I completed a jigsaw puzzle yesterday. In fact, I started it yesterday too. It was only 500 pieces but my puzzle showed up with 499. That did not make me happy. It was a brand new puzzle, fresh out of the box. Then I watched, Dancing with the Stars after dinner. I finished off my evening with a movie "Me Before You". Hated the ending of the movie! Went to bed around midnight and I was awakened sometime during dark o'thirty to the sound of thunder and rain. (No rain in the forecast either) I had both dogs in my bed shaking like the little Chihuahuas they are. Sleep after that was fleeting and I ended up finally getting up around 6.
I have taken the trash barrel to the curb, fed my dogs, fed myself, read my fellow bloggers, done the dishes and started a load of laundry. Maybe I will start another puzzle........maybe I will read a bit........maybe I will crochet a row or two on the prayer shawl. The choices are endlessly boring.
I think, I will watch another movie that I know the hubby would never want to watch and crochet. UGH!!!!! I so want to be able to pick up my knitting needles and work on my WIP's. It is killing me to look at my partially finished knitting. It breaks my heart to think it will be 4 more weeks before we will be together again.
I will go and watch Grand daughter play another basketball game this afternoon and then this evening I will be giving a tour of our church to the children in the religious education classes. So, I actually do have things to keep me occupied.
I could go to the local yarn shop and peruse their selection of non wool yarns. They know me well enough now, that when I walk through the door, they show me all the new non wool yarns that have arrived. I could also go shopping on line to yarn shops and pick out some lovely sock yarn. Seems that is all I have been knitting with lately and I am loving it. Don't get me wrong, I am am by no means low on yarn of any weight...........It is just so fun to receive packages in the mail and open them and caress the lovely softness of cotton, linen, bamboo etc. It even smells lovely!
OK, I am off of here and going to go and find something to do with myself. I think the movie and crochet will be my best bet.
Until next time..............................Happy Crafting!
lol. Last week when I went into Michaels one of the sales clerks waved at me (half a store width away). It was both really nice and tad unnerving. I know my face has become familiar and they are all a friendly bunch anyway, but this was a whole new level of cheer and familiarity. It was kind of like the time I ordered Chinese over the phone and when I said "that's all", the person on the other end asked if I wanted crab rangoon. I paused for a moment, not sure and thinking it was odd that she asked me specifically about that. When I paused she said, "Your husband normally orders it." Here I'm feeling completely anonymous when I call, and on their end when they see our phone number they are probably taking bets on what we're going to order.ReplyDelete
