It appears that my lack of focus has lost me my post, so here we go again. My lack of focus can be brought upon the broad shoulders of Mother Nature and her seriously pissy weather here in Middle Earth. I fear Mother Nature’s wrath. I do. But she has not tried me like this in a long time. We slog. We smell. Wet. Wet human. Wet dog. Wet Esau Marie from the wet dog. Mildew smells and moldy smells. It has rained and rained and rained. And it continues to rain. I think we are getting a day or two this week without rain. Nobody, but nobody is talking about the end to this. If you are in drought, come on by. We have plenty to spare. It hasn’t been raining hard enough this past week for the basement to actually leak. No. Now, it seeps. The ground is so saturated that the water is seeping into my basement. Meh.
So. Whaddya want to talk about? I’m still working on my FLS. She is in about the same place she was Monday, but just a few rows bigger. I have been in such a foul mood (I just typed fowl and that made me smile. There is hope) that I just knit a bit in the evening, go to bed and read. Whoop. But, until the weather breaks and gives us all some reason to smile again, I think that’s where I’m gonna be. In bed. Reading. I know what EZ said, but sometimes knitting isn’t the answer. I find when I feel this foul, the best thing is to avoid my knitting to avoid a huge disappointment. I can screw up my knitting on a good day. On bad days, it’s easier and faster and more damning.
Is anyone having a party or going to a party for Halloween this year? I am making dinner for the homeless that evening. I’m helping out a friend and dinner will be more fun than the breakfast I originally signed up for. Honestly? I’m looking forward to it. I bought little black and orange gift bags and will put candy in them and decorate them with stickers and serve them as dessert. Dinner will be a salad (lettuce in a bag) and home made lasagna. It’s the least I can do and it is less expensive than buying it. I also happen to believe it tastes much much better. So that’s my plan. What’s yours?
And, to leave you with something less pissy than my mood, here’s Poco and “Keep on Tryin'”. The video sucks, but I do so love the music.
Have a great Hump Day!!!!
