Another Saturday Sky
...just 'cause I can! The camera has healed itself. Finally the batteries ran down, and the battery door would open. I was all ready to go to Staples', camera in hand, to see what I needed to do next. But first, I put in fresh batteries; and then, like I've done a bazillion times this week, pushed the ON button. And it worked! First the washer, and now the camera.
The only thing I can figure is that Lee Ann must be feeling a lot better. Hooray for that. Last week Stephanie was posting that all the irritating, confounding things that were happpening to her must be insuring Lee Ann good luck with her surgery. Sounded like a good idea to me, and to a lot of other bloggers. So last week, which was a truly irritating one, was somewhat easier as I would tell myself with every upset, "That's one more bad luck that won't find Lee Ann".
And now all of a sudden, things are much smoother here, and I read that she even went for a walk. So there ya go, knitting karma?
Then the mail arrived, and I had a vacation postcards from Paul and my friend Sam who both were kind enough to share the fun! Thanks muchly!
And remember when I mentioned that the lady that taught me about spinning said that there was a handspinner in my town? Well, I emailed her but never heard back. Dunno what happened there but she called me! Sounds like an amazing woman...she's even raising silk worms! We have tentative plans to get together soon. And she tells me that there is a Yahoo group for fiber folks here. I'll join that for sure. AND, there's even going to be a retreat in the fall...in MY town. So even if something happens to the vehicle, I can still go! I'm so jazzed!
And there is a new member to my extended family. Meet Sadie. She's a 6 wk old West Highland Terrier that now calls The Girl 'Mama'. It's her 12th birthday present..actually her birthday isn't until next month, but there ya go. She's adorable! TG brought her down Friday evening as soon as they got home but the poor little thing mostly just shivered. Not so last night. She gave Zoey a run for the money. It's hysterical watching my big girl try to play with this tiny thing. I'm not even sure she knows what it is. Zoey was still up for playing, but Sadie, like babes the world over, just needed a nap! Too cute!
And it's still much cooler than it has been. Right now it's 64 degrees. I'm loving this!
The luck ran out tho when I worked on Sunday Socks. They got frogged about 9 last night, and restarted. Maybe there will be enough to show later on.
