...at night. Do you know it? That song *is* the '80s -- and just makes me think "pouty."
With Mdd at camp this week and Kt having left for Toronto at 6:00 this morning, I won't be photographing the grrs together for a while. Perhaps you couldn't see Mdd's haircut very well in the weekend photo, but I think you'll agree that it's shorter, very blonde, and quite cute. Her roots are starting to show and they look much darker than I remember. Kt and Ai both snip at their hair constantly -- they've both changed a little even since this photo was taken a couple of weeks ago. They've been having great fun shopping for sunglasses at thrift stores this summer!
I've finished the leg and started the heel (oops, I typed "hell" -- I'm going to pretend that never happened) of my sock. Someday, I hope, socks will be my take-along knitting and that I'll always have one on the needles, as so many other knitters. I am so anxious to get the first one (okay, two) done, though, that I've been working on it exclusively.
I did do a little organizing and rearranging of the stash last night. Where did that ball -- those balls -- of self-striping sock yarn come from? I opened a drawer in a chest and found both forgotten yarn and project(s) in need of finishing. As far as I can see, there's no reason for any new yarn to cross my threshold for a while.
Heather left a comment yesterday and said that her husband quit smoking 3 weeks ago (YayForHim!). I wrote back to her said that it's hard for me to even remember what I was feeling at 3 weeks, but I know it wasn't as good as today! I still think about smoking everyday, sometimes several times a day (especially when I see someone smoking or smoke escaping through an open car window or something triggers what used to be "break"). I can more "easily" put it out of my mind and lose the craving these days, but I can pretty much tell you, at any given point in time, how long I've been quit. I wonder if I'll ever be like Ann (who quit at the same time as me), or my sister, who really seem to not think about it much at all.
