Back to regularly scheduled programming...


Project Spectrum continues

I have turned the second heel on my Stalker socks...I have stopped at a possible error on my Candle Flame shawl and I am debating - Drops Jacket....Twisted Yoke...ah, the colorways are so enticing. I did end up ordering a second La Digitessa kit, if for the yarn alone - I had no will to stop myself, even though I am not certain what either skein will be for sure... AND I found lipstick to match.

The February-March colors are so inspiring, so deep, delicious - berry stained against the white background of our snow covered landscape. Kinda makes my mouth water, as does this...

Wisconsin Belgian Red by New Glarus Brewery - 1 lb. of Door County Chrries in each bottle. That was our Valentine's treat. And the best part of V-Day, my husband won me a bobblehead - roses are so impractical - now a Bob and Brian Bobblehead (from 102.9 The HOG)...priceless. I was truly more excited that you can imagine - hopping around the car knowing a bobblehead was going to be on my desk. I nearly wept with joy, ah, a little glimpse into the simple things that bring me great, albeit silly, delight. I hope you can appreciate the Guitar Hero loving glam rock, head banging 80's girl in me. :)


Anyways, DH was caller 29 during no less than a Rush Song, Freewill - and wouldn't you know, we are going to their Snakes and Arrows show during Summerfest this June - we are quite excited, dedicated fans and all. And we have never been to Summerfest - a huge, well-known music festival in Milwaukee - our tickets include entrance to SF for the day - it is a light in the dark of this long winter. So Rush and a bobblehead, fate. I hope your V-Day was as special as mine. *wink*

You bought another kit! Weren't you on a diet or something? :)

That wine sounds delicious!

Congrats -- it's awesome to win stuff (especially stuff you want, lol).

I know it isn't cool like a bobblehead, but my dh once wheedled a Serta Sheep out of his mom for me. 6 years later it still graces the dash of my current vehicle. :D I even take him on road trips with me.

Hey, that's so cool, we're going to see Rush in June too! We just got tickets to the concert when they come to Philly. I first got into their music when I met my husband. :)

Stacey, I don't even know what project spectrum is but that photo set is beautiful, just look at those colors!
I love your ruffle sweater. You are too darn cute. Can you even believe this weather? Too much, enough is enough, the weather gods have already won. I was so happy to get home last night considering the entire city basically shut down. Minneapolis felt like Florida to me.
Take care.

Lucky you with the RUSH tickets! I have been to several of their shows in the past....but there probably aren't any tickets left for this one.
