The Zoo

It was a gorgeous day to go to the zoo, I'm so glad we went. We renewed our membership, spent WAY too much on food, and took lots of photos, a select few for you to view here. We walked from front to back and then rode the train up. After we drove to Royal Oak Tattoo and put a deposit down on my next one and made the appointment for Sat. the 8th. Too bad Mr. Ed wasn't there for me to meet since he's the one who's going to stick me with a needle a bazillion times LOL.
So this is me and Garrett just after seeing the Polar Bears.
The chicklets at the same time, Grant, Miranda, Garrett and Max.
This was hilarious! These birds were getting a bath and fluffed their feathers up so the water would reach their skin. From the noise and the preening they were doing I think this was probably as good as sex for them.
This bird almost glowed! It was brilliant and beautiful.
This Polar Bear had the right idea for beating the heat though! He was just swimming circles diving underwater periodically. It was cute.

Mr. Grizzly was awake too, kind of surprising to me because I figured he'd be sleeping like a lot of the other animals (lazy lions).
Rhino and Rhino with kids in the foreground LOL.
And we'll leave you with Pumba a his friend. The warthogs were running around like something bit them in the ass. What funny creatures these are.
So that's the zoo tattoo trip. Came home and I've been uploading photos for over two hours now and I made a sock toe on the very first Socks that Rock kit second sock. Remember the sock that looked like a willy warmer? I'm about at that point where it starts to take on the penis shape LOL. It's such a hoot to knit this in public. Peace!

Zoo, tattoo deposit and appointment, hopefully a nap, and then work. That's how I hope tomorrow will go. Knitting? Probably not, but I may decide to start a sock while the kids are wandering around the exhibits. Oh, but which sock should I work on? Hummm? I have such a variety to choose from! Ok, well, I'll probably post pics of the zoo if I remember to take the camera. Peace knitstas!

So if you don't want to ruin your surprise, go somewhere else right this very instant because I'm going to ruin it for all it's worth! This colorway name and pattern are by far my most favorite, even if the colors (at the moment) don't totally thrill me. FLOWER POWER!!! Yes, the young hippie in me just LOVES that name and the whole idea behind it.

I'm so far behind on the whole sock club thing. I haven't even finished the first pair and now I have three more that are sitting around waiting for me to get to them. Ahh the damn list of knitting projects forever increases at a rate much faster than they are completed and I'd really like to join this again next year because it's so nice to get something happy in the mail once in awhile! And on top of school? School that I so seriously need to focus on so I can get done as soon as possible? Yeah, knitting isn't happening much the next couple of year unfortch. So with out further ado...... Eye candy of the most beautiful kind! And they even threw in some tattoos! We know how I love tattoos, real and temporary! And I've changed my mind, I really really like this colorway. PEACE!

Looky, I've got friends!

I like our anoles. Even if they kids THINK that they are theirs, it's not true, they're mine. LOL. Isn't it hilarious how the one is stretched out? They were so cold and totally zonked out the minute they started to warm up.

I got new yarn tonight!

I'm making good progress on my poncho and I bought some new felting wool from Patons and I'm going to make another skull and cross bones purse! YES I AM! This time it's going to be pale pink with a black skull! Oh I am SOOO geeked!

And I think I did well on my test today! I did not ace it but I'm pretty sure I will maintain my C or C+! I can't wait until later this week when it should be posted. Of course I'd LOVE to get a B- but i think that's a pipe dream. A C+ next to my A would be satisfactory enough.

Even though I have two weeks off I have a lot to do to get all of us ready for school. Karl has three classes, I have 16 credits (6 classes), and the kids once again are in three different schools. I'm taking my happy kat pills again just FYI. Hopefully I will have some knitting photos to share soon! Peace knitsters!

I was looking....

through some older photos and condensing my Kodak files and came across this photo. The last one taken before I donated my hair. I was so sick at the time and looked so rough, but since it shows my hair at it's longest it's worth showing. Boy oh boy, no wonder I couldn't stand to have it long anymore!

And this? This photo cracks me up because I've got these teeny tiny little pigtails in the back and I feel silly and cute all at the same time. Not sure why I want to share this with you except I've been debating about growing my hair out a bit for winter. I'm thinking not now.
So this is just a random weird post for you. No knitting has gone on and I've hardly had a chance to study either which I'm quite pissed about but damn it, you know, sometimes I actually have a frickin' life! Too bad it seems to like to happen when I don't have time for it. Peace!

Tarot it's me again?

Ok a bit lame but I tried, give me kudos for that at least. Barnes and Nobel never even called or sent an email saying they were in, I went up there (stalkers-r-us) and there they were. So anyway, I have a new set of cards to play with. I need to find some time to shuffle them so that they start to feel like mine because they don't now. My old deck is "mine" ya know? The new deck is a bit cheerier than my first one so it should have it's moments of use. Anyway, I have my Death card to take to the tattoo place for my next tattoo when I find the money. Can we say loan disbursement eh? So, I just wanted to tell you all I got them and that I got a couple more inches done on the poncho. Cool beans! Later gators, it's off to bed and then review tomorrow in lecture and then a dentist appointment and then who knows what. Peace.

Test isn't until MONDAY!!! I all of a sudden got 4 more days to study! How very awesome is that? Yes indeedy.

AND right this minute Karl took the kids to the beach then he's bringing them back and going to a ghost hunter group thing. YEAH! More time.... well kind of, the kids will be here, but I kind of miss them so it's all good.

I got my flash cards written up and now I have definitions to look up, write, then type (doing it twice like that cements them better in the brain) and then it's down to USING them. Which I will because I found out today I've got a C+ and to maintain that C+ I have to get an 81 on this test and if I really apply myself and get a 91 or higher I could actually get a B-. WooT!

Honestly, if I don't have to retake this class I'll be happy. My tarot cards aren't in still :-(. LOL Maybe tomorrow eh? I also got a book on palm reading which is turning out to be rather interesting! Ok, off to do something else like ummm, definitions. Yeah.

just so you know....

I'm knitting. I'm working on my Katherine the Great poncho and when there's something spectacular to show I will show it. Things have not been good here and I'm under a tremendous amount of stress this week because it's the last week of biology and I'm not doing nearly as well as I'd like. So, soon, I'll be back to posting more soon. Peace.

My next tattoo....

This: The Death Card 13

Upright: Major transformation.
Situation and Advice: Death is Trump thirteen, a number associated with death since the use of the lunar calendar in which the thirteenth month was the time of death and regeneration. A major change is about to take place. Transformation is imminent. The Death card often appears when you are facing significant life events like marriage, divorce, leaving home, relocating, career moves, or parenthood. A momentous alteration in your life structure is about to occur. A situation is coming to an end and a new era is dawning. Now is a time to rid yourself of attitudes and situation you have outgrown to pave the way for a new stage in life. A loss is possible. All that is useless or outmoded must be discarded. This is a time of endings and new beginnings; as the New Testement reads, "Unless the grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it cannot grow." You must let go of old unproductive ways. Sometimes this card means literally the death of someone you know.
People: Those undergoing major life changes. Agents of change. Undertakers.

Reversed: Resistance to necessary change.
Situation and Advice: When Death occurs in the reversed position, you are clinging to an outmoded situation, relationship, or attitude that really should be discarded. Your fear of change rivets you to the past and hinders your growth. What are you afraid of? Your resistance to necessary change makes the experience more painful when it inevitably occurs. It is better to take the bull by the horns than to undergo such changes involuntarily.
People: Those who cling to the past for fear of change and transformation.

This card has been showing up in almost every spread I've done the last couple of months, to the point that I can't ignore it anymore. I need to imbrace the upright position and start to let go of what it means in it's reversed position because that's me totally. This discription was taken from my most favorite book about tarot:

Tarot Plain and Simple, by Anthony Louis, illustrations by Robin Wood, 2000 Llewellyn Publications.

This is just the best book. It is plain and simple and soooo much help for someone like me who just can't fit the information/meanings into my head at this point in my life. Anyway, I want this as my next tattoo. Thinking about my left shoulder blade area.

Oh, and DAMN, it's still hotter than hell! I may melt first.

Wow another great package in the mail!

I LOVE WoodSpriteSoap! The Amber Earth is my most favorite but I do love the Bliss.
The Bliss Massage Oil makes me want to lick my hand where I rubbed it on. They use only organic ingredients and this Bliss has many yummy things in it. Pure essential oils of Bergamot, sweet orange, frankincense, coriander, tagette, cardamom, tangerine, allspice, myrrh, clove and rosemary. It reminds me of Constant Comment Tea by Bigelow. It's a serious scent treat!
If you haven't ever tried their products I really think you should. It's a total indulgence for me with my budget but I do it for myself. This is one of those times that you TOTALLY get what you pay for! TOTALLY! I don't think there is a product I haven't liked.
Go visit them, they're really good at what they do, excellent customer service, quick delivery, environmentally aware and pure. Yes, I love this stuff!!!

Sock blockers!
And the remaining Wasabi nuts!I seriously just think this totally rocks and HAD to be a liar and show the booty to you! They match my new bag! They do! OMG that totally rocks! Yes! Enjoy the photos!!!

Labels: ,

First I want to show you my booty bag!

Arrrr it's a muffin pan booty! I LOVE how this turned out, it's just the right size for a purse. I love it and I love that all I had to buy was the black wool, the colored was from my STASH!
I'm going to start trying to whip out more of my poncho now. OH and guess what? Uh huh, you're going to have to wait until later when I can get some more photos uploaded.... I got my SOCKAPALOOZA SOCKS!!!!! YES I DID! They fit, they're soft, they're snuggly, they're bright and cheerful, and oh I'm so in love with them! I have to sneak over with my tail between my legs and tell my pal that I can't get hers in the mail until Wednesday. Though of course they have been done, but I had to wait for a check to clear to have the moola and now I need to get the time.

Anyway, Nova, they're totally freakin' awesome loveliness! I got homemade Fancy Feet sock blockers to go with them AND two bags of Wasabi Macadamia Nuts... boy you know one of those bags are gone right? Yep. LOVE THEM! Now I'm going to crave something I probably will never find here hee hee hee. Sooooo cool! Soooo totally awesome cool groovy rock my world kick arse! Yes! I took photos...

They're done! Look!

I'm sorry, I had to try them on. Her feet are a tad bit smaller than mine so if they fit me snug they'll probably fit her ok. God I hope so!
LOL Had to sneak in one of my tattoo!
Here they are and I'm in love with them! I have to locate the yarn band now. When I do I'll let you know what it is. It's 100% merino and I did them toe up pretty much doing a generic pattern, then did 6 rows of 1x1 ribbing then a 4/6 picot bind off. Sassy!
Then I just had to be narcissistic person and share a photo my middle boy took of me. Other than usually being blurry he takes the best photos of me. Gotta love that, especially when you're not photogenic at all. Ok, sockapalooza 4 socks done, felted bag next! Peace knitstas!
