80’s Flashbacks January 30, 2010

A few things lately have been making me fear for a revitalization of the 1980’s…

“Throwback” Pepsi.  Actually tastes like the Pepsi of my youth.  Drank this, and then had a can of “regular” Pepsi the next day, whoa, the tastebuds rebelled.

Lite Brites, anyone?  I wanted one SOOOOOO bad, but it just wasn’t happening.  So I have to amuse myself by looking at things like this.

And for the gals out there, who didn’t have a friend that had a plastic chain necklace/bracelet with a thousand and one neon-colored charms?  Zakka Life brought them back to my brain with this little craft idea.

My littlest was sick all last week.  This was a common scene at our house during that time:

Aren’t they such good kitties?

This week, unfortunately, they’re ALL back to being their usual selves. 😉

This is Matt.  Matt needed a handknit hat.  So I purchased some Cascade 220 superwash in a blue-green heather and made him this hat.  Apparently my blackberry does not like to focus on intricate cableing, but you get the idea.

A few weeks ago, we had a house guest.

Meet Seamus, a corgy/dachund mix.  Imagine an elongated corgy. 

Note that he is on my pillow.

Note who is at my feet:

Our black cat, George, was LESS than amused about this interloper.  Seamus would snuffle in his sleep, George would grumble.  Seamus would roll over in his sleep, George would grumble.  I would roll over, George would start to grumble, then realize that it wasn’t Seamus, and stop grumbling. 

I don’t think George slept at all that night.

SO didn’t happen.  The crackberry is not letting go of my photos, and I don’t feel like breaking out the micro SD card, which I would then most likely promptly lose. 

Also, have not taken pictures of finished items, need to find camera.  I know it’s here somewhere, it was used last Saturday at a basketball game.  Maybe time to clean up crap?

At least car is now behaving, and all it cost me was gas to Puyallup.


Interruptions January 10, 2010

I was going to post my first FO of the year, tell you about a basketball game, that all of my boys are skiing and I’m a ski-widow for the next 5 weeks. 

Then my car decided to do a “danger, Will Robinson, danger!” alarm and overheat, and well… Well, I still got out and about, just not in my car.  So it’ll have to all wait until tomorrow, when I’m not frizzled and frazzled and freaking out about how much this might cost…

Thank goodness for stash!
