I'm A Princess

A temporary princess, at least.  I took a half day off work and went to the dentist.  I got a temporary crown put on, and the permanent crown will be ready in about three weeks.  I wonder if that'll make me queen. 

I'd planned on going to get a chocolate milk shake afterward, to console myself, only Burger King's shake machine was out of order, and I didn't feel like battling the road construction to get over to McDonald's or Wendy's.  So, I just came on home and made myself an extra chocolaty glass of chocolate milk.

It was a beautiful, sunny day, with temps in the mid 60's-- and the retriever trials are over-- so I got to take the dogs for a walk.  It was nice to have our dirt road all to ourselves again.  I enjoy the solitude.  I think I saw one of the bald eagles again, but I never could get close enough to be sure.  And look!  I got a tan:

I am no longer blinding white.  Now, I'm more um...eggshell.  Yeah, and by the end of the summer, I'll actually be closer to ecru.  I'm so excited!  

It felt so good being at home and not being completely worn out that I actually cooked. Fried chicken and french fries.

I'm expecting the nutrition police to break down my door in 3...2...1...

I'm sad to say that precious little progress has been made on the Monkey sock these last two days. The waiting hat, on the other hand, is almost ready for me to begin the crown decreases.

I guess that means I do a lot of waiting.

One thing I do know is that it means I'm almost out of washable, worsted wool.   And that means road trip!  I may just have to get up to Southaven before our Memphis Meetup next month. 

Or else put in another order to Knitpicks...

Hey, it's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it!

Thanks, Kristen! Yes, it was good.

I agree with Kristen! I was just wondering if you'd come up here and taunt our local nutrition police for me! :D

LOL! I'd love to!
