I know, I know....bad blogger. I have been very lackadasical about getting on the computer this week. No excuses but I have a terrible sinus infection. Some days I feel as if my head is stuffed full of cotton balls. Well, cotton balls filled with ball bearings. But feeling somewhat better now.

Of course now it's supposed to rain for the next 3 or 4 days so that's always fun...not. Today was a beautiful day. About 75* and just fabulous. Went down to the park and sat and enjoyed the day and knitted. Almost finished with the lacy mock cable socks. They have taken entirely too long. But not much longer. Here's a shot of the little waterfall at the park. It's nice to just sit and listen to the water running over. Last year it didn't run hardly at all due to the drought so it's nice to see it going again. So far it doesn't seem like we're going to have a drought problem this year. If anything we've had too much rain. The backyard is still a slough in some spots. I found that out today when I went out to pick up some of the branches that were all over. There were some great big ones,it looked like a herd of caribou dropped their antlers all over...heehee.
Went to one of the lys here that is moving from the other side of town to my side of town (happy dancing abounds!). I'd never been to that one because I really never go over to that part of town but.......... they had a 25% off everything coupon and you know that it's just wrong not to use a coupon when they go to all the trouble of sending one. Plus, I thought it was a nice thing to relieve the owners from packing all the yarn. So 2 skeins came home with me. A nice tweed wool ( I forgot to look at the label but I will) that is destined to become a sock monkey hat for Amanda. And a skein of Trekking XXL for some socks for me.
Speaking of which, I must go and try and finish the socks. I am tired of looking at them.

What a peaceful looking waterfall. Very Zen. My sympathies about the sinus issues. I know how it feels.
