Green Eggs and Ham

I've been slacking on the blog front lately. I can blame it on being sick and still generally negative and didn't want to torture all of you with that.

I am starting to feel better, but the fire smoke is aggravating things, and let me tell you that Biacin is EVIL EVIL stuff. I don't like plorking at home improvement stores. :-( But I will finish the course because I'm a good little patient. (heh - I crack myself up)

So last Tuesda
y I had to run an errand for hubby up in Healdsburg and my friend Susan lives up there and I was like, ooh I can take her egg carton back and finally meet the chickens. As I hit town I saw that the Farmers Market was that night.

So I get hubby's errand done (client's office got broke into and went and picked up their server) and headed back out of town and gave Susan a call. Hmmm, she's not home. So I call her cell. Sure enough she's at the Farmers Market, so I turn around.

I found Susan at the town square and chatted for a bit and made sure she had more eggs for me
to take home. I had to wait till 4 on the dot to actually make the purchase. LOL I love seeing her, she's just the sweetest thing.

So I got eggs from Susan, and then I got some cherries and peaches and boysenberries from a couple of other stands and headed home.

We spent the weekend working on the bedroom remodel some more (moved back in Saturday night), so I got up yesterday and wanted to make breakfast (see I told you I'm sick).

Green Eggs and Ham (prosciutto - mmm Cittero) omelets.

Hubby got a three egg omelet and made a two eggs one for myself.

I started my Fawkes sock at midnight Friday for Summer of Socks 2008.

I cannot believe how fast it's working up. I'm doing it on DPNs, and I'm already at the gusset decreases. The pattern is pretty easy but I still don't have it memorized.

The yarn is just scrumptious. Claudia Handpaint in Citrus. The color is brighter in person and perfect for something based on flames.

And the best thing...

It fits so far.

I will probably do Nanner socks next or the SoS only pattern that Wendy created for this year's SoS, I have some obnoxious stripey yarn that will look great with it.

I am dying from jealousy.

I'm not an orange person myself but I LOVE the socks and the yarn is gorgeous!

I'm still so intrigued by those green eggs. Who knew chickens could lay eggs in colors other then white?

Love the socks!

We were so seperated at birth. I'm in the middle of writing a post about the Farmer's Market.

I also have the beginning of a pair of Fawkes socks around here somewhere. I love that pattern.

AND I'm allergic to Biaxin. See? Spooky.

I'm so stealing the word "plorking".

Oh sorry you are still struggling with chest ookiness. Not fun, neither is this smoke!

I am totally tickled to see the eggs and hear of what you did with them! Sounds great!

Sending XXOO
