rain over for the moment

I suppose it's inexcusable to blog and not include photos. But let's just try here. I'm coming off about 10 days of rain, here in the islands, and it's so humid that mold is growing on our suede couch in the koa room! Ugh! Today was spectacular, allowing for a polishing of the toenails (OPI "My Auntie Drinks Chianti") and some spinning of the lovely purple roving into nice DK single ply, all outdoors. A long chat with the sister-in-law, and some sleeping in. Basically, my good friends St. John's Wort, Dark Chocolate and I are counting the days til we get our 3-week vacation coming up in about two.

P is gone more often than he is here; he has one more half-week on the Big Island, then he's home for the rest of 2007. Dogs are hairy and muddy.

I'm off to go drink some Sauvignon Blanc and knit on Must Have, who is taking awhile, but is pleasant nevertheless.

Wow, I could not live with that. Mold is creepy even with cute little birds nests. Where's the progress picture of the Must Have? I'm trying to finish a gift scarf, then must frog another failed gift scarf and start over. Sigh. But the next two days are a conference in DC -- so no reporting to work, but getting to sleep in own bed. The topic is too boring ot describe. But out of the office and potential knitting time is great!
