My Wings Are Humming

Mondays are long. I work eight hours at my day job (the Registrar's Office) and then work another three hours teaching.  I come home tired, ready to eat dinner, and veg. 

Tonight I came home and was immediately energized because when I walked in the door Mark was just putting the finishing touches on dinner.  Taco Salad, one of my favorites.  He also showed me that he finished my new swift.

It is slick and cost less than $10 which is awesome since the swift I had been eyeing is about $40 and that was a good deal.  My Knit Picks ball winder should be arriving in the mail shortly and is bound to play nicely with this yarn swift.

If all of that was not enough to have me humming in delight, Mark surprised me with a brand new netbook!  He said it is an early birthday present (my birthday is not until December).  It is an Acer Aspire One 11.6 screen and we should have wireless in about a week and then I will really get that baby humming.  This came as a particularly large surprise because we just looked at this netbook at Costco yesterday and all he could tell me was how much he thought I didn't need it.  You think he had this planned all along, or did he just realize how much I really wanted it and how much I was going to use it in all its compactness.  With wireless I can sit in my favorite chair, I can sit outside, I can pretty much be anywhere in the vicinity of our house that I want and still blog, check facebook, and do all other sorts of nonsense online that I probably don't really need to be doing.  I can't wait to get started!  I love you babe!
