I have absolutely no pictures. I spent this weekend running errands and socializing and cleaning and cutting the grass for the last time. I could have taken pics of the grass cutting endeavor, but I hate cutting the grass so it didn’t even occur to me that the colors might have been pretty on the screen. So lame. So sad.
I have been kinda knitting. OK. I really didn’t do much knitting at all until Sunday afternoon. I have to pick up about 4,000 stitches on the vest and have found that to be extremely dull. In fact, I have gotten up to go downstairs to fold clothes and grate cheese for some enchiladas I’m making. Anything, but picking up those stitches. Well, we know this vest isn’t going to knit itself, so I best just suck it up and do it. I’m now almost done with the picking up stitches part and will begin knitting with wild abandon until I screw it up and have to rip (again). Consistency is my middle name.
Did I mention to you that I’m putting together a cookbook for my church’s Board of Deacons (the mission branch of the Presbyterian denomination)? I’m enjoying it bunches and will show it to you when I’m done. No other Deacons have offered to help me, so I feel quite autonomous and powerful. I’m gonna do this proud. We’re going to sell it to raise money to help people who have fallen between the cracks in our society. There are more and more every day and I feel for them. I belong to a church that believes in social justice and that has an effect on every aspect of our mission. We are good deed-doers!!
I don’t think I have ever used this song, but I like it. I personally believe that Joni Mitchell is one of the finest wordsmiths/songwriters ever. This song is one of my favorites by her “Free Man in Paris” and it’s a 1984 live version. Terrific!!!
Have a good one!!!!!!!!!!!!
