Have you any wool? Anyone going from Boston area? I am thinking of heading up and petting the sheep. I am torn though; I want to go to my 1st fiber festival, but I need to clean my house and get ready for Mom's Day Brunch...
And it's going to rain. Hmm.. wet sheep must smell like wet wool.
Let me know if you are going!
Tonight: 1st guild meeting. Have zero idea of what to expect from this. Mother hen types wanting to laugh at my use of color? Or more like my new favorite thing (SnB Thursdays) and very cool women who are just immediately your "peeps" and laugh with you when you drop stitches and want to consider it a design element b/c you might have to put down your coffee to fix it.
Either way, I'm there.
Work is minorly frustrating right now. And we are in the midst of some new "documentation procedure changes" so that means I can't find ANYTHING. I want to cry or at least go home and play with Pumpkin.
Pumpkin--- how can such a small cat command such a large area of the bed? We weren't going to allow her to sleep with us... that lasted all of 3 minutes. She's acting like a cat now. She almost bit PC last night and she could care less about me when "he" is home. Oh, and does anyone else have a cat that likes the bathtub? Not with water... just gets in there and sits. Oy.
Dad: surgery scheduled for next Wed. Please, all the knitters out there, please think happy good knitterly thoughts for my dad. He's going to need it. He is having the most difficult surgery performed for tumor removal. He will have a lung deflated and his heart moved, along with one (or more) ribs removed. This is big. Scary and big. I will be knitting at the hospital with my mom... holding her hand and being there for whatever she needs.
Mom's Day Brunch : here is my menu (feedback appreciated!)
Mixed green salad with cranberries-feta-almonds and champagne dressing
Baked French Toast (casserole)
Banana Bread Muffins
My mom, PC's mom, PC's dad and PC and I--- 5 peeps. Should be enough food. :) My dad is spending his last pre-op days in Florida with my brothers. He wants to golf and be with his boys. It's important to him. I'll see him a lot more post-op than they will I am sure.
Have a great knitting day!
