There will be knit talk! But, this is my best photo of our friend Amanda last night. It was so lovely out: warm then as the sun went down, chilly. We were treated to a spectacular moonrise as well. The Strawberry Moon the weather people have informed me. (Sorry for the blur) Did you see it last night? Did yoU?
It is such a different culture here. I love it. People sitting in their pick up beds around the arena. Girls on their horses laughing, sharing bags of popcorn, and of course….. checking their cell phones. Dogs, oh the dogs. There were 3 young pups, Id’ say they were, 16 weeks or so, and they just tumbled and ran and tumbled and ran around and around all of these horses. Not one horse spooked. I was told barrel racing horses are pretty immune to it all. I was told if these had been Show Horses they would likely spook at all of it.
I don’t know why I love looking at these creatures so much, I certainly don’t want to ride one.
Then theres this. Yup . I decided I had to have a teeny weeny amount of bangs. And yes I did it myself. Kudos to me. I did a fine job! I stood in the bathroom in front of the mirror for a full 5 minutes. Parting, reparting, thinking, and then I did the old twirl the hair and cut it.
Wonderful Grace Y sent me these two Twiddle Mitts! Thank you thank you Grace. They are so so soft. I am so touched with each package that arrives. I’ve been in contact with The Nursing home and they are looking forward to my sending a big box to them.
I can’t believe how some of you who have never commented, but read this lil ole blog, are making Mitts for my goal. I’m so touched by all of you. I’m doing well with Mom grief the past few days. I think with that awful Alzheimer disease there is some PRE grief . For me there were so many tears and nights we drove home after seeing my mom, where I just sobbed. It is sometimes very peaceful to know that journey is over. Bittersweet. Yup that’s the word.
My plans for today include:
* finishing a second sock. This is a plain vanilla sock piece o cake! I’m already near the foot.
*Starting another Twiddle mitt.
*Continuing to work on the screened porch arrangement. Miss Pie was giving me sass after I moved two chairs and a table around. She does not like HER things moved. I love that sassy pants girl.
*Watching the last of the Triple Crown races today!
