I think 2007 is just going to be known as the Summer of Lists especially since my participation in Summer of Socks went kersplat.
1.) Blossom was amazing. We were planning on going this weekend anyways and doing our usual lawn/picnic deal… well then Matt got tickets through his office. Apparently they are bigtime donors. So the tickets came with an invite to the “Leadership dinner” in the Night Grove which was a seriously swanky event complete with an open bar and mini cheesecake. Love me some mini cheesecake. As we were walking in Matt leans over and says “Um… I think we’re the riffraff.” And I was all “Yeah… we’re clearly the youngest and poorest people here.” But sitting in the pavilion was pretty cool:
I’d never done that before.
2.) Big shout-out to the North Coast Knitting Guild! At Blossom I wore my Adamas and a very nice lady came up to me and asked if I knit it… and then invited me to join her guild. Too bad they are so far away or I might take her up on it!
3.) I really, really, really, really, really need a vacation. And I’m still 3 weeks and 3 days away. Seriously if I have to endure any more office small talk I’m going to go postal. You live in Cleveland, people. It’s hot here in the summer. This shouldn’t be a surprise. And you know what? We’re in the middle of a drought. Rain is good. And if you hate commuting so much live closer to downtown. It’s not that hard. I guess people just need to have something to bitch about. It’s really getting to me lately, though. Especially pre-coffee.
4.) Fantasy football related email conversation that happened between me and Matt and his brother bought to you by the magic of copy/paste:
Matt: Hey, Let us know what is going on with you this weekend. It’s getting pretty crazy up here. There’s at least 6 up to 10+ coming depending on your entourage. Jeanne and Andy ordered up a couple extra sweet shirts to be bought if you want one. Hope to see you this weekend!
PS. Tomlin made a nice debut last night.
Me: It's going to be funtimes... and the shirts are waaay sweet. So if i can I should pick Tomlin for my fantasy team?
Matt: Hehehe I love it! Yes Jeanne I think you should definitely pick up Mike Tomlin around the third or fourth round; he plays HC.
Me: What’s HC?
Matt’s Bro: Haha, can we please watch the women draft?? It would be joyous! j/k Tomlin is the new Steeler coach, so no, you can’t draft him
Right. Perhaps I should do a little more research instead of always getting distracted by my Avatar…. Eh.
5.) Morning Glories are quickly becoming my fav. flower ever:
In other gardening news – I finally grew a zucchini! Last year I got none of those…
Also the peppers are doing awesome. I especially like the purple ones:
6.) Purl 3tog through the back loop is the spawn of Satan. Not of Oprah but of the actual Prince of Darkness. It’s awful. So my Sahara didn’t get much attention this weekend…and therefore I have no pics of my decision on the bling… Instead I've spent any and all crafting time here:
Sorry for the extremely sucky picture – it was dark out this morning when I took it (yeah rain! Soak my tomatoes and water my flowers!) – but if you click on it it links through to Flickr where I added cute little descriptions of everything….
I’m almost done with the white fleece:
And then I can spin the fire.
