Finally almost done!

Well, I started my "secret project" in the time I took off before starting this job, that was in November!!!! I started "secret project" in November....and ...well...still not done...but...I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO close!!!! so close so close!
I dare say I am in the "finishing" stage. I want this thing to be done soooooooo bad. Am I getting the point across that I'm ready to be done with this secret...I think it's nearly killed me!
There is a picture posted of it from a little while ago...while it was still less finished....I realized after I posted the pic, that said secret project could clearly be seen in said pic, but alas, I did not remove it, I thought, well, if someone who secret project is for is clever enough to read my blog, AND clever enough to notice secret project in the background and clever enough to know that it's for her, then she's a detective baby genious, and we should send her to super smart person school right now...cuz she's 3 freakin months old! Ha! I'm tired, and I've taken migraine meds, forgive my looniness.

Looky what I got!

Yeppers, my wool arrived in the mail the other day from Elann. It's the peruvian highland wool, in oxford grey heather. It's for the cardigan that I want to make from Knitting Pure & Simple (cardigan #241). I'm never sure about wool, it can be soooo soft...or soooo scratchy. I don't really know enough about wool to tell by the name either, but I thought I'd give this stuff a shot. The colour is exactly what I was looking for, and it feels really quite soft to the touch. I can't wait to see how it feels once knit up. Although if this is anything like the last sweater I made it might be a year or two before I find out....hope not!
Here's a lovely close up. Notice that I'm not showing anything on needles...yup...that's because I don't have any....I soooo should have just bought them from elann at the same time...but I didn't...and now I have to go in search of needles at the local places tomorrow if I get time....doh! ....I really just want to rip it out of the box and start knitting.

Sciency talk now:
And hey! Guess what! My PCR worked! Yeppers, my gels are gelly gelly good! But, I've got a new system, which doesn't use ethidium bromide, which I love...because who really wants to work with carcinogens when you don't need to? Not me! But anyways, I've got to find a filter that will work for imaging my gels with this new way to document my fabulous PCR's just for genotyping...but still, I want pictures!

Not much to say today

.....sooooo how about I post a little picture of our visitor!
This little guy showed up in our front tree on day, (not exactly little), my camera tells me it was the 27th of Dec. man, so long ago.
He kept lifting one leg up and tucking it into his body like he was cold, then switching...I felt like offering him some hot chocolate, but I think he preferred squirrel. Never actually saw him get one, but boy did those squirrels look nervous....I can only hope that he got one when I wasn't looking, poor guy clearly needed some protein, and I need a few less squirrels to dig up my flower pot!

Old profile....too outdated

On April 12, 2006 Harold & Debbie were married in Cayo Coco Cuba. Hopefully Debbie will be able to figure out how to post some wedding photos on here....and her friends and family will be able to view them....if you're reading might have worked :|

Well, I think it's time I update my profile, or perhaps I'll wait until after April 12th, which will be our anniversary (1 whole year! wooo hooo, althought we've only been able to really live together since September when I moved back to london.....) Anyways, I'll have to find a new profile picture...and think of something clever or interesting to say...hmmmm this leads me to realize how boring I can be....

I'm back!...sort of

I'm blogging, right! I forgot! haha..well sort of ...I kept thinking of this but life has been soooo darned busy that I just haven't taken the time to come back....

I think I will try to get back into it though, because it's kindof fun. Too bad everyone who was checking it out (because I told them to..haha) has quit because I've been away so long.

Hmmm well, what's happened. Well, since quitting that pesky Masters project, and walking away from my
$20,000 scholarship (that still sounds crazy to me, especially since I'd wanted to work on MS for soooooooooo long, and I finally was, but I guess long distance relationships just aren't something that I'm tough enough for, and I think I'd better keep my marriage as my first priority :-D, well, second, God is first, husband is second, kids are third,,,,I get off scot free on that one for about 5 more years (no babies, 5 years!). Now I have a FABULOUS job, (first I had a really really really crappy one, then I got this one, and it couldn't be better!!!!) Life is GOOD!

Soooooo, that wacko lookin picture is of me and Nautie (fabulous pattern from that I made for baby and gave to her for Christmas (do most babies get lot's of presents before they're even born???) I think it's probably my favourite thing, because it's so darned cute with those tentacles all curling, I'm sure in a few months they'll be covered in drool, and it will be FABULOUS!

Me with the big purple bag looking oh so photogenic (ummmm, ok maybe not). That's my Jordana Paige knitting bag, that I wanted soooo bad for soooooo long, I think I started drooling over it nearly a year ago, and my sweet sweet Harold had to jump through hoops apparently to get it for me for Christmas. I don't know what all the problems were, but, apparently there was a lot of stress involved, and I think it ended up costing somewhere around $200 by the time he finally got it to me....oops...I really didn't know it would be so much trouble or seriously I wouldn't have really is fabulous though!

And then there is me (me again, hmmmm I'm sensing a slight self absorption theme here :-), oh well, it's my blog, you can be self absorbed on your own blog :-P, holding new baby Sienna woo hooo (no woo hoo is not her middle name), I can't for the life of me figure out how to flip the picture so that it is upright....I think I need blogger lessons, because you would not believe how many times I accidentally delete my pictures when I'm trying to move them around in a post...I CANNOT get the formatting of this thing figured is a MAJOR irritation...and not very Debbie friendly, so...if my pages look messy, I blame the system...or my incompetance...whichever)
Sooooo, Sienna was born on January 8th, 2007, and she is sooo beautiful!

And now a lovely picture of my smashing husband Harold strutting his hockey stuff out on the pond, I only wish that the ice was still there, it was great this year, we had so much fun. I wish we always had ice like that, I would have fabulous legs! but probably a very bruised rear end :-)

Oh ya, I have brown hair now, sort of red brown, I have no picture yet, because I'm the picture taking maniac I rarely have them of me, I'm too busy blinding everyone, especially Sienna, with the flash of my digital camera. So, no brown hair pictures, but, now that I see the Christmas pics, I think maybe I liked my hair better then, hmmmmmm but I've heard that a lot of people like the brown on me...oh, why can't hair just look good and be done, I always hate my hair, and it so darned expensive to go ANYWHERE and get your hair done anymore! Well, that's my hair rant....haha...see I AM a crazy person.
