Spring Forward! (sigh)

If you didn't set your clocks ahead an hour? You're going to be late to work tomorrow!
And no, I don't like this time of year any better than anyone else does. But that never seems to make any difference, they just keep making us do it, ya know? I'm heading to bed early tonight to help myself transition (at least I hope it helps!).

Necessity, fortunately, brought me back in sync yesterday afternoon, and I was able to work on the vet's bookwork and get those wrapped up this afternoon. That's a monthly chore I'm always happy to finish up.

I worked a bit on Ishbel this weekend and wound up the second skein of CTH Supersock in aubergine in preparation for the last half of the shawl - I'm beginning the second repeat of chart B (then another of A and one of C), so there's progress. Of course, I usually only get 2-4 rows done at a time. Shawl knitting is always slow going in Knitnana's house.

I also made a really delicious soup (White Bean Chicken Chili) and wrote a bit about it over on Nana Sadie's Place yesterday.

One thing that helped me out of the spacey-ness yesterday was working on the new plain vanilla sock:

I'm in love with the colors here - it's Fortissma Socka Mexiko Color (#0029) and all those shades are in my range of favorites - aqua, taupe, lavender, black, light denim blue. They'll work with jeans all year round, but especially this spring and summer!

Oh...speaking of jeans? I bought a pair of size 8s. (Don't hate me, please?)

Right one will hate you for that, heheheh

(Can you believe she looked right into the flash for that shot?)

Promise not to hate you :-) Love the socks - I need to get a pair on the needles. I had to put three pairs of store bought socks in the rag basket yesterday and I need socks. Yep, I was draggy all day yesterday ....

I could never hate you. <3 I'm so proud of you! And the socks look wonderful. I'm glad you found something to put all that nervous energy into. And...Meezer is beautiful as always.

No hating here -- that's great!! The socks looks excellent, and the soup sounds delicious. But I'm with you on this daylight savings mess; can't we end the madness?

Anyone who would be miffed at you for reaching a goal you've set for yourself isn't worth your time. At least that's what I think.

Love Meezer's shayna punim (pretty face).

Oh, size 8!!! Wonderful. I meant to ask before, are you on a regular exercise program too, in addition to your diet? What an accomplishment, I am impressed.

LOVE the socks.

Hugs and Headbonks, G

Congratulations on the 8's!

This is the first year I haven't really noticed DST. I know it's only 3 days in but normally I'm so jetlagged I can't see straight and now.....normal. Ish.;)

I am so proud of you for all you have been able to accomplish! This is great news for your heart:) I love the new sock colorway too.

Size 8!!!! That's awesome. I did too recently. Finally my 3 times a week trip to Planet Fitness is paying off. I still am waiting for my body to feel better though. I still don;t feel 'healthy'.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
