sweet Friday!   2 comments

Oh, I had plans for today, when I got up – it’s mid-day, and I have already revised the list. Here’s the original:

Errands:
Post office
EBS to order dirt for raised beds
Dump
Grocery store

Housework:
Laundry
Change bed
Start spring cleaning

Work-work:
Compile end of season tax stats
Complete report
Check email

Knitting:
Finish the darned leg warmers!
Finish red hat that’s been on the needles way too long
Start baby blanket (really crochet, but whatever)

Here’s the revised list:

Errands:
Post office – ooh, yarn winder delivered, AND first ever Webs order.
Wind new yarn
Resist winding all yarn in house, because it is so fun to do.
EBS dirt order placed. To be delivered Monday or Tuesday

Housework:
Change bed
Laundry – there is no escaping this one

Work-work:
All those same things

Knit and knit and knit

Notice the groceries, the dump and the spring cleaning are gone.
I should have remembered that since this is the first Friday at home, I would be really slow to get going, with little or no energy, in spite of the really long list of things that are calling me. I think knitting will get the rest of my afternoon. Maybe I will clean the bathroom so that tomorrow is a more pleasant day. But maybe not, too.

the new yarn winder distracted me. I have read blogs and reviews from people who just couldn’t stop talking about how great this tool is. I have been knitting for more than 40 years, winding balls by hand, and really thought they were all a bit overboard. But I won that basketball bracket bet, and so got my own winder, and now I know – they were all understating how great this thing is. My word, in MINUTES I can wind a whole skein of yarn! It is neat, tight, the pull out yarn is easy to find. WOW. I love it. I already had a swift, and thought that was all the help I would need to wind great skeins. Was happy with it for many years, but now I know, it was only half the solution.

ps the cats love it too, they were fascinated, sat and watched the whole process. Which is good – better than them helping. 🙂

  1. Everything on my list didn’t get done today, either. Will finish a few more things then call it a day. Oh well, there is always tomorrow. I can just imaging your cats watching you wind yarn. They were plotting on just how they could jump into that thing and make it stop, Ha!

    • Some Friday lists are just more realistic than others, I guess. 🙂 Yes, they were definitely thinking that it was some kind of new toy, and I imagine they will not sit as quietly in the future!
