1. No, for some reason I never have been able to get into the summer olympics. It's probably because I am not thrilled with the winter olympics--except skiing.
2. School was out here last Thursday. The kids in our neighborhood are out and visible. The dogs bark constantly because they want to go out and play with them.
3. I went to summer camp every year from 4th grade through 8th grade. I was an only child and my mom and dad thought I spent too much time alone and needed to socialize.
4. I used to display my needles on a wall-hanging system in my sewing room. Now I keep them in a bag next to my chair so I don't have to go get them. Lazy, lazy, lazy!!
5. I don't spend much time on Ravelry--only when I am looking for a pattern.
6. I don't walk outside at night but I sit on the patio a lot to knit and watch the dogs play.
7. No, I refuse to give up "the old way."
8. It's been a while since I've been in a swap. I could do that!
9. No, we have solar bug zappers all around the patio and I wear an insect repellent bracelet.
10. I am well into Christmas with three gifts completed and a scarf on the needles.

Happy Monday on Tuesday to you too!

My answers are on my blog.

Tired Teacher said...

1. I'm with Katherine on this one - I don't watch the Summer Olympics.
2. Yes, the buses left the school grounds early Friday afternoon for grades 6-12: elementary were dismissed on Thurs. or Wed.
3. No summer camp for me, as there were chores to do.
4. I display my older, straight needles, but the circulars are organized in a binder.
5. I haven't been on Ravelry for over three weeks..
6. No, I don't walk at night: too many crazy things happen at night.
7. Metric is difficult for me, but I use it sometimes.
8. I'd love to swap
9. Yes, especially West Nile. This area is hit hard in the summer because of all the irrigation. The towns spray one to two nights a week during peak times. Mosquito traps are everywhere, and the species are counted to determine high risk areas. I avoid going out when they are active, and use repellent with DEET if I do go out.
10. No, but I give gifts during the year.

Happy Tuesday, Kathy!

*Will you be watching the Summer Olympics? I hope to. Though I'm really obsessing for the Eurocup 2016
*Is School OUT yet in your neighborhood? Yes The Kid is free range this week, but we are making sure he has responsibilities and activities each day.
*Did you go to summer camp? I finally got my dream to go to sports camp when I was in Middle School (on scholarship) I wanted sleep away camp so bad but we couldn't afford it. The irony is that I have the means to send my child and he has NEVER wanted to go. A true homebody. Good thing we like him ;)
*Do you display your needles? I don't. My world is cluttered it's amazing I don't.
*Have you been on Ravelry this week? Not this week. But now I need to, thanks for the distraction Kathy, ha!
*Do you walk outside at night? Yes, but usually with a destination. Returning from the gym work, dinner.
*Do you think in metric? Only for runs as in 5k 10k 12k.
*Do you want a swap? With you and your knitting pals? Absolutely.
*Are you afraid of mosquito borne illness? I should be, but no because there is no reason. if I was traveling, possibly. Fear is easy for me to tap into ;)
*Have you knit a Christmas or Holiday gift for 2016 yet? Nope, but I have summer goals.

Araignee said...

1. Yep! Even though I will complain the whole time about the terrible NBC coverage.
2. No. We had lots of snow days to make up.

5. Of course. I check in a few times a day to see if I have any messages.

9. No, just afraid of them in general since I'm allergic and I swell like crazy.
10. No. I gave up making stuff for people unless they ask for something specific.

karen said...

who isn't on ravelry every day?? I have to see what patterns are up and coming and possibly free :)

school is still in session here and I am not a metric thinker at all.

Vera said...

*Will you be watching the Summer Olympics?
Yes! As much as I can…or until all the jabbering gets on my nerves.

*Is School OUT yet in your neighborhood?
Nope – not yet. I think in a week or two.

*Did you go to summer camp?
Once – did NOT like it.

*Do you display your needles?
No, I keep them in various cases.

*Have you been on Ravelry this week?
Yep – this morning before leaving the house for work.

*Do you walk outside at night?
Sometimes. My husband walks almost every night around 11 p.m. – I’m fast asleep by that time.

*Do you think in metric?
Nope!

*Do you want a swap?
Sure – that would be fun!!

*Are you afraid of mosquito borne illness?
No, but I’m conscious of bugs and try to avoid. I hate bug spray though and I’m sure the chemicals aren’t good for a body either.

*Have you knit a Christmas or Holiday gift for 2016 yet?
No…I need to start pronto.

*Will you be watching the Summer Olympics?
No - not really my thing

*Is School OUT yet in your neighborhood?
The universities/colleges are, but the grade high schools go right to the end of June.

*Did you go to summer camp?
Only once, with Girl Guides. I got to play with a three-month-old baby tiger, it was the best!

*Do you display your needles?
No.. they are pretty enough too, but Dave doesn't like clutter, so they are (mostly) tucked away

*Have you been on Ravelry this week?
Yep - lots!

*Do you walk outside at night?
All the time. We live in a very safe area. That doesn't mean I'm not cautious, but there generally not much need for concern around here.

*Do you think in metric?
Being Canadian and under 40, I grew up with metric, but there are still something I do in imperial - mostly because I learned them from Mom... mainly baking (I always use cups adn tsp instead of litres and millitres) and sewing/knitting... there I work in inches.

*Do you want a swap?
Im not much of a swapper, I always procrastinate going to the post office.

*Are you afraid of mosquito borne illness?
Not really, we are pretty good about keeping the populations down here and wearing spray when we know they will be bad.


*Have you knit a Christmas or Holiday gift for 2016 yet?
Nope - and I'm kinda thinking of not doing any this year. We've already decided we are only gifting the kids this year, so I'll probably stick with toys and gift cards.
