Friends still very good.
Finished the orange "for ME" mittens and realized they weren't mine after all.
On the up side, my mother's October birthday is now covered.
(Knitting Gods aren't letting me knit for myself currently; that's fine by me.)
Started the mittens for Eldest and they're turning out great.
Jersey house "remediation" unexpectedly larger and more expensive. Tenants (rightfully) furious.
Work still sucky and busy and annoying.
Discovered Barbara Kingsolver and fell completely totally head-over-heels in love with Prodigal Summer. I can't remember when I last liked a book that much.
Made one really good loaf of bread and one okay-to-good loaf over the weekend. Had forgotten how primal and soothing that can be. Oh and King Arthur flour IS better than Gold Medal or Pillsbury.
Cleared off the fancy dining room table and laid out a jigsaw puzzle for the first time in over a year.
Found another giant fennel root at the grocery.
Work still wretched.
Discovered that Wii is every bit as fun as the hype suggested. OH is it ever...and healthy too. Nintendo is going to get rich saving the lives of fat technologically advanced kids and I approve. The "boxing" alone rocks...doesn't feel like excercise at all but I worked up enough of a sweat to feel it a bit at the edges today.
One of my lab techs grows flowers and gave me my annual bouquet...yes I took pix which I'll post eventually.
