We were supposed to have a deluge overnight; we're lucky if we had a sprinkle. My sister had a deluge yesterday and, oh, they sure need it -- far northern Wisconsin is suffering severe to extreme drought conditions. It looks as though most of the weather is passing through to our north -- we're right "on the line." I would just like it to pass, please, and let the cooler air come in! /weather
Today, it's official: I feel like crap. It has a lot to do with the heat and many, many other things that I can't control -- I know, I know, I've got to let those things go-o-o-o-o-o -- and I've got to get out from under this funk so I can do something about the things that I can control. It would be nice if there was a little more balance between the can-control and the can't-control. Perhaps I should make a list -- maybe it's not as bad as I think.
I'm not sure about that really bright yellow strip. I'm not sure about my Log Cabin knitting at all, really, but I just keep riffing -- plucking a ball of yarn in a not-so-willy-nilly manner, even though it rather looks like I have. Does it look like crap? I don't even know what it's going to be. It's mostly bright and playful, and I do enjoy the knitting and the "seeing what happens" and the randomly generated row count (I like that a lot). It's very good 95-degrees-in-the-shade knitting, too, and the cotton is nice and absorbent (and washable), so it works well as a working work-in-progress for dabbing my glistening brow. ; ) I'm kidding... I actually use my shirt.
I'm looking at this as a sampler, an experiment, a getting-to-know you (yarn) and you (Log Cabin) piece. I am learning a lot about what I'll do differently next time in terms of color and design -- yeah, like doing some actual planning and design.
The baby tomato came full circle the other night. It was a momentous occasion, as well as delicious in a BLT. At the same time that I thought about (and then dismissed as silly) getting the camera, DH suggested it, so there you have it. We've all gone a little nuts in the heat. ; )
