Let’s all sing now……”it’s a weird world after all…..it’s a weird world after all….it’s a weird world after all….it’s a weird weird world….” Happy Friday one and all. Once again I have come to the rescue to make sure you all are not surprised by the end of the work week.
I have been slogging away on a Christmas gift that has turned into a nightmare for me. My original concept was brilliant in its simplicity and thought. The actual project did not turn out well. I quit. In a huff. The Pissyfairy came and sat on my stoop and wouldn’t leave. She’s still out there, but I’m not letting her in. She teases Stinky and makes her crazy. Stinky is an inside kitty. If left to her own devices, she would die. I love her so much, but she is frighteningly stupid. I have noticed that since the weather has cooled (42 on Thursday morning), she is showing her semi-annual desire to go outside. That means that when I am coming in or going out of a door, she heads out like she’s been doing this her entire life. Thankfully, she’s gotten much older, too, so all I have to do is catch her with my foot and lift her back into the house. I just read this paragraph and realized how sad my life is that I am telling you about this. le sigh.
Anyway, back to the gift (we started there, remember?). Well, now it’s turned into something even simpler than before. I would lament my creative shortcomings, but I think this is just a case of being anal about the way it looks. I’ll post more as it progresses, but since the recipient reads the blog, I will continue to be vague until Christmas.
I have also decided that I need a sweater. I really do need a sweater. I get colder now. The circulation isn’t quite as efficient as it once was and the house is kept quite a bit cooler than it used to be. So, I’m thinking it should be a cardigan, but I can’t decide which one. I love Bonne’s Chic Knit designs, but haven’t narrowed down the search at all. I bought Anne Hanson’s “Highlander” a couple of years ago, but have absolutely no yarn whatsoever on hand to knit it. We’ll just keep checking patterns for now. I’m in perusing mode.
Here is a picture from FB that my dear friend, Sharon, took during choir practice a couple of weeks ago. It’s the “boy”, our Choir Dog, Grover. I love this picture!!
To send you on your way, here’s some fabulous Rolling Stones with “The Last Time”. Have a great weekend!!!!!!
