Snafus, weeds and a new friend
My goodness, it seems like eons since I have posted! We had anelectric snafu that lasted 6 days, yes, 6 days without electric! Then my poor, old, tempermental computer decided it needed a vacation, so it went away to Computer Vacationland, and has just returned, rested and ready to work!
Have you been having a problem with weeds this spring? I am mostly talking about dandelions! My goodness, they are taking over the entire city! I'm thinking it must be due to the warm winter we had, with a very limited snowfall. I am not sure, but I think i saw a sci-fi movie about the weeds taking over! It has gone from 1 pretty dandelion to whole fields full! Allergy meds are flying off the shelves!! It may be a bit soon to ask for it, but we need a cold, snowy winter!
Now I am going to tell you about my afternoon. There is yarn store in the town I live in. It is called Ewe-Nique Knits. I have lived in this town for 8 months and never, until today, have ventured inside. Now, seeing you don't know me except through this blog, you don't know how hard it is for me to talk to a stranger. I just clam up, break out in sweats, the whole nine-yards! My daughter has told me that I really should check the place out. I love crocheting and am getting back to knitting and there is nothing like being surrounded by yarn! It is a calming experience, at least for me. So, today I ventured out. I probably sat in my car, outside the shop, for a good 5 minutes. I finally gave myself a talk, opened my car door and went inside the shop. It was heaven!! I touched every hank and skein of yarn in the store, looked at book upon book, and guess what? I talked to the owner! The nicest woman there is! She talked to me about the yarn, projects she has done, showed me a scarf she designed and then, she invited me to come to the Monday group that meets! I tell you, I haven't felt this good or happy in a while! The knitting night is April 16 and I am going!! Besides getting help with my projects, I may make another friend!
I must be off now. Have some things left to do today before I can play with my new yarn and needles! Thanks for stopping by and hopefully, I won't have anymore snafus in the future!
