Life and other stuff

Well, Thursday night I got that return done - by 12:30 without any drugs. Pretty good I think. Work was anticlimatic on Friday as all the information I needed to complete files was not there. So, I wandered over to the LYS that is closing and picked up a few needles, some sock yarn - Cotton Regia in black and brown and socktissiomo or fortissimo in blues/browns. Yarn arrived from Nell or Chicken Knits destash. Lovely yarn. Will post all these some day, but just have a few minutes before must go off to bed. I finished the first of my Marks & Katten socks. Lovely - even learned how to graft together. These are going to my friend Mel, cause they just seemed to suit her. She was over for dinner with her kids and was quite taken with the yarn.
Today was odd job day and some cleaning occurred (excessive napping) and again with the shopping - one pair of longer shorts for me. We won't get into the spoils the gurlz got. Tomorrow I will play tourist with my sister and her friend - they are here from Vancouver and Courtney has never been to Ontario. Should be fun and the little gurl will go with her dad so that will be less trouble.
As a laptop did not materialize from thin air, I may not post until next Friday or even Saturday. If things go well, I may get a chance tomorrow night, but the packing did not go well today and I'm doing it for three people. The second M&K sock will come for knitting release and the special project too. I am trying to limit myself so I can get the project done. Some frogging happened on it so there is some rethinking going on. It's all good. Must also start writing things out properly. Better pack the yarn winder - I hope to get into the second of the projects skeins.
I was thinking today - I bought various toiletries so I don't have to take the stuff in my bathroom. A little splurge for the trip.
I watched Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with Johnny Depp tonight. Loved it. I read the book many years ago and loved it then. I think I may have seen a cartoon version of this before too. It was fabulous!!! The little gurl watched parts and slept. The big gurl alternately loved it and ran from the room in fear. Almost as entertaining as the movie!!!
Have a great July 1st for all the Canadians and if I don't get a chance to post tomorrow night - have a wonderful July 4th!!!

I also loved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (far more than my husband did). And for a yarn sale, you did very well. I don't think I could have restrained my shopping urges quite so masterfully.
