Now Playing: Marvin Gaye "How Sweet It Is"
Entries are due by midnight tonight. You can either post them on the blog, or e-mail them to me at Baycolonyfarm@aol.com .
Thank you to my Secret Pal! My youngest son insisted that he hold the Rosemary Lemon soap all the way home from the Post Office! The other soap is Fig Milk and that smells wonderful too. :)
Anyone who knows me knows that I love scented soaps. My SP has done well. :-D Thank you again!
Lord knows where it is, but I'm determined to find it. I've seen completed shawls on other people's blogs. I desperately wanted to knit this a while ago, but picked a yarn which was hell to knit with and I ripped it out. So this time, I'll head over to Webs and pick up something more suitable.
I am resisting Birch. If I decide to make it, I'll use the Kiri pattern instead. It's the price of the yarn that is hindering this for me. And I'm not completely sure I want to knit with mohair in the heat of the summer, especially since I don't have A/C in my house.
And on a completely different front, my cousin Angela called me yesterday. She's been able to get me two passes to the "Meet and Greet" for Def Leppard when they are preforming in Brockton on July 6th. How cool is that? I've been a fan of their music since 1983, and Ang knows people in high places in the music world. I'm completely psyched about this! They have teamed up with Bryan Adams to play a "Double Header" at 26 minor league baseball parks across America. I'm a huge Bryan Adams fan too, so this will be incredible! I can't wait!
I love celebrating my birthday. I've long ago given up unrealistic ideas of what the day will turn out to be like, but instead, use the philosophy of taking it easy and just enjoying what comes. However, there will be steaks and drinks here later tonight, just the family and my mom (since I'm the one that will be cooking). And my mom and brother were nice enough to take me out to dinner at Chez Albert on Saturday night, a new French restaurant that opened up about a month ago. The food was fantastic and I'm hoping to go back there soon!
Marie sent her in ideas for several colorways, which is posted in the comments section of yesterday's blog entry. Please check them out! :)
I have some work to do this morning, but plan on taking the rest of the day off and just relaxing. The pool has been up for almost a month, and I've yet to get in. I think it's about time!
