since the meds the doctor gave me very much knock me out, i stayed home on friday. it was cold (40, people! this is socal!) and i decided to turn on two space heaters. and shorted a circuit. after i reset the breakers outside, still no electricity in half the house. so i struggled to stay awake for a couple of hours waiting for the DWP folk, who promptly showed me another set of circuit breakers behind the door in my bedroom. whoops.
when it started raining shortly after, i was thrilled. finally, that quiet rainy day i was waiting for. i snuggled up on the couch with my blanket and i'm not there and started dozing when a loud PLOP startled me out of my half-slumber. PLOP, there it was again. PLOP, PLOP. yeah, the front window was leaking.
i "fixed" that problem with some electrical tape, a towel and bowl.
oh yeah, did i mention? b's in chicago.
so my other close call (so far) this weekend? honeycomb.
can you see how much yarn is left on that cone?! i was nearly hyperventilating as i finished up the back. i think i'll have enough for the ribbed edgings but it's going to be tight.
maeve was feeling badly about all my troubles - and the fact that i'm all alone on v-day since i had to cancel the party i was planning to throw (rock band + giraffe neck = likely another trip to the hospital) - so she got me a present.
four skeins of cascade 220 for a second try at snow white. thanks, girl - how perfect!
