Knitting it all together
We are so divided in so many ways, yet we all love each other. John and I - the "girl next door" - no the CRAZY girl next door - raised a family that was so different from both of us, but my God, they are all so freaking interesting! How did we get here? Through hell, believe me. Things were not always good with John and me. I don't think a day went by for over twenty years when I didn't piss him off on a regular basis. And believe me, that takes a toll on things. I'm sure there are many people who decide to throw in the towel and leave. Neither of us is like that. I can't speak for John, but for me, I think I've stuck around for the same reason I've ever really thought about suicide: I'm too damn curious to see what's around the corner, that I cannot believe it won't be something better or more interesting. Perhaps that's what the sort-of-astrologer, Bob Breszny, would call pronoia - a kind of positive paranoia. Anyway....
Since last I posted, dear 2.5 readers, I went to dinner Thursday evening with Donna and Sally - two of the most beautiful voices in our choir - and had a lot of fun. Afterwards, we went to help with the final mailing push for the Orchestra. I had to leave early so John could have the car for work, but from what I understand, they got it all done! Yay!
Yesterday was a long, very tiring day in court, even though all I had was one hearing for each docket! A lot of "hurry up and wait" as they say in court biz, LOL. But that stuff tires you out more than outdoor exercise. Today I had a visit with a lovely client who has diabetes - we'd like to get her home with her relatives (both parents are gone, sadly). She's such a sweetheart, I am going to fight like the proverbial pit bull next week for her, believe me!
On my way back, I made a little mental health detour to Cloverhill Yarn shop in Catonsville, Merlin and got just a little something for a pair of mittens - fresh outta Vogue Knitting:
The minute I have the funds, I'm getting this book. I have been following Jared's work for years now via his blog - a blog with the loveliest photography. So it was no surprise that this was a young man studying for his MFA at FIT in NYC (while - you guessed it - living in Brooklyn!).
Well, I'm getting the swift and ballwinder out for that New England Shetland - why not?:)
Until next time, dear 2.5 readers, or however many of you there are:
God be with you 'til we meet again!+
