“Your hair may be brushed, but your mind’s untidy,
You’ve had about seven hours’ sleep since Friday,
No wonder you feel that lost sensation;
You’re sunk from a riot of relaxation.”
Ogden Nash (1902–1971), U.S. poet. We’ll All Feel Better By Wednesday, Versus (1949).
Amen. HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!!!! And, thank you to Bartleby.com for the quote. I love the name of the poem. I vaguely remember those days.
It is still February and the days are still dark, but when the pup and I go out at 5:30 a.m. the sky is starting to lighten just a bit. What I love about this is that I can watch the days lengthen from the start to the finish. Then, on March 8th (thank you again, Margene!) we all lose an hour of sleep and I walk the dog in the pitch black darkness of pre-dawn. BUT! I can go outside after dinner and not stand in the darkness. It just takes a bit of adjustment, ya know? In fact, Spring is harder on me than the Fall change. But, I’ll make it;-)
Now. Knitting. Right. I’m still working on Frannie’s gift. It’s moving along, but I haven’t had much time to work on it. Last night I did the vacuuming and stuff so I didn’t have much time to knit and none to spin. I am determined to go back to my spinning this weekend. Adamant! Determined! Single-minded! End of discussion!
It’s fuzzy because I took it through the window. Isn’t he a pretty bird? I feed them because I get such great joy from them. And, Mom adores them. It’s been a tough winter because usually the cardinals will just ignore millet and go for the good stuff, but this year, pretty much anything is good.
So, to get you off on a festive note. It’s Mardi Gras weekend and we all need to dance on Friday!! Here are Sly and the Family Stone and “Dance to the Music” (all you squares get out!)
Have a wonderful weekend!!!!!!!!!!
