I Tink I Can, I Tink I Can....

It's my new mantra for the past two days. I laid out the shawl to take a picture of my nicely matching halves, when I noticed a place (right in the middle of the back) where I forgot to psso. So, I set the shawl aside for a bit while I decided whether or not I could live with it (I was about 10 rows beyond the mistake). I determined that, no I could definitely not live with it, so I decided to try and just undo those 5 sts for those 10 rows and just work that section. Due to the wonderful "clinging" ability of angora yarn, this didn't work quite as well as I hoped, so for the past day and a half I've been tinking those 10 rows. I'm almost done, and my eye twitch is subsiding, but it is still very frustrating.

Also on the frustrating front: On Sunday morning I looked out at my balcony and in the plant pot I have under the bistro set, I saw a black butt sticking out with this fluffy tail waving merrily at me. Fortunately there is nothing in the pot but dirt, however I think I should be keeping my eye out for the squirrel in case he decides to plant a tree in there. He's a really cute squirrel, just annoying.

On a happy note, my hibiscus has buds again. So I think it's reviving nicely.
Pics tomorrow.

I've been keeping a close eye on the critters in my garden too... I've got a bunny that keeps hopping around, I see him every morning almost... I think he's eating my lettuce, athough I don't entirely mind because it's lettuce that reseeded itself from last year and I've got too much of it!
