Saturday afternoon when I finally got home from running my numerous errands, I was in the kitchen drinking hot cocoa with coffee (it’s cold here in Middle Earth) and saw Grover chasing a squirrel (if he were smaller and more maneuverable he would catch it) and the squirrel ran up the back privacy fence. Grover ran up to the fence and hit it with his front paws with all the force of a runaway train. It broke. I was stunned, but went right out on the deck and asked in my very best “MOM” voice, “What were you thinking?”. When I realized what I had said I laughed and laughed and laughed. He just stood there and looked at me in his best “oh, you’ve lost your mind again” look. My Mom would use the phrase “What were you thinking?” whenever we did something intensely stupid (which was quite often). So, after I had my laugh, I went down to check and make sure he wasn’t hurt. He wasn’t. I realized that I’ve had him for almost 3 years now and this is the first damage he’s wrought.
Now. Knitting. I haven’t been knitting much. My shoulder has hurt me quite a bit and I can only do a pattern on the mitts I’m knitting, then it has to be put down for a while. Progress is slow and I’ve been a bit bummed by it. But, yesterday I wore enough clothing (did I mention it’s cold here?) so my shoulder wasn’t cold and it didn’t hurt. I’m not sure what that means,but if being warm keeps it from aching,then I’ll keep my shoulders warm.
And, in case you hadn’t heard, it’s cold here in Middle Earth. This is the closest I’m getting to having hostas rights now.
Have a good one!!!!!!!!!!!!
