This morning, I hit the snooze button to the point of insanity. I finally gave up and re-set the alarm for two hours later, intending to call in sick after the alarm went off. Well, that's what I did ... but in the two hours between re-setting the alarm and the alarm going off, I had a long dream in which I repeatedly tried to call in sick, but couldn't ... either I was trying to call in to work on my ipad, or I was using my phone but couldn't press the right buttons and had to keep starting over, or I had a strange phone in a weird holster, that had no guts in it. I didn't feel a bit rested when I woke up. I frequently have exhausting, busy dreams, and wake up feeling as if I'd worked all night!
So I took a sick day, and had a nice quiet day. I started two new projects (no I didn't finish the WIPs, thanks for asking):
A mitered square scarf:
In Cascade, and the book is 60 Quick Knits with Cascade. I make eight of those squares, then stitch them together. It's a quick, easy project, you just have to pay enough attention to get the SKNP in the correct place.
I started a toe-up sock with a crazy Zauberball. It's mesmerizing, watching the color changes.
I ignored the growing pile of WIPs on the coffee table.
I walked my doggie, and we befriended a new Rottweiler in the neighborhood. He (or she) is very shy, but was happy to meet me. I think it's an American Rott, very large and sweet-natured, and with a lean frame, rather than a stocky one.
I'm pretty sure we're going to be BFFs.
And I photographed two of my stray kitties, Momma Girl and Coraline, in one of their favorite pastimes ... teasing the pit bull that looks out the bedroom window of the rowhouse next to mine.
