Pk saw that it's almost done and asked if it would be done to wear to work tomorrow since it's so cold. I said that while it might be done, it should be washed and blocked first. (I really want to block it and even it out)
His face fell to the floor. I guess wearing an unblocked sweater won't kill him and he's excited about it so I'll leave it up to him. It makes me feel good that he's excited about it.
It is cold here. The air is crisp and when you look outside everything is so clear. I haven't left the house since Friday and have no plans to do so today. I sat in front of the window and spun for a while yesterday enjoying the light. I wanted to learn to navajo ply and I watched a video and tried it. I think I finally got the hang of it but it took an entire bobbin of slippery merino/tencel to get it. It's a bit lumpy in parts but the parts where I got it right look good. I'm going to try it again but not until the Giant Grey Sweater(tm) is finished.
We have been so slack about going to the gym. We plan to start back into a routine again tomorrow. I know once we go for a while, it just becomes Normal Routine (or what passes for normal around here) but getting to that part is hard. Mon, Wed, Fri are our planned days. Tues and Thurs will be harder since Pk is in class those days and has to work longer to make up for it.
I have almost finished last season's Dr. Who and I figured out why Matt Smith doesn't do it for me. First of all, he looks all of 12 and I have a hard time taking him seriously. Secondly, Mr. Tennant brought such compassion to the character. I don't feel that now. I miss that quality of really caring about what's going on with the people around him. I don't get that vibe anymore. It's still enjoyable, just less so and in a different way.
It's the best button ever. You push it and put in the weight of your frozed meat/bread/caserole and hit start and it figures out how long and at what temp to defrost your meat/bread/casserole. It's wonderful. I took some steak out of the freezer for breakfast (Pk is jonesing for steak and eggs as a last meal before the gym tomorrow) and put them in the fridge. They won't be defrosted this morning so I'll use Inverter Defrost. It's made forgetting to take something out for dinner a little less of a problem.
Gotta love the technology.
