Sunday, December 20

Nothing but sunshine in Santa Fe.

I'm rather jealous of all the snow that the eastern part of the country got. I like big snowstorms! But here it's all sunshine. There's not even any snow in the forecast for the week. (And don't get me wrong, I'm all about sunshine too, but this time of year a good snow day is nice too.)

I had hoped to sleep in a bit this weekend, so of course I was up at six both mornings. Sigh. Oh well, at least I have more time to get stuff done.

The week sort of flew by, as usual. I was mostly busy with knitting, although I did do some running around as well. And I worked at the shop one day. I've been having a hard time getting anything done at home because all I want to do is knit. Knit, knit, knit. I'm still obsessed with stripes which is fun. I like finding colors to mix and trying to use all my leftover bits for a bag. I'm down to the last dregs of the huge yarn order I made in October. Only a few colors left. But no worries, I just made another huge order. HUGE. It's going to be crazy, I think. It's a little overwhelming to have so many choices, but it'll be good. Lots more stripes and new colors to use. And Rocky is going to be able to burrow in for awhile. I keep telling myself that I am going to take a week off of knitting so that I can work on some other projects, but it just ain't happening. Maybe after Christmas. I have some books that I need to study so I can learn some new techniques. And I still have to get the damn Etsy up. I am kicking myself for missing the holiday season, but oh well, it'll happen when it happens. I'm excited about getting it going and selling some things directly.

I haven't played with the Wii in over a week. There's just no time. And it kind of messes me up which is a drag. Last Saturday night we went out with a good friend of mine who was in town for a few days, and after some beers and pizza, we came back here to Wii it up. The bowling is great fun, but something about the way I throw causes me to get this weird hip pain so I'm not so keen to have it happen again. Last night my folks came over for dinner so my dad could watch the Cowboys game. (Still can't believe they beat the Saints!) They got a bowling game going before dinner and I stayed out of it. No fun. But I love that my parents actually like playing the games! My mom LOVES the bowling. And she rocks at it. I haven't even been back on the WiiFit since I've just been running outside. I am sure it is going to scold me next time I turn it on.

Today I plan to do a bit of cleaning, felt some bags and then it'll be time for Steelers football. Which sadly I am not that excited about. Don't get me wrong, I am not a fair weather fan. I know one has to take the bad with the good. I love the Steelers and will always love the Steelers, but I am kind of done with them this season. It'd be nice if they would at least win out the rest of the season, but I'm not going to hold my breath. It sort of seems like they don't care which I guess makes me not care. At this point I am looking forward to off-season changes and what not and a fresh start in fall 2010.

Well, enough of my babble! I'm off to shower and get things going. Happy Sunday!

  1. The cowboys beat the saints?!?!? I missed that news. Oh well, its probably better that the saints lose one to keep them hungry.
    I am hoping that The Bus has lit a fire under Ben's ass and that this game will be stellar. I'm also not so secretly glad that Kemeatu is out---he seems like such a penalty machine to me. Nice to see what some of the other guys bring to the table.
    Wish you had some of this snow! We've got more than we need. ;)
    Its really pretty in the sunshine, though.
    Hope your Sunday is fun! see you on the football text! xoxo
