Yesterday the first preview release of WordPress 2.5 RC1 came out and I was one of the first people to install it and tinker with it (as is evident in my Twitter). I love it and out of my 5 blogs, this will be the first one to be updated with the new software next week (I am waiting to read what others think.) I will put in a different theme as well, just to freshen things up for Spring.
I have been using the 45 minutes here and there I sit down to watch a TV show to knit a bit. Still making those simple moss stitch pot scrubs. They work quite well! And because the recycled ribbon yarn is made of Polyester, they do not stain like cotton.
I cleaned up my bookcase but now the living room is full of stacks of documents. I have too much paper and I am shredding anything that dates before 2005 (business papers and printouts) I have found a stack of work-related souvenirs like delivered projects (reports & DVDs), magazine and newspaper coverage and thank you/recommendation letters from former clients and employers. I used to have an encyclopedic memory but that all went to hell when I had my daughter so I’ve been scouring my documents for key names and contacts in the past 6 months.
Here’s my recycled stash! And my Louet Gem yarn from Robyn’s Nest. I have also received my spun silk and knit a little swatch. My brother is having his 3rd girl this summer and I am contemplating making her something but not sure on the size. I recently found my daughter’s first sweater from my favorite Pingouin pattern and may reverse-engineer it (can’t find the actual pattern.) More on that quest later.
Now can you tell what doesn’t fit in? (Click on the picture to see the details.)
I have a category for French-Canadian Literature, Biographies, Classics (mostly French), Tech (Programming) books,
Vintage books about womanhood, domesticity and sexuality but no actual category for books about sexy androids. If and when I get Alpha Squad 7: Lady Nocturne: a Tek Jansen Adventure
I will create a category in my book case for Tek books :)
Last but not least.
Hourray for Team Canada! Toronto’s Chelsea & Jasper (with my fave Viv) have made it into the finale of Project Catwalk (UK.) Seems like Jasper is the obvious choice here but I am still rooting for Viv and Chelsea… I am dying to see the next show!
