It's been raining REALLY hard for many hours now. The front door leaks just a smidge, so there's water all over the carpet there. The cute thing is that Aslan apparantly enjoyed the sound, once he felt safe, because he cuddled up to me while I was knitting, rolled over onto his back, stretched out long against me, and gazed up at the ceiling, listening to the noises and purring. It was loud enough that the TV volume was up as loud as it is when GB and DSS are watching, which is when I can hear it at the other end of the house. Raining hard enough that Oscar didn't want to go out at all - I took him out to go potty, and he darted down to the back where he usually goes, dragging me along behind him. When he got there, he ran under the house, instead of going potty! I had to drag him back out, and he finally went, and we got to go back inside and "lay like broccoli." A whole evening of couch potato-iness....

Knit for a while with more of the superwash merino, playing with some color work, which is something I haven't done much of before, but would like to do, so I figured a little swatch of this stuff would be a nice test.

We didn't even walk this morning. Some of last week caught up with me I guess, and I found myself rolling over to both cats in bed with me (Aslan on the pillow, Trevor in the crook of my knee) and the clock claiming it was 8:30. Wow. And I could still go back and sleep another five or six hours quite happily. We'll see what the weather's like when I get home, and maybe we'll be able to walk. If not, out comes at least the Pilates video, and maybe the NYC Ballet Company workout as well...

Tonight I hope to finish that swatch, and then I'll go back to my Follies sweater... I'll probably have to rip back to the beginning of a section, since it's been so long I can't remember where I was, but it knits up pretty quickly. I'm using this yarn in a rich cocoa color, and putting it to this pattern:
but adding sleeves. Posted by Hello I've got the back done, and one of the front panels about halfway up, but that's the one I think I'll have to restart. The yarn is SO lovely, really lush and springy, and so soft... it'll be fun to work on it again, and I think adding sleves will make for a really lovely professional look.

And here it is Wednesday already, with me already looking very much towards the weekend, when Saturday is another all mine day, and GB comes home Sunday....

Thoughts for the Day:

Proverb - “I am sure it is a great mistake always to know enough to go in when it rains.”

John Updike - “Rain is grace; rain is the sky condescending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.”

Glad the kitties are enjoying the rain. I WISH it would rain here! I don't think it's rained since early March. Everything is so dry. I tried to weed today and there were places where the ground was rock hard from lack of moisture. Would you, could you send some wetness our way?

I know this is supposed to be "Sunny California," but this is ridiculous!

Keep up the workouts! I'm rooting for you!
