Knit, Purl, Knit

One of the fun things that came with my new job is that the 2 other females in the office LOVE to knit. I myself LIKE to knit. I am not as crazy about it as they are, but I enjoy engaging my needles once in a while.

I also learned that "knit" means "right" and "purl" means "left". Otherwise I still have a very hard time reading knitting patterns.

My goal is to knit a sweater within a year. A sweater I can actually wear.

This weekend I started on a throw/ afghan/ blanket - whatever you wanna call it.

I started with a few rows (1inch) of rainbow colored seed stitch, followed but grey yarn in a 1 row Knit, 1 row Purl pattern. In between there will be some more rainbow colored 1inch wide seed stitch rows. 
Lets see how long it will take me to finish. 
My right wrist is already sore from all the knitting this weekend, lol

Today is the first day in weeks that it is raining outside. 
We really really needed the rain.
The grass in our back yard is mostly brown and the leaves on the trees started turning brown already.

As much as I love the really hot weather down here, I also enjoy a rainy day and some under-90F weather.

I guess Fall is just around the corner.  That means my birthday is around the corner and Halloween... my favorite holiday!

Happy Birthday Rah

On September 1st, our little kittie Rah Orion Fitch turned 1 years old.

He is not so little anymore....

He is still scared of pretty much EVERYTHING, but he now at least has some minutes a day when he wants to be petted and cuddle; mostly in the morning when we get up for work and don't really have time to play with him.

Happy Birthday Rah!

Time flies

Oh my... it has been over a month since I last posted anything on here. Time flies when you are having fun.
I hope every one had as much of a great time int the month of August than I did.
August 2nd I started my new job and I am absolutely LOVING it.  It can be stressful at times and I still have to learn a TON, but I am happy there (as happy as you can get at work... it is WORK after all).
I work with fun people and I feel I can, eventually, be really good at this. 

In the past month, every day I go to work, I am sooooo happy and proud that I am a working woman and not just one of those typically American females who call themselves "stay at home Moms" or " homemakers" just so they don't have to do jack sh*t all day but sit at home, play on the internet 10 hours a day and spend their husbands money. How I loath thee! How dare! How dare these lazy asses think they have ANY right to their husbands money if they contribute absolutely NOTHING to the marriage. 
Hey, if someone just had a kid and they have the financial means for her to stay home with the new baby for a while - good for them. I am talking about those parasites that refuse to work. They never had a real job before they got married and as soon as they found a dumb enough guy who took them they refuse to even think about getting a job every again. 
I am so happy and proud of myself that I  can pull my own weight.  I am financially completely independent. 
I have a career and am still taking care of our household.
... I am getting carried away again.

Anyways, all I wanted to say is that I enjoy working at my new job and I am hoping to be able to stay there for a while and grow and thrive with the business.
I still want to go back to school at some point though, probably online. We'll see.... for now my priorities are my job and the house we will hopefully be able to buy in a few months.
