Feeling rather bleak today.  Don't know why, exactly.  I'm usually fairly wrung-out on Thursdays, as my therapy appointments are late on Wednesday afternoons.  But this is more than that.  Yes, it's a gray day, but I've never minded those.  And this particular one is bringing cold weather, which I certainly don't mind.  But I'm a couple of bubbles off plumb nonetheless.

Lily and Madeleine seem to have claimed their warm spots for the weekend.

I've still only heard that four of you have received your TIS packages.  That's very disappointing, and, I guess, the reason that people don't often sign up for swaps.  A handful of you did say, though, that you liked the idea of a Traveling Scarf, so that may yet come to fruition.  It would be great to have one to donate during the holidays, but we're all going to be too busy for that, I'm sure.  After the first of the year, maybe?

Thanksgiving is two weeks from today, and, yes, I have much to be grateful for.  But there are also things that gripe me, are aggravating me, that are just not going my way.  So, every day, for the next two weeks, I'm going to give testimony to something that I'm not especially happy with.  Feel free to join in!

There's no one here who can cook me some really good collard greens.

See?  Pretty easy, huh?


  1. Your package is on its way tomorrow. :-)

  2. I thought the swap was amazing on both ends for me. I have had some issues with swap organizing in the past. SOMe folks just really over commit. Some folks only want to be on the receiving end. Most times, though, it works out. Hang in will get more swap good news soon I'll bet.

  3. My package arrived last weekend, and I mailed mine off today. It was all fun!

  4. I hear you on the collard greens... And I raise you some ham and beans. The three would go together nicely...

Not Really in My Color Wheel

10.  Red There isn't a lot of red stuff in my life.  Never has been.  I remember exactly three red tops I've had in my life, maybe a couple of skirts with red print.  My one red fashion statement has been my red cowboy boots, modeled after my Daddy's red patent leather ones with the gold toe tips.

Red just doesn't suit my coloring.  Mama could wear it.  Hannah can wear it.  It's just never been a big part of any of my color selection life.  I gravitate toward purples and blues and grays, some green.  I avoid orange at all costs.  At least red doesn't awaken that kind of loathing in me.

Guess Free Association is our best plan, then.

And you?  What does red do for you?


9 days until you can submit Knitters' Hunk and Knitters' Chick nominations!

I am late to a lot of parties.  I scarcely ever go to movies, so by the time I watch a film via streaming, or borrow a DVD from Netflix, everyone's fever has come and gone.  Since I read non-fiction almost exclusively, novels that everyone else has long since read and fawned over don't often appear on my radar.  Hence,
If memory serves, Kathy's daughter talked about this book in one of her reading posts over the last few months.  Briton read it long ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it, and it is his copy that I've borrowed and am just sailing through. What an engaging read.  Most of you have probably already read it;  did you like it this much?
