Knitting news: I've finished the first purple Charade sock. Will take pics after I've blocked it.

Beading news: I've finished a cabochon I started ages ago. Will take pics when I take pics of the above mentioned sock.

Good news: Our 'economic stimulus' check finally arrived in the mail. Hurray! We'll be using it to stimulate the University of Idaho's economy. Tuition time is coming up.

It's gonna be another hot day, with smoke. There's a wild fire in Spokane Valley that is mucking up my air. It's about 80% contained, but they're predicting high winds today. Lets all think good thoughts that it won't make the fire worse. 11 homes have been lost to this fire-which just sucks. I think I'll stay indoors. I have enough trouble with the asthma as it is.

Have a good day.


  1. I'm with you on Pushing Daisies. I don't watch TV hardly at all, but I found that show online last fall and became immediately addicted! Very glad to hear it's coming back this fall.
