I know it's a gradual change but yesterday when I left work I realized that it was still light out at 5 PM. Light! When I was getting into my car to drive home! It didn't last long but still, it was real, actual light.
We had a little company last night so I didn't get to my third fishtail swatch, that would take too much concentration which would be rude. Instead I cast on the cuff of the other Pink & Fuzzy Mitten. I love knitting with big yarn and big needles--it goes fast. I keep having to work at work so my daily knitting output has dropped off considerably. I intend to change that this weekend.
The squirrel population has been very active this morning since I filled all the feeders but everything screeched to a halt when this guy flew in for a look-see. He left dissatisfied but sure put a stop to the morning romp for a few minutes. Not many birds yet.
January 23--Ron Sanford & Mike Agliolo, A Grip on the Future. His hand feels like wires in mine, all sharp angles and cold. We have to hold hands, they say. We're supposed to be a team, a couple, but how anyone would ever believe that a flesh-and-blood girl like me would attach herself to a plastic-coated cyborg is beyond me. I can pretend for the camera. I'm not a bad actress but when the lights go out I am not crawling into bed with a guy made out of stainless steel and neoprene.
Today's the first day of my weekend and I'm looking forward to knitting and sewing for a few days, not doing chores. We'll see how that goes. Can you believe that there's only a week of January left? I see the dates count up and I am amazed.
