I’m borrowing Dar’s title for yesterday’s project because I didn’t have time to blog yesterday.
Yesterday was cool and cloudy, a great day to finish my crocheted hat. Personally, I like it better off my head. Why can’t I be a hat person?? I just hate the way it looks on my head. Maybe because there’s no hair hanging down like all the models show.
Neighbor Darcy also crochéts. I went to get some advice from him about how to attach the brim, which was constructed separately, and he was making a sweater for my doggy! He is so sweet and kind. She loves it and I love the color on her.
After a few trips back and forth to his house, I had my advice, a bag of scrap yarn, and a new sweater for Brandy. He said copy it to make Whiskey one and I just laughed and laughed. I’m not that good! I need a pattern. When I’ve been sewing as long as Darcy and Maria, then I can freehand things. Maria is also very kind and generous. I went to visit her the other day and came home with a sample of some delicious chai tea she had. I’m drinking it as I type this.
Other than sew, we went to Eloy to get a few things, including a snack for Mexican Train last night. I came in second , but there are no prizes given at this game night. Winners have the lowest score at the end of the game. Players just get bragging rights. I was complimented on the rock I found for David. When I find Karl again, I’m going to ask him to polish it for me. I’m sure there’s crystals in it! (We use rocks as our “trains” in the game, a practice started by the local rock hounds around here.)
Today will be spent enjoying the weather, since tomorrow’s forecast is for heavy rain. It would be our luck to get here during monsoon season! Still, as long as it’s not freezing, I don’t care. We have to run back to Eloy to get stuff for New Year’s Dinner, cabbage, black-eyed peas, and ham…maybe some cornbread. Jeez, I’ve been eating so much I hope I don’t get fat! I’ve been lucky enough to eat whatever I want and only had a couple of issues with the diverticulitis. I’ve stayed away from nuts and broccoli though.
