The one where she decides that


Thursday is the new Friday.  Hey, I figure if 50 is the new thirty and 40 is the new 20, then why can’t Thursday be the new Friday and don’t forget that navy is the new black.

I’m off tomorrow and I’m knitting and baking, I’ve worked for it all week and I deserve it.  Am I the only person that gets a happy, contented rush from those?  Something about working with my hands, following familiar routines is very soothing for me.  OK, does this mean that knitting is the new yoga?

Act II, The one where the weather


isn’t getting any better today.   Another round, worse than yesterday’s, is predicted for this afternoon and evening.  The radar is starting to get busy and I suppose I can put off grocery shopping one more day.  DD posted a video of the flooding in her neighborhood in Fayetteville on Youtube.  Here’s the link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7qHjL5AI1I.

As for knitting, I absolutely will have a WIP Wednesday post.  In fact, I’m off to a “photo shoot” at this very moment.  (yeah, right)

The one where the weather


just seems to be getting worse and worse.  Talked to DD about an hour ago and she’s been frantically moving stuff upstairs, there’s at least a foot of water outside in her neighborhood.  DSIL is home and safe, but couldn’t get to their driveway to park and had to wade through knee high water to get to the house.

About four hours later:

The weather here in Little Rock has turned really, really nasty.  We’ve had a couple of tornadoes in the central Arkansas area.  Pictures and damage reports have started coming in.  Thankfully, we haven’t lost our electricity at our house but the latest count is about 53,500 customers are without power in Pulaski county.  I’ve been sending and receiving texts all evening.  All present and accounted for.

DD checked in, rain has let up some and water is receding so that’s good news.  Jeez, these last couple of weeks have been something else weatherwise.

The one where the Easter


bunny has come and gone, the Papoose got some really great swag and I, for one, have eaten my weight in chocolate Easter eggs.  I’ll pay for that little adventure later, I’m sure.  We had a wonderful, joyous weekend, laughing and all talking at once, cruising that sugar high.  I’m blessed with family.

Here’s Susannah in her Easter frock before  church.

And after

As for knitting, excellent progress was made on both the Brittany Jumper and the Coupling socks, with the socks lacking just the ribbing up top.  The Jumper lacks about an inch and a half more skirt before starting the bodice.  Pictures sometime this week, just when, I don’t know.

I’m glad to be back in my own nest tonight.

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.  Aaron Rose

The one where the weather


in Fayetteville has turned ugly for the nth time this week.  We got here about 4:30 p.m. and the sun was out.  It’s now 8:30ish and it’s been one line of thunderstorms after another for the last couple of hours.

No picture this post.  Get one in tomorrow.

Been a rough week, glad we’re in Fayetteville with family tonight.  May have to visit Handheld tomorrow.  I feel a wool jones coming on.
