I Love Saturdays

Which Card are You?

You are Strength

Courage, strength, fortitude. Power not arrested in the act of judgement, but passing on to further action, sometimes obstinacy.

This is a card of courage and energy. It represents both the Lion's hot, roaring energy, and the Maiden's steadfast will. The innocent Maiden is unafraid, undaunted, and indomitable. In some cards she opens the lion's mouth, in others she shuts it. Either way, she proves that inner strength is more powerful than raw physical strength. That forces can be controlled and used to score a victory is very close to the message of the Chariot, which might be why, in some decks, it is Justice that is card 8 instead of Strength. With strength you can control not only the situation, but yourself. It is a card about anger and impulse management, about creative answers, leadership and maintaining one's personal honor. It can also stand for a steadfast friend.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

Good to know.

Today was great. I worked on this little sweater for a future human:

It will eventually look like that white and blue pictured:

Ah yes. It would appear they are both blue and white. OK. Mine will be the more white one. Does that make sense?

Rebel has been supervising:

He loves the eye lash yarn. I think that is one of the main reasons why I keep it. I don't really knit with it too often. I just can't bear to part with it. He actively goes into the bag where I store it and digs it out.

I played a ton of Tomb Raider. I love action games, especially if the lead character is a female who can kick some serious butt!

I also enjoyed my snack:
and at this point, I would share a lovely picture of said snack, but the computer will not allow that for the moment. Not sure why. :(

I also thought I would share a few pictures of my drive home from work. Since I required new brakes, I had discovered new ways to get home to avoid heavily trafficked areas. That silly need to stop. I just want to drive and keep going until I want to stop, not when someone in from me decides I should stop.

I have some really cool pictures of all the leaves changing around here, but the printer will not co-operate and remove them from the memory card. I am off to have a little chat with the printer.
I hope you all enjoy the week end. :)

Got a New Bag and Pair of Socks

I love my week ends. It is always a mini holiday for me, well for the most part. This week end I feel like I actually did something. When Husband and I were walking through the mall (a very dangerous shortcut), we stumbled upon this little gem:

It is the perfect size to fit my work gear.

and a cat or two,

My other purse (luggage) was beginning to look diseased. It was peeling, holes were forming, and was missing the zipper. It had a good life, but it was time to put it out of its misery.
This one looks to be quite durable. It's fabric is a poly-blend of some sort. It is also kitty approved.

I felt so productive. I had completed the Smelly Socks. They look just like the book. I'm so impressed with myself.

I am now able to focus my attention on the next pair of socks from the Ravelry group:

The beginnings of Ziggy.

I also finished a book I was reading, The Mistress in the Art of Death. I have started another:

I love sci-fi, witch and vampire stories, especially when the lead character is an ass-kicking woman. I'm also a sucker for a good picture on the cover. I know I should not judge a book by its cover, but it does get my initial attention.

While I was knitting up a storm, Husband baked muffins!!!

I've said this before, I absolutely hate cooking or baking or anything involving the stove. He loves it. So, he cooks, I enjoy. It's a win-win don't you think? Those are blueberry by the way. I think tomorrow will be chocolate chip cookies!

While all this domesticity was going on, I am now a brunette. The box said Honey Blond. It lied. Badly.

Not a great picture, but it was midnight. I'll take a better one a little later. I keep jumping when I see my reflections in the mirrors. I'm just not used to it. I do like it though. At least my clothes do not clash like they did when I was a red-head.

On our walk yesterday, we noticed these little guys mucking about on the sidewalk. We had never seen them before. If any of you know what they are, can you please let me know? I found them quite interesting.

They were like amped up ants on a mission.

I think I have filled you all in on what is going on in my little world for the time being. I'm off to enjoy my snack:

I hope Monday wasn't too harsh for any of you. Have a great evening.
P.S New episode of CSI Miami!!! We get to maybe see what in the world is going on with Horatio.
Night all.
