Monday night I wandered into the kitchen at church to fill my cup with ice for movie night. I discovered this fabulous ice quite by accident a couple of years ago. Small, squares about the size of that almost forgotten “Chicklets” gum. Second only to Sonic ice, but that’s a story for another day.
So, Monday night I went in to fill my cup before the movie. And the ice machine was NEW. Yea!
My second favorite ice had been replaced with plain ice – flat, bland – like they have at McDonald’s. Ordinary. Not special.
If I can’t have my second favorite ice, then why do I keep keys to the church? I complained mightily, filled my cup anyway. Because it IS summer…
Knitting. That’s why we’re here. Usually. Working on a sweater for a designer. I’m a test knitter. Did y’all know that? She sends me a pattern – no picture, because what I’m knitting will BE the picture. Yummy yarn. Usually really fabulous stuff that I might not have otherwise been able to knit with. And. She pays me to knit her stuff. Can’t take pictures of these, because they’re not mine to share. But I can tell you about my progress. The sweater I’m working on today was due the first of June. I’m not finished. I need about three more inches on the back. Haven’t started the front. Sleeves are about halfway there. My excuse? Camp. And all over cables are really, really slow. Not too complicated, just slow. And I love the yarn and I love the pattern…just slow. And I haven’t planted anything. I’ve been knitting.
But I’m back – got an updated IPad and keyboard. My old IPad was limping along and my mother got one when she replaced Sarah’s phone. She had solitaire, bridge and a jigsaw puzzle on it and wasn’t enjoying it…at all. MINE. Thanks, Mom!
