Blogging When Grumpy—-Not A Good Idea

August 6, 2011

Is it the arthritis?  Is it the weather?  Is it the cataract?  Is it natural?  Well.  Yes.  Actually, it’s good to rant and rave.  It feels good to put it all into words.  It feels real good.  Just don’t publish it.  You’ll regret it later.  Enough!

I’ve been making hats.  I have several single skeins of lovely yarn.  I have had about six thousand hits on Victoria’s Cloche so it made sense to use that pattern. 


I loosely followed the slouchy tam on the other two.  I saw a hat with a cabled brim so I tried it.  I’m not certain that I like it.  It’s too hard to see for the work involved.  There’s a couple more to go, then I’m back to socks.  I’m three pair behind schedule.

I also want to thank Sweetums for being —- sweet through all my grumpiness.

I Am So Tired!

May 2, 2010

Friday, it was lunch with the girls.  We had a great time.  It was only four of us this time which is a good number in a busy restaurant.  Carol STILL hasn’t gotten a hip replacement!  We all bug her about it.  Rehab is a pain in the butt, but it’s all worth it in the end.  I want to send an enormous congrats to Suzette and her husband.  They have been non-smokers for a whole year!

Why am I so tired?  Maryland Sheep  and Wool.  During the week we had 60’s and 70’s, which is normal.  As a matter of fact, it was too chilly to sit out on the deck for any length of time.  I think it got up 90 yesterday.  Today, as long as it was overcast, it was tolerable.  But when the sun came out in full, it was unbelievable. 

Yesterday, I had a rest in the back of my van.  I had chats with several people and I always run into someone I haven’t seen in a while.  One nice lady even took my picture.

Are my toenails too orange?  It’s my second favorite color.  I toyed with walking around in the afternoon like this, but, then, I started thinking about dust and stones so I put on my white cotton Buster Brown socks.  And, yes.  You can still buy them. 

It’s a good thing I came early.  More on Sheep and Wool tomorrow(or the next day).  I haven’t decided if I’m going home tonight or tomorrow morning.  I’m really tired and I really love the big old bathtub here.

I Washed My Socks

April 26, 2009

There will be no restaurant critique this week.   We didn’t go out last night and our neighbor was too tired to on Thursday.   We will probably only go out every other week during the warmer months.

It was unusually hot today so I decided it was time for the annual washing of my socks.  A couple didn’t get washed.  I need to repair them which I hate to do so it’ll be a while.  Maybe they’ll get washed next year.  I’m not rushing into these repairs.  I deliberately hung them on the clothesline.  It seemed the perfect opportunity for a photo op.


Olive was pretty hot today.  She wanted to go out, but it was too hot for her.  She spent the day sleeping in her bowl on the dining table under the ceiling fan.  She’s still a baby.042109-001

Once the sun went down, she went out.  She’s been running in and out.  We probably won’t be able to get her in until midnight.

Thursday, I decided to go shopping in Rehoboth and Lewes.  I hadn’t been over that way for a while and I didn’t dare go over the weekend.  I rode down to the beach at Lewes.  It’s always so pretty there, but it was really windy making it hard for me to walk.  At least I remembered my camera this time. 042109-024

Lewes Cape May Ferry

Lewes Cape May Ferry

We should take the ferry over to Cape May for the day some time soon.  Well, maybe next Autumn.  
I stopped at Ginger Moon and bought this ball of yarn.  I hadn’t seen it before.  042109-025It should make a fun pair of socks.  I got some other stuff for a purse. 
I never got over to the new yarn shop at Rehoboth Beach.  I got some stuff at the Disney and did some looking,  but it was getting late.  I might go back next week if there’s a cold or rainy day.
