Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Sock voting is now over

Sock voting ending last night at midnight. So I am patiently waiting to hear the results.

To catch you up with what's been happening this past week:

I had a big scare on Tuesday when I heard a LOUD bang and the electricity went out. A bird had landed (or flown into) the powerlines outside and blew the transformer. The electric company was very efficient and had it fixed within 45 minutes! I was impressed. At the time the electricity went out, I was busy making scones. Good thing I hadn't mixed all the ingredients and had them in the oven!!!

I finished listening to the cds of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azcaban by J K Rowling.
I finished a square for the Friendship Blanket.
I finished one and almost done on the other of a pair of fingerless mitts.
I finished reading The Colorado Kid by Stephen King.
I started reading Blackwork by Monica Ferris.
I played numerous games of spider solitaire and pyramid solitaire on the computer.Oh and some Sponge Bob game also. (trying to earn enough coins to move to the gold level).
Watched a lot of baseball, GO Rangers!! In first place by 9 games! Woohoo!!

So I have kept busy for the week when you add in cooking and cleaning. I'll post some pictures later. And I'll be sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear the results of the Sock Contest.

:whispers: I did start a new sock
and no, it is not in the Solid Sock color of the month, yellow

I hate when birds do that stuff! So glad there wasn't a fire. Once in a while birds smack themselves into my windows and it scares the crap out of me.

And what is that "cleaning" thing you mentioned? Is it fun? Shall I try it?

Almost forgot--good luck with the socks!

Hi! What a Wonderful Week! Wow! I'm always amazed at how some weeks I finish more of what I planned and then other weeks, not so much...

I can hardly wait to hear about the voting!! It's been a long, but productive, week over here. I'm soooo looking forward to seeing you next week, and I missed seeing you all on Wed!

Best wishes on the Vote!!

Those transformers are LOUD when they go! I've heard them before, too.
Looks like you had a productive week. Good luck with the voting. Hope you win!
