Well, the Olympics are over and I’ve been just sort of feeling a bit funny and having trouble finding my normal rhythm. It feels sort of like a hangover, with less chance of vomiting and/or a walk of shame home in the morning.
I loved the games. I’ve never watched so much tv in my life. Example, I watched 3 hours of curling last Sunday. I liked it. Enough that I googled afterwards to see if curling is normally a televised sport. That’s really not me! Then, I was in Tim Hortons getting Timbits for the office (everyone, say it with me, mmmmmmmmmmmm), and what should I see? A poster advertising the Tim Hortons Brier! Dude! It starts tomorrow! Phew, I’m saved.
In other news, I failed to complete all my Ravelympics projects. 2 out of 3 to be exact. Which, as Melanie pointed out, totally makes me want to sing Meatloaf. I did manage to medal in Aerial Unwind, in that I dismembered a no-go Noro cardigan and in WIP’s Dancing by finishing a Lacy Baktus. The project I failed to medal in was my lovely beaded lacy fingerless mitts. I’m planning on finishing those up during the Paralympic Games. It looks like Team Canada is going to be fielding a small contingent of athletes.
Here is my semi-victory shot:
This was just before the closing ceremonies began with my flag, cider, finished Baktus scarf, and unfinished beaded mitts. Immediately after this is was back to the TV for said closing ceremonies. Who loved the giant inflatable beavers & hockey players??? I DID!
Since then I’ve been trying to spin at least fifteen minutes a day. Baby steps, right?
Currently working on some Blue Faced Leicester in the Myrtle colourway. One of the club colours from Spunky Eclectic. Very nice stuff. So wish I had more than 8 ozs.
While I’m spinning, Abbie the Guardian Sun Dog, perches on the arm of the other couch and stares out the window behind me in a menacing manner. Not sure what 13 pounds of Jackapoo would do to an intruder but I bet it would be epic!
Occasionally, she glances at me to see if I’ve magically made any cookies appear.
As you can see it’s very sunny here. It’s been pretty gorgeous most of the week. For the last two days I’ve had the front and back doors open in the afternoon. Hubby and I really need to get moving on those raised vegetable beds. The growing season is imminent!
