Thus far this week I've worked 22 hours over two days and due to carryover/comp time from last week I will have my 40 in today. Been working a failure review board and its been a large quagmire of data and attempting to get enough info to make an educated stab and what went wrong. We don't have the hardware since it was destroyed in the test and unrecoverable. A lot of what I've been doing it the "what if" game and then predicting how like or unlikely a "what if" could be. Tiring and brain power heavy stuff.

We leave for highlands tomorrow and I haven't even written my packing list and I still need to work a full day tomorrow. Sighs. Oof.

I've been making these to much acclaim.

Quick Pickles:
A cucumber or 2 partially skinned and sliced thin
Dill weed
Salt
Pepper
Garlic powder
Olive Oil
Cider Vinegar

Place cucumbers in a bowl with a tight fitting lid.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Put in a bit of oil and a bit more vinegar than oil.
Sprinkle with dill until the top of the cucumbers are covered in a blanket of it.
Put lid on container and shake to incorporate.
Open lid and check that everything is coated with the ingredients. If not add more vinegar.
Put lid on and shake again and place in fridge.
Shake container every couple of hours and then let sit overnight for maximum flavor.

Well, my post Estrella funk is subsiding. I was able to clean a chunk of the house and that made the headspace better. Got some court business handled and I can see things starting to fall into place. Plus I've gotten two good nights of sleep which does a world of good on my mental well being.

Head to Phx today to hang with the college crewe for some bday celebrations in the group. Benton will have Inara to pal around with and that will be good.

Sunday will be court planning and final cleanup around the house. The bathrooms are a might scary. It will all be good though. Looking forward to having time to chill and regroup.

Got lots done with lots of help from [livejournal.com profile] ickaimp and [livejournal.com profile] swordmage. Thank you ladies.

Also had a funny nap time. Benton got naked and then peed all over his bedding. Funny for all of us and the commentary was priceless.

Also got some good family news and that also made the day for lots of us.

Now time to knit and go to bed.


The To Do List:

We got rained out today so [livejournal.com profile] swordmage, her hubby and [livejournal.com profile] ickaimp came over and weave stuff. Icka finished the pennants I had started and got half the detail painting on my banner done. I got Mel's new tourney tunic cutout and fabric serged. I cut out a prototype for a new hangerrock to test dimensions for when I cut into my uber spendy handwoven fabric. We got another banner stretched and planned and Icka will be over tomorrow to help get that going.

Willa got lots if fabric ironed and cut out. Dom got a sword taped up and started lacing his new fighting kit.

Mel was feeling crappy and he slept most of the afternoon.

Benton played hard in his room and around the house.

It was a good day. We shall see what tomorrow brings. If we get cancelled I have sewing to do. If we don't I have fighting to do. Yay so a win no matter what really.

Here is the finished shawl for [livejournal.com profile] public_shaylan:

I finished off the edge in black and I think it turned out really nice.

It's been a really, really long time since I had a day to myself. Mel was an awesome husband and got the boy to daycare and I slept in blissfully until almost 9am. Wow. Now part of that is me just being tired from this crazy work week and part is I'm sure I'm fighting getting the crud Mel has. So rest and relaxation is my goal today.

I got a good protein laden breakfast and am now getting a pedicure before I get lunch and then get my hair done. Then I'll pick up Mr Benton for his head appointment. It's looking really good but I'm pretty sure we have another 3 weeks in the helmet.

As u can see here its almost normal:

In other things I need to clean up the house for Hrafnheim folks coming over for sewing on Saturday afternoon.

Not sure if are heading up for the war practice since Mel has been so sick but we shall see. Maybe I'll take Mariyah and go. Don't know. Will chat with the Hrafn ladies and see.

Course it might also be in my best interest to rest and not get the crud. We shall see.

It was a nice weekend but I really wish I had my 3 day. Not sure when I'm taking that. Maybe Friday this week. Traveling to CA today for a really cool test that I get to observe that is testing hardware I helped redesign. Should be neat buy grueling days. Get to the test site about 1pm and leave there tomorrow for a noon flight home.

I did manage to finish the ansteorran embroidery on Friday just before I landed. I also finally finished my half gloves last night in between trick or treaters. Had some nice costumes. About 25 kids. Faye and holly came by too which was awesome.

Just ran into some old buddies from work who r flying to Portland. Lucky dogs get to go to deshutes. Well time to locked down and fly off.

Well friday I spent sewing on TRM clothing. I needed a few arm measurements but they were all together without sleeves for a fit check for Saturday.

I grilled really well for dinner. I really and truly believe that sweet potatoes on the grill are the best way to prepare them. Our game went well and I finished my socks "that wil touched". I'll link to a picture later. They have their issues but I'm happy I finished another pair and now I can work on a pair for mel. Got further on my lace cowl. And I will be weaving trim soon so I have plenty of projects.

Saturday dawned early and I picked up [livejournal.com profile] snotblossom and we headed to phx for dante's inferno. Which is aptly named event for phx in June. It was fun but a bit warm in the hall. My fitting on the clothes show that I can't do math and I need to take my own measurements. But honestly. Pretty good for me since I've only made clothes for a few people. We left shortly after the pelican circle and hit the fiber factory and temp yarn. We both bought stuff and I got stuff for mel for naalbinding and stuff for Xmas presents for the mom's.

Got home and was exhausted. Stayed up watching tv really late. This morning a sinus headache kicked my butt. Had breakfast with folks and I was not my best. But got home after coffee and drugs. I took a nap and it helped. Still really stuffy but better than when I woke up. I've chatted with [livejournal.com profile] fibergeek and redid damiana's hangerrock. Now I have to iron more fabric and recut stuff for her under dress and then do some weaving. It will be good and Ari is gonna fit check for me at battlemore. Yay!

Well back to projects.

Having a good time and my class went well. I've got another student to teach and that will be cool.

Slept good and that is a good thing.

I finished my first spinning and am now working on my second.

Having a really good time.

Wow. The week sucked and my bday made up for it. I left work after 7 hours. My brain was done. I got my toes done. They are neon pink with white flowers and green rhinestones. Then I got home to roses and cake from mel with the offer to go on a shopping spree at grandmas spinning wheel.

He bought me sock yarn, astral yarn (alpaca, tencel blend), a needle felting kit and some more Manos silk blend. We then were a bit late for sushi with a whole crew of folks for Darrin and i's bday. Then some of us went to Kick Ass. It was awesome. Go see it!

Then mel and I get home and Richard left me boddingtons and a strawberry planter and all of the plants. We are going to be planting things up this afternoon. Such a good day.

So it's gonna be fun to head to the fair. All cool.

Well it's been a very busy few days for this engineer. When I make comments to the vendor like "I think you should handle this part since I did most of your work for you". Well that makes things fun on my part. Still have one more page of our drawing to cross reference to their package tonight when I get home. Got lots of comp time for next week to help with gulf wars.

I am now doing the gusset decreases for my sock and I finished Mina's hat. All good. Course I'm coming back with a haul from Millicents yarns as seen below.

Lots of pretty things to play with.

All good. See everyone later this weekend!

Well in one week we will be setting up tents in Aten Royal. This has been such a strange lead up to war. Very different compared to years previous. I'm feeling the time crunch but I'm not too concerned. I have one thing that must be done. Everything else is good if it gets done.

I got my new fighting coat 75% done. Got a dress 90% and just had a good time at various non sca things with sca people. Mel got his 2nd degree black belt on Sunday and it was weird to be back at the old dojo. All good though.

Well it's the final day of the year. I swear it was just march. Where did the year go? Well. I still have one goal left for the year which is to learn to make biscuits but I can put that on next year.

The year has been odd. Work has been more than hard. Crafts have been successful and some things have gotten done. The new year will bring my new job and hopefully good things. And I hope it brings good things for all of my friends as well. 2009 was too hard for many and that just needs to cease and desist.

Have a food time tonight all and be safe!

After work I came home and got coupons, kissed the hubby and went shopping. I hit a special sale at gap body and picked up some cute underthings. Then I got tshirts for 5 a piece. And then I hit. 30% off sale on a purse that looked really similar to a Fossil one I fell in love with in April. This purse was half what the fossil was and I could side by side compare them since macys sells them too. I also had a 20% off my purchases for the day in my pocket. Yeah I got a new purse. Oh and I also had a credit from a return on my card to it was even cheaper. Tee hee.

After that it was knit night. The prezzie is still drying but more quickly with the fan on it. All good to ship tomorrow. Especially with the new brooche mel just made.
