Happy Memorial Day

How fitting that my poppies chose today to bloom! Truly gorgeous...The clip of my plying sample, not so much, and that is why no one shall see it!

And Robert's Rules of Order? I have a friend who is constantly asking if anyone has a copy believe it or not! Well, now she does - or will - once I see her. I found this at the flea market outside of Dewittville this weekend.

And That's What I Did Today

I decided to play "princess" today. I slept in...until I heard poor hubby fall down the stairs. Don't worry, he's fine.

After a nice cup or two of coffee, I watched an episode or two of The Tudors and did a bit of spinning. Isn't it brilliant? Look back a few entries and you will see the Happy Family we did at Raveloe. I plan on plying this with some black super wash wool, but I have yet to decide what it wants to be. At first I thought socks, but we'll see.

Then this princess took herself to her royal chambers and cleaned the bejeebers out of them cuz the chamber maids appear to have been sent to another part of the castle. I was so into my task, I tore the vacuum apart and cleaned out every bit of it as well! Yes, I actually enjoy cleaning...makin' that OCD work for me, right ME?

But the most decadent part of all? Staying in my jammies all day before I get taken out to dinner. Ah, the bliss of it all.

*BTW, if you have not watched The Tudors, you must. The first two episodes were a bit over the top, but now I love it. I almost makes me forget Henry is a real rat bastard. Oh, and Cardinal Woolsey.....

The Things We Learn, Even When We Are Not Trying!

This morning DH needed a few things fine tuned at the hospital. When we arrived the waiting room was empty allowing me to knit without the usual stoooooopid comments about how they used to crochet and make lampshades...blah, blah, blah.
As the morning progressed I found out some interesting things such as yellow comes in many shades, you can use scotch tape to put up perfectly good pictures in your bathroom to make it POP!, that a bunion can be so bad it will actually break the the neighboring toes requiring one to tape them together, two pound bags of potato chips are best enjoyed at 9:00 in the morning while reading trashy supermarket gossip rags, Mr. XYZ's prep did not work so he'll have to wait to be scoped....
So here is the lesson: I can hear you. Everyone in the room can hear you and we really do not want to. I now understand why people text the person sitting next to them.

Aren't I Lucky?

This young lady amazes me; she truly does. I am one lucky mother.

Dear Jet Blue,

I am not happy. Please do not leave a message telling me my flight home was canceled. Please do not have me wait on hold while the slow, but very nice young woman tries to re-book my flight. And please do not have my friend stand at the counter at JFK for over 40 minutes while the other nice, but very slow young man tries to fix the mistakes that were made the previous evening while we were on hold for 48 minutes.

And seriously, do not ask me to fill out a "Customer Satisfaction Survey" after I lost six hours of my visit with my daughter.
