is not like the other. Can you tell the difference? That's right! I have the first of my swirl socks done and it feels amazing. Now to just cast on the second sock and get that done so my other foot can be happy! (And no, I'm not standing on Sumo. He just likes to be at my feet when I'm sitting on the couch!)
I went on a mini get-away this past weekend to Galena with a couple of friends. We had a great time. (Stayed up way too late and ate way too much junk food!!) We also spent a little time in Galena shopping and going to one of the newer restaurants, Durty Gurts. When this first opened I fell in love with their Shrimp Po'boy sandwich and steak fries. Yum. Then they replaced the steak fries with regular fries. I didn't like it, but I suffered. Now they have taken the Shrimp Po'boy off the menu. Bummer. I hate when that happens. Am I the only one that gets attached to one menu item?
We are slowing down at work and actually got fairly caught up by the time I left last Friday. I emailed my friend who I work for and told her I was bringing my knitting today. She thought I was joking..... (Won't she be surprised when I take out my knitting needles????)
Steve went to see A on Saturday and share his Antartica excitement. (I think he was also trying to weasel a 'chaperone' spot on the trip as well!) It still is mind boggling to think that he will be in Antartica. Not many people can say that.
We've had some warmer weather and the snow is just about gone. Steve got quite a bit of yard work done this weekend as well and it looks nice. Now just to wait for things to start popping up.
Sumo is loving the warmer weather and spends big chunks of time outside. When he does, he sports his Dogwatch collar. We live on 10 acres and 5 of them are 'enclosed' with an underground dog fence which has been one of our best investments. (We've had it for almost 11 years and it still works great!) Sumo tends to 'wander' when we don't put it on. Besides, he looks very handsome in it!
Off to work. Hope you all have a great day and a great week. I will spend a good part of the day trying to figure out how I can 'fool' Steve tomorrow. It's tradition. Some years I have gotten him really good!! I'll let you know.
Until Next Time....
