Happy Thursday. I don't have much to say today, nope not much at all. Just little random bits of thoughts. First, I think I need to get better taking pictures for this blog. I look back on my blog, (like for instance my last post) and realize my pictures really stink. I never edit them, that may be where I need to start. I am a point and shoot gal, and whatever comes out, comes out. The light in my house is not so great even though I live in sunny Florida. The light comes in my house only seconds a day, the rest of the time things are dark. I like it that way to live in but for picture taking it is not the best.
I have trouble getting the right colors to show up. Notice my last post again, that baby blanket is really colorful in a pastel baby sort of way. The colors in previous posts are much more true to life.
Some pictures almost take themselves though don't they? My little buddy found Fluffy Baa-Baa and had a nice smooch with her. He said the word Fluffy with his tongue sticking out between his lips, which might have been the cutest thing I have ever seen. Of course I made him repeat it a million and one times so I could have a little chuckle.
Fluffy got to have some fun in the wagon. She has been missing her little girls at Gracie's house so loved having a little playtime. Gracie you can tell your granddaughters that Fluffy is having fun over here in Florida. We pulled Fluffy everywhere and gave her a nice ride. She was exhausted after all the activity. Now Fluffy and I are a bit sad because my buddy went home yesterday, it is awfully quiet here at my house.
It has been chilly here. Now you can all stop laughing as I know it is probably freezing where you are. I want you to picture me outside at 6 this morning chipping heavy frost off my son's windshield with an old credit card (we don't have ice scrapers here). I am sure I was a sight in my white fluffy robe and slippers. We have had several mornings hovering at freezing, which to a lot of you is a giant heat wave, but for us in damp, windy Florida it is cold. I wonder how Mr. 20 year old is handling it in Ohio? Nothing like getting out of swim practice with wet hair and walking home in 3 degree temps.
I am at day 26 of not buying yarn and I am going strong. Knit Picks you can send me your new yarn catalog and I am not going to succumb to your temptations. Speaking of Knit Picks, has anyone used their interchangeable needles? I got a set from my lovely medical foster care mother and her brother for Christmas and I find them a bit unnerving as they come unscrewed while I am stitching. This is my first experience with interchangeables and while I love the beautiful wood and sharp points I do not like being in a panic that they are going to come unscrewed and lose a bunch of stitches. I have used that little screw device to get it all screwed together tighter, but so far I am not thrilled.
Is anyone reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt or is everyone reading it? Any thoughts on this book would be appreciated. I am next on the list to pick a book for my book club and this one is number two on the best seller list, but I have read mixed reviews.
How is your Thursday going?
