About Me

My photo
Five years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

Friday, Blessed Friday!

Where did this week go? Oh yeah, it was largely spent on the road again. [Resisting the temptation to link to Willie Nelson].

LittleBit’s final concert was excellent, and about an hour too long for these knees in those seats. I will never again have to sit in fetal position for a choir performance. The voices, I will miss. The aches that come from insufficient legroom, not at all. Lark will be attending a newer, richer high school this fall. Their auditorium, I like.

I won the flatware storage chest on eBay. Also some other stuff. I’ve been outbid on yet another pair of clogs, but that’s OK; not sure that I really needed a third pair of red shoes.

Did I just say that? Somebody hand me some chocolate, stat!

I do need to sluice off and find something to wear and hit the road. I’m torn between driving in and riding the train. My knees are quite tender this morning; on the other hand, it is payday, and I'm not sure that I want to ride the train to and from work and then cross town again for game night with the singles. I am mostly going because the Good Brother will have more boxes for me.

My scanner is on the fritz at work. I spent a good chunk of yesterday trying to look busy.

We have early dismissal today; I’ll be off at four. I really, really wish that I could just stay home and snooze...

The knitting behaved itself yesterday. I am nearly done with round 4 on the Flared Lace Smoke Ring. It’s going more quickly, now that I’m using circs again. Starting it out on DP’s was absolutely the way to go, at least for this knitter.

And I cannot praise too highly my KnitPicks Harmony circ.

On the road again? Just can’t wait to be on the road again! Not.

We will really be on the road again this afternoon but with anyluck I can get him to do most of the driving. Another plus to that is that if he speeds and gets a ticket it is his fault and not mine.

I am really impressed that you left your knitting at home for the concert last night. Thanks again for picking me up *twice* last week for choir concerts. I guess you didn't have enough snarkyness left in you to comment on the environmental animal piece we heard last night. *snickers*

I will save my snarky comments for later this weekend. That environmental animal piece. And the lecture on global warming. I must be more tired than I'd thought...
