- Does this little guy look just a teeny bit queasy? a tad bloated?
He's just consumed an entire starfish. (You may be asking why there was a starfish setting out on our back patio---in the heartland of America--hundreds of miles from the coast? Long, uninteresting story. It didn't need to be eaten, though.)
- Remember these?
They each got their mates a while ago, but their photo shoot finally happened...
the afterthought heel was bulls-eye right on...
Reynard socks by Kristin Kapur with mystery yarn. Too bad that fancy cuff will always be hidden under my pants.
- Do you make your bed first thing in the morning? Or is your theory that you worked hard to create that sleeping nest and you want it ready when you collapse at the end of the day? I like being able to say I accomplished at least ONE thing in the course of the day. (I used to threaten our kids that I'd make the bed with them in it if they didn't rise and shine. #1 Daughter got cocooned more than once.)
- And then, we have body parts.. (found during the major yarn-closet-clean up)
Can you tell what it's going to be?
The easy part is done. There are 14 pages of finishing instructions. I'm intimidated. (pattern: Boy elephant in textured sweater by Julie Williams--- of Little Cotton Rabbits fame!) I think I'll knit the elephant's sweater first. And then his shorts. THEN, maybe I'll think about giving him some personality and stuffing. (or put him back in the closet.)
- We're in the midst of the hummingbird migration. I spent a good part of the day trying to capture a great shot of a ruby-throated hummer, the only 'native'hummer we have in our state. (supposedly, the rufous hummingbird and the black chinned hummer are seasonal visitors, and the green violetears will sometimes make a rare appearance this far north. None of these have visited my feeder--at least while I've been stalking it with my camera.) The males have already left, getting their winter digs ready for the ladies. Even though the prettier guys are gone, by the end of the day, I would have settled for a mediocre shot of a drab looking female. I doubt you want to see my 287 near misses (out of nearly 800 shots....thank goodness for digital photography).
Yep. This was a totally wasted day (except for making my bed). I did assorted other uninteresting things that accomplished absolutely nothing.
I DID have someone draw a winner for the pincushion......
That would be me.
