It's finally getting cold again here in Iowa. I still don't think we will have any snow by Christmas though.
I had intended to spend yesterday afternoon working on my brother's doily. One small problem. There was a rather loud woofing noise waiting for us when we got to my folk's house. My lil doggie/niece Dakota greeted my son at the door and damn near knocked him on his ass. Dakota is a 6 month old Labradoodle. Just imagine Chewbacka on all fours. She is a damn moose.
Well miss Dakota doesn't visit unless she is with her parents. Seeing as I want the doily to be a surprise, I didn't work on it. To make matters worse, I didn't have another project with me. Thankfully, I had a skein of alpaca with me and some dpns. I downloaded a chart off of Elann.com and cast on for a scarf. It's actually kind of cute. Pictures? hahahahaha You're funny!
The day actually went fairly well. I finally got to watch Clerks2. Very freakin funny. The kid actually sat and had dinner with the rest of the family. He had spaghetti o's, but at least he was at the table with us. hehe Trust it to my mother to make sure I was grumpy by the time I left though. She got all over my ass about applying for the job at the hospital that I now have through the temp agency. But now that I have it, she is pissed. Last night she kept telling me how hard of a job it was. That I probably wouldn't be able to keep up with it. I was in a traumatic car accident 13 yrs ago. I have loads of nerve damage from it, but I am far from totally disabled. She was acting like I have one foot in the grave.
Cut to this afternoon. Mom immed me a little bit ago asking how work was. What did I do, did I keep up, am I tired. Swear she acted pissed when I said I was fine. It isn't any harder a job than I've had before. The only sucky part was the chill from the steel door I was standing near. lol I was sweating cause I was trying to keep working fast and I was freezing thanks to the door. Such is life.
Anyways, time to go make some dinner. Then I better get my ass in gear on the doily. How the HELL did it get to be a week before Christmas??????
