Thursday Thoughts

This is what my head has felt like this week. It's a little bit better today, so I decided to be brave and come to work. Really I'd rather be in my jammies and a blanket up to my neck, but until that lottery pays off I'll be at work - and happy that I have a good job I might add! And a very heartfelt "thank you" to Tylenol Severe Allergy formula today as well.

Poor Joe. We were supposed to be able to pick him up at the vet Tuesday after work. However, I got a call late Tuesday from the vet that said his blood work was not good and she wanted him to "be their guest" overnight. They told us we could pick him up last night at about 5:30, so we did. Bless his heart, it must have been pretty traumatic for him because he whined and cried all evening, then woke us up several times during the night crying. It was almost like having a new puppy in the house. He seemed a little better this morning, but still cried more than usual and his face looks very old. Hopefully he won't have to have a vet visit again for quite some time so he can recover!

Here's a picture of what I have so far of sock #1, pair #2. This is the Peaks and Valleys pattern and yarn is Melody by Jojoland. It's great yarn to knit with, 100% wool (so we'll see what that feels like once I get one finished) and best of all only $6.50 at Woolie Ewe! Once I try on a sock made from this stuff and assuming I love it, I'll dash out there and buy lots more because of the price and the magnificent colorways it comes in.

Speaking of magnificent color, the sunrise this morning was simply stunning. I actually pulled over on the way to work this morning to bask in the glory of it. Then I tried to take a picture with my cell phone, but that didn't work out at all. So I will have to remember it's beauty on my own.

Oh the colours on your sock look so beautiful! Is the pattern easy? So far I've only done basic plain socks (on my 3rd pair)with the ss stitch. I know that one day (probably soon) I am going to try a different pattern that makes the sock look a little more exciting. Though I do find if you use a varigated or auto strip yarn the plain pattern can look nice.
