Check this out. It's from my statistics logger, that keeps track of hits on this blog:
Nearly half of my visitors are from somewhere else. I'm all about diversity (in case you hadn't noticed) and started this blog to meet people not-where-I-am, so this is really freaking cool. (And if you ARE from the US, you ain't chopped liver, either. Really. But, I'm sorry, different cultures are interesting to me. I KNOW yours.)
This morning I suddenly realized it's the twelfth of December. (Yes, I'm a little slow these days.) Which means we're leaving for Ohio in a week or so. WHICH MEANS I NEED TO FINISH A DAMN SCARF AND A SHITLOAD OF COOKIES!!! So the oven's pre-heating and I'm going to try baking while The Baby is awake. She's completely blocked from the kitchen by a baby gate; safety is not an issue. But keeping an eye on her while IN the kitchen, ah, that will be a trick. We'll see how it goes.
The light green scarf is nearly done (I expect to finish it today, even with cookie baking) and the last one (in beige/tan) isn't 'due' until the 26th of December, so I can work on it in the truck and in Ohio if I have to. I will also take along the Steeked Jacket to work on, but I can't work on it openly until after my father-in-law opens HIS, so that it's a surprise.
I think I finally figured out what the problem is with the migraines.
I'm a vampire.
It explains everything. Yesterday I went outside and as soon as the sun hit my eyes, it was instant headache. I've got a pair of super-dark sunglasses that I wear nearly everywhere but inside... see? Vampire. I've told the husbeast I'm in danger of disintigrating if I go outside, but he's not buying it. He wouldn't go to the grocery store for me (he's been working 18 hours a day), so I have to go today.
On the Air Force base.
Ohohoh. Almost forgot. See this hat?
(Okay, it's a bad picture, going up The Baby's nose at a strange angle.) My mother-in-law knit it for The Baby while I was pregnant. It was a bit large for last winter, but this year it fits just fine, and it even matches her coat! It's the only hat she'll leave on her head, too. Awwwwwww.
