Blast this doggone weather!

Posted by jackie blue on August 30th, 2002

Blast this doggone weather! The last real beach weekend of the season and it’s gearing up to be cold and rainy. I want so bad to swim and have one more weekend of sun, I don’t know what to do with myself if it’s nasty. I’m home too much with the dog lately, he’s so used to having me around all the time that when I leave he gets separation anxiety and pees in my house.

I think I need to clean, do laundry, and go to the gym today. Not how I really planned to spend the holiday weekend.
At least I’ll have a lot of knittng time, and the Guernsey sleeves are on their way. Well, one is. I hope to have them both done in the next week or two. The Surf sweater will have to take a break. It’s not like I’m wearing it any time soon, and with no beaching, it’s not like I need to worry about the Guernsey getting sandy.

Sorry I had to

Sorry I had to miss the Stitch n Bitch for the second week in a row, but I had a lot of fun last night with Betsy and Deb at the Cyclones game. We were blessed with great seats and perfect weather, and I even gave in and gorged on junk food for the occasion. Too bad they lost, but we had enough fun anyway.

This morning I have a Dr. appt. and then a ton of work to do. Praying the post office delivers an important part of the work which I missed getting yesterday. The next few days will be consumed with this, so not much knitting will get done. I was really hoping to knit out the beach this Labor Day Weekend, but the weather is threatening cold and rain. That depresses me so much.

I’ve been bad about posting again!

Well, yeah, the dog was a shock. I wasn’t ready for that kind of commitment, and I’m still not sure 100%, plus there might be allergy issues I can’t live with. I’m allergic to most dogs and although my friends went out of their way to get a breed that is “hypoallergenic”, I’m reacting a bit. A talk with my doctor this week might determine if it’s something I can live with or not. Problem is, he’s real cute and if I can’t keep him due to allergies or lifestyle difficulties, it will break my heart. I love my friends for caring about me, but this is huge.

Anyway, his name is Ty, he’s a Bichon Frise mix, and he’s about 4 years old. And cute as hell.

As far as knitting, there’s been little time. I finished the front of the Guernsey this weekend, and started one of the sleeves. I found out that my niece, nephew and the baby will be visiting the 3rd week in Sept. Now I have some pressure to finish this! I’d much rather present it in person and see it on Chani than have to ship it halfway across the globe.

On Sat. Marney and I were hoping to visit with some other out-of-town knit bloggers, but timing just didn’t happen for us. Plus the weather was pretty nasty. We ended up visiting a few knit stores on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, places we haven’t been. I was shopping around for an afghan pattern and yarn for my mother to work with, but didn’t settle on anything yet. Guess I need to bring her, it’s hard to pick out something for someone else to do.

Look what Marney and

Look what Marney and some other friends gave me for my birthday yesterday.

I’ll say more when I’ve broken out of my shock.
