Worm Grunters

Well I don't know why but my last post that talked about worms got quite a few views.....weird huh? So I think the same day or the day after I saw on the news about worm grunters, people who rub metal and wood together to make the worms come out of the ground http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/04/17/assignment_america/main4953135.shtml So those of you who came here for worms.....thats all I have to say about worms....oh and worms are good for the soil.





Yesterday went to Josh's 7th Birthday Party. I think the gift I got for him was a hit, it was some transformer star wars figure. It was the first toy package he opened.

First time I have been to Matt & Nik's new house....its very nice....and very large, they have 2 living rooms/dens, a dining room, unfinished basement, 4 bedrooms upstairs (1 is a master bedroom) and 3 bathrooms! I don't remember how many square feet Nik said it was, but very good sized.

Their dog, tank, is a lab/chesapeke bay retriever, he's 8 months old I think and he is taller than their full grown lab and still growing! But he is much nicer puppy than their lab ever was. Doesn't seem unrully at all.


I have been doing some spinning, have been trying to go through my stash and hoping to spin up some yarn to list on etsy or artfire. Its part of my destash plan.....I think I need a faster spinning wheel or more time....or maybe both.

I do have a lot of stitch markers in progress and some that are even ready for photography, but that whole time/motivation thing keeps getting in the way.

I am still knitting on my current pair of socks and still haven't darned my yellow random stripe socks....haven't looked for my yarn.....maybe soon.

It smells like worms

Today at work several people were commenting that they could smell the rain...and I then said it smells like worms. I associate long rains with the smell of worms.....you know when the ground gets so wet that they have to come out of the ground..... mmmmmm worms mmmmmm

Now that you are all wondering about my sanity....I never proclaimed to be sane by the way.

Get a look at this inspiration http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lp0IWv8QZY if only we could all remember the lesson those people learned.

Lost in the Real World


My guy visited me last week from Wednesday through Sunday. He and the monsters where caught in one picture. And the monsters were getting along at that moment.


My favorite photo I caught....


>:0)


We did alot of running around, but did get to go out to breakfast with Aime and John Saturday and met Meghan at the Dog Park Staurday Afternoon.

While we were doing errands I was able to get a bit done on my socks, they are just about to the point to turn the heel.


Chad took me shopping, he picked me out a new wireless router and now I can play on the computer from anywhere in my apartment. And we went to the mall and got me a new pair of jeans, He couldn't believe that I didn't have a pair of jeans.....they are ok, but still not my preferred thing to wear.


I have started a small flat of lettuce seeds, they are doing pretty well, once they are a little better established I will need to thin them out.

After Chad left I have been spinning and making stitch markers. I am trying to spin up some of my fiber stash and will likely list some of the handspun yarn on etsy and artfire. I just haven't felt the sewing juju yet.


I've also been pretty exhausted, I could have fell asleep at work both Monday and Tuesday. So last night (Tues) I took a nap when I got home and went to bed early. I also took about an hour nap tonight and plan to go to bed early. Although today I had a dentist appointment, so that caused me a little undue stress. But good news....no new cavities! A repreive for 6 months!!!! WOOOO HOOOOO!!!!
