Yesterday Miss Butterfly and I went on a long pokewalk. What we’ve now come to call our long walks together which also involve pokemon hunting. To be honest, the game is about over for me at this point, as I have almost everything there is to have, and so it’s boring. BUT, she doesn’t, so we still hunt for her, and it’s a great way to convince her to head out with me.

Upon our return, she’d asked if we could watch some Lemony Snicket. I told her no, I didn’t really feel like watching anything right now. She took that “right now” over to Mr. Ink, and asked HIM for a family movie night. He agreed, and said he’d order pizza. I got a BIT annoyed because I’d just told her no, and she explained that she’d taken that “right now” statement as an indication that later might be ok. It was a little underhanded, but I can’t really resist family time.

In fact, she was unusually all up in Mr. Ink’s business yesterday. First she got him to agree to family movie night, then she got him to order pizza, then she wanted to go WITH him to pick up pizza. AND, they decided on a movie together. Which turned out to be Jaws. A movie she’s seen before, and thinks is hilarious. ¬†All fine with me, as really I just needed a few minutes of quiet prior to the movie.

Upon their return, I found out that Mr. Ink had scratched my new car! He scratched the mirror when trying to get the car out of the garage. It really IS a tight fit. I am simultaneously annoyed and relieved it wasn’t me who put the first scratch on the new car. He’s promised me touch up paint, and I’ll be holding him to that.

In any case, we had a lovely evening watching Jaws and eating pizza. And I knit, naturally. I worked on my duotone cowl because it’s awfully close to being done, and I figured it was a good one for “scary” movie watching.

I didn’t get photos of it though. I just have a photo of the latest reversible circles of lace scarf I am knitting. This one is another for Miss Marja project out of Miss Marja’s handspun.


It’s looking good! It’s my current lunchtime work project. Which means it’s slow going as usual, but there’s no technical rush, and it’s such luscious yarn that it’s nice to spend time with it, if that makes sense.

That’s about it for around here. I’d hoped to report that I had another grant out the door, at least. I’ve got 4 due this week. But, sadly, I am sitting around waiting on people to give me documents and information. I am at a total stand still! It looks like the remainder of this week is going to get ugly quickly. BUT, it’ll be over soon? There’s that at least.
