And a very happy birthday to your hubby (and the innumerable other people we know whose birthdays were yesterday). The mental image of the pink tinsel headband has made me smile all morning.
I didn't make my goal of 1200 stitches yesterday, but I remain hopeful that this is an achievable goal. The only reason I didn't make it last night is that I was working row 1 of the lace pattern, and figuring it out and making all possible mistakes to that I can understand them all before I delve in at full speed. Even with that delay and my late start due to a goodbye party of a former coworker, I knit about 600 stitches last night. Maybe I can even make up the difference tonight.
We're enjoying unseasonably warm weather here, so I'm wearing my Eris again today, without even a jacket when I ran across the street to pick stuff up at Lund's. As this is Minnesota, I'm sure this will change without notice, but currently I'm enjoying the sun and the predicted high of 51 today! This is a nice contrast from cold weather last week, and rainy weather much of this week. On Tuesday though, I saw one of the coolest weather things I can remember here. I was driving across the Mississippi on my way to work, and there was so much fog coming off the river that there were 10 foot walls on it on either side of the bridge, and the gorge was full of it. Spectacular (though dangerous if you were on the water!)
Good luck on cooking and such. I would recommend Season 1 of Grey's Anatomy if you didn't start watching it when it premiered... otherwise, my favorite tv show to watch remains Seasons 1-4 of the West Wing. It never gets old, no matter how many times I've seen it!
