As a homeowner on a budget, my vacation days are filled with projects and jobs. I am not unusual. I am slow. I am not a handy person by nature. It takes me a great deal of time to figure things out just to do the little project. Yesterday, it took me almost two hours to hang a new blind in my mother’s bedroom. And, this didn’t even include the time out to run to the hardware store for drill bits. That, is a given. Whenever I start a small project, I can almost be guaranteed that I will need something else to complete the job. Still, you would have thought I had built a gazebo for all the happiness that window blind brought. I still have two more to hang, but am waiting for one of them to arrive.
Then, last night I went to knitting night. I’m guessing the heat made people crabby, but there was a general pissiness that is not the norm. I just tried to sit and knit on PurplePi. She is growing ever so slowly and it became obvious to me last night that she needs a bit more before the edging. I don’t want a tiny shawl when the amount of yarn is almost limitless. There is now beading, rug hooking and crocheting in my knitting group. I honestly don’t mind. I just like sitting and knitting and chatting just a bit.
So, my soundtrack for today is Lunatic Fringe by Red Rider. I don’t care for the video because it’s a might overproduced, but the song cranked up loud makes me happy.
Have a good one!
