I was given a very clever title idea by my brother last evening, but since we were having wine I can’t remember it. I would use the age card, but it wasn’t a factor.
I have been knitting, but am unable to show you anything because right now the majority of my knitting is for Christmas. Also, the Vittorio shawl has not been blocked due to
Hurricane Tropical Storm Left-overs Isaac. It’s been many years since we had a whatever you want to call it Gulf storm come up over us and sit. I got 2.25″ over 3 days and I think my brother and BSIL got about 3.5″. I am so relieved that the trees have been given the best watering of all. Losing a tree is like losing an old friend. Of course, now I have to cut the grass. meh.
I have also been painting. I have, it seems, a false image of my height. I believed that I could stand on a 2-step stool and paint my entire shutter, but it appears I was more optimistic than accurate. I had to go buy a step ladder, but knowing my terror of heights, I got a 4′ ladder. It’s lightweight and sturdy and I do believe if it ever dries enough outside, I will be able to complete my shutters before winter sets in. I might also be overly optimistic about that, too.
My soundtrack for today? From Austin City Limits, 1978, Merle Haggard and “The Working Man Blues”
Happy Labor Day all!!!!!!!!!!!!
