Rainy day somethings?

What's the opposite of the blues? What do you have when you're feeling good?
Anyway, this morning has started out in a lovely fashion. I was awakened a little too early, 5:30am, by the Bug. We got up to find his daddy and went outside, where it was actually a little crisp. We sat there with DH for a few minutes, and it started to rain! YAY! It's been going ever since. (When I got to work, the marquee on the bank out front says it's 66. We haven't seen that low temp for months and months, even at night!)
I was out of milk for my lattes, so I went to Starbucks and got a giant Pumpkin Spice latte! YUM. Now, I know lots of people hate Starbucks (why do we hate companies that succeed? I mean, it's one thing to hate big corporations that pollute and oppress, but SB is supposed to be a good corporate citizen, right?) but in a pinch they'll do. Their coffee is usually too weak for me, but with the pumpkin flavoring, I'll suffer. ;-) I must hunt some of this down myself for my regular morning lattes. Yum.
To top it all off, I had a conference call this morning, and I knitted on my sock! I must have gotten 5 rounds done at least. This may not seem like a big deal, but in the last two months I think I've probably only knitted 5 rounds total on that sock. I so want to get it done, both so I can wear them and so I can start a new one. I think next time I knit socks I will do two pairs at once, to keep myself entertained. A plain green 3x1 rib sock is not the most exciting thing out there.
I have accepted the fact that Sonnet will not be done in time for Montana next week. It should be cold enough, however, to wear my Sockapaloooza knee-highs, finally! Looking forward to walking by the river, and visiting with the family, and showing off the Bug! They haven't seen him since he was about three weeks old, so the change will be amazing.

No one else is here yet, so I think I'm going to try to get a couple rows off on my sock, too!
Does everyone have a sock-in-progress, or does it just seem that way sometimes?

It sounds like a great day! I love Starbucks Caramel Macchiatas...oh so much...I wonder if I can get all three boys out of the house 15 minutes early tomorrow to stop and get one. Starbucks needs a drive through.

Hooray for wearing Sockpal-socks! teehee =)

Oh, btw, Starbucks no longer supports rodeos (another win on the Animal Rights front) so I am no longer opposed to them. My bro actually is a district manager (he used to manage a drive through, which was so fast!)
