Things I'm grooving on

I hope to finish the back of Karen's sleeveless summer shell today. I've been waiting to blog until I had it finished but these last few inches are taking a while.

So I thought I would share some things have piqued my interest.

  • Jack Johnson's CD "Sing-a-longs for the film Curious George". In particular, I've got his song "Upside Down" playing in my head. You can watch the music video if you click go to www.jackjohnsonmusic.com and then click Films and then Bonus Videos. "The three R's" song is also a favorite.

  • The book "Yarn Harlot- The Secret Life of a Knitter". Her hilarious chapters will make even non-knitters laugh. My favorite chapter (so far) is the one about the squirrel who steals the author's yarn. It made me giggle loudly. You can read more about it here

  • Battlestar Galactica. My good friend Jeff turned me on to this fabulous show. Kara Thrace and Laura Roslin are my favorite characters. This tv series is close to bumping Star Trek-Next Generation as my favorite sci/fi tv show (and that's saying something).

  • Cleaning products that make my life easier. Yes...it's weird to write about cleaning products.... well.... yeah...it's weird. Anyway.
    Tilex daily shower cleaner. This stuff is perfect for glass shower walls/doors. Just spritz it on after you shower. It creates a "sheeting action" that keeps my glass shower walls clear. And...
    Downy Wrinkle Releaser. If you forget that you have clean dry clothes in the dryer (for... I don't know... 10 hours or so!), then place your shirts or pants on the bed, lightly spray them with this stuff and smooth out the wrinkles with your hands. What can I say...Laundry is not my strong point. Stuff gets left in the dryer all the time. So this stuff is a lifesaver!

  • Craigslist.org. I just posted two ads for stuff for sale. That site is just incredible. Power to the people baby! Free commerce, Yea!

  • My new digital Nikon D50. Saved the best for last didn't I? Karen and I have been lusting for this camera for quite some time. We decided to bite the bullet and get it this past weekend. Fortunately, it has an "automatic" setting so that I can take decent pictures until I read some books describing how to take great pictures. We got it from Wolf/Ritz camera and we get 8 free photo classes to learn how to use the thing.

    You made it to the bottom of this post? WOW!
