Hello again! It’s Friday. This has been an interesting weather week here in Middle Earth. It was warm and lovely all last weekend and through Wednesday. By Wednesday evening the temperatures were dropping and by Thursday morning the temperature at Chez Knitwonpurltoo was 34F. This morning we have snow. Gotta love spring here in Middle Earth. Yet, you will not hear me whine. Nosireebob. Not me. Nuh-uh.
My plans this weekend? Dishwasher shopping and deep cleaning. Major plans. I need to suck it up. I hate the idea of spending the money and all, but I’m sick of washing my dishes by hand with absolutely no drain area. I have a sink and next to the sink (on the right) is Stinky’s seating area where she supervises me. On the left of the sink is the stove. No place for the dishes. Do you see my dilemma? Other people would move the cat butt off the countertop, but those people don’t really have a cat. Cats go wherever the holy hell they want to and if they aren’t doing it when you’re looking, I’ll guarantee they’re doing it when you aren’t. Point in fact. I have a little time in the morning before going to work. I usually sit at the dining room table and work on a sock. Then, I put the sock and all in a bowl on the dining room table covered by the pattern book (I thought) with just a the needles sticking out a bit. Well, one morning I took out the sock and started knitting and on the third needle I noticed grooves. When I checked it out a bit further, I noticed they were little bitty teeth marks. Thankfully, my needles are not ruined, but every time I complete a round, I think about the spoiled brat cat I have who wanders around my dining room table at night (the reason I use placemats every day). Now, everything is hidden before I go. I’m a slow learner.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend. Here is my soundtrack for Friday………………………………”Kitty’s Back” by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, from 1978.
Damn, this is good!
