Things that are Hard to Believe

1. It was 65 degrees yesterday. January 31st. There are days when I miss New England to the very depths of my soul. And then there are days like yesterday.

2. We are 1/12th of the way to 2010, at which point we can dispense with saying "two-thousand blah dee blah blah". It will just be "twenty-ten". Sweet.

3. I have not spun anything today, and in fact I still have not even plied the second skein of Cardinal Vash the Stampede! All in the name of Henley. Sleeve #1 is half done.

4. I think I may be turning into a plain old vanilla stockinette person. Doing all that stockinette on the lower sleeve yesterday was really nice. I was surprised.

5. Our California state income tax refunds may be held up because of the state government's inability to balance a budget. Luckily my state refunds tend to be small to non-existent. Still, really?

6. I have taken to drinking Kahlua and milk. Actually, that isn't all that hard to believe.

7. I have ordered a pound of fiber with which to spin and then knit a vest. Call the men in the white coats.

8. Spring is on the way. At least, it is here.

Trees behind my office park, Friday. Would you look at that sky?

No, I don't know what they are either.

1 pound? to spin on a spindle? Oh yeah. I'm scared.

Dude. It's been in the lower 80's here. I hates it, but what should I expect?

Mimosas!!!! When I lived in Montenegro (to be precise, montenegrian coast) february was the month of mimosas and they were growing everywhere. Today, if I wanna mimosas - I have to pay quite a prise and they alway "die" the other day!
Memories!
