Old business Updated: Love home-made teriyaki sauce. Made it last night and cannot believe how simple it is to make and how yummy it is. I've developed some food additive allergies in the last few years, and I love being able to make something at home with my control freak ways that I thought I could only buy at the store.
In my defense, I come from a latin food background and have a lot to learn beyond mexican food.
Kitty is doing well. Her vet called and gave me the news I've been expecting. Having an old cat is not fun. Having one that refuses to eat cheap tuna in favor of really good tuna just makes it more interesting but we'll be okay for a while.
In Progress News: Still working on the Alpine Lace. I have realized that I have some gauge issues and will be knitting far more repeats than the pattern calls for. The curse of the control freak knitter. I don't mind and I really do think I have enough yarn, so I'll live. Although, I am starting to look forward to knitting something not pink. Shocked, aren't you?
Idea for photo stolen from my Joan because I am not creative when it comes to anything involving knitting.
Btw, they don't make pink apples. Yes, I did look.
No, I did not ask the produce man. He already thinks I'm weird.
You know how the produce people put all the too ripe bananas in bags and offer them at a discount? I have a habit of buying all the bags when I see them. One minute, there are bags of bananas waiting for a good home and the next they are all gone. The produce guy has done the math and knows it's me.
Yeah, like no one else in the world thinks I'm weird. *L*
Shoe News: Do not love those cute shoes I got at Target last week. I wore them for a while yesterday and I wasn't happy by the time I got home. They are too tight for thick socks and, when it's in the thirties outside, you want the thick socks. I did try on the next size up before getting them, but they were too big. Falling out of your shoes is not a good thing no matter what kind of socks you're wearing.
However, I scored some trainers on sale yesterday, so I'm feeling better about footwear in general. When did this become a shoe blog? o.0
Well... kind of.
It's not even or sexy, but it's yarn and it's mine. Right now, that's good enough.
Blog Business: I want to thank everyone who so kindly listed me on the Make My Day Award meme thingy. I am very touched and a little concerned that so many of you find me funny or entertaining or whatever it is.
I will not be playing along because I know that I would forget someone I love, and that would kill me. Or get me killed. Ya never know in blogland. ;^)
Home-made teriyaki sauce and home-made yarn. Not too bad for a Wednesday, right?
I do need to cast on for something new because even I'm starting to lose interest in my in-progress posts. Not that I ever promised to be exciting because I know I never did.
Boring. That's me.
Boring, weird and cranky.
