All Day Long, or HoMD #35

Monday, February 4th, 2008

We suffered the final throes of illness today. I think we’re both on the upswing from here, but we spent this last day lolling on the sofa, dozing and watching TV.

The Husband took a series of photos the summed up our day perfectly. I combined them into a montage that I think is quite compelling. I call it “Awake – Yawn – Sleep.”

Wii Had Fun, or HoMD #3

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

Blog 365 lives on here at The Bog.

My BFF assured me that writing a post in your head counts as a daily post. I’m simply transcribing from this point forward.

Today was all about the Wii. To maximize Wii fun, we needed an additional Wii-mote. Unfortunately, not a single Wii-mote could be had for love or money in our little city. I know because I called six or eight GameStops, every Target, and a Circuit City without finding a single one. Until my brilliant husband suggested calling Fry’s.

Flush with the triumph of finding an extra Wii-mote, we came home and fired up the Wii. And the silliness commenced with the creation of two Miis (Wii avatars)–one for each of our cats.

Socks, Days 3-6

Monday, August 27th, 2007

It’s been a busy few days.

Scampers (AKA Hell on Paws) did some experimenting with water. He could not figure out for the life of him why the water kept moving away from him when he got closer to look.

We had a wedding to attend over the weekend followed by debilitating hangovers the next day. Strangely all our photos from the reception look a lot like this one of The Husband.

Regardless of all the activity, I worked diligently on the sock project. It’s gotten much easier since I managed to get the thing started.

Day Three — You can just begin to see the start of the pattern near the needles. Look closer, it’s there, I promise.

Sock — Day 3

Day Four’s photo has a special surprise. What’s that little bit in the front sporting white needles? Why that’s sock number two! I’m knitting a sock from each end of the skein now to avoid SSS (Second Sock Syndrome). A horrid condition in which the first sock is finished and then must wait and wait for the second to arrive.

Socks — Day 4

On Day Five you see I had to impale sock two to the skein to keep it out of the way. I also got back to work on the first sock.

Socks — Day 5

And yesterday, Day Six, I had The Husband try on the sock and make some measurements. See that yellow yarn on the left hanging from the sock? Well, I need to knit two inches more from that point before the tough work of the heel and gusset begin.

So are you riveted yet? Hanging on the edge of your seat? I thought so.
