All Time High

I couldn’t believe the number of people that looked at this blog yesterday.  And it was a variety of places other than yesterday’s crap.  Interesting.

I was going to have this nice newsy blog this afternoon.  Then I realized it was knitting group day and I wanted to look at ipod accessories beforehand.  I wanted to wear my Latvian Dances, but I couldn’t find them.  One of the cats had jumped up onto the cutting table, sending the socks into the flower pots.  How do they do these things?   I couldn’t find my water bottle or my sunglasses.  I was kind of going crazy.  When I got down to the stores, I couldn’t get any deceit answers.  Everything I was interested in was on the bottom shelf.  I guess I’ll just buy on-line.

I had a nice time at knitting group.  We’re going to do an entrelac thing next time so I’ll dig out a few things and print out a few patterns.  Afterwards, Leslie and I went out to dinner and talked for a long time, so I guess I’m a bit talked out now.  When I finally got to the computer I started looking at the blog surfer.  Bad idea.  I am amazed at what I find, like this and this.  I lost tract of time.  Here’s my own kind of cute.

Not Going Anywhere

December 31, 2008

It has been extremely windy all day.  I didn’t have much of a walk today.  Trying to fight the wind and walk at the same time is too much for my poor knees.  Now, it’s getting colder.  We used to go out with new year’s eve with the neighbors, but the main organizer turned out to be more than most of us could stand.  He always wanted to go to someplace fancy.  Then, he would treat the wait people like dirt.  It was very embarrassing.  He always had to show that he was better than you.  I don’t know why people have to be that way.  Most people do it occasionally, but with him it was all the time.  I feel sorry for his wife.

I am glad the year is over.  I said that I would blog every day and I did.  But, I feel that other things were neglected and I did not learn as much as I thought I would. So, I will be blogging less this coming year.  I want to spend my computer time doing other things.  If I stare at the screen for too long, I feel like I am frying part of my brain.  I was originally thinking about blogging on odd days, but maybe ten times a month is more realistic.

My next goal is to finsh my Latvian socks by Sunday so I can wear them to group.  That also means that I will also have to wind yarn before that for my next pair of socks.  I only have about an inch to do before decreasing for the toe.  Is there anything good on TV tonight?  Well, I wouldn’t mind having a look at Dick Clark.  I used to watch him on American Bandstand fifty(?) years ago.  Scary.
