Indiana Jones and the Towel

This is what it looked like out my window at about 8pm last night. I just love the ever-changing view out my window.

I set yesterday aside to watch the Indiana Jones movies on SciFi.

Then I noticed that the BBC in America was showing the two Doctor Who episodes, Tooth and Claw and School Reunion, and after being on the computer for a while, I watched them from my DVR recording of them.

This was followed by Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Yes, I got to watch them in chronological order for the first time, courtesy of my DVR. I don't know what's wrong with SciFi. They, of all people should know to show them in order instead of the way they were released.

Since I waited for all this to be recorded before watching (so I could fast forward through commercials), I didn't get any further on this.

But I got to see the Family Guy Star Wars episode and the Chicken whatever, also about Star Wars and Holly was right--they are VERY funny. I'm going to have to watch them about 10 more times (at least)!

During all this television, the towel was finished. I am now ready for Towel Day.

This is the whole towel, and below is a close-up.

I'm trying to decide if I should be happy with my towel and quit, or if I should try to find some navy cotton yarn and make another one. I always pictured the towel in navy blue, from the moment I heard about Towel Day. I can't decide.

I know I should be finishing up another project, but I picked up the yarn that was left from my poncho, and I'm making another one. The frugal part of me just doesn't want to let that yarn go to waste.

I will do other projects, but this is good, mindless filler knitting.

Holly and I went out on Saturday, and mostly did utilitarian errands before we had dinner. We debated about going to see Prince Caspian, but Robin called and needed/wanted her for something, so she said we'll do it next week. So, it was a very quiet weekend.

As soon as I try on the nearly finished poncho for fit, and add the closure, I'll post a photo.

I heard from John Saturday night. He said that Laura found software for the computer she gave me that she hadn't included. She's sending it to me. This may be the last bit of the software puzzle that makes it all work.

In reading news, I finished Prince Caspian this morning, and am now back to the Dresden book, Blood Rites.

I have to go. I have a busy day ahead of me. My books are in at the library and I have to go pick them up. I ordered a batch of books on self publishing. Maybe I'll be a publisher someday.

Then I have some other errands to do.

Have a happy Monday!
