i suppose if our basement hadn't flooded and wiped out our hot water heater, things might be easier today . . . alas, sorely in need of a hot shower, i've been sidetracked today, NOT by the Superbowl and all the game-day preparations involved, but by knitting primarily.
my little artist and creative daughter, jessie has caught the knitting bug from her grandmother, who she has been living with. apparently this virus is spreading. jessie came in yesterday with some cotton yarn (i'm allergic to wool), some knitting needles for me. she made herself a hat a couple of days ago that we both marvelled at, so now it is my turn.
here i want to give some inspirational credit to my new and most interesting blogger friend, yarny old kim. i have seen her knitted socks live and in person and i'm not sure i'll ever get there, but it is something i aspire to.
i should be cleaning the house because we have a small crowd decending upon us for festivities (which really means, I cook a lot of food, and they sit in front of the TV cheering and groaning depending on the Giants' performance). i have a lot of cooking to do too.
instead i've alternated between sitting on my little couch in the sun room with the cat on my lap, reading Pattie Boyd's book about being married to both George Harrison AND Eric Clapton. seems greedy to me, but whatever . . . and then sitting in the other chair with the foot stool and knitting or attempting to anyway. i made significant progress in the knitting and then dropped a couple of critical sticthes at the end. my daughter is sitting here now trying to help me fix it.
i suppose this is a good time to get busy cooking and cleaning, but i thought blogging would be much more fun!
i wonder how disappointing the ads will be this year . . . saw a CBS Sunday Morning story about how they are ALL geared towards the web . . . even traditional broadcast media is bowing to this new media beast!
hope you all enjoy your sunday, no matter what you are celebrating or doing!
