what made me smile yesterday

~ seeing blue sky instead of dreary rain:

now that's more like it! it did could over as the day went on...but there was no rain!

~ wearing these tights to work:

yea, they're summery...

...but they're totally *me*

~ transforming this:

untouched in two weeks?...

back to this:

not quite the autumn centrepiece i had planned on...

~ knowing that this yarn situation:

why i normally prefer LACE to INTARSIA (colour) knitting!!!

…is only temporary, and that once i finish the front of this sweater for a little someone, the back and sleeves will be a piece of cake.

~ seeing on wordpress stats that the top five searches for the blog are:

  1. 1970 kiki [makes perfect sense]
  2. klippan loveseat [didn’t end up buying that one at ikea]
  3. fake nail designs [yes! that was such a fun new experience]
  4. eight ball answers [my favourite baking project yet this year]
  5. scented sunscreen [hunh? i don’t even like sunscreen!]

~ dusting with this at theOTHERstore:

this swiffer duster is like a feather-duster! definitely more fun than a rag!

it was a great day!

of course, the question today…what made YOU smile yesterday??! i enjoyed chatting with many customers who had raced over the weekend – everyone’s story is unique.

    That’s a great smile list!
    Love the tights!

    The sun is actually making me smile right now…I feel like I should get outside and enjoy it!
    My iPhone is definitely making me smile…

    Imagining the look on my grandson’s face while he was riding an elephant at the Rennaisance Festival in KC on Sunday. Don’t worry his mom was holding him.

      oh, now that would have been a sight to see, eh? i hope your daughter was able to snap a few photos!

    Love the tights! I love how unique you are. And I mean “unique” as in “cool”, not as in “oh…wow…that’s…ummm…unique”. I never know what to expect from your blog! So you gave up on the puzzle…oh well, I guess it wasn’t meant to be. In the past few weeks, my favourite search terms have been “girls wearing dirty socks” and “is it ok to eat snot”.

    • 1970kikiproject  On October 18, 2011 at 12:04 pm

      thanks, stephanie! i love your way with words!
      are you for real? ok to eat snot?? that is hilarious!! and incorrect, i am sure – as in we won’t see a pic of you demonstrating. ew. 🙂

    Love those tights. The close up makes it look like they’re tattoos!
    My kitty goes through a “leapy” phase where he gallops around every day. It never fails to crack me up, and yesterday was no exception!

    • 1970kikiproject  On October 18, 2011 at 10:13 am

      yes, maybe i should look to the tights for inspiration for tat #3 when i get it!?! that WOULD be very funny to see sc kittie’s antics! i wonder what causes the hyperness?!

      • Zo  On October 18, 2011 at 9:53 pm

        I think he’s just burning off energy, but it’s funny to watch him put on a show. I do try to catch it on film (ha i mean on digital) but it never works.

    It make me smile to talk to my best friend from college during my lunch break outside in the sun in NYC : )
