A few things…

First an answer:

For Anon who left a comment the other day: Tish is using STR Medium Weight – color is Knitty Rocks.

I need to find that e-mail notification thingy they have ob Blogger now so I can get back to people in a timely manner.


OMG I am so bored at work it isn’t even funny! If I sat somewhere not in the public eye, I’d be knitting with my back to the door. If only I could be like IFTish. She can be on a string of conference calls and if she doesn’t have to brow beat them into submission, she sometimes sits and knits.

This is how bored I am. More plant pictures.

This tulip plant was given to me on Monday by another friend here in the office who’s last day was today. L If she didn’t find something before the end of the month, then she was going to be laid off. She found something so good for her!

We’re going to be getting a lot of work in the next few weeks. We have a major submission to a state agency which will involve putting together 12 copies of 7 different binders. Yup – 84, 3” binders. That’s going to be a pain in the butt, but at least we’ll be busy then.

Did I ever show you where I work on Wednesdays when I go to the client site? This picture was taken from Google Earth, so I’m not showing you anything that anyone else can see. They tend to get a little hinkey about taking personal photos there.

I do drive right by a whole bunch of oil tanks to get to the field office. It has got to the point where if I don’t have smell the smell of gas/oil once a week, I feel like there’s something missing.

My Cock-Knee shot was on Tuesday. It was interesting. I thought it would be unbelievably painful since the shot had to go in my knee. But the actual shot felt like I was getting a flu shot or something. Then when the rooster juice was going into my knee I felt pressure. When all was said and done with, it was a little difficult to bend my knee, and when I stood on it Whooo Boy! Stars! OUCH10 . When I got home, I kept it up and iced it, as per instructions, and it still hurts a bit. By the end of the day yesterday it really hurt so I did the ice and elevation thing again. Today it seems to be better.

I have shot #2 next Tuesday. At least I know what to expect.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll actually show you some knitting!

Thanks for the STR color name. According to my Raverly stash list, I have that it's probably time to go stash diving and check it out in person.
