Ten Random Things...

Because there's apparently not a Ten on Tuesday this week, I decided to go ahead and do Ten Random Things of my own, highly random, thinking...

1. No spoiling. But: I.Am.Not.Happy.With.Downton Abbey's.Finale. Just sayin'.

2. I uploaded 20 skeins of Knitpicks Palette colors to my Ravelry database yesterday. This is a drop in the bucket as to what sorts of yarn I have in stash that haven't ever been documented in the database, but it was a start.

3. It was also a study in using my iPhone to photo the yarn, and my computer to work with the actual record, then upload the photo directly from the phone to the Rav database file while I moved on to the next record on my computer. I was psyched! It went much faster than first downloading the photo to my computer, editing it, saving it, and then uploading! Whoohoo!

4. Today is back to work after a long holiday weekend. Blech. Would much rather play in stash!

5. It was a very good weekend.

6. I have work to do this week, beyond my day job. Three large bags to make. Hope to get them finished before the weekend and either delivered or shipped. At least that's the plan...

7. I'm looking forward to this weekend, when the temperatures are supposed to be in the mid-50s. That's almost spring-like, and Sweetheart and I are planning to head down to the Greenway to walk. Shake off this cold-weather ennui.

8. This is the first year since my big weight loss that the cold-weather ennui has caused me to pick up a few pounds. Not.Happy.With.That.EITHER.

9. Exercise bike, here I come.

10. Love-love-love Spilly Jane's new mittens and mitts colorwork patterns over at Knitpicks. I have a list of those I'm planning to knit for Christmas gifts. I will be starting early this year. I.WILL!

One of the Mardi Gras krewes in Baton Rouge uses the flamingo as its symbol. Come Epiphany, flamingos are even seen in University Lakes (plastic birds, that is). The flamingo mittens would be perfect for parade watching. Perhaps one should convert them to fingerless mitts for best bead catching.

I'm so very red-faced here. Teri posted a comment and because I was on my iPhone (oy!) my fat finger clicked on "delete" instead of "publish" for her comment. Here is the comment, and Teri, I'm SO sorry I am so clumsy!
"Okay, so you've inspired me with this post to do two things: start my own Random Tuesday list for today and play on Ravelry. I'm thinking it's about time I put my books and mags in my library, but this will be time-consuming. I have a ton of Palette too. Should document and load in my stash.

Imitation being the most sincere form of flattery, do you feel flattered?"

And yes, Teri, I'm QUITE flattered! Have fun and I'll visit your stash page soon. :)

Hello Sallee,
I came over to say thank you for the lovely comment at The Bower and the follow. And now I can also tell you that I agree whole-heartedly about the finale of this season's Downton. Do you by any chance read Melissa Wiley's blog? She writes a wonderful Downton Abbey recap each week that you might enjoy at Geek Mom.

Here is a link to an article she wrote that you might enjoy and it has a link to the recaps:

Wishing you a warm, sweet weekend,

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.
