You're(Not) Movin' Out Today
Are You Going To Deloraine Craft Fair?

Clothed Circuit TV

No, that's not a typo, or a lisp. Actually none of my punny headers are typos, they just amuse me. I need Clothed Circuit TV. Yesterday I was sorting out my craft 'stuff', in 15 minute blocks of time, into new tubs: habby, stationery things, Christmas material, Christmas craft, knitting, wool, sock wool, green/dog material etc. There was a lot of sorting. I opened the almost last big tub and there, to my amRound_and_round_the_mulberry_bush_1azement, was a carefully folded pile of clean Winter clothes!! Obviously, at this time last year I washed Winter clothes and put them away for next (this) year. I thought I was missing several pairs of green jeans and tops, but since my memory is poor now, I thought I was imagining it. Damn, I've missed a whole season of green jeans wearing time, and green tops too. I am wearing one now, even though it's far too warm!! Labels don't help either if you don't actually orient the tub to the labelled side, or then read the label!!! So I am definitely thinking of placIf_we_look_cute_theres_a_treat_you_saying my apparel under Clothed Circuit Television surveillance so I don't lose any again. There is an interesting clothes folding related video to watch here. It amused me no end!! I think I need to make one......

Yesterday it rained, it rained while we walked, we all got wet: we were all happy. Harki and Peri were so happy they ran around in circles and played for half an hour in the rain at the dam. It rained while we drove, I had to turn the windscreen wipers on: we were happy. It rained till after lunch and the air smelled fresh and clean: we were all happy.

Short_row_garter_stitch_beanie_not_4_me I have made a short row garter stitch beanie for Katt's charity bash, it matches the mittens. I have another beanies and 2 mittens to make as well. There has been no other knitting because I have needed time to recover from realising exactly how much sock wool I own. Too much. I would have to be The Luggage to be able to wear all the socks it would make. Two Luggages in fact.

New shoes. Lovely new shoes. Shoes with 3 different sizes: UK 4, USA 6 and European 37. I have noNew_green_south_african_shoes  idea what this is in real Australian sizing!!! The shoes are light and very comfortable as well as looking snazzy too!!

There is only one episode of this season of Stargate SG1 left to air. I am very sad. MrsDrWho is unavailable for TV viewing this weekend, so we will have the penultimate and the ultimate episodes to watch next weekend. I am hoping it will be replaced by Stargate: Atlantis. My favourite L&O returns next week: L&O Tilty Headed Man (Criminal Intent to the sane and stable). I am hoping to see Boytown before it closes. I am a fan of the D-Generation and their subsequent incarnations: The Late Show, The Panel, Thank God You're Here, Big Girl's Blouse, Frontline, Funky Squad, the travel books, Bad Eggs, Crackerjack etc, though not of Mick Molloy's Live Show.

Today I am off to Tai Chi (the warrior guards the gate and the maiden feeds the birds) and then to the Holman Clinic for a little infuser port action!!!

Loving Pretty in Lime. Me thinks I should make one to tame that Lime harmony sitting, sulking in a half made Green Gables!

Donna

I love the shoes! And I have a great fondness for Turkish Delight. However, I have no skill in the kitchen, so I think I shall forward the recipe to my other half!

Michelle

That happens to me EVERY year. Or - back when I was moving all time (like once every 2 years) - I would re-find stuff that I like, and thought I was missing.

Those cupcakes sound delicious, funny it was just the other day I was desirous of a recipe including turkish delight and chocolate - I'm going to make these with dark choc instead of white - posh xmas rocky road indeed! Thanks for the tip.
