Our internet has been down, half down, somewhat down, intermittently down for the last two days. Its a reminder to me how much blogging and email is a part of my life….I found myself restlessly checking my computer every few minutes to see if it was back on (and it never was). This morning it seems to be back (although cable TV is down). I realized that perhaps I have a problem and maybe I should try and start reducing the time I spend online. Or maybe we should find something more reliable than our cable provider?
Friday – ahhh. I love Fridays. Once again, I’m working from home, so although I have a lot to do, I’m looking forward to not having to commute and being interrupted constantly. I generally get a lot of work done when I’m home, so it will be nice to offload some of the stress of “have to do that”. I’m also getting my hair done at lunch – very much looking forward to that. My hair is – I can’t even describe it. Definitely time for a cut. Its somewhat long now, and lately I’ve been thinking more and more about cutting it all off and going short. But I am so happy its finally the weekend…knitting time (you would think that with the internet down, I got a lot of knitting done, but since I was obsessively checking every 5 minutes to see if it was back, I really didn’t get much done)!
I ordered yarn from SeeJayneKnitYarns and it came last night….gorgeous! I expected a different shade of green but I love it.
Very soft, though – amazingly squishy. I’ll be buying yarn from her again. I also got roving and my April shipment of Socks that Rock club, but I’ll post those at another time.
Our dog, Duncan, is 9 years old…he’s a lab mix, and is just a sweetie. Last year, he started limping and the vet said he had Lymes disease. He went on antibiotics, and after a week or so, he was fine. So when he started limping yesterday, we just assumed it was that, and took him to the vet to get the pills. Unfortunately, he didn’t test positive for Lymes this year, and the vet said that its either a sprained leg (foot?) or it may be cancer. Duncan got pain killers, and we have to wait to see if he gets better. If he isn’t better in a few weeks, he’ll get Xrays to see if its bone cancer. I’m not sure why they just can’t do the X-ray now, but….Duncan is getting spoiled right now in a big way. We have our fingers crossed that its just a sprain. Cross your fingers too?
