I am not sure how it got to be nearly 3 pm. I guess this is what happens when you sleep in. I have to work at 6 and I don't want to think about it.
Really I should be working on making feathers for The Amazing Mazy but I am tired. I have been playing the role of most motivated person in my condo building all weekend and I am tired.
I had to call the gas company to get them to find out why the building smelled like gas on Friday night and then yesterday morning I had to have them come out and turn the gas on and then today I made them come out and turn the water heater back on. I just didn't want to have to shower at work and I have ths crazy idea that whoever turned back on the gas yesterday should have checked that.

Cat in the Hat- see just like Besty Ross Posted by Hello

Tuesday, March 22, 2005

just like Betsy Ross

I am working on making Cat in the Hat hats for Suessical the Musical. I am sewing red and white stripes together so I totally feel like Besty Ross might have felt sewing all those flags together.

My friends have the cutest baby. Yesterday I went to visit and he was chasing the cats and meowing at them. The meow is so funny, it sounds just like a cat that wants to be let in or let out. It was hilarious.

I'll post pictures of the hats later.

done in time

OK so my friend Barb's birthday is next week and I finally finished these fishnets.
OK so they were basically done a while ago but then when I stitched them up I realized that perhaps I had gotten a little excited about binding off because they were to tight. So I had to unknit a couple rows and rebind them off so that they would not cause circulation to be cut off.

the best $2.50 I ever spent

At the most recent 50% off sale at Savers I picked up a crockpot for $2.50. So for just a little more than the price of gas I picked up a used crockpot.
It works and so yesterday I made Sweet Potato Chili. This will probably feed me the rest of the week. Why have I never had one of these things before? How did I get so far into my life without a slow cooker.
Best $2.50 I have ever spent.

my house smells

so good. Thanks to the star gazer lilies that I bought myself at the grocery store last night.
When I walked in my condo this evening it smelled so wonderful and I was like Wow it smells awesome in here, why does it smell so good? Then I saw my lilies and I was like Oh yeah, I bought myself flowers cause I rock.

no pony pimping

Pimp my Pony day has been cancelled due to one of the creators being sick.

Although it would be acceptable to Pimp Ponies without her it would not be the same. So I don't have to decide how I want to dress my pony.

almost done

I am so close to being done with Barbie's fishnets. I just have to stitch up the back seam and block them.

Sunday is Pimp your Pony day at work. It is sort of like Pimp my Ride but with My Little Ponys. I am trying to decide how I want to pimp my pony. Maybe I should knit a legwarmers or fishnets for my pony.

I'll post pics of this event on Monday.

Who would send such a lovely pair of pants to Goodwill?
But what luck that I found them.
I have declared Friday "dress like a pirate" day in honor of these pants.
