In my last job I was a peon, basically. A number cruncher & a (virtual) paper pusher. An organizer of electronic files & drafter of letters for my boss (not to sell myself short here – I did research the issues before drafting the letters). In my current job I am responsible for a good deal more and I’m realizing that I’m not temperamentally suited to this. Oh, I’m doing a fine job & things are mostly going ok, but Everything is Dire and Could Be Disastrous – at least in my head. Basically, I need a chill button or I’m going to give myself an ulcer. I am nothing if not a Drama Queen. Sheesh. On that note, let’s take a look at last week.

I’m “Singing Last Year’s Christmas Cantata” in the car cool. Can you beat that?
Blanket square in my 4th colorway.

Dr. M spent some time out on the deck today. He had some company. I wonder if spiders eat stink bugs?

Your weekly furniture, some of it still in progress.

I voted! I was a little annoyed that the person who checked me in didn’t need to see my driver’s license.

Another square, in my 1st colorway. I like this one a lot!
Friday, October 19th
Dr. M voted! Can you guess his party affiliation?
I used the new ruler app on my phone to measure my square! Except that to get an accurate measurement I need to stretch the square. I didn’t really have enough hands for the task. Cool idea though.

I’m thinking about using this Celtic Lace pattern to join my squares, but man it uses a lotta yarn! Also, it takes a good bit of time to put three extra rows around each square. And as its name implies, it’s lacy - so maybe more decorative than functional. I’ve used the flat braid join in the past & I like it fine, but this is so pretty. Decisions decisions!
Today I took the radical move of deleting two game apps from my phone (a word game & a solitaire game). My bedtime habit has been to get into bed & then play these two games before turning off the light. Some nights I can barely hold my eyes open, but by golly I’m going to get through this daily solitaire challenge! Yeah, nope. If I MUST sit up in bed before turning the light off, I’m going to read something in an actual book (no screens!). Maybe that book of Mary Oliver poetry that I dipped into last year. We shall see!
