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!

Carmina Piranha

I'm not sure how the mobile app will arrange the photos. The fish is one that Squishy brought home for his parents from his mission to Brazil. Yes, that is a real piranha. No, it doesn't match my decor, notwithstanding all the fishy memorabilia Beloved left behind.

So this morning I put it in a box with some mail addressed to the kids, and a few other things, and I ran it over to their new place while I was out and about. I also dropped off another small load of stuff at Salvation Army.

Deposited the 21 cent check from Verizon and a roll of dimes into my mad money account. Not sure what I'm saving for next. Maybe the doll who will embody "joy". Maybe a really good keyboard. Maybe a dobro or a cello(!). Maybe a Book of Mormon cruise.

It took trips to both Home Depot and Lowe's, but I found new knobs for the linen closet. I could have gotten new knobs that were identical to the old ones, just shinier. But when I saw these smaller ones with the red inserts, I was smitten. I will probably pick up two more, for the vanity in the guest bathroom.

The new knobs only serve to emphasize how badly in need of refinishing both the vanity and the closet doors are. All in good time.

I also bought a Waterpik last night at Costco. Two, actually. One is a travel size and will join the travel iron in or in my carry-on bag.

All the errands but one were finished before noon. I had a couple of documents photocopied on the way home from the baptism of two of my Primary kids. And then I got a three and a half hour nap.

And that was my Saturday. Banjo practice was visual and auditory but not kinesthetic. I made a good deal of progress at following along with the tablature during the video. Brain is more than a little fried.

Those new knobs look really nice, very You. I'm pleased that you're making the small changes that make your home more You.
