From Knitting in the Shadows (now that we actually have rain - Yay!. Check out her recent vacation pictures to St. Thomas)
|What Your Black Umbrella Says About You|
You are naturally powerful and commanding. People look to you to take charge.
You are elegant and classy. You know how to always say and do the right thing.
While you stand out, you also fit it. You thrive in a variety of situations.
On a rainy day: you carry on as normal - a little bad weather isn't going to get in your way !
There's more progress on the sleeve of Mary Tudor than this picture shows but moving (the office) has kind of sapped me. 60 boxes. And the stupid elves haven't shown up to finish the job yet either. Gah.
Having an opposable thumb is not all that it's cracked up to be either. It's either arthritis or I've strained it? Who knows. I can knit, but I can't really play on the computer for long - and not having a computer at work hasn't helped much either. That's where all the lifting stuff happens.
Hezekiah officially hates the rain. She insisted on going outside on Saturday even though I told her we were moving the office and I wouldn't be home all day and it was POURING. She was drenched and mad as a wet hen by the time I got home.
So today I insisted she stay inside. When I got home she wanted outside via the garage door, the sliding glass door to the backyard and the front porch.
Can you believe it? IT WAS RAINING OUTSIDE OF ALL THREE DOORS. The horror.
This is Nerissa, my new niece. Isn't she darling?
Last week, a box came in the mail from KnitThink.
Inside the box - many many apples (and popcorn, although not nearly as edible).
I can see why people love apples now! They were crunchy! There was this wet stuff - my mother - who is from Michigan and wise and knows these things - said that it was called "juice". It was a revelation. I still have to think of something wonderful in return.
No wonder people eat an apple a day to keep the doctor away. I wonder what four a day will do?
I've been working on the beaded scarf that The Fairy Godknitter sent me and swatching for the Veronica yarn from Dizzy Blonde Studios. While sorting my UFO's I found my half done sock from Bellamoden's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress - I think I've figured out how to fix the heel turn in pattern. And now I'm wondering how she's doing - I've been so wrapped up in moving and knew that she'd come through her surgery, I haven't gotten any more updates.
I'd list my October reading list but it's on my computer at work, which is currently dead on my desk.
Tuesday, Novermber 4th - VOTE! If you don't vote - you will eat from the poisoned apple! (Not this one. This one is not poisoned. I checked. The old fashioned way)
Furthermore, if you don't vote, you are barred from either crowing or complaining about the outcome now and for the next four years. This will be ruthlessly enforced.
