Things That Make Me Go Hmmm

  • Hmmm

With apologies to The Bangles, it’s Just Another Manic Random Monday.

~Have you seen Air Set? It’s a very cool online calendar and my family started using it last week. It’s really helpful for keeping track of everyone’s busy schedules.

~I can’t believe I never posted a photo of my wonderful Special Swap package from Kat. The theme was a picnic but Kat decided to just send great yarn-y type things and that was just absolutely fine with me. I’m really excited to try that Tofootsies!

~October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I’ve had my annual screening, how about you?

~I’ve been doing a fair amount of spinning lately, trying to “spin down” the stash in preparation for Rhinebeck purchases.

~And speaking of Rhinebeck, 4 more sleeps. Squeee! Who will be there?

  1. Yum, lots of pretty yarns. I’m so envious of all of you that get to go to Rhinebeck! I hope I’ll be able to make it someday.

    Also, hooray for the clear mammogram!

  2. Kat certainly does a fabulous job of packing a picnic! WOW!
    Your handspun yarn is Gorgeous!
    Rhinebeck…sigh… maybe next year…
    Good going on the mammo!

  3. FOUR, only four and you get to see everyone and have a grand time shopping? I’m going to miss seeing everyone. Your spinning looks fab.

  4. Great news on your screening, I have my appointment set!
    Fantastic swaps…beautiful spinning.
    I wish I could be at Rhinebeck, maybe next year!

  5. Good news on the mammo! I have mine done as part of my annual physical in July every year and have switched to a new imaging center. That is so much like a spa I am almost looking forward to the next mammogram! Seriously, as I was standing there, hokding onto the machin and looking up, I see a lighted ceiling panel with blue sky, clouds, and cherry blossoms! (They even have fountains and a computer in the waiting area…)

  6. That online calendar looks really cool.

    Your spinning is so beautiful! Wish I were going to be at Rhinebeck, but alas, not this year 🙁 Hopefully, next year 🙂

  7. I’ve had my annual mammo AND an ultrasound. They really are over-achievers with me. But better safe than sorry, I guess.

    See you in Rhinebeck! I can’t believe it’s so close! I’d better get my work done, damnit!

  8. I’ll see you at Rhinebeck, baby!

    Your Airset link seems to log me in as you. (It says “Welcome Carole Julius.” I’m worried about security…

  9. I just had my very first mammogram! It wasn’t as bad as I expected. I had heard so many horror stories but frankly, it was a piece of cake. Now I just need to drag my mother in for hers…..should be fun, fun, fun.

  10. Oh, that’s good news. Yes, I had my first mammogram this year. It’s the first year I didn’t have to have a full chest x-ray to scan for the other resident cancer so I dutifully reported to have the porch squished. All clear. Whew. (And my liver’s clean, too.)

    My MIL, however, had many years of clear mammograms and this year they found a five-year-old set of breast cancer tumors so she’s going through chemo and radiation. Please be ruthless with your self-check because sometimes it’s more effective than the scans!

    Have fun at Rhinebeck.

  11. Yay mammogram!

    I’ll reach out my hand, it’s true,
    Snatch merino fleece from you,
    Where there is fiber,
    I’ll be there.

    (Now I’ll have *that* song in my head all day, and this time I have no one but myself to blame.)

  12. I’ll be there! It’s my first one, and I can’t wait!

    I made some socks using Tofutsies recently. I thought they would be kind of droopy, because even on US1 needles, they felt loose, but they firmed and softened after a wash, and now they’re one of my favorite pairs!

  13. Delighted you got a clean bill o’ health. Important stuff to do.

    Hah – spin down the stash. I like that one.:)

  14. What a great package! Your handspun looks beautiful. I’ve been spinning down my stash as well. I can’t wait for Rhinebeck, hope to see you there!

  15. Hey, Carole, we’ll be there, sans child…

    Are you doing Winebeck again? We’re not really up for the Morehouse Merino zoo, but no one at Ravelry has announced where the Ravelry party would be, and we’re trying to figure out what to do that Saturday night with our favourite fuzzy people…

    Let me know what you’re doing!

  16. Had my first ever mammogram last week, all was fine. Have been telling all my friends to go get one, they are no big deal!
    And I will see you at Rhinebeck!

  17. Nice…package. *giggle*

    No really, it’s nice and I love the yarn – just saying ‘nice package’ makes me giggle like a 12 year old…’cuz I’m mature like that. ;o)

    See you Saturday!
