My yarn order is only 20 min away from my house!

What torture! I now know that my yarn that I ordered from Herrschner's is in a nearby city. I would drive there in a second if I knew I could get it. They don't reallly need to deliver it- no problem. Just get it into my hands! As soon as it is here I can start working on tank tops. Today is the perfect day to start too- a forecast of 83, and it's knitting time with my friend Leslie this morning.

Since I finished my Gloria, I too, like Wendy Knits have felt some PPD. Post project doldrums. I started a segment for charity for Warm up America, and am still working on my first linen washcloth, Mancala Mia from knitty, and my sock that was messed up since last Wednesday's SnB. It is unlike me to allow a mess-up to remain for such a long time, but last night was the first time I tried to fix it.

It also helps keep the knitting down when I am busy writing stuff for school. I completed some work on Tuesday, and brought it to the post office to weigh and mail. Last night I got another thing done (that was due yesterday, might I add). When I completed it at around 8:30pm I decided to walk it to our post office mailbox. First I checked at what time the sunsets 'cause I am scared of bats. I realized I had about 25 min so I set out with Buster to conquer the mission. We made it, safe and sound with no bats visible. Now today, I should be able to knit peacefully, knowing that the next thing I have due is a 4 page paper on Thusday. I should have plenty of time to whip that out.

Don't you just love/hate being able to track packages online? Even my kids know about it now, except they nag me to track their stuff for them. Sheesh.

Bats? Did you say Bats? I didn't know there were bats in the twin cities. A little scared here. Are you sure? Oh and I do hope the postman comes early for you.

Yep- there's bats out here. Today I was on the road with an Animal removal specialist vehicle boasting about it's ability to manage bats!
