catching up...

It's been crazy since last Thursday.

Friday I had a wee bit of oral surgery and was down for the count for the rest of the day. I'm finally getting back to more solid foods and I'm done with the heavy pain killers and just on ibuprofen.

I had the surgery at 8:00 a.m. Friday and was home by 10:30 in the morning after a stop at the pharmacy and grocery store. D is still laughing about the trip to the Pharmacy. We dropped off the prescription and then wandered over to QFC to grab all manner of things that count for soft foods. Then we wandered back to the pharmacy (apparently I was weaving because D kept grabbing at me). At the pharmacy they asked my last name and I just sat there and stared at the pharmacy assistant like he was speaking Portuguese. D answered with a chuckle. Then the assistant asked my date of birth, again, blank stare until D answered correctly which earned him a huge crazy smile from me and a nod of approval. I would say after that display that I'm lucky the guy didn't give me sugar pills.
pretty sure this is the look i gave the pharmacy assistant. I was also still clenching
a square of gauze in the hole in my mouth...

the rest of Friday is pretty spotty. I know I tried to knit and had enough wherewithal to put it away.
There was a lot of hunkering down and catching up on TV that I haven't seen since last year wrapped up in an antique quilt that still smells like my moms house.

Saturday was better and more productive knitting wise... Therefore I have some finished objects for you :)
Well one of them has been finished for a while I just had to wait till after the baby shower to post about it!

Nurse Brown
I should also mention briefly. Mr. Brown had a rough day last Monday (the 13th) that required an emergency run to the vet followed by his own soft food diet, probiotic powder, antibiotics, and some IV fluids. Luckily it wasn't serious and he is doing quite well now, but Saturday we both snuggled in bed with Gabby in the chair next to us and watched movies. Like I've said before, Mr. Brown is a champion snuggler.

I think I've finally got the smell out of the dogs room...

Finished Object #1:
Baby Frock by Hannah Fettig
Yarn: Cascade Pacific Chunky Acrylic and Superwash Merino
Needle: Size 10
Super simple, super cute, and completely wearable for a long time for baby. Can go from dress to tunic as the baby grows. I am especially fond of the buttons that I chose.

Finished Object #2:
Cream & Sugar Cowl by Alana Dakos
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Sox that Rock in Oopsie Daisies, the 2013 Valentines day colorway
Needle Size 6
Love it. Love it. Love it. I made one years ago in Plucky Fingering in the color Emerald City and I love that one. I made one in Knit Picks Palette in Cream for my mom at Christmas and that one turned out absolutely lovely. This one is squishy and colorful and currently in day number two of wearing. It's perfect for spring in Seattle where you need just a little something extra to keep the cold rain drops and wind from sneaking under your collar. I plan on wearing this one a lot this spring. It's perfect for me!

We have a busy weekend ahead. My best friend from Minnesota will be heading my way Friday morning with her son for a whirlwind visit and we have a packed schedule!

Happy Wednesday!
