I just don't feel like doing anything.
I think I did too much over the weekend. Of course, it could be leftover vestiges from the half a prescription strength Benadryl I took at 1am too. The poison ivy won't give up on my right knee and left ankle quite yet.
Of course, the weather going from sunny to overcast didn't help any.
Sat I started on the Oct Daring Cooks Challenge. That took awhile, and a lot of standing in one spot. Had a friend come over for PS3/PS2 games and dinner.
Sun I did the rest of the Daring Cooks Challenge and had the InLaws over for dinner, which was the Challenge. It went over very well, I think. It was tasty, definitely.
Also had the landlord by on Sun. He replaced the porchlight, so we finally have a light out there again. Then I had to show him where the poison ivy was out back. Turns out its worse that I'd thought- it actually spreads through 4 yards, not just ours and Alex and Chris' (it's a townhouse duplex, and it's in our backyard, Alex and Chris' and the duplexes next door both have it starting in their backyards.)
He's coming back next weekend to cut/pull out what he can- its imbedded with briars, virginia creeper and honeysuckle, so it was able to get a good foothold before anyone even noticed. It probably wouldn't have gotten as bad if Chris had kept up with the cutting of the back hill on his side (we put up a 6ft privacy fence partially up the hill between the sides, it was growing through the sections on our side and covers a good part of the fence on their side), but well, Alex and Chris are bachelors and aren't outdoors types, so didn't bother.
He's also coming out Friday night to spray the yellow jacket nest. Hopefully its not that big yet, and we can get rid of it in one try.
The poison ivy I'll have to get RoundUp and spray it as it tries to come back. That'll take a few seasons to completely iradicate. Which is why I told Mark I thought it was actually an alien plant come to take over the planet. Got my newest bracelet listed.
Kaeru Chi, Japanese for 'Frog Pond' is 12 strand kumihimo. Casey thinks the yarn was wool, and I think it's handspun, as it was varying in size as I used it, went thick and thin at times. It's even better looking in person. I'm in love with those Delicas and need to get some more.
I'm on a kumihimo kick lately. I have a finished piece in purple-blue , that I'll turn into a bracelet as well. Then I have a nice, autumn-y colored one, that's a bit thicker, that'll be long enough to be a thick cuff. That one is about half made right now. After that, it's back to a bit of straight beadwork. I really need to finish this cuff I've been working on for months now. I have a potential buyer for it, if I ever get it done.
The cats are good, Caena's good, the gardens are overgrown, and I guess that's my life so far.
