Happy Friday

Happy Friday!!! It's shaping up to be a beautiful weekend in New England... finally! I will be spending at least half of it outside, so that is a good thing!

My Loopy Ewe Sock Club Lite kit for Spring arrived earlier this week. Did anyone else sign up for the two "consolation" kits? This was actually my first club kit of any sort and although I often envy all the goodies everyone posts when their various kits arrive, I still wasn't exactly sure of what to expect. I have to say that I'm rather pleased...

The yarn is Caper Sock from String Theory in the gorgeous Bye Bye Blues colorway (get it... bye, bye winter blues?). There were two patterns included, Dancing Diamond Socks and Cassarah (scarf/mini wrap), as well as a set of exclusive Loopy-red Namaste Oh Snap pouches. I plan to use the yarn for Cassarah, which I think will look absolutely stunning with everything from jeans to a dress.

Sadly, my robin update isn't so happy. I'm pretty confident the nasty cat did get the Mama to the 4 egg nest. She never returned after I saw the robin getting taken down last week. Not to mention, we're used to seeing a good dozen robins zipping around the yard and lately it's been one or two... I think that cat has cleared them out. When I snapped these pics on Tuesday night, the already abandonded nest with 2 eggs was empty and the one with 4 eggs was down to 2 (it's now empty as well)...

There was one broken egg below each nest. Not sure if something came and ate them or if perhaps another robin found the nests and was clearing them out for her own use. Only time will tell...

I'll leave you with some Friday Fill-Ins...

1. My great-niece Emma never fails to make me smile.

2. I'm looking forward to reconnecting.

3. Mix 104.1 is what I'm listening to right now.

4. Potato salad must have mayonnaise, not Miracle Whip in it!

5. A lobster sandwich was the best thing I ate today yesterday (I've only had coffee and yogurt so far this morning!).

6. Today was the 141st day of 2010.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to relaxing, tomorrow my plans include being outside all day and Sunday, I want to relax some more!

Adorable. And coffee should be a major food group.

Emma's a darling. I never buy Miracle whip; I make my own mayo, and it is good! Like Hellman's, except that I know what's in it! That yarn is a beautiful color. Enjoy your package.

Your blue yarn is beautiful...

It's hard to watch nature at work. Beautiful Robins, beautiful eggs but not all are meant to survive.
