A little behind…

…schedule.  (boy, the pr0n searchers are going to have a blast with that title)

I pulled my May socks before we left for Maine.  Okay, I pulled like three bags and finally went with the third one out of guilt.  (Cookie outed me, so I had to ‘fess up *g*)  I’m still not 100% happy with this choice which is probably why they are still not on the needles…but anyway…my third bag for May contained:

Personal Sock Club - May

Pattern:  Oak Leaf by Kelly Porpiglia

Yarn:  Dye Dreams Luster Sox in “Emerald” purchased at CT S&W 2008

It think it’s possible that the reason why I’m not 100% happy is that this is the second skein of this yarn I have wound up to knit.  The first one had four knots in it which I brought to the attention of the dyer and she sent me a new skein right away with her apologies.  This one had one knot two thirds of the way through the skein but I felt it had been too long since I purchased it to say anything.  I guess I need to get over the fact that I’ll be weaving in ends halfway down the leg of one of my socks and just cast on already. (PMSing?  who, me?  ;op~)

In other exciting news, RR proved once again that there is a very good reason why I waited ten years for a ring.  (btw, Thursday the 7th was our official 10 year anniversary.  On ‘Odd Day’ no less, I think it’s pretty funny since we’re both kinda odd, heh,  but ANYway…) Last Friday he asked me if I was planning on going to NH on Saturday.  I told him no since it’s a bit far (even though Carole‘s not going to Cummington which means I won’t see her in like FOREVER.  :o(( ) so he told me that he would try to arrange for something for us to do on Saturday night and I would need to be ready to go around 6:30 and it was a surprise.  He was being all mysterious about it and I thought it was cool he was trying to surprise me with something so I didn’t ask questions (I know!) and I didn’t try to find out what it was – I didn’t Google, not even once.  (I KNOW!)

So Saturday rolls around and we head out when he gets home from work.  Next thing I know we’re at Shakespeare & Co. in Lenox and I’m wondering what the h?  There is no. way. he’s going to sit through three hours of Shakespeare.  As he’s trying to find a parking spot, he tells me that he has brought me to a read-through of the new in-the-works Broadway production of Sense & Sensibility, the musical.  I am…speechless.  (yeah, yeah, I know.)

Austen.  Set to music.  His own idea.  He is willing to sit through three hours of Austen.  Set to music. With singing.

For me.

So we did and he did and it wasn’t bad – it was kinda awesome to be a part of such a thing – and he earned some MAJOR points and when S&S the musical hits broadway I can say I saw it when it was still in development.  How cool is that?!

p.s.  Tonight is the annual Fire Dept. shindig – guess who’ll be waving her left hand around like a crazy woman?  yeahthat’llbemethanks.  ;o)
