A cold lazy day!


Sunday, September 18, 2011

Hi all,

When I woke this morning after getting my usual 6 hours of sleep and still feeling tired i stayed in bed for another 30 minutes. I wanted to stay snuggled in my bed to keep warm but I knew I had to get up and get some stuff done. So I got dress in my sweat pants and pullover and thick socks. It was cold in my apartment.

I left a message with the landlord to see if she can turn on the heat, still waiting. She normally doesn't turn it on until everyone complains and still waits till the end of September.

I had to dig out my space heater, thankfully the sun came out for awhile and warmed up my place a bit.

I spent the rest of the day on the couch under a blanket knitting and trying to finish mom's sweater, I have the button hole band left to make and sew on. I did work on the sock Giraffe for a bit and then spent 3 hours catching up on sparks.

Now it is evening time and I am just now finished up on my sparking. Now I am going to watch TV for a bit, make Mac n Cheese with Cauliflower and Tuna for John when he come home from work at 12:30pm tonight. Then I will go to bed.

I finally called my mom and told her the news about my new job and she was so happy that she started to cry. I was shocked, I didn't expect this reaction from my mom of all people. I guess she is starting to turn a corner to be a proper mother.

We shall see. It did make me feel good.

I also got an email from a stranger today who sent me a pattern for a monkey: Curious George with a Banana. She didn't say if she wanted me to make it up for her. In fact there was no message attached. I did write and thanked her for the pattern and told her that I can't wait to knit it up.

I shall see if she writes back to me.

here is the picture she sent me:



I think he is so cute.

Well that is my lazy day, time to get off the computer and go lie on the couch and watch a bit of TV, rest my eyes and hands.

Have a great night!

    So glad they finally turned the heat on, what were they thinking, let the water freeze in the pipes first?? Glad you had an easy day, you will appreciate them more when you start full time work.. That would be awesome that George..
Have a great week!

    I'm glad you were able to keep a little warm. Sounds like a nice day otherwise. Curious George is very cute...you'll do a fabulous knit up.

    Yes, the days are growing shorter and temps are going down. Time to get the fall and winter clothes out, and close the patio doors. Glad Mom was happy for you - Mom's are difficult at times, but isn't it great when they surprise you.

    It's always weird to read about weather in other places. To think you're cold while I'm running the room cooler! The last few years, our autumn has been hotter than summer,
so it will be a while before I need to add more blankets to the bed...

Enjoy your day!

    I like lazy days as well, curled up under a blanket watching a movie, or sitting doing some cross stitch. Have a great day today
