A Few Gems...

Check out these gems I received in an email:

"My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely."  

Let me take this opportunity to relate a blog blunder from this morning. I was going thru the blogs I read, and commented on somebody's post. Then I realized I had confused her with another blogger, and had to go back and re-post an apology for the confusion (thereby proving myself to be a moron). When I went to look for the original blogger....oh yeah, it WAS her all along. So, I left 3 comments, in succession, proving to all and sundry just how stupid I can be, without any effort at all.

"The nice part about living in a small town: when you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does."

"The best way to forget all your troubles is to wear tight shoes."
without a doubt.

"Amazing, you hang something in your closet for a while and it shrinks two sizes!"
(groan) Flashbacks from the night before our Mother's Day Tea...

And, from a poem by Maya Angelou, "Every woman should know what she can't accomplish in a day...a month...a year."
Ms.Angelou needs to come live with me for a week. I think we can learn a lot from each other.

Wouldn't that be a hoot? What wouldn't I do to get her here for a week!?!  She'd more than likely leave here babbling and in need of intense therapy (you know, my normal state), but wouldn't that just make me feel sooo......justified. Validated. 

and I would sooo teach her to knit (if she doesn't already).

Progress on the Ship Ahoy sweater...made possible by a days worth of meetings yesterday:


gotta love the top down raglan!

And finally, it's taken me until 3am...but I just caught up on all the blogs I read.

Happy Mother's Day, everybody!


  1. oooh cool sweater! Can't wait to see the finished project.

    Thanks for stopping by...

  2. I love the sweater, it's going to be so nice. And I like the picture across the top of your blog. What a beautiful place to live. I just popped over from the Ravelry RAK.
