Calvin: Faces

Is it time to go home yet?

Man.....after we got out of the pool last night, I washed the kids' bed sheets, vacuumed and refilled all 3 fish tanks, tidied the kitchen, and spun a bit - all before bed. (Oh - and I mopped the kids bathroom....when you spill 5 gallons of water, you kinda need to. :grin:)

The dogs spent all night on high alert - not sure who was trying to infiltrate, since Danny moved most of his cows (cows = evil invaders) out on Saturday, but *something* was trying to go down, and my 3 brave protectors were going to do their level best to prevent it. Personally, I think their intelligence was wonky, but hey - what do I know? Maybe Dusty the studmuffin was really an alien in disguise, and they were warning him off. Or the leaves on the tree were plotting rebellion. Or...something. :grin: Maybe the pool filter was plotting a coup. With my 3 canine guardians of freedom on patrol, I can (not) sleep safe and sound. I do know that they subdued 3 corn dog sticks, an empty package of cheetoes, and a dozen chocolate chip cookies. :grin: Doesn't that make *you* feel safer?

I need some caffiene IV'd today.....won't get it, though. Got too many things that *have* to get done before bedtime....most of them *won't*, but that's par for the course. Probably won't swim tonight, either, but we'll see. Depends on traffic.

This is turning out to be a pretty good day!

Oh.My.Goodness! Mrs. Boss came in this morning with a prezzie for me. See, I am *always* cold; winter, summer - doesn't matter, I am very cold all the time. We have an acrylic sweater up here that is just...hideous, but it's warm, and I wear it All.the.time.

Well, I won't be wearing it anymore. Mrs. Boss has been cleaning out her closet. Now, you have to understand that Mr. Boss and she travelled - extensively. You name it, they've been there. Concorde? took it 3 times. French Riviera? Bunches. New York? 4x a year. Ireland? Ah...Ireland. Home of sheep. And knitters. And where my new, virgin wool ARAN CARDIGAN came from. :grin:

Upon examination, I *think* it's handknit, but am not 100% positive. It looks it - the inside has slipped stitches running up some of the cables. The seams have been hand stitched (it's obvious), and the whole thing is a lovely, prettty, creamy work of art.

It needs to be washed - it smells faintly of moth balls - but it's in *excellent* condition, and it's Warm. So warm and cuddly. :grin:

Gotta go fondle the wool now! :grin:
