Thursdays Out . . . January 20, 2011
Last week Rose gave Barbara a knitting pattern for a vest she wanted to make with some roughly-spun natural wool. It has a name but I haven't seen it written so can't remember what it is. It was supposed to keep Barbara busy at NeedleCrafts for weeks, but she came in with the completed vest this morning. Maybe she'll come in with a bucket of mail to sort next week, like I've been doing when short on other hand work.
Rose has thought about getting an electronic reader of some sort, but she hesitates until she makes a dent in what she estimates is 1,000 unread paperbacks neatly lined up on shelves awaiting her. She carries a 16-page, small-print list of what she already owns so she won't re- buy. Maybe she'll get her Kindle next Christmas. I told her I'd love to see her list and she pulled it out.
My excitement for the day still wasn't over. My sister and husband are having new floors put into the family home which they'll be retiring to before long, and I took delivery of the boxes of wood and tiles at the house so they can acclimate there for awhile before installation. Who knew?
See you tomorrow.
