I just made my final payment on Jessica and have notified the manufacturer. I’ve heard that they are quick and efficient on shipping [unlike another manufacturer I could mention]. There will probably be an on shipping email waiting for me when I get home tonight.
Had a bit of confused excitement at work yesterday, when the receptionist called to tell me I had a “big box” up front. I thought, “Why would they ship Jessica before I finished paying her off? That doesn’t make sense!” It was my Christmas present from the company: a portable air compressor to keep in Lorelai’s trunk. Trainman is so proud of me! I suspect that 1BDH will be, too, when Firstborn tells him. [Of course, I still have to learn how to use it, but details, details.]
I also finished the first braided strip for my sister’s cowl and am about 10% done with the second.
Driving in today, because I am probably heading to the doll meet after work and then to the dance. Not much news, otherwise; I am posting this tidbit now, so that I may un-pause McAfee and let it finish scanning.
- 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!
