Rain Rain Go Away....


PLEASE!!!!!


I know people around here are used to these storms, but OMG. This has been happening ALL summer! If you're lucky enough to just be HOT and DRY, I really think you have a lot to be grateful for. Yesterday we even had tornado warnings to add to the party too! Lucky! Lucky! Today is more of the same, LOTS of rumbling, rain, and constant warnings for severe weather. Where's that magic genie bottle to get me out of here....

Not much knitting going on. I did dye some yarn the other day but have yet to wind it. I had to do it twice because I don't measure things (my bad) so I had to reset the dye by heating it again. It worked thankfully. I also didn't use my gloves so I had blue fingernails for a couple of days. That was kind of funny. I haven't worked much on my socks, and haven't worked at all on my preemie hats. But my knitting meeting is this weekend so I'll take them with me and try to get something done. (I hope, I do tend to have more fun laughing and gabbing)...

I didn't participate in WWKIP day, there was only one event I knew of but it was too far away. So I did the next best thing and went shopping for yarn (Hobby Lobby). I'd just placed the LAST item I wanted in my basket when their power went out. (Pitch black! Thank goodness for cell phones!) We left to eat thinking it would come back on but when we got back it was the ONLY store in the whole shopping center that was still out so they just closed shop. Luckily, my hubby is a sweetie and drove me clear across town to the other one. Needless to say, it made for a LONG errand running day and my body cursed me for it with the fibro/AI pain.

Well, if you're nice and dry, ENJOY! And if you're Knitting! ENJOY!! Send me a postcard saying "Wish You Were Here!"
