Another Quickie

October 17, 2008

Yesterday I wanted to turn on the air conditioning.  Today, I want to put on the heat. 

We’re hanging with the neighbors tonight, so this is all there is for today.

In and Out

May 18, 2008

It was one of those days when there were things that needed to be done inside, but the outside kept gently calling my name.  The gentle breezes made the morning walk perfect.  We decided to walk down to the pond.  We could here the frogs before we see the pond.  We walked along the edge and they would jump into the pond as we approached and Gus went crazy.  There was one white goose in with the Canada geese that we had never seen before.  On the way back, we stopped and talked to some of the neighbors.  One was especially talkative.  He wife recently moved out and he seemed more relaxed and happier then we have ever seen him.  When we got back, I poured myself a cup of coffee, grabbed my sock knitting and went out back.  After about an hour, I came back in, did some boring work, then I went back out again.  That’s the way the day went.  In and out and in and out and in and out.

The commentator at the local National Public Radio station is awful. He’s the comic relief between The Metropolitan Opera and Prairie Home Companion. At least there is an NPR station in this area. That’s what I keep telling myself anyway.

Back of mitten.

I’m ready to start the thumb. Maybe, I’ll get to it tonight. Last night, we went out with friends for dinner. We all had scallops with crabmeat. It was so good. We talked for a good while when we came back so I started the gloves. I can’t follow this mitten pattern and a conversation at the same time. Besides, Elvis was in my lap and Zip was in Linda’s.

Too Busy

January 27, 2008
Or too unorganized. I’m not sure which. I had to clean the bathroom. I had to finish my daughter’s sweatshirt. I had to go for a walk. I had to put Christmas decorations away. I had to do some reading. I had to get cleaned up. I had to go out to dinner with the neighbors. I had to play Dominoes. And now, I have to go to bed.
