More green knitting, etc.

First of all, can I just say how irritated I am with my DVR?
We are always putting the kids to bed during Lost, and so we always tape it.
Shouldn't the DVR know that a show is going to run late? Shouldn't it know that a major character, even one I don't particularly care about, getting shot is something that the viewer would like to see?
Oh well, it's a good thing I have you fine folks to keep me in the know.


Second, I have been off Dairy for over two months now and today I tried baking some cookies with vegan butter.
They're o.k. there is a little aftertaste that I can't quite identify, but I like cookies, so all in all I am pleased.

Third, it is May!!! I almost missed this fact, and faithful readers will recall that I have one May Day ritual, I crank up the Lusty Month of May from Camelot and sing along at the top of my voice.

Check.

It is a little windy today, but that didn't stop the Hug-a-Bugs from having a super time at the park this morning.


And fourth, I began a new knitting project on Tuesday.
It's the Elizabeth I pattern from Alice Starmore's Tudor Roses book.


The yarn is Thirteen Mile Sportweight in color Moss.
I am really loving this knitting.
It's mostly stockinette, so it's pretty mindless, which I love.

Enjoy May Day!
Jess
