Another weekend down the tubes.

At least there was no big storm this weekend. Just a little rain last night. I'm off to work tonight. First I'll try and meet up with my knitting friends. Then I'll by burittos for dinner.
Still knitting on my hubbys socks. I sure hope I finish them this week. I am bored with them.
Ordered yarn from Knitpicks to make another Irish Hiking Scarf. It is called Elegance it is an Alpaca/?Silk blend. I hope it is soft. I am into soft.

Travel in California this weekend has been an adventure.
Fiona went down to Santa Barbara on Friday. She left the house here about 6am and I think she made it there about 10pm. I dont' think they bothered to tell the drivers of the Amtrak bus that there is no direct way to get to Santa Barbara from Bakersfield. The same think coming back. Fiona said both drivers tried to get thru and then had to back tack down to Los Angeles. Of course the fact that there are no train track thru Santa Barbara didnt' help her travel woes either.
So now Fiona is going to Sacramento. Luckly my brother lives by there so he will pick her up and take her home so she can sleep in a bed instead of a bench in the Amtrak station.
Our train from Sacramento to the Bay Area was delayed to wait for people coming from Aburn. I guess they had an interesting trip because of all the snow.
If I'm not mistaken there were at least 3 tornado's in California this weekend and countless funnel clouds.
Glad I didnt' get suck in most of the traffic and weather problems of our weekend.

No rest for the wicked. LOL

I had a root canal on Thursday. While I am not in pain, I do hurt. It is just a dull ache. Makes it hard to concentrate on things. I hope it goes away soon.
I also hope to never have another root canal again. Right now I feel like I am personally paying for my dentist vacation. Good think I have insurance. I have a 2 week reprive before he finishs up the tooth. I hope to be back on solid food by then.
Everyone have a great weekend. I'm at work.

Where does the time go?

I've been so busy.
The last post didn't post, it is in my history.
Wonder when it will show up.
Spring is here.
We've had a little rain, not much.
Nice sunny days with a little wind. Not to cold.
No fog.

Where did my life go?

I've been so busy I don't have the time to think.
Went up to Elk Grove on Wednesday it took my 7 hours to get there and 7 hours to get home. I was past the point of exhaustion. I'm going to try Greyhound the next time I go up.
Not much on the knitting front. I am cleaning up the spot beside my seat in the living room. I have a new lamp and want to be able to use it.
Can't wait to be able to sit and relax in the living room and see what I'm knitting and reading.
Hope everyone's week goes well. Our weather has been beautiful. The rain never showed up. Gets cold at night but you can go out with just a light sweater during the day.
