Good-ness

This photo is from my friend Dunny's webpage - she's a fab photographer. Tonight I will share with you some random good things in my life as of late:

1) Today I finished an ongoing project at work that started in September! It feels good to see something through to the bitter/sweet end.

2) I've finally ordered yarn for the thermal sweater! It's coming to me via Dunny dearest in the OC (thanks Dun! Miss you!) I've picked burgundy and am going to join a knit-a-long to see if that will spur me on. The sweater's on ridiculously skinny needles so I probably have it ready for the winter after next! I'll keep you posted.

3) I just downloaded a few good tracks tonight on Itunes. I like Mika's Grace Kelly as well as Gwen Stephani's new single The Sweet Escape (she's a bit of a blast from the past - cannot help but think of Spiderwebs playing loudly in the BRCI gym during BRIT in 1997, but maybe that's just me.)

4) Even though it was pounding rain here tonight generally speaking it's starting to feel like spring here in Belfast. Mini daffodils have started sprouting and the air is a bit warmer. Me like-y.

ah spring. We were just finally starting to feel a bit springy here too. Now we have a huge snowfall warning in effect.

At least snow means it can't be -30.

miss all you b's right now.

love kate

It has been quite cold and snowy the past few days here but I hear there is a chinook coming... the one nice thing about winter in Calgary is the many breaks in the cold. I bought some tulips a couple days ago hoping that would bring spring. Still waiting though. Happy Thursday to you!

Yo, good luck with the sweater. I really need a project and someone at work is having a baby. Any good baby designs you can think of? ACM

JBN, good news, the yarn has arrived in the OC!

Now we are just waiting on Stu's stationery treat to arrive and all will be on the way...

It's definitely not spring here yet...a cold 55 degrees (what is that, about 12 or 13?) this morning...time to bring out those winter accessories before the day heats up! ;-)
