Hot Cocoa Swap – Question of the week #4

What is your most memorable vacation? Where did you go? What made it memorable?

Well that’s easy!
Vegas 2004 …I was out there for work fell in love with him. We had to work as a team on a difficult decision and did it so well .. that night we became something more. It was a defining moment in my life that I will never forget no matter what happens. It meant more to me than anything I have experienced felt or been part of. In a candid moment I opened up and trusted someone for the first time with very sensitive and tender emotions. I expressed myself and was very honest about something. To my surprise he felt the same, appreciated my honesty and opened up as well. Which is hard – because hes just not the chatty emotional lets discuss type.
I cant tell you the juicy details GAWD !!!
Fast Forward. Vegas June – after several trips back – as we love to go.. He takes me for my birthday and treats me to one of the best concerts of my life.. Roger Waters – Dark Side of the Moon.
He had this whole trip concocted from the get go – his family joined us and we all really had a nice time. Then in the midst of it – he tells me – oh we are going to a show.. COOL !! NEAT !! What show?
“teee heee I cant tell you.. .”
Finally after hours and days of wondering.. we arrive at the MGM . Everywhere are Floyd shirts. I had REALLY wanted to go when they were in Atlanta but missed them. I was floored. I was so excited I cried.

All this started… 2004 with one choice.

Topic of the Week #3

What is your most random childhood memory

I have so many. My memories are random because we moved lived and changed so much in my youth due to family changes.

I remember the smell of the desert. Thats the first place I really felt at home and not installed somewhere in military housing, or home restoration projects.

It was a beautiful smell especially at sunrise or in the midst of a summer monsoon. Tucson was not polluted so the fresh earthy smell wasnt layered over exhaust or such. It filled your lungs and wasnt heavy sweet or dry. I loved carrying it on my sky when I came from outside or hanging clothes on the line and having them smell like it too.

House O Snow

Now that we’re in the thick of ‘Winter’… has your knitting changed to match the season? Are you moving on from dishcloths, and tank tops to afghans, hats and mittens? Has your yarn changed from silk or cotton to wool, superwash or heavier cottons?

Its been much warmer here in Georgia than around most of the nation. Tonight with snow gently falling outside, its the first time I have felt what seems to be the winter season!
I only wish it had been like this around Xmas 🙂
I do change seasonal projects. I get very attracted to warmer woolens and heavier fibers come the fall season. Last year like this year, I vowed I would make gauntlets gloves and mitts.

Yea no.

SO come summer I am going to have all this glorious silk cashmere wool blends. Perhaps I should knit these things during the summer.
Well see its perfect…
You would want to finish it and get it wrapped up and put away for a fall gift or such so it doesnt sit hot and sticky on your lap…

Hmmmm Brainstorm.. I think I am on to something here.

Psyche your knitting….
