Just Random Words

Riley enjoys some sunlight after last night's storm,

which Finn Corgi-slept through:

Fortunately, the worst of it was over by the time I had to go to Briton's and give Buddy his insulin.  Yep, good ol' Buddy Cat has diabetes, and his diet has to be carefully regulated, and he needs insulin injections twice a day.  Briton wasn't able to do it last night because rehearsals began for his next play, Moonstone, in which he is the lead, Franklin Blake.  I have to go back tonight and tomorrow night, but it's for Buddy, and it's a chance to see Briton act again.

Speaking of actors and parts, there is a Hugh Laurie (David Nix in Tomorrowland) action figure:
The card says "Fully poseable."

So. . .

Very long, sad days around here lately.  I had to cancel today's therapy session because I couldn't afford it.  The first of next month can't come soon enough.

    I ve been wondering how you are managing. Many prayers for you today.
    Our sun is out and that is so welcome. We are expecting storms on and off today and I love them.
    We were going to ride down the Lakeshore, but I'm glad we changed our minds. The showers are intense though spotty.
    I was UP last night and changed beds. Fezzik is starting to stay with the other cats at night, but I got up to go to the bathroom and the little guy was crying for company.
    So I slept in Al's bed awhile. >Not a great sleep but hey! I'm retired who cares?
    Wishing you some peace today. Lots of love

Cold Shoulders

There were 589 stitches!  They were the beginning of this: It's the Superior Waves Shawl from Willow Yarns.  This is one of the kits Kathy was asking about the other day.
Speaking of which, here are this week's questions: Sure sign of Springs: bugs.  Has anything bitten you yet? No, though the carpenter bees are back flying around the bench on the front porch. Do you knit for practice?  I don't mean for gauge;  for a stitch pattern? If I have, I don't remember. Have you tried One Touch Latte for your coffee? Not a coffee drinker. Have you seen or tried Persi laundry detergent? I'd never heard of it 'til now. When was the last time you wore one of your own handknits? Over the weekend --- some socks made from Noro.
If the waves shawl weren't keeping me busy enough, I'm also working on 28's Cousin 53.  I'm making it out of yarn that will turn purple when I wear it in the sun. What will they think of next?


Yesterday would have been my mother's 88th birthday.  I don't say that looking for sympathy --- it's just that the arithmetic surprised me.  Then I realized that next year, my husband would have been 70.  That is hard to get my mind around.
The shades-of-blue feather and fan shawl (the 589-stitcher) had to go into the "Maybe Another Day" file.  Somewhere along the way, I lost the pattern stitch and couldn't fix it without frogging way, way back.  It's irritated me to no end, but there really wasn't anything else to do.
Something occurred to me the other day.  If this is already being done, I didn't know, so I'm not trying to steal anyone's thunder.  You know those cake/cocoa/cookie mixes in a jar? Why couldn't that be done with yarn "cakes"?  


Hooray;  baby giraffe has arrived! Next to his parents, he looks almost like a toy, but when you put him next to anything else, you realize his size.  He's already taller than me: 5'9".
There's a naming contest for him.  I submitted "Reveille," as his arrival trumpeted us all awake yesterday.  That came to me as I was tumbling names around in my head.  His sire's name is Oliver, which, backward --- revilo --- brought Reveille to mind.
Babies are also front and center knitting-wise.  Two people in my orbit are expecting --- one having a boy, the other a girl.  I'm going with basics just now --- burp cloths, wash cloths, etc.  There's a little time yet in both pregnancies, so there's time to decide on the fancier things.  This is my first knitwear model, now waiting to be a big brother.  Time does fly.
