Friday Update

Because so many of you were kind enough to ask, here’s the word from the doctor this morning:

She said pre-cancerous means that the spot they got is all set – no need for more work on it. But, I have three more smaller ones that look like the larger one, so they will come off at the end of the month. A got a good look at them, and so she will look for more on me like them. Hopefully, there aren’t any.

Other updates – stopped at the PO this morning and got my mystery box from Rachel at All Night Knitter… HOLY COW!!! Rachel, this box is amazing! You totally went crazy, and I will love using it ALL. And silly as this may seem – the scissors are perfect, because I can take them in my carry-on bag when I go to Phoenix next week! I was trying to figure out how I would bring the knitting with no scissors. I was going to buy some when I got there. As for all the rest, I will really enjoy using it and thinking about how generous you were to send it all to me. I confess though – never done a ruffle scarf – it says the instructions are inside the wrapper – will it tell me all I need to know?

And just in case you didn’t know it already – all boxes that come into our house are subject to cat scans. Zumba loves to sleep in them. Tigger loves what Zumba loves. She might be older, but she is a typical little sister.

We had a nice time at the Stonington Farmer’s Market – got some heavenly peaches, fabulous chocolates, lots of bread and baked goods. Got to check in with Pat, the Island Community Center director, and thank her for letting me do taxes there again this coming winter. She is such a cheerful, peppy person, I love working with her.

Sadly, no crabmeat at the fish truck, and the shrimp dip lady wasn’t there. But we still managed to spend a lot and get some goodies. Turned out we had so many goodies, we didn’t stop for lunch, but came home, called and reserved a small SUV for the weekend – no trucks available, but we got one for next weekend – and made a stop at Lowe’s for a couple of big new trash barrels for the cellar workshop. I also found some glass tiles for the tray I am working on. It was tough though – why is everything so BEIGE in the big stores? I understand that beige is popular, but it is not the ONLY color for tiles. Someone should tell Lowe’s and Home Depot. Grocery store on the way home from that trip, and I think we are home for the evening!

A is making me supper tonight – not sure why but I am not arguing. Homemade turkey and cheese paninis. On farmers market oatmeal bread. Yum….

    1. I am! there is a niece returning to the area for college, the local fair, lots of fun and chores to do this week. Plus a little work. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        1. thanks very much. Of course I will, but I think if people just keep on writing about what they are doing, crafting, thinking, it will be all I need. I love reading these blogs. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I was wondering what would be in the box, and it is indeed stunning goodies. Luv the beautiful yarns. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Your kitties are so very cute. Enjoy the box goodies and show us what you made with it.

    1. I will – already have some ideas. ๐Ÿ™‚ You know the typical knitter’s adhd, hard to stay focused when there are so many new things coming along!

A Note From Abroad

โ€œTwenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didnโ€™t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.โ€ ~ Mark Twain
