I really should’ve stuck with my instincts and done a thorough cleaning job before embarking on my painting session last weekend. Of course, I didn’t – who me? Clean?!? – and I paid the price. There was quite a bit of shoving, grunting, cursing and sweating involved, and that was just to move the bed away from the wall. The end result is worth it though (or, at least the halfway result). The two green (ahem, Sagey) walls are done and next will be the two off-white walls. I won’t be able to get to them for two weekends (ed. um, no I won’t; I’ll be in N. Carolina) and then I will be ready to decorate – that’s even scarier! Time to dig out and print up all of those vacation photos that I want to put on display.
My Writhe socks are on hold because I foolishly decided to try to finish a pair of IK Padded Footlets for my mum for Mother’s Day. Foolish, foolish me. Not only do I think I’m going to end up having to buy another ball of Jitterbug, but it will be a minor miracle if I don’t snap a dpn. Yes, I said DPN. Although the very core of my being cries out against it, I just couldn’t figure out how to work the double-stranded sole of the sock using magic loop. I’m sure I could’ve figured it out eventually, but I was getting a twitchy eye just contemplating it, so I caved in and dug out the bamboo.
There are two United games this week and I just don’t know what I’m going to do with those boys. I love them dearly, but at 0-3 this season, I’m getting a little frustrated. Ah well, I’ve suffered through losing seasons before, I’ll do it again. At least my other boys are hangin’ in there – finished 2nd at Talladega after running over poor Casey (note: keep the 25 and 48 teams away from each other in Alabama; nothing good can come of it).
One of my "homework" assignments this week is to take a picture of a natural body of water. Great Falls would be ideal, of course, but as I am vehicularly challenged, I just don’t think that’s possible. That leaves the Potomac. It could be worse; I could live somewhere with no water at all. I’m still strugging with my camera a bit, but these are my favorite pictures I took while walking home via Georgetown earlier this week.
Does the C&O count as a "natural" body of water?
