As I mentioned, I wanted to try out this FAB recipe. I decided to do my baking this morning, so that the house would have a chance to cool off from the heat of the oven. It is cooler today, rainy, and I have all the windows open, fans going and it doesn’t seem too bad in here. The recipe was easy-peasy and didn’t take long at all to whip up.
I forced myself to finish washing up the sauce pan, mixing bowl, coffee maker parts, etc. before I cut into this baby. Along with a tall glass of icy-cold milk, my breakfast was fantastic! And I think I deserved it. You’ll see …
Last night we went out for a 30 km ride about 7 p.m. As long as we kept moving (and creating a breeze) it wasn’t too bad at all. Drank lots of water, though. Anyway, on the return loop, all of a sudden a wasp buzzed into my face, got stuck between my sunglasses and my eyebrow and stung the hell outta me! It was instant pain, but didn’t look too bad:
It’s my left eye (on the right of the photo) and it was just a little bit puffy and red. It hurt to touch it, but that was all. So imagine my surprise when I woke up this a.m. and my eye felt a little funny. I got out of bed and looked in the mirror:
Man, that’s NASTY! And I can’t say that it doesn’t hurt as bad as it looks! I’ve taken some Benadryl and hopefully that will relieve the swelling. Fucking wasp.
Yesterday I got the dogs’ new i.d. tags in the mail, along with my “man tag” from Boomerang Tags. Their shipping was very fast. When we met Spazz Wendy in Seattle in April, she showed me her “dog tag” that she wears when she goes running. Upon our move, because I knew I’d be riding on busier roads and there’d be no one who’d know me, I decided to get a tag with my personal info, some health info and an emergency contact, in case I ended up in a ditch somewhere.
Oh, you patient readers – here it is, an actual knitting photo!
That’s those Lorna’s Laces “lakeview” socks. I have both socks to this point, just after completing the gusset decreases. I love LL’s yarn, but this pair, also, doesn’t seem to match with the colour swirling repeats. It’s all the same dyelot, but there are differences. The colour in this photo above is a little too rich; the blues, purples and greens are all quite distinct.
It’s blurry, but the colours are quite true in this photo.
I’ll leave you with Apollo’s and Sabrina’s most loveable features: their noses!
