How I Spent My Day

So, I go to school on Monday/Wednesday/Friday (I think I’ve mentioned that before…) and I leave for school at 7:15 in the Morning. I usually get a ride from my friend who goes to school in the same city (It’s about 20-ish miles away) and ride the bus home (which takes about 50 minutes.. argh). I went to school today and got there about 8:00, and my class starts at 8:30. So I walk onto the campus and I see a bunch of people walking around, and I thought I heard someone mention a Blackout. So I stop some girl and ask her, and she says that there is a power outage and classes are cancelled. Sweet! So I got on the bus at 8:10 and was home at 9:00. Which is cool, because I didn’t have to go to school. But, it sucks because I could have slept in, rather than waking up at 6 just to make a round trip into the city. Oh well. So, what to do with my day off? Homework? Heck no.

I made a crappy dishcloth:

The pattern was great, but me and my crappy knitting skills made it look not-so-fancy. But, it doesn’t have to look fancy, right? I mean, it’s a dishcloth! I really want to make another, with a verigated yarn to show off all the short-rows, but I had the ugly red color in my stash. I used the leftovers to make a little washcloth- scrubby for the shower:

Size H-8 crochet hook, 20 Half-Double crochets across (I think) with a single crochet border.

And that’s all I got to talk about today.

No, wait, I lied. While I was sitting around and knitting today, I noticed that the Search and Rescue helicopters were flying around alot. Then I looked out the window and there was a fire on the hill:

About half an hour after I took the picture, you could see flames. But, they got it put out and all was well. I tell ya, people are scared to live in California because of earth quakes, but we have more wild fires than anything else. And the occasional floods.

  1. Well, I happen to like your dishcloth!! And remember – it’s only a dishcloth!!!!

    Love my socks:D

  2. Don’t you just love it when classes are cancelled? My only class on Friday is cancelled this week.

    I’m glad to hear that the fire was put out quickly and that all is well.

  3. Phew! For a minute there, I thought you were going to say when you got home, that classes had resumed, and the blackout was over. Glad you got the day off! I get nervous when I see search and rescue helicopters, don’t you?

  4. I saw that in the paper and thought lots of happy students today! It was nice meeting you at Thursday night knitting. Hope to see you again soon.
