I am now in the mood for yarn views.
The feasting is over. Whew. Yesterday, I woke up in the morning feeling very "cookish" and looking back, I had all the energy for preparing the feast that I needed. It did run out though. I always grow befuddled when almost everything is finished and the real orchestration of putting the food on the table commences. At this point I could walk away from it all and dine on a peanut butter sandwich. It's a good thing that there were a bunch of hungry loved ones around. It DID taste good and Bill did the dishes. I bought the pies and they were NOT delicious. The banana cream tasted like glue and the pumpkin looked rubbery (I didn't taste it). The cherry was too sweet. I'll bake next year. I am not cooking a turkey for Christmas. I will choose quicker dishes for that holy day. I DID bake chocolate chip cookies, but I used the break-and-bakes. I am really becoming a "short-cut taker" in my old age.
Today I want toast and tea. I'm tired from all that eating.
I have a few projects on the needles. I'm making an apple (a red one knit with roving wool). I am also making a cowl using a bit of soft and hairy yarn. I will go slow today, will you?
Lizzy is quite happy going slow. She slept through A LOT of noise yesterday. She's pink and she's peaceful.
Right now I am going to fill my little brain (and heart) with words from my fat black bible. I'm hungry for HIM.
