Growing

Daughter called from work this afternoon, asking if I could pick her up and take her home.  She's been battling bronchitis for a couple of days, and today it won.  An employee with a hacking cough isn't the best thing for a restaurant.

I brought her by here first, to stock her up on medicine and teas.  And even though she said she didn't really feel all that bad, I wanted to just plant her on the couch, get her pillow and covers, pile all her stuff up on the coffee table, give her the TV remote, and take care of her like I used to.  I didn't say any of that to her, of course, but that was the deal.  They're always your babies.


Trying to increase stock in the etsy store before the holidays, so, naturally, I'm only in the mood to make myself a pair of socks.  Out of nowhere, that mood.  Here's the yarn:
Universal Yarn's Naked Sock.  It's got a little stretch to it, which I like.  And the colors are much richer and more jewel-like than the thumbnail shows.  The socks are going to be plain, plain, plain.  I might be in the mood for socks, but I'm not in the mood to follow a fancy pattern.

I'm getting word from a few of you that you've sent your TIS Swap packages already.  The deadline is two weeks from today.  I'm anxious to see what everyone gets!

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.

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?

For Those About to Nominate. . .

NOMINATIONS ARE CLOSED.

The names of your three Knitters' Hunk and three Knitters' Chick in the comments section, if you please.  You have until 6 PM Eastern Saturday night to submit and/or change your nominees.
As promised, here are mine*: Chris Evans  Sam Neill George Strait Drew Barrymore Rashida Jones Tea Leoni
