My Funny Valentine

I woke up Valentine's day and went into the kitchen to make breakfast. Almost every morning, I have a green smoothie, which is green juice (has algae, spinach, barley, all that good stuff), frozen fruit, some ice, and usually a little mango juice. I looked at the fridge, contemplating if I wanted yogurt this morning. On the fridge are those word magnets, they're just plain white magnets with black words on them. My crazy mother, sent me a set that was knitting terms. Of course my roommate immediately tried to write dirty sentences with them. Anyway, what I noticed this morning in particular was that one word had fallen on the floor. Love. I'm not sure if that's a good or bad sign, but I figure it's either really good or really bad, what do ya think?

Here is a pic of my Valentine this year...

Ok, so he's a tad young and a little messy, but a single girl can't be picky on Valentine's day. His name is Hunter and I'm visiting him in North Carolina this weekend. I've known him for about 5 of his 6 years and I swear he's only grown a foot in that time which is probably due to the fact that his mom isn't even 5 feet tall. He runs around even faster than purl, I swear!

We all went to REI today in Greensboro. I bought 4 hiking shirts for about $50. If that's not a bargain I don't know what is. We visited a yarn shop too, called This and That. It's a nice shop. They had lots of buttons (hint, hint Gina ;P ). I was very tempted to buy some Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn, but resisted the urge. I must say that I am one of those obsessive sock knitters now! I am so sad I missed out on the Socks that Rock Sock of the Month Club this year. They get sent colors that the rest of us not so lucky knitters won't get to see until 2008! I will definitely sign up next year.

By the way, I'm so close to finishing my ecowool sweater. I have to knit the collar and seam the sweater together. I'm so excited!

You should have told the owner, Kim of This and That, that Gina says Hi! I used to be her KFI rep!
