(flower of the day, tomato)
wow, the sun came out this morning and the day was cool, but gorgeous. what more could i ask for?
we are SO gonna hit $5K. like tomorrow.
right now, our total is $4929—wanna go for $10K?
and, due to overwhelming piles of money flooding in at an alarming rate, claudia raised her goal—go read about it.
we have a few additions to our own party fund which you can view here. all you have to do is visit caludia, make a donation, and then email me to say you did. if you want to disclose the amount you can, and i will add it to our knitspot total (that part is just for fun, but it is a reminder of what everyday heroes can accomplish)
thank you, thank you, everyone, for your joyful participation. they used to say “give til it hurts”, and i always took that line very seriously, making sure that some amount of whatever i gained in life got passed back into circulation for doing good in the world. but in recent years, i am finding that i want to push past that, and try now to give til i feel free.
and meanwhile, back at the ranch,
i think my plants all doubled in size (or more) over the past few days.
he-he. uh, yeah, i know they need thinning. tomorrow morning, i swear. it was just so wet out there today . . . and there are a few weeds to pull, as well, i can assure you. and i need to start picking.
you heard right.
the greens are fairly exploding out of their bed. time to get busy.
guess where i’m at with the bee shawl?
the first 600 yards of yarn are just about gone and i’m almost ready for this. i’m poised to begin the third and final section. the one with the big bees and waving grass. and i really need to get serious about finding a bottom edging.
i would have done it sooner (you know me—any excuse to sit and browse through stitch books), but i’ve been afraid of getting lost in doing THAT, when i should be knitting.
maybe friday evening . . .
tree scum2 gets a heel
which means that very VERY soon i will be barreling down the foot of this one and soon i’ll be done. i have set aside my late-late-nite knitting time for accomplishing this.
(there is pretty much nothing BUT late-nite knitting around here, which is why i am now dividing it into segments—late-nite knitting accompanies my audiobook time; late-late-night knitting accompanies my TV hour).
speaking of which, i think the late-nite knitting needs to commence forthwith, before the witching hour is past.
