Oh, the dashboard melted, but we still have the radio

HEAT WAVE in Boston! Living the no AC life is difficult on days like today, when you RUN out of the cubicle early to watch the Germany/Greece quarterfinal Euro Cup game and get stuck in over two hours of traffic of people going to Cape Cod for the weekend and end up not only being late for the game but missing it entirely

but by the time you get home being so happy to be out of the sweltering car (its only luxuries are actually the radio and heated seats) that missing the game isn't such a big deal (see, it wasn't quite as bad as...).

STILL HAVEN'T SEEN IT, so don't post comments about the results! It will be replayed on demand tomorrow. Speaking of tomorrow, I'll be leaving tomorrow evening on a two-week Internet-free real vacation. Chris and I will be going to the Netherlands for a few days, going to Liege in Belgium to watch the prologue of the Tour de France, and then heading into Germany for about a week.

I pedicured my feet for the first time in about six months in preparation. I think it works well with what I call "crossfit legs" (skinned knee is from burpees and bruises on shins were from doing this, not particularly well, today).

Let me leave you with some beauty that Karen, one of my friends and a participant in my Square Shawl workshop at Woolworks, created. That's Weaverknits Grellow! I want it!!!

The pattern is actually a recipe that I teach in the workshop, but I will be publishing it in July, so if you want one and can't take a workshop, I got you!

Talk to all of you soon! Wait until you see some of the knitting designs I've made lately!

Wow.. you get football games only on demand while we get it whether we want it or not. If I leave my window open on an evening with a game Germany vs. someone else I can tell the accurate score just by the shouting, yeah-ing, boo-ing and schei├če!-ing of the people in my block without looking at a screen for one second.
