Now I run from you...
Welcome to Wednesday! Another cold day in New York, but at least it's sunny. Friends in Seattle and the PNW, I have no idea how you do it! A week without sunshine leaves me grumpy and annoyed.
I'm doing some knitting for the Thacher auction in May. Hopefully the stuff I send will sell! So far I've made a Binary Cable Hat in orange and I'm working on a scarf in green (school colors, yo!). I suppose they'll need to be in Ojai by April, so I'm actually ahead of the game! But I did buy that big lot of yarn I was swooning and whining about a couple days ago, so I'm feeling the need to use up the yarn I have hanging around. Robert pointed out yesterday that we need to organize our arts and crafts stuff in the play room (aka finished room in the basement)- my sewing stuff (I practically never use it, but I can't bear the thought of giving up the machine or the fabric I have. What if I need them someday?? I know, classic hoarding behavior. But you know, what if I wanted to whip up some crooked curtains? Hmm, typing this has me answering my own hypothetical questions: clearly what I should do is give my machine and fabric away (it's an ancient machine and there isn't much fabric) and hire Becka to do any sewing I may need in the future. Cause she's only on like day 1000 of work without a break, so I'm sure she could find the time to sew me some straight curtains, or whatever. Becka's got sewing skillz, man! /longest digression in ages), his art robot parts, tools, etc.
On to other subjects!
Yesterday Liel was packing a plastic bag full of various toys she'd culled from the toy baskets and shelves. I asked her why she was putting them all in a bag and she said, "So I can take them to Uncle Kenny's!" and carried on finding toys to fit in the bag. A moment later she found a baby washcloth and tucked it in, too. "I taking this cloth in case I need to wipe my face while I am there", she offered. "In case...in case I get cake on it!"
That's my girl, always prepared!
