Oh blog how I have neglected you…

leave a comment »

As I have been neglecting so many things in my life these days. My job and lack of interest for it has completely taken over my life.  So much so that I haven’t been doing much of anything for weeks.  I’ve been ignoring just about everything in my life. 

First off my friends, oh how i miss you three girls.  Amanda D called me 3 weeks ago and I haven’t called her back yet, i’m such a bad friend.  I totally forgot that Stpeh and Steve were going on holidays last week, and I didnt even know that Manda M was going to Florida!  I swear one day i’ll make it up to you guys.

 I have however got some knitting done (mainly on the bus back and forth to work, and the half hour before i go to bed and need to calm my nerves)  I finished my blue socks – both of them!  But I don’t have pic’s of the pair, but i do have a pic of my first monkey sock!

Monkey Sock - DetailIsn’t it purdy!  I’m so happy with it, it took me just over a month (eek, for one sock, i know!)  but i’m hoping (fingers crossed) that maybe i can knit the entire second one this weekend while we are camping.  I’ll give you the update when we get back.

Now i had a whole list of things i want to blog about (like the fact that there are only 349 people a head of me in the waiting list for Ravelry!) but most of them i can’t remember, and secondly I gotta run cause we are on the way up to the trailer.

 But i promise i’ll catch up when I return!

It’s been a while, but I’m back.

Man, its been so long since i’ve wrote a real post! Only one post in July and so much happened! Not enough time to catch up, although I’ll try!  It’s been such a brutal few weeks at work, working late, and dealing with a lot of crap, and there is an average of at least one person quitting per week – so we are losing people left right and center.  And of course nothing is getting better. 😦   Although on an upside, my strategy article was posted again this time in media in Canada – http://www.mediaincanada.com/articles/mic/20070803/risingstarlavender.html and I’ve got a bunch of emails from rep’s and clients saying congrats which does make the day go by a bit better. 

Anywho, on to some pictures – I’ll try and some up the month in a photo-montage for you!

 

 

Pic’s from a relaxing Canada Day weekend in Meaford & the Blue Jay Game with Jesse & Mel on July 6th!

 

Pic’s from the 50’s Party – which despite the rain was a big success!  Everyone had fun, ate hotdogs, popcorn, floats and did the twist!  Pic’s from Justin & Sabrina’s wedding – even when amanda and I aren’t trying, we still look hot!

 

And then finally some pic’s from my week with Manda, Maya and Steph back home!

   

Okay enough pictures i think for now! I think that’s an overload – although i’m Happy i figured out to upload pics from flickr since i think the wordpress uploading thing sucks – it takes longer this way, but i think in the end it will be better – no space to fill up!

Oh ya – I also got my first secret knitting pal package, some great sock yarn, in which i’ve cast on for knitty’s monkey socks – which are looking cool.  I’ve also been working away on a bunch of other knitting projects – which i’ll have to blog about later.  This weekend is crystal and dave’s wedding – should be fun, got a new dress to look all cute in – and hopefully it doesn’t look to tight and it actually looks good – we’ll see.   night for now  🙂
