Friday Roundup

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 9:01 am

Well yee-haw! It’s Friday ladies and gents! And the weather is wonderful! It’s 51 degrees, cloudy, light showers and I want to go home, put on my jammies, snuggle under a blanket and knit! Summertime in Texas is just to damn hot to have yarn in your hands and feel any sort of ability to make a sweater! So, tonight I think I’m going to dust off my needles, bust out my unfinished projects and sort through my yarn stash. We’ll see what I come up with!

Per your request, here are photos of my cute new boots! Nick helped me pick them out. Didn’t he do a good job? There were a pair that were the same style but were purple. I would have died for those, but they didn’t have them in my size. But I love these! The stitching on the leg is pretty, don’t you think?

Yesterday’s meeting with my lawyer went well. It wasn’t for the ‘final’ signing, so I’m not divorced yet. But I’m looking forward to it! Most everything is ironed out. But, there’s a couple of things we still have to discuss. So, Sunday evening I’m supposed to go to dinner with my STBX and his dad. Groan. It should be so much harder to get married. Maybe if it were more difficult, people would take it a bit more seriously.

Anyone have any big plans for the weekend? I might go see a movie, and of course, I have my Sunday morning run. But only 2:40 this time! We’re starting our taper before the race. Otherwise, I’m going to force my slaves children to clean their rooms, sort through summer clothes and bring out the winter wardrobe. We’ll see what, if anything, still fits. Happy Weekend all!

P.S. As of this morning, yours truly has had 25,000+ hits to her little ‘ol blog. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You like me, you really, really like me! 🙂


  1. Very snazzy boots! Our weather is strangely similar to yours today. I just want to snuggle on the couch too. I don’t know how to knit but could find a good book I’m sure. My plans? I have a mid-term on Monday en francais and a research paper looming on the horizon. I’ll be doing that. Oh, and there’s that Saturday afternoon at the bar round 5ish. We harrass all the Penn State fans.

  2. I’ve been home all week while Samantha and hubby are celebrating their anniversary, so I’m enjoying the cool, crisp temps for you. I sat on my balcony this morning watching the sun come up over the golf course, sipping coffee and comfy in my sweats.

    Gotta love it… while we can. Betcha it’ll be in the 80’s again next week. Grrr….

  3. I sleep so much better in cool weather. I think its the weight of the old quilt on my legs that helps. I don’t sleep well in the summer cuz the sheets don’t weigh my legs down enough.

    Very nice boots, but I agree, purple would have been sexy.

    As for the ex, just take some arsenic with you. It takes much less effort to be a widow than a divorcee 😉

  5. Thankfully the weather has changed. Cool boots, not for me, cool for you I mean. Good idea on keeping them slaves I mean children working hard. There are far too few households that don’t instill a work ethic in their kids. Who the hell is going to pay for this huge Bush deficit?

  11. Michele sent me your way, Lass.

    The Nancy Sinatra quote above by Wislon was so appropriate. Did you post about your meeting with your soon-to-be-EX and the boots for that reason?

    Good luck with the race. My running days are behind me but I remember them fondly.

  15. Love the boots! They come in 8.5B?

    Are you going to throw a divorce party? I went to a couple that were really fun, although I don’t recommend the bad marriage part leading up to it. Heh.

    My weekend looks to be about like yours.

  18. Well, I bet those boots are cute, but for some reason I can’t see them. I love cooler weather and wish it would cool down here. It was 89 today. Hot! Have a great weekend and hope that dinner doesn’t get you down.

  19. Thanks for the knitting suggestion. If I had more time to run out to the store, I would’ve taken you up on that one! I’ll be bringing a book I’ve been wanting to read. And I’m bringing my laptop (just in case I can get a WIFI connection…).

    I like the boots, BTW! Hope you have a great weekend.

  20. Nice boots! I was hoping you’d have them up and you do:) Sounds like a great weekend. I need to do the clothes switch thing too. Its still warm here so I’m probably going to put it off…again 😉

  21. Take the knitting needles to dinner with you, they might come in handy!

    Hope the training has gotten you where you want to be, I guess you’ll find out soon. I’m polishing up for the big race at the end of this month in NC, getting some track work and hill climbs in so I can be ready for the mountains. This change of weather came at the right time, feels great, makes you feel, well, perky!
