Mermaid Mania, Movies, Munchkins,Money

Happy Halloween one and all.
Tomorrow, Bev and I are casting on our Mermaids, I received mine last Christmas as a gift from DH. It will be great to mark it as a FO soon. I am soooo tried of the blues in Foxie. It , too, will still get attention, but the thrill of casting on Mermaid will surely overpower it for a while. This is the colorway of my kit...purty eh? We seem to have one or two more maniacs casting on with us, terrific, the more the merrier...encouragement is a great producer of FOs. So if you have a Mermaid waiting to be started, finished, let us know.
They have been digging up my street and the surrounding streets going on 6 months. It is nerve wracking as some days when you leave, if you can leave, you can't get back. I take great pleasure in leaving just because I want to to, driving around the block and coming back. Today I had to wait 15 minutes whilst they rearranged their trucks so I could get out. Sometimes they park in the driveway completely blocking you in. I needed to get DS1 car out to get an inspection sticker and now had no idea when I would be able to get back home so I went to the movies. I saw RENDITION, somewhat sad, somewhat violent movie. I knit for as long as I could on a sock, until they really turned the lights down. there were only 4 of us in the theatre and I was going to ask them for a little a more light but heard someone snoring so thought it best not to wake them.
Now I am home and made these little Halloween goodie bags for DS2, it was rumored some munchkins Trick or Treat in the dorm and I wanted him to have some treats to hand out.
He said today it wasn't happening but he will be home this evening(early appointment tomorrow)so would hand them out here. Now 28 bags is more than enough for dorm Treating but not so for the home, alas, I am not doing more as I find I always do more no matter what it is, baking, gift giving, knitting...and this one time I am tired.
So did I mention I worked Monday for the 10th night in a row. last week ending up at 72 hours, the government decided it should keep almost 1600 dollars of my money. Just once a year you should get to keep your entire check, just once.

OMG - your sweater is gorgeous! And I loved that you were so respectful of your sleeping movie mate!!:) I don't think we'll ever get our whole check - heck, that wouldn't even be American:)

Take care!

I found your site from the mitten swap - love the colors for the mittens. I can't wait to see them finished. Then I saw the picture of foxie. Stunning! Would you mind sharing the name of the pattern and where i could find it? Thanks, Molly :)

Cheryl- Love the goodie bags, and the color of your Mermaid-

They took how much from your cheque? Hardly makes it worth having a paid job.
