At last we have some slightly cool weather: it rained on Lorelai Gilmore and me when we were walking this morning. Still, it's warm..
Yesterday evening Uncles Dutch and Electric brought a chicken coop to be stored in the garage. Well, what a source of fun that was. I had a sneaking thought that I might pop Lorelai Gilmore inside. No need. Peri is very clever, she had a quick recce and then 'encouraged' Lorelai Gilmore to go inside.
After all the excitement of visitors, Harki decided it was a bit too much effort to go up the steps. When I came back from walking in the rain this morning she was up in the garage and had obviously investigated the new thing.
If you do this: ( does my bottom look big in this?)
And then play in the paddle pool, ad infinitum, then you get this:
One very happy, muddy puppy.
I have started the unnamed top-down raglan cardigan. There were no bamboo circular needles in the shop, so I had to have a Knit Pro one. It was a knitting emergency and I didn't want one from The BSODL(tm) It is nice and pointy, which is good, because the bamboo is splitty. Note that I have had to go to The Dark Side and use stitch markers, which I have thus far managed not to knit into the fabric. I have lost one, but it wasn't a special one. I will cope.
MrsDrWho*, Mrs Princess and Miss Mac invited me to join them for a very social trivia night. It was a lot of fun, very uncompetitive (no arguments or cross words from any people there) we had a delicious platter, wine and I had a cup of tea and it was Not Too Hot. Bonus: we came third and won a $25 voucher which will pay for some wine next time. We were flummoxed by two of the six topics; Cars and Sport!!!
Oh you can see where I wrote down our answers to check them.That's a banana calzone which MrsDrWho had not quite all of for dessert.
Plans for the next few days:finish lining the secret bag, make a toile of my dress bodice, I did adjustments yesterday (with Gilly's help) and drafted an A-line skirt because bias skirts and I are not friends, keep knitting my cardigan, buy a long retractable lead so Lorelai Gilmore can have a swim and catch up on all the Fringe episodes I have stored on my DVR. I have 200 hours of saved programmes to watch. I have 20 hours of space left so I really have to catch up NOW!!!
*Cateau additions proceed with some speed.
