Or a so – so knitter either! I went out to SnB last night – it was the last Thursday of the month and that is the night that we are all working on our “block a month” squares – this is the afgan I am knitting for DD#1 to take with her when she heads off to the University of Michigan in the fall. So, rather than sit home and feel sorry for my disgustingly pitiful self, I determined that I would at least go to Friends for the evening. Before long, I had my knitting needles out and found that I could knit a bit. Nothing dramatic now – just simple stockinette on some bed socks I am working up. Who could use bed socks more than the most pitiful person in West Michigan – me! Are you about ready to smack me yet? I know I sure am!! So, as long as it is not complicated – and I don’t move my arm too much. I CAN KNIT!!
This is a very good thing because I am feeling much less sorry for myself.
I want to take a moment to thank all you amazing blogging friends out there for all your words of encouragement and support. It means more than you can ever know to have read all the comments you have all left for me. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart… it feels good to have so many friends – in so many places!
On top of everything that happened this week, of course work suddenly got busy. Go figure, right? I have enlisted my darling daughter #2 to go in tomorrow to help me put the VOLUME of paper work in order and get things in over night packages to go down to processing…. thank goodness for children! It will only cost me a new pair of jeans!! A good trade off!
Tomorrow night, some friends of mine are having a “Tapa’s” party. I am not quite sure what I am bringing – but it will be a nice evening. Good friends, great conversation, music, food, and yes, a glass of wine or two. I am really looking forward to this! The last get together they had was one I attended with my husband – I had a great time, he did not. I am going to relish the fact that no one will be nagging me to leave…. ahhh, the simple things in life.
We have another storm rolling in – what is it with this? This week in the 40’s – sunshine and meltingness – now another 6 – 12 inches of snow are on their way. I am sending “Grace” away for the winter!! LOL
Have a great weekend all – you are all the best!! Oh – and I will have my package out for my Special Swap tomorrow – my wrapping helper is home!!
