I woke up with intentions of reading and knitting and relaxing today. Instead, I called contractors and painters and looked at bids and had no fun at all. Soon I will be in the midst of an unclad previously stucco home because we have water intrusion issues and a house that was not built to code. I cringe when I think of losing the peace and quiet of my house to construction.
Mom is having surgery next Monday (the 21st of August). A lumbar laminectomy and she lives by herself, so she's coming to stay with us until she's ready to go home. Must be my house because we have a first floor master bedroom. I wouldn't have it any other way, but I stress myself. I need the needles to calm myself (ha!), I sound like an addict.
Methusalah cat and dopey lab wanted to introduce themselves. They are sad because they currently have nothing to model for you - I will be knitting some scarves soon so they will return to prove their divahood.
Here is methusalah cat - she is 18 years old - I think she carries her age well:
And this is Dopey Lab - he is actually quite wonderful, for a dog.
Did I mention that Puck got a new bike for his birthday? Here is his way of modeling:
I have a few skeins of yarn leftover from my Clapotis down below, if anyone is interested in them, please e-mail me. Three skeins Noblesse Delave 109 yards each 50 gram skein. 18 st/4 inches on a 5.5 needle:
Make me an offer!
