Flotsam and Jetsam

Have you ever seen a litter box float? Have you ever wanted to?

Thanks for the kind kind words from my fellow bloggerknitters. I really appreciate it!

It is 1:41 pm and Service Master has 20 minutes before they are outside of the 12 - 2 window. Not that I am going anywhere.

I joined the Irish Hiking Scarf KAL. I'm amazed at my thrill with cables (Mandy, you were totally right...once again). I was so afraid of them for so long. I am using my stitch markers from HideandSheep on Etsy. I love them. They are pretty and functional. What more could a girl want. I'm making my first Irish Hiking Scarf already. I am on the first row of the first cables. I'm using some functional but not fancy yarn in a pretty heather grey that I like working with. It's machine washable and plan is that the scarf will be gifted.

Because of the Pride Parade in Chicago on Sunday, I decided to skip my WW meeting which feels so negligent, indulgent even. Although missing has not kept me away from my goals and my eating really hasn't changed. I just took a lasagne out of the oven...lots of spinach, ground turkey and mushrooms. Yum-my and healthy. Gotta love the lycopene in the tomato sauce. (I dunno, just making conversation.) What do I really know of lycopene in order to love it. I don't have the interest in the engagement process, so I will just trust the "professionals" and eat it because I like it. Lycopene or no.

A very very large package just arrived on our porch from Amazon. I did not order it. I am curious. I will have to wait until after 7 when DP comes home from work.

Back to the flotsam and jetsam. The alley is not flooded anymore - with water. Now there is debris, furniture, broken items, ruined belongings from basements. I am wondering if I am going to need to rent a dumpster for the stuff we have. My stomach leapt at the thought and now I'm nauseous again.

Better go knit. It calms me.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear about the flooding issues that you're having to deal with right now...I've got my fingers crossed that it will be a relatively easy cleanup and that a rental dumpster will not be necessary! In any case, I hope that the cable knitting is providing you with some therapy with all the other stress...Take care!
