it has been almost a week since my last post! Not much has happened since last time. We had almost 100 degree temps. That makes for slow going in everything. I work in a high school and I do hall duty. One of the teachers had a thermometer and stuck it in the hall it was 110 with no breeze. What fun I had. I kept my kiddies home from school. Oh and I learned something very important on tuesday. Since it was so hot i drank a lot of water but I was still feeling sick and dizzy. A teacher happened by and asked if I was ok. I told her that I was drinking enough (I lost count on how many times I had to go pee) but i still felt sick. She said I look grey and she was a little worried. Turns out it is good and all to drink plenty of water but I was low on electrolytes. So I almost passed out from the heat. After I stomached a bottle of Gatorade (which I hate with a passion) I felt much better. So to everyone out there do not forget your electrolytes.

Ok well with all of this heat does not make for good anything weather so I did not get much done. I did go and visit my LYS which was having a moving sale. It is really nice when a lys moves to a bigger place. I did get a few things. I bought two more balls of Cascade Fixation. Since it is cotton this is what I am knitting with at work, that is when I am knitting.

And shaded swampy greens (not the real name but I think it fits) which I have already started to use for another pair of Just One Fix socks

I also bought 2 skeins of Noro Silk Garden. I had wanted to use it for the Choke scarf pattern I had but I didn't like the way it was working out. (maybe the 3rd time is the charm with this scarf) Well I had just received the new issue of Spin Off and in it there was a pattern for a Old Shale Shawl. Now Noro looks like homespun yarn so I said this might be nice.

I am using my new Lantern Moon wooden needles = ) Very nice needles. Light weight and slick. Of course they are a little bit on the $$ side but I treated myself.

here is pictures of the Noro

Since it is mostly silk it is ok to knit with as long as I am in front of the fan. =)

My baby, Buddah turned 4!!!! When did this happen?!?!?!
When we signed her up for Pre-k a few weeks back I cried in the office. The woman there was polite and said it is a little hard when the first one goes off to school. I said yes it was when Skywalker went to pre-k but she was the youngest. Then she said Oh that is hard and handed me a tissue. Where does the time go?

Oh and the "poll" (which included Skywalker and Drama Girl) picked C.

=) Stay cool

I've been so lax on posting this week too - it's hard to get motivated for much of anything in weather like this. Of course, it's always easy to get motivated for yarn shopping - and you did great on that end!!! :)
