My knitting is coming along MAJORLY, due to listening to this book, narrated by the brill narrator I can't remember the name of. Oh well. It's a bit "older" than the first one (The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie) but still good. Caution :: Lots of British language if that bothers you. As for the jumper, hard to tell, but it's white and blue, and I've got the back (that's the inside of the back you can see, the other side looks just like the front of the side you can see) and one side front. The other side front is on my needle atm.
I am, ahem ahem, writing again!! Finally, at long last. I am working on Chapter 8 (hitting the point where all my plans trickle off and I have to actually THINK about the writing and the plot) BUT I am also working as of now on a brand new story idea I'm really excited about. I'm having a lot of fun with it. Yeh.
And, big news, I got to talk to my friend Jane in Britain face to face yesterday! Through Skype! *cue Hallelujah Chorus* Apparently she didn't know I wear flowers in my hair. I do, rather. See? :P I have that rose, a gigantic green Gerber daisy, a frilly bluish something (can you tell I'm not really a botanist anymore?), a yellow daisy, and lots of little white rose-ish things in miniature.
And I'm cooped up inside because it's literally sweltering out. I kid you not. Opened my window for five seconds to take some pictures and I couldn't actually breathe. Lately, we had a heat warning for our county with 110 degree heat index and 70% humidity. I believe it.
Very tired now, was up like all night with ideas for the new story, so... popping off now to get some real life done. :)
