The Sitch

Here's what's going on chez Dear this week:

Watching... Cabin in the Woods.  Twice.  Saw it with some girlfriends last Friday, then saw it again on Saturday with Phil.  Written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, people!  The fact that Chris Hemsworth is in doesn't jurt either.  Just sayin'

Reading... Wow.  Totally forgot about this one when I sat down to write this post.  *Squirms uncomfortably*  Ahem, so, um... I'm reading... um... Fifty Shades of Grey.  Right!  What?  *Blush*

Knitting... Émilie's cardigan.  Still.  Forever.  Does it make me a bad mum if I say I'm bored out of my f***ing mind and just want it to END ALREADY???  Probably, huh?

Listening to... the ice pellets raining down outside.  Yes, it was 27 degrees here a few weeks ago, and now it's practically hailing.  Let us not dwell, shall we?

Thinking about... what I'm going to cast on in a wild fit of glee once the never-ending mind-dulling time-suck of doom cardigan is done.

Dreading... getting on the treadmill at 5:30 tomorrow morning.

Planning... on finishing the blocks for our bedroom quilt (aka the quilt top I've been working on for over a year) this week.

Wondering... what the heck I'm going to do then???

Excited about... Émilie and my wee seedlings turning into actual plants.  It never ceases to amaze me that something from which we will get so much bounty comes from a tiny little seed.

Humming... Édith Piaf's Polichinelle.  Yeah, I don't know where I get this stuff either.

Drinking... the elixir of life, otherwise known as Matcha Green Tea.

Itching to... buy yarn.  Not because I need any, just because I want to.  *Sigh*  I miss buying yarn.

Needing to... buy Maxime's birthday presents instead.  Little dude is going to be FIVE in 3 weeks!  Unreal.

Organizing... my coupons by type (food, personal hygiene, laundry, paper products, etc.).  Because, why yes, I would be a dork.

Delighted by... the friendship bracelet I started a few weekends ago.  Circa 1990, baby!

Happy Knitting, Everyone!

I just put the Fifty Shades Trilogy on my iPhone/iPad. I cannot wait to start them. (in the middle of other stuff first though)

Cabin in the Woods? That's only in the cinema over here at the moment. I didn't relaise Bradley Whitford was in it, I must check it out.
Oh, and the book? Hmm, sounds like it's the kind of book I like to call my guilty reading pleasure :)

I just finished Fifty SoG... interesting to write it that way because it reminds me that I slogged through it. I'm not sure I'd have finished if *I* hadn't been the brilliant one to choose it for book club. Too much of some things, not enough of others, and I was just more and more annoyed with it in so many ways. It'll be interesting to discuss, though, and I know that some of our members LOVED it and have devoured it all.
