Woo Hoo... its Friday!

TGIF! Or more like, tgif and we don't have an overly full weekend that will keep us running non-stop from Thursday to Monday like last week. That means I might actually have a minute to vacuum up the tumbleweeds dog hair that's taken over the house. woo hoo!

So... for some final "catch up" blogging from the past week... and I appologize in advance for the lack of knitting content (yes, yes... I do knit... I just haven't photoed any WIP's lately).

We ended up heading up to the
Hopkinton Fair on Monday. I have no interest at all in the may or may not be safe rides or the overpriced, play for a piece of crap games, but had a blast wandering around the exhibits and seeing all of the animals! We (the big kids) even played in the little petting zoo ring for a bit. I forgot to bring the camera, but did use my phone to snap this couldn't-resist shot...

How friggin adorable are these sleepy guys? They totally reminded me of 2 of my own children... see?

For the multi-crafty bunch out there, I wanted to share this awesome how-to that I found over on Ericka's blog. Have I not mentioned my love for all things autumn? I also love roses (what girl doesn't? although my favorite flower is the gerber daisy). So, take 1 part autumn & 1 part roses, mix 'em up and what do you get? The coolest roses made from maple leaves! Ericka is going to make them for her wedding, which just so happens to be taking place on my birthday! (side note: anyone who wants to be so crafty as to make me maple roses for my birthday, please know that I would adore them)

Dish Rag Tag update for the non-particpants... the official winners are Team Hip-Knit-Tised! Congratulations to them! My team's (Lucky 13) box arrived to Emily yesterday, as I'm sure others did as well. We're still anxiously awaiting the announcement of who placed 2nd and 3rd. The wonderful Joanne of A Knitter's Garden provided the beautiful hand made row counters for the 3rd place finishers.... check them out (you'll need to scroll down to the Aug 10th post on Emily's blog) and if you like, she has some available at her shop!

I decided to check on my Ravelry status this morning...

You signed up on July 22, 2007
You are #19564 on the list.
8035 people are ahead of you in line.
11775 people are behind you in line.
36% of the list has been invited so far

So I'm still waiting to find out just what all this fuss is about.

I got our tickets for this year's Trans-Siberian Orchestra holiday concert and guess what?!?! I managed to get us 3rd row! Cool. I went for the first time last year when Matt got me tickets for my birthday and it was amazing... if you have a chance, go see it! You won't be disappointed... young or old, no matter what kind of music you enjoy... if you love the holidays and amazing musicians, GO!

Apparently our former foster, the loveably Dustee, was also enjoying some of those final lazy, hazy days of summer like Lola the other day. I got some new pics from his Mom this week and couldn't resist sharing this one... so, kick back and relax like Dustee (wow- I can't believe its been so long since Dustee was with us, that we had snow!) this weekend... I'm looking forward to getting some good knitting (and hopefully a little of that house cleaning... ugh) in this weekend.

Happy Friday! You're getting closer to Ravelry! I heard they're going to be sending out massive numbers of invitations in the next couple of weeks. You're going to love it!

Your Secret Pal from SP11

P.S. I sent in a complaint against that SOB "officer of the law". So very sad.

Thanks for stopping by my blog :) The orange tiger stripe sock yarn is Colinette Jitterbug, and I love working with it. Your dog and sheep pics are fantastic, animals are so cute when they pile up like that and your dogs are a riot. BTW, I am just ahead of you in the Ravelry queue, 18,000-something or other - *sigh*. Someday.

Hey! Almost happy weekend, eh? Anne and I were both 600+ Ravelry invites away this morning (we're like 3 apart in invite numbers), so we're hoping we're in soon...

I'm looking forward to a weekend with my dogs!

That picture of Dustee is a hoot! And I always enjoy the pics of your babies.

I'm going to check out your link for filing a complaint.

Here's an even more unbelievable but true: Last summer, on a very hot day, a mom here in town went to pick up her baby at the daycare, where they told her that the baby hadn't been dropped off that day. Mom rushed back out to the car to find that she'd forgotten to actually get OUT of the car when she went by the daycare that morning, and the sweet little baby was dead in it's carseat.

How in the world???....

Hope you get on Ravelry soon!!! Have fun at the Hopkington Fair, too. I bet you'll find some great stuff there.
