It has turned a new leaf and it is quiet around here -- shh! Someone might wake a raging giant. I have loved today. A little knitting, a good steak with baked potato and mixed veggies, and the thought of peaceful slumber is going to hit me soon. It is only 11:13 pm. I sit here quietly in my den using a keyboard to send you how I feel. I never knew how much 3800 people could write in a day. With 25 a crack, you want to throw it out, but then -- someone might need help you can give, or they may need a shoulder to lean on. After all, my problems seem like an ant from 30,00 feet in the air in a big jet. I may be needed, or it could turn and I may need someone. But peace is there now and I feel like someone is taking care of me. With all of the exertion from last week, this peace is great. You know, like when your about to fall off to sleep and all is right with the world.
I have at least two more KALs to work on. One I have done a lot of socks for already, so I can catch up easily. I am not cheating, they take you as you come. The other Kal is for a stole, a mystery stole, the third one. I can not believe that many have written in that the first clue is completed. That is one hundred rows. Phew - what a pace. You can bet a lucky penny that I will not be in that group, but I will be with the group. A nice difference isn't it? I can go at my slow pace and not feel pushed. After all this is Minnesota and Lake Wobegon is just over the horizon. I can tell that peace will hit me soon. My eyes droop and I am thirsty. Isn't it that the way it is?
What do you people like to knit? I can talk about any kind, whether I really understand it or not, I can try. It's great fun to learn about people, especially their fun relaxations and the accomplishment you feel doing them. Our family used to go the circuit of local fairs in the fall. By now we'd have veggies to clean and trim, clothing to press, canning to shine up, and exhaustion from doing all the work. But seeing a ribbon on the projects was great fun. Give yourselves a ribbon for your accomplishments in knitting or whatever is you fun. Give yourself a big pat on the back, just watch the arm as to not fall over from a very exuberant pat. I need to go to that place of rest to renew my body for tomorrow. Have a peaceful night or day depending on where you live. Think about all the knitting you have done and find a sense of freedom in that. A very Good Night (Day) to you all. Dove
