One of those days.

Ever had one? One of those days that you should have just stayed in bed? One of those days that no matter what you touched, you wrecked it? Oh, yeah, it is one of those for me today. I should have known within the first 2 minutes of getting out of bed at 5 AM!!! Couldn't sleep.....decided coffee must be made, but in the dark. I don't know isn't worth the psychology probably needed to figure out why I do anything.... On the way to the kitchen in the dark, I accidentally kicked the cat AND knocked their water bowl into oblivion. Finally made it to the coffee pot after putting a towel on the worst of the cat bowl water mess....dropped the entire filter complete with old grounds onto the floor...and cabinet....and dishwasher.....and leg. Who knew that wet coffee grounds could fly that far? Dropped first cup of coffee on my other leg and remaining clean cabinets. Should I drive today? Reed knives are out of the question.

Here are my first pair of finished socks for Summer of Socks. :0)

Log Cabin socks from Handknit Holidays. This pattern was a fast knit in terms of time spent as it is a worsted weight. Not my normal weight for socks, but it was a gift from the Socks for Soldiers group owner and I am donating it back to go to a soldier. Most of my socks this summer will be going to that group or perhaps some sort of charity. I am thinking of cooking something up...stay tuned on that front.

She doesn't LOOK like a monster, does she? Her innocent look is her secret weapon. Don't let it fool ya.

Trying to take a IS water. ;0)

I thought no one saved turtles anymore. I just read a friend's entry about how she saves turtles. I love that. I have always had a soft spot for them and stop whenever possible without risking life and limb. I recently stopped at a tollbooth on the turnpike to tell the tollbooth man about a turtle on the road. I only wanted to ask him to send someone to get the poor thing off of the turnpike before he gets killed or kills someone...(I am the only one who actually swerved) !!! I am sure from the look on his face that the tollbooth guy could only see a strange mad woman waving her hands around in the car speaking a launguage he obviously didn't understand ......TUR-TLE... TUR-TLE....OH God! What's the universal sign for turtle????........ Can't you see? It's a matter of turtle life and death?

Those socks look fabulous!

I'm a turtle rescuer too. I always get them out of the middle of the road. Poor things just need a bit of help sometimes.

It's always one of those days till I get enough coffee in me!

The socks are gorgeous! So nice of you to give them away.

Love the pics of the critter kiddies.

Aren't those socks a fun fast knit? Yours look great! The soldier will love them that gets them.

There are no turtles to save around here but I'm sure I'd be there.

As for your day - there's no remedy except going back to bed and starting over tomorrow. It can't be helped and it must be done.

I have had a week full of those days.

I think I need to do some of those socks. Between the Grasshopper STR club socks and the Bayerische, I'll be lucky if I finish ONE sock during Summer of Socks!

Are you staying dry?
