Friday Fluff

Ahhh, the end of the work week.  So welcome, and they are even predicting nice weather for this weekend, before it gets uber-icky again next week.  So I'd better enjoy it while I can, right?
  • Thank you to all of the commenters who sympathized and then offered solutions for my sewing class dilemma.  I had sent a note to Laura, who owns the store where I am taking the class, and not only did she suggest fabric for the bottom of the dress as trim, but she helped me choose it last night when I stopped at the shop.  I am feeling all excited again about my project!
  • Hey, you should check out friend and cat-sitter extraordinaire Kate's new knitting blog here!  She just started blogging, but she has been a knitter for a long time, and has an excellent eye and touch for the quirky.  Jetsam and Pip said to tell her that they sent you.
  • Dear William and Kate - you seem like two lovely people, but please just enjoy your life together for a while without the rest of us.  Thanks and good luck.
  • Tomorrow we have plans to go the beach for the day.  I plan to knit, read, listen to music, and pretend I'm on vacation, even if it is just for a Saturday.
  • I do not feel sorry for (nor have I ever even liked) Rupert Murdoch.  To me it's a perfect example of you reap what you sow.  (The Tim had no idea what I was talking about when I said this to him.  Sigh.  I really wonder about him sometimes ...)
  • I have done pretty well this week, paying more attention to what I am eating and why.  While the Evil Boss was in power, I did a lot of eating to comfort myself from the stress she caused.  Which then of course caused its own kind of stress.  I'm nearly back to my usual, healthier habits, and pleased with myself.
  • Having said that, The Tim and I have decided that tonight we shall have a drink with every show that we watch.  (Which means I'll probably be zonked out and go to bed even earlier than usual.)  But he's had a stressful week, and I'm just glad it's Friday, so we can live it up for a change.
  • I am currently reading State of Wonder by Ann Patchett.  It is frustrating to me, and I am not sure if I'll stick with it or not.
  • I am loving my Nook Color, though I am addicted to the Word Puzzle and Solitaire apps, and sometimes the Basketball game.  The Tim is obsessed with Angry Birds.  I would be better off with it if it was only an e-reader.  And we both need lives.
  • Jetsam had his teeth cleaned earlier in the week. Pip just cannot leave him alone - I think he was afraid that Jetsam was never coming home.  Jetsam keeps looking at us like, "Really? This is the best you could do?" because Pip will not give him a moment's peace.  Hopefully he will realize that no one is going anywhere again for a while, and give Jetsam at least 5 minutes alone a day ...
That's it for now.  Have a lovely weekend, and I'll check in soon with a knitting update.  In the meantime, do something fun!

(Stupid cartoon to amuse you.)

I have one of the original nooks. It lets me read or I can play chess or Sudoku. I loves it.

I still want to read Bel Canto but I don't think I've ever actually read a book by her.

So what did you watch Friday night? Do you remember any of it? ;)

Rupert Murdoch is a tool. I just hadn't realize what a ginormous tool he was.
