High High Tide

December 10, 2009

It rained all night.  The geese love it.  They can stand on the bulkhead and still be in the water.  Everything is sodden.  I didn’t get much of a walk because of it.  The weather was mild so Doug put out the Christmas lights on the deck.  I had been out shopping this afternoon and they were so pretty when I came over the bridge.  Of course, I forgot to stop at the bank so I have to run out again tomorrow.   It’s supposed to be a lot colder.

I have the kimono blocked.  Maybe tomorrow I can start putting it together.  I found some snaps and buttons.  Wal-Mart doesn’t have much at all anymore.  They only had one kind of snaps and they were black.  At least I have plenty of buttons.  In the meantime, I’ve started Heritage Booties with the same yarn.  I thought about making a hat to go with the kimono, but I really liked the booties.

I don’t understand why anyone would send an “Edible Arrangements”.  You have to eat that stuff right away.  You don’t know how long they were sitting around either.  You know, I don’t think I could eat it.  I’d probably sit it out back and let the birds eat.

Sorry

I still got nada.

Well, I’m Bummed

December 4, 2009

Is that a word?  Oh, who cares.  It suits.  I went to the urologist this morning.  While I was away, they called to change my appointment to AN HOUR earlier so I wasn’t happy anyway.  The doctor probably had plans for the weekend.  After a forty minute drive and having to wait, (at least I had my knitting), I was told that surgery wouldn’t help.  He could have done that on the phone.  He talked about physical theory, but only a few places did it so another forty minute drive each way.  He was pushing to try something that involved me coming every week (for the rest of my life?), but most insurance companies don’t cover it.  It seems it only has a less than fifty percent success rate.  Why bother.   And I’m not taking those stupid pills either.

Happy thoughts!  Happy thoughts!

So I went and got a haircut.  It looks good.  It’s only down to my chin.  It was entirely too long.  Long is fine in the summer when it’s hot and I can wear it up.  But when it’s cold and takes forever to dry, (I don’t have time for a blow dryer) it’s has to come off.  If I weren’t so ugly, I’d take my picture.  It looks that good.

I’ve started te first sleeve on the baby kimono.  I just noticed that you can see the increases after the seed stitch cuff.  Bummer.  What did I do?  I’m not going to worry about it.  The mother will never notice.  It is so cute!  Don’t you think?

I like the way it crosses over in the front, but I am not looking forward to sewing on the snaps.  I’ll have to think about it.  I need to take a better picture.  You can’t see the colors here—— lime, blue, pink, aqua and cream. 

Miss Linda just called.  She wants to go to Pizza King for hot sandwiches.  It sounds like comfort food to me.  I can handle that.

Glad to be Home

For the third time, it rained all the way home.  Everyone is still alive.  But, what I would like to know is, how can one man get so many dishes dirty in just two days?  Then he says he ate right before I got in and doesn’t want supper.  So I’m sitting at the computer around 5:30 and he asks what’s for dinner.  And he wonders why I’m always threatening to beat him to death.  Now I’m not sure I’m glad to be home.  If I can get up off my dead ass, I’ll take baby sweater pictures tomorrow.

End of November

OK.  I have blogged everyday this month.  Now, I am going to put some softener inthe wash and get a cup of juice.
