When I have a lot swirling around my brain, I do best in a list. So, a list:
~I have knit the collar on the Town and Country Sweater. I was half way through the neck cast off when I (luckily) ran out of yarn. So, I did what anyone would do. I tried it on. Good thing I did too. The neck was horrible. Gappy and baggy, just horrible. I now am going to rip the neck out and pick up the stitches again. For some reason, I picked up 1 for 1. This, I know now, is not the way to do it. Not for this sweater anyway. Norma enlightened me and told me to pick up 3 stitches for every 4. What Norma says, Sandy does. That is what I planned to do tonight but will do tomorrow.
~I had a grouchy day. I was mad at practically everyone, for good reason too. Few got by without my wrath.
~No knitting on a Saturday apparently makes a miserable me. This is what we could perhaps deduce.
~However, while I was NOT knitting, I was cleaning my kitchen. It had finally gotten to an embarrassing state. I always use the visitor test as my guide. You know,”If someone walked in right now, would I be mortified?” Yes? Time to clean.
~I hate to clean but I love things to be clean. A conundrum indeed.
~I have been planning the perfect 50th birthday party for Andy. Unfortunately, I left my info paper near the phone and nosy read it. He has stated that he wants no party. (it wasn’t a party per se, it was a limo bringing 10 of us to a great bowling alley in Boston and having a bowling party). See the second “thing”.
~I have put deposits down on limo and party. He Will be going bowling. Again, see number 2 above.
~Or I will be going bowling with friends. Either way.
~I made a wonderful chili for dinner, with lots of veggies!
~My mom is in the hospital with a horrible colon abscess from her diverticulitis
~Please, eat your fiber, people. Drink your metamucil. Don’t make me beg.
~Myron likes to surprise us with his pee. He leaves it in lovely places. Always a surprise. This is bothering me to no end
~I am living in a pee house.
~I will most likely smell like a smelly old pee stained cat lady soon. And I will stop being invited to all the knit gatherings. Cripes
~Hold on while I spritz a bit of my favorite perfume on me (Amazing Grace) just so I can smell something nice while I am afraid of the SCL thing (smell cat lady)
~There. That’s better
~Geez, I haven’t blogged much
~Or read blogs. What the heck is MY problem?
~I am watching Jurassic Park right now. I love the music in that movie
~My brain just went blank so I guess that’s all for now….
What about you? What’s your list?
