First, it's been a while since I posted a Saturday Sky photo. This one, taken from my front porch this morning, makes me happy. I'm drawn to stormy skies in photos and paintings. Winter paintings, stormy paintings - love them.
And this may be the first time ever that I've made my digital camera behave with a gray sky, so that's something. What this photo needs is a black border. I've got to get that Photoshop installed! Such a slacker I am.

Now, isn't that better? God, I love you people.
It's time for a little pin oak action. What with the poor lighting, it's not as beautiful in these photos as it is in reality. It is putting on quite a show this year. The year started out very wet, so the tree grew and leafed out incredibly well. It's starting to encroach on the neighbor's yard and almost reaches our house. When I planted this thing, I never, ever thought I'd see the day when it almost touched the house.
Those who have been following along might remember that according to that biorhythms site, today is the day I will be afflicted with a serious case of The Stupids. I guess that's only fitting after such a high from work last night. Land with a thud -- ah, what the hell.
But this morning I got an email from Ann telling me about a challenge she posted for me in her blog. Well, just yesterday I was emailing several people that I hoped and intended for this to be a full-on KNIT WEEKEND. Yes! Believe it or NOT! I really was planning to work on my 2nd liner mitt and maybe get started on the outer mitts -- nothing so lofty-goaled as a sweater. But maybe I'll just give Ann a run for her money. What do you think? But should it be the CPH or the Ribby? Will I finish a sweater in 2007? Who's taking bets?
