Yeah, I missed it again. I’d like to say I have a great excuse, but of course, I don’t. This time it was the wine. I wasn’t stinko or anything like that, but we had a dinner guest here at the lake. We had a fabulous meal (compliments of Husband’s and my committee effort of spaghetti and salad and bruschetta) and even more fabulous conversation, and of course… fabulous wine. We opened a bottle of 2010 Rancho Zabaco zin…man, is this stuff good wine with pasta! We shared it and then finished the bottle of merlot we had already opened yesterday, so I was mellow. More mellow than I thought, apparently, because after Ron left and I’d cleaned up the kitchen, I sat down to read, thinking I’d blog after I’d read a chapter or two. Ummmm…it’s now 6:30 the next day. Good wine and good food and good fellowship = good sleep. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
So something I noticed yesterday is that I don’t knit at the lake. I think that’s strange because I love, love to knit. I knit at home when I watch TV and when I got to chemo with Dee. I always bring my knitting with me, I knit in the car on the way up, and I intend to knit while I’m here, but somehow, I never open my knitting bag. After our walk yesterday, I gave this matter serious thought as I sat here (not knitting). I probed deeply into my own rather convoluted and currently rather messed-up psyche, thinking there had to be something about the lake and knitting that wasn’t connecting for me and trying to figure a way to make knitting a part of lake life.
Well, the answer is kinda simple really–actually, pretty much a “well, duh!” kind of response. We don’t have television here and at home, I knit when I watch TV. That’s all there is to it… so, I guess I need to learn to knit without the tube. I can probably do that. 😉
Five Things I’m Grateful for Today (well, yesterday!):
- A real spring, not the winter into hot weather we’ve had the last few years
- Son’s excitement over his dad’s upcoming visit
- All the blooming trees–redbuds, magnolias, cherry trees, apple trees, everything’s gorgeous this year thanks to real spring!
- The new furniture arrangement in the cottage living room is really great–I like it!
