times have changed...

is it Thursday already? it's been a bit of a crazy week here.. (which is kind of why I've been I bit mia the past couple of days)... first off... last week my washing machine broke down... boo urns. so les and I went shopping.. (that part is ok). haha and we decided that really all of the appliances are getting old, and we should upgrade... a pretty big decision, I think.. but I am happy we did it! i'm loving my new appliances (really, the things that make me happy seems to have changed over the years lol)... however, we're still waiting on a dryer. ha. apparently it should arrive on Saturday. we didn't get it along with the rest of the appliances on Tuesday because it was severely damaged. someone must have dropped something mighty heavy on it... anyhoo, sat it should arrive... meaning sunday is most certainly a laundry day. which really really needs to happen, as les is going to sea on Monday.
just for the week though. so it's all good, and I should be able to get caught up on knitting.. (at least that's the plan).
yesterday though was a special day for les and I... it was our anniversary! 9 years already! I can't believe how fast the time goes. so of course, appliances (I've heard is actually the gift to give for your 8th) will do just fine :)
we spent the afternoon going grocery shopping and I had a dentist appointment in the morning. hahah certainly not your most romantic of anniversaries... but it was a good one. we cuddled up watching a movie before crashing. it's really the little things...

at any rate. I call myself a very blessed girl. i'm so happy to have this life. to be able to do what I love, and make an income doing it, and still be home for my little man. xoxo.
however today needs to be a massive work knitting day... sadly I don't think i'll be able to finish my robin in time for knit city. but the date hasn't passed yet, so I suppose you never know. having to get up at 5:30 today is nice though. (but you can't quote me on that) as hopefully today i'll get a head start. :) I know this post isn't really showing off anything on the needles or anything... but I wanted to pop in and let you know why I've been so quiet.. :)

what are you up to today? what's on your needles? now where's my coffee? xo


  1. Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby ~ each year is a treasure no matter how you celebrate your good fortune!

  2. Happy Anniversary! We've just celebrated 8 years. Oh I feel your pain, our washing machine broke earlier this year and I was heartbroken. It was two weeks before a fancy new once with a HUGE drum was delivered… my friends were soooo sick of me wittering on about how much laundry I could fit in a single load, but hey I just think they were just jealous! Enjoy xx

  3. Happy Anniversary! Sounds like it was a good one :) ~Stephanie

  4. Happy Anniversary!!! And hurray for new appliances!
    I don't think I'll be finished my sweater for Knit City, either, but I was thinking of a new hat ... Maybe chevrons ... I have a couple skeins of madtosh vintage that want to be something, but the tosh mo light in flouro rose is also beckoning to be knit! What to do .... ;)

  5. Happy Anniversary and lucky girl on the appliances :)
