This post won't be very exciting because I still can't show off what I've been spinning. I had hoped to finish the swap gift this weekend, but I started having water drip from the vent in my living room Saturday night. When I called the builder's emergency line they told me to turn off the A/C and keep it off until they could come fix it on Monday (I was told that A/C was a luxury, and they would not send someone out on the weekend...grr). Normally, that wouldn't be a problem, but Colorado is experiencing its worst heat wave since 1901. 16 straight days of 90+ degree heat with many more to come. My house got hot and the thought of sitting in a chair with a lap full of wool didn't sound very appealing. I did manage to finish the first bobbin, and start the second. If I can find 1.5 hours to spin each night this week, I should be able to finish by the weekend. I can't wait to be able to show it off. It is really pretty.
I also managed to finish the first toe up handspun sock and cast on for the second one before the heat wave set in at my house. I love these socks.
I managed to get some biking in this weekend. I wanted to go up to Boulder to pick up something for the swap gift, so Gina and I met early for a 25 mile ride around town. It was a beautiful morning and a great ride. Then, to celebrate the end of the Tour de France and the success of the Garmin-Chipotle team, we had burritos at Chipotle. Yum! It was a fantastic way to spend a Saturday morning.
Fortunately, the A/C saga came to an end this morning. I called my builder's customer service person first thing this morning. She was confident she knew exactly what was wrong. I met her at my house at 11:30, she walked in the door with a hammer and went upstairs to the closet with the A/C, I heard a pop, then water draining, and about a minute after she arrived she came back downstairs. They had forgotten to take a cap off of the drain when they installed the A/C. I wish I had known it was so easy to fix. I'm sure if someone had walked me through it over the phone I could have fixed it myself and saved myself and the kitties a day of suffering in the heat.
I think this is my favorite picture of Purl ever.
She's just so photogenic.
