My husband worked from home on Thursday so it was a day of Star Trek: Deep Space 9 and not much else. Which was okay, really. :)

My husband had Vestry so he wasn’t around for dinner. I spent the evening alone as well as the day and it was quite lovely. Got some writing done, got some knitting done, did a little bit of housework, etc. It was really nice. We stayed up too late as we watched an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space 9 once he got home.

It does sound really nice, and I could use a day like that! Things have been a little too exciting around here lately.

We stayed home on Sunday as my husband was really tired and stayed up really late Saturday night. It was a nice relaxing day. I finished casting on for the christening gown and got nearly three full rows knitted (including accidentally pulling six cast-on stitches off the needle halfway through the first row, but I was able to rescue them). :)

How exciting about that gown. It will become a heirloom for sure!

Saturday I went to the movie theatre with my mom and her friend. We watched The Merry Widow (live satellite broadcast of the Met). Really fun operetta! After the show we went to the mall and I got two sleepers for the baby (10lbs size, hope they fit!) at Sears, then a nursing top at Motherhood Maternity. We went to Shoppers Drugmart and I got some spray conditioner since I’m almost out (I use LiveClean brand, Argan oil). Then I stopped at Addition-Elle on the way out of the mall and got a packet of bra extenders.

That was too much walking. I got home and was just exhausted. I made dinner and we ate and watched Star Trek: Deep Space 9 until late.

Janna, I’m really enjoying your preparation for Baby! And jealous of the operetta, what fun to see with Mom. Best to get Baby into those things early, don’t they say???

Sounds like a wonderful day indeed. Merry Widow is such a fun opera – I was in the chorus once and we had quite a good time.

:) karalianne

I never really liked opera until we started going to these broadcasts. Probably because I was never a voice major and sometimes I have difficulty with the women’s voices (I find vibrato irritating sometimes and depending on the timbre of the voice it can hurt my ears). I love musicals though, and have been in the pit orchestra for a fair number!

karalianne, in the Orange Bracket, played Friday January, 16th for 134 points, following 100% of her 7 rules. She didn't lose any life points and therefore got 1 piece of fruit for the hard work. Her public review of the day was…

Friday was pretty good. God a bit of stuff done around the house and got some writing done. Also got my BellyFit (http://makemybellyfit.com/) attached to my jacket, finally! The zipper on my jacket was the wrong kind so I had to order a “DIY Adapter” and sew it in. But now my winter jacket will fit me for the rest of the winter! I have another adapter to put on my duffle coat, which I will probably do next week just in case. It made more sense to me to get this device (which I can also use to keep baby warm if I’m carrying baby outside in winter for an extended period of time) than to buy a whole new winter coat when I may not be pregnant in the winter again.

Ha! That BellyFit is so cute!
I’ve never seen or noticed those. Great idea.
Makes a lot more sense than buying a whole new coat.

Yeah, I found out about them back in the fall and ordered mine in December. Came just before Christmas, which was good because the last couple of weeks my jacket has been getting tighter! Of course, I love that they’re a totally Canadian product. :)

That’s a great product, all right! Saves a lot of headaches.

Oh seriously! I need something like that, though for a completely different reason. I wear a heavy walking belt (not heavy in weight, but bulky) under my coat to walk the dogs. It has an additional belt on the outside which is elasticated, connects via a caribinier to two stretchy leads via rings and, on the other end, are two big dogs. I could wear the whole thing on the outside of the jacket (and have tried) but then I can’t get my hands in my pockets to retrieve poo bags, my phone, etc. Usually I just wear two fleeces and a silk underliner but when it get cold, it gets too cold for that.

When it’s really cold, I get cold because I can’t zip my coats up all the way. It’s like I’d just love to have two zippers: one that zipped below the leads and one above. That’s not gonna happen, but something like your belly thing might. Thanks — I’m going to check this out and see if I could adapt it. Probably not worth it, but now you’ve got me thinking.

Thursday was a pretty good day. I didn’t bother getting dressed and spent the day in my pyjamas but I still got stuff done. :) And I finished my fugue! I need to copy it into a better format, but it’s done and I like how it sounds (mostly; edits will be for fixing some of the problem chords).

Congratulations on finishing your fugue. Not an easy task – I remember having to write at least one in counterpoint class while in college. Never again.

I am lifetime fugue-less, unless you count moods, or keyboarded thrashings. But wow to you and HoppingFran, Janna. That’s great!

In my counterpoint class the closest we got to a fugue was a three-part invention. But a fugue is like a three-part invention, just an extra voice to think about.

Wednesday I got a lot done! Dishes, laundry, tidying in the kitchen, casting on for the baby’s christening gown (well, I started that at least), writing… I felt really productive by the end of the day. :)

The pattern is this one: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/us/pattern.php?id=378&lang=us I’m not doing the jumpsuit, just the overgown and hopefully the bonnet. We’ll see how it goes. Have to cast on 412 stitches to start with and I decided to use a cable cast-on since it will look nice and won’t be too tight. (I didn’t want to use long-tail for that many stitches, I’d have to do it fifty times before it came out right.) Not done casting on yet, but hopefully by the end of today (Friday)!

Oh my goodness, that little gown is just TOO adorable!

Will you weave in a ribbon, too?

:) karalianne
about 1 month ago

That’s the plan. Probably green, regardless of whether baby is a boy or a girl. Because I love green and then if we have another baby it won’t matter if it’s the same sex or not. :)

karalianne needs fruit, barely.

Heart.half.16 6 · 3,398 pts

I lost 2 life points because of the following things…
  • Didn't read for half an hour
  • Didn't go to bed on time

Well, wouldja look at that… 0 life points! MaryAnn, do your worst! ;)

I suppose I could have fudged on the late bedtime last night since I was up late because of work (which was last-minute on THEIR end, not mine), but anyway.
