I do a lot of thinking while laying in bed in that drowsy, warm state between 'Do I really want to get up for a pee' & 'Dammit, I have to get up for a pee'. I think about laundry & how good sheets used to smell after blowing in the wind all afternoon. And I think about where Stevo put my camera when he tore my office apart to redesign my computer system. Last night or should I say this morning, I was wide awake at 3:28 wondering if I should get up & go for breakfast somewhere or just suck it up & try for another couple of hours. I really didn't want to get out of my warm nest but my stomach was complaining about going to bed without dinner again. It's been complaining a lot lately because I've been feeding it another strain of antibiotic that it doesn't like. I suspect I could force down one more cycle of the stuff before my gut really kicked the crap out of me but the last 10 days weren't easy. For me, the only way to deal with the side effects is to stop eating. And don't get all out of shape, you can swallow a huge amount of calories through a straw! I did drink a lot of milky tea, a couple of mochas, miso soup, oatmeal & noodles in chicken broth. Just nothing bulky. The pills are all gone - you'd think the stomach would shut up but it still complains.
Until I find my camera, there won't be any pictures of anything even though I'm happily knitting my way through a Purple Scrappy sock. Well, purple & pinks. I bought some Neon sock yarn from Knit Picks & thought it would be great to brighten up some of the antique OPAL I found in the stash. Looks like something out of the 60s, the kind where the pattern moves when you stare at it too long. But it's dark so I thought a little neon pink would do the trick . . . .
The Big Triangle blanket is just about finished. I think there's a couple of balls of something or other left in the bag & several balls of the dark brown eyelash yarn - don't know if I'll use the eyelash on an edge although the stuff feels really good elsewhere in the triangle but it's a bit thin. Not sure what I'll do around the outside to finish it off yet although I left a loop at the beginning of each row, just in case. I was thinking about fringe at the time.
Sorted through all the sweater starts for Moi & have decided to finish the one that's closest to being finished - in the end, they're all the same - top down, raglan sleeves, V-neck, I'm so dull!! well, except for the colors, that is. And in the end, I just want a simple, warm, woolly garment to throw on to
And that's about it. I guess I'm wide awake now so I might as well work on the first chapter of my new University of Alberta Paleontology course - Ancient Marine Reptiles. This is another in the series presented through Coursera & follows Dino 101, Paleotology:Theropod Dinosaurs & the Origin of Birds & Paleontology: Early Vertebrate Evolution. Gotta keep the 'Little Grey Cells' working!
