noise from downstairs was so bad – so some days I am still in my pj’s!! gasp-
so is the computer a major time suck??//-what am i @working@on? here’s the list-ravelry pattern additions, photo resizing,flickr uploads, trying to figure out this blog stuff(too much time reading lorelle and forums on technical advice,google site stuff( a good couple of hours with no result), also need to source new needlepoint cuz if I don’t do it this winter it won’t get done, researching blackberry stuff in an effort to increase my productivity(snort…) the list of time suckers goes on
other things I’ve been doing- teaching,trying to finish cardigan, knitting hearts(don’t ask ), working on moose- the debonnaire cavalier’s-dog collar which is a prototype for my new belt finisher to leather up,3 new designs sketching out
and I have a family somewhere…
the weather’s been so nice that I really want to play golf- but that will have to wait for florida…..
and guess what, it’s 11:30.
