This is the second of four cowls I've knit in the past couple of months... I think there's still one more (at least) that wants to come out.
Today was cleaning lady day! For my birthday present, Mom sent her cleaning lady over to spend a morning with me. It was really great... and exhausting! While she spent time doing the normal, routine stuff (that I normally do, but not as routinely as a probably should -- and certainly not all in one day, which is, to me, one of the very best things about having a cleaning lady), I dealt with piles and clutter and yarn and stuff. There's no shortage of any of those things anywhere in my house!
There was a bonus lunch with Mom today -- discussion about Thanksgiving (I can't believe it's Thanksgiving NEXT WEEK!), and a little bit about Christmas and even extending into April and birthdays, thanks to Maddy. Heh.
I'm off in just a bit for a hair cut that probably isn't completely necessary right now... and it occurs to me that I never even showed it since last time!
Book club tonight, and I haven't read the book... again. It wasn't the most stellar choice and won't likely merit much discussion -- and I've been enjoying what I've been reading instead. So there. There'll be some other fun stuff to talk about, I'm sure, and it's at a new restaurant I've been wanting to try.
Whew! It's one of THOSE days off!!
