I realize, after rereading the last few posts, that I probably seem like a depressed human being all the time. But I have some really great people in my life, some new, some old, that have helped me, listen to me bitch, & gave me such great support over the last month. Granted, life is no bowl of cherries – the AUM still is trying to break me, my personal life is a pendulum swinging back & forth, and I still feel like a fat ugly cow a good part of the time. And those are what I write about. Sunny happy posts haven’t been my thing of late. So I wanted to send out love & happy vibes to my friends far & near (most of whom don’t read this) while I am full of marguaritas (blackberry – yum) & mexican food and enjoying the summer weather we’ve had in PDX this week.

(Note to self, be sure to put sunscreen on when enjoying previous items – ouch)

Knitting has been slow, but I’m done with the body of the BH Picovoli. No photos (yeah, I’m surprised I can actually work this computer in my state. Plus, borring.) but I’ve started the bottom lace bit. Should be finished this week – it’s actually supose to rain on my weekend (boo) but I will have the complete Deadwood first season dowloaded by then, plus I have the entire Ken Burns Jazz dvd set to watch, minus the two discs I watched last night.

Then maybe I’ll start with the KnitPicks Shine Worsted. I want to do another cardigan because I live in mine at work – I wear tanktops with the cardi over it, then I can take it off when the work day is over. Maybe a shorter sleeved one. Hmmm…now the pattern to use….

Anyway, much thanks to all who still check this blog even with my sad, angry, non knitting posts. I love StatCounter – it makes me feel loved. Although…a bit of a stalker.
