Everybody wake up! It’s Friday here. It’s Friday all kinds of places, but here it is most definitely FRIDAY! Oh, and Happy Friday to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After a full day of rain on Thursday, we are now in a full-blown SICK OF RAIN mode. There might be a very technical term, but my term is quite descriptive, thankyou.
Mistress Esau Marie has finally decided that she should bleet like a goat to get my attention. It works. And, it’s truly annoying. I used to think she sounded like a lamb, but now, I’m pretty sure she sounds like a baby goat. You might think it’s adorable, but imagine it at 3:00 a.m. Disconcerting. Yes. Annoying. Yes. Getting used to it. Oh, yes. Still, she is adorable, isn’t she? Little Miss StinkyMcFartbutt. My baby. She now sports a perennial glob of dog slobber on her back. It would be endearing if she wasn’t such a brat. And it didn’t smell bad.
Now, my knitting. Yes, I have been knitting a bit. Mostly Christmas stuff. I am annoyed at the Cosmo cardi (it’s my fault, really, but I’m blaming ” it”) so I knit a swatch. Seriously, folk. I did. And, it was to gauge!!!!!!!!!!!! After washing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I figure now, nothing will work with this next sweater. Its’ Low-Tide Ripples. I have light blue yarn, not variegated like the picture shows. The yarn used in the model at Twist Collective was a bit pricey for me at this time, so I went with sale yarn at WEBS. I haven’t cast on yet, because I’m still reeling from the swatch experience. Who woulda thought?
My job situation is a bit less precarious today. Last week, dicey. This week it’s ok. That is construction. Within a week we have gotten enough work to see us through the end of this year. I should be used to it by now, but I’m not. Really. I don’t think we’ve ever been this close to the edge before. Weird, weird, weird.
The weekend is upon us and I expect you all to have a good one. Appreciate what we all have. I know I do. And, every day I feel a bit more grateful for my gifts and blessings. Corny, maybe, but I really do feel this way. Have a wonderful weekend and to send you on your weekend way, here’s my soundtrack for today…………..The Kinks and “Well-Respected Man”
Have a good one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
