another month bites the dust!

So... Here in So Calif it has been painfully hot... until this weekend... Sunday I awoke being (gasp) cold... to the sound of drippy drippy drippy... and at 4 a.m. I didn't have to get up until 6:30, so I pulled a sheet over me, and a blanket over my feet and went back to sleep until 6:15 when I re-awoke to the sound of drippy drippy drippy... I poked my head out the door and said... hmmmmm the sky is falling, the sky is falling, and my cats looked at me and said so what, we are hungry... feed us... Earlier this month the keyboard on the computer that I use at work died... the down arrow key for what ever reason had decided to stop functioning... fortunately there was anothe board here, so I used it for a time, but it wasn't an ergonomic board... several years ago, I was gifted with an ergonomic board by a friend that I was working with, and boy howdy did I get spoiled by it! Sunday I was able to find one at a computer swap meet for not much $$ and so my hands are having to adjust to the ergnomic board ... again!

I've been making lots of baby sockies... several friends have had or are going to have babies... and super fast and easy baby pressie... sockies!

Work... work is for the most part still great. Last Monday we had a power outage, which tripped the printer for the scale, and I had to reset the date on it... Tuesday I thought checked the date, and had to reset it - again - then we had another black out... then Wednesday, I went looking for any kind of instruction manual on the scale printer, only to find nothing... Hurray for google... I did a search, and found a site that walked me thru resetting the printer... of course I printed up the directions, and stowing them in the employee training manual, so that the next person after me doesn't have as steep a learning curve...
There are days... as is expected, and then there are ... DAYS... again as is expected! Today I had a guy come in with a hummer wanting to know what each of the wheels were supporting weight wise... so I did what is called a '4 corners' weight... and ... got tipped a dollar, and told that I was doing an excellent job...

Beautiful baby socks -- I wish I was more in the mood to knit them. Maybe next year, when the scrap yarn pile is larger than one of the Banshees :D. Or maybe I'll do a baby sock afghan...don't ask, it just occurred to me and I'll be up the rest of the night figuring out the mechanics, lol!
