Yesterday I had a lot of errands to run, so I got in less knitting than I wanted to. Today was a holiday, so I didn't have to go to the office. I was hoping to spend a nice chunk of the day knitting, but it didn't work out that way. (Of course!)
The plan for today was to take Hannah to the veterinarian in the morning, start dinner in the slow cooker, then finish the heel on Jaywalker sock #1. I wanted to have the heel finished and the gussets picked up by the afternoon. I wanted the sock all set up for some easy knitting while I was relaxing at the spa this afternoon enjoying a pedicure. This was to be my treat for the day.
Alas, today was one of those days where nothing quite worked out as planned.
There were little chores to do at home that I hadn't counted on. But, I did manage to get the heel finished in time to make my spa appointment. Then, I arrived at the spa only to find out that there had been a scheduling error. Somehow, my facial and my pedicure had been scheduled in the same time slot an hour hence. Nothing could be done to fix it, so I left to run a few errands and came back an hour later for my facial. No way to knit and get a facial at the same time, so sock #1 is a little less developed than I'd hoped.
Damn. I had really hoped to have enough done that I could try it on and admire my sock knitting prowess and my pedicure. That would have made a nice photo for the blog, eh?
- Brokeback Mountain just won the Golden Globe award for best drama. Quite the tear-jerker, and very deserving of the award.
- This weekend, we rented Grizzly Man, a documentary about Timothy Treadwell and his "mission" to protect a population of grizzly bears in Alaska. I'm still thinking about this movie and highly recommend it.
