I had a bunch of snazzy blog post titles running around my head today, but it seems that I'm spent, because I'm fresh out of ideas at present.
In my defense, today was a long day. It started before the crack of dawn with my daughter getting up at around 5:45 AM to head to the bathroom, hacking and coughing all the way (she's getting over a cold at the moment). For reasons I still don't fully comprehend, Phil decided it would be a good idea to have her come into our bed for the remaining 30 minutes of the night (his alarm goes off at 6:15 - ugh). Let me ask you something: could you sleep with someone whose morning coughing takes on Tuberculosis-like qualities lying on YOUR pillow and gently running her fingers all over your face? Yeah, didn't think so. Especially when she knows that we can get out of bed when the clock says 6:00, so she watches it like a hawk and comments on Every. Single. Minute. "Maman !!! C'est cinq cinq huit !". Yes, thank you honey.
Despite the early morning coughies, Émilie was really feeling quite chipper this morning, so off to daycare she went after two days at home. Maxime and I had our Cardio-Poussette class (which I briefly debated skipping in favour of some couch-potato time), then went straight back home for lunch and a nap, followed by a trip to the grocery store before we picked up Émilie. I know. How can I keep up with this fast-paced lifestyle? :)
In one of my recent posts, I mentioned that I'd bought a bunch of books at Chapters recently. Some arrived on Monday, so I've got plenty of reading material. I've been reading through Mason Dixon Knitting over the past 2 days. I've wanted that book for a while, but always felt it was too expensive (go figure), so I was really glad to use a gift certificate to buy it. I really like Ann and Kay's style. I used to read their blog, but felt it was a bit too technical for my tastes. Now I'm thinking of giving them another chance (I know, I'm a giver).
I've been focusing on 2 projects lately: Cluaranach and Phil's Spring Cable Socks. I'm also looking forward to casting on the Cardigan for Merry. I'm waiting for Kate-the-Enabler to receive her yarn from KnitPicks (that's right - perennially frugal Kate-the-Enabler made her first EVER online yarn purchase. Give her a great big hand!!!!) so we can work on it together during our weekly SnBs.
That's it for tonight, folks! I'm off to knit and sleep (not necessarily in that order).
