Friday night Julius brought home his mid term report card. In short: His mother is proud. He did very well!
All else was basketball and knitting (same old, same old). Julius had no game but some specific workout and therefore there was no obligation for me to actually stay and watch. So I went to a nearby café and finished the wrap in all colors of the rainbow I have been working on since Christmas. I would bring it to perfection (yeah!) with an icord edging. I love it! It is so beautiful. Somehow, the merino makes it squishy and soft, with the icord holding it into place. I wish you could feel it. Unfortunately you can’t, therefore I have uploaded more pictures than I usually would.
Did you know that Angelina Jolie and I have something in common (other than looks, money, success and the handsome husband …)? Apparently, both of us need classical music (after all, that is what German newspapers reported the other day about her). For me, there is nothing like Edward Elgar’s “Salut d’amour,” Albrecht Mayer (principal oboe with the Berlin Philharmonics) playing no matter what, or most of Mozart to wake up in the morning or to help me unwind at night.
Whereas Julius loves rock music … Do I need to say more? Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, AC/DC … The older he gets the more we need rules like: no rock music during meals, certainly not (!) during breakfast. Compromises for the rest of the day: Bruce Springsteen, Deep Purple, Prince. And I wonder whether I was ever anything like that as a girl.
Other than that I finished a new pair of socks – 6ply sock yarn, bright colors, basic pattern – in one day. Saturday socks so to speak. They were confiscated the minute I wove in the last end. Not easy when someone else in your house has the same size as you do. But it won’t be for long, I guess. He is already heading for the next size.
