Okay- I am finally posting. Work has been somewhat crazed lately.
First of all, something good. The lovely Bea at BaaBaa Black Sheep has a contest. She has great prizes, so go on over and see her. She is here- http://bea-blacksheep.blogspot.com/2008/10/presidential-race-abigail-and-augustus.html You will have to select from some choices as to whether or not her beautiful dogs can help foretell the election. Could be fun! Make sure you tell her I sent you!
Here's some of the weird stuff.
I sent Missie Annie off to Guides last night, and was all set to curl up with a book, or maybe some knitting, and then, IT HAPPENED. A power outage. Like a serious one. We were out for about 45 minutes (hubby went to pick up Annie, but the Guides were having a Halloween party and they figured it was all part of the fun!) (Surprisingly, Sean was the only parent who went over there to pick up a daughter. Wouldn't you think a good parent would?) So, we finally got power back, got Annie back, and I settled in again for a bit of a lazy. AND IT HAPPENED AGAIN! The power blipped, and then out for an even longer time!!! Poor Bear was in the bedroom when it went out the second time, and the poor dear- I think he was getting scared (and confused). All I could hear was this sorrowful "AAAaaaaaaarooof. Roof?" So once I saved him (I had to go and get him with a lit flashlight). I was the only one up when it came on again (I wanted to make sure the clocks were all set properly).
And then, another reason to wear a black armband...........
THIS is what greeted me when I put the dog out this morning! (pardon the pool equipment-we had taken things out to dry them out so as to be able to store them) And then it SNOWED. Enough to stay on the ground! NOT GOOD.
And I am bored with what I am knitting and I want a new something to knit. I am turning into a knitting slut.
This can't be good.
