I’m sick, day 3

Thursday, July 31st, 2003

Day one, I had a horrible sinus infection and a throbbing headache. Day two, I felt like I’d just run a marathon in all the bad ways – no endorphin buzz. Day three. I really planned to go back to work today. God knows I have enough to keep me busy for a good long […]

Lambtown, USA

Monday, July 28th, 2003

What a weekend. I flew to Sacramento last Thursday morning and began my adventure. I have a lovely new group of friends out there whom I hope to see again. Unfortunately, for the first two days I didn’t pull my camera out much, so I don’t have a lot of pictures of them to show […]

Back Home

Monday, July 28th, 2003

I’m back. I’m fucking exhausted. I have had a wonderful vacation, though not an easy one. I saw many beautiful things and met many beautiful people. I was reminded of my potential, and reminded that I am eventually going to have to acheive it. I made someone laugh, and I made someone cry. I gave […]

Goin’ To California

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2003

I’m getting very nervous. Tomorrow morning, I will board a plane which will ultimately take me to Sacramento, CA. I’m going to the Dixon Lambtown USA festival. I’m also going to meet someone that I’ve been talking to online and on the phone for quite some time. I am hoping for very good things. Eek. […]

CDS is done! Here’s what it looks like: It’s going to get a good shampooing and go to its new home on Monday.

Hey Technogranny!

Hey Technogranny! The Yarn Barn is 30 miles from Boerne. I go both places all the time, so if you need something picked up, let me know.

Sleeves

I went by the Vietnamese restaurant last night to show the finished CDS to Chris. Unfortunately, it was his night off, but the waitress that I usually get wanted to see the sweater. When I laid it out on the table for her, she cocked her head and said, “It’s a little small, isn’t it?” […]

What are the odds

Monday, July 14th, 2003

Yesterday, Kelly took me to see Pirates of the Carribean, which I can heartily recommend. As we were walking into the theatre, I reached into my U.S. Army map bag, which I have discovered is an excellent item for the walking knitter. I pulled out the Bog Jacket that I’ve started to work on and […]

Fresh Start

Saturday, July 12th, 2003

This morning I got up at 7:00, filled my CamelBak with sports drink, drove out to Boerne and got to the starting point for the Wheelmen’s ride about two minutes after they’d left. Ooops. But I managed to catch some folks who were taking it easy, and I had a very happy ride of 42 […]
