There's no "whoops" in that title.
And this is not an homage to Britney.
Although I did watch How I Met Your Mother on Monday night.
It was funny - but it usually is anyway.
But that is not what I am here to discuss.
I have not been feeling well lately, not well at all.
I'm getting a bit better - no fever, just general malaise, excessive coughing, and sinus issues. So I stayed home from work on Tuesday with DN2 - she was out of school on Monday and Tuesday but I worked part of the day on Monday.
For the record, she is now a convert and is close to believing that tomato soup and grilled cheese is the best lunch EVER. We've had it two days in a row.
Essentially I've had knitting time. I should be reading, but I really cannot focus and I need to hurry up and get focused because I have class on Thursday.
Fortunately I have been able to knit on my Sassy Stripes Sock and today after my nap (hey, I'm sick!), I decided to go for it and work on the heel.
Well guess what.
I did it!
That, my friends, is a sock with a heel.
Sorry it is not a better picture but the batteries are dead in the camera and I'm using my cell phone camera.
Now I just have to work on the gusset. Picking up stitches is always a chore for me, I just don't do it "pretty".
But I've knit a heel again and I'm so psyched!
As a matter of fact I read their directions and thought, well that just sounds silly and incomplete so I am just going to do what I know I need to do.
And it worked!
Now you know I haven't been feeling well but I was well enough to stock up on my favorite seasonal candy.
I went to the store on Monday night (sick, yes, but we were in desperate need of essentials at the house).
I went to the corner of the store where they stock the seasonal candy only to discover - to my horror - that all the candy had been replaced by....paper towels! I actually had a moment of panic when I thought to myself, can I really get through a year without this candy?
I couldn't answer it, honestly. To my surprise as I walked closer I saw that a small section of the shelves contained my candy.
Big huge sigh of relief.
And it was on sale - half price!
So I bought 12 bags - one bag for each month.
This is what it came to:
SN2 was with me and laughed. I let him laugh because I did not even feel embarassed in the store.
Not one bit.
Because when the summer comes and then the fall, I will have my Cadbury Mini-Eggs to eat.
My friend Jean is a convert to this candy too.
Have you stocked up on your supply yet, Jean?
