*I had a dream the other night that I was at a fiber festival with Blogless Sharon and Lois. We were staying at a hotel and as I was getting ready to leave I said to Lois, “Listen, if you’re not winning then you’re losing and don’t let anybody tell you any different.” This is pretty far from what I believe when I’m awake so I’m intrigued by the fact that I said it so emphatically in a dream.
*Why is it that I can knit a pair of socks in 36 hours when it’s for competition but it takes me more than 6 weeks to finish a pair that’s not part of a competition? I’ve been working on these socks since February 16th and I’m just now getting to the gusset decreases on sock two. Sheesh.
*I’ve kept track of the books I’ve read for many years. I finished a book the other day and went to record it in my notebook and was shocked to see that it’s the first book I’ve finished since January. This is pathetic for a librarian.
*I always listen to Jesus Christ Superstar and Godspell at this time of year to psyche me up for Palm Sunday and Easter. Even after 30 years of doing this (I started in 7th grade) I never get tired of this music.
*After several years of talking about it, Dale and I have finally purchased a share in a local CSA. It will start in mid-June and I’m really excited to see what we’ll be getting each week.
*I won a prize in a contest over at Lisa’s and it arrived yesterday. I love prizes in general but a prize package that includes roving from dear Teyani and a book signed by the author plus chocolate – well, it doesn’t get better than that. Thanks, Lisa!
*Last week at “quilt night” not one of the 6 of us was actually quilting – we were all knitting. And yet we still call it quilt night. Go figure.
*Dale and I are holding a Civil War Living History in our home town. This is the third year we’ve done so and you wouldn’t think we’d have any problems. However, the committee who “oversees” the property is giving us a very hard time, claiming that we’ve left trash behind and stolen shingles off one of the buildings and then used those shingles for kindling. They say we refused to move cars that were parked on a septic system and that our guests were observed using the great outdoors for a bathroom rather than the portable facilities we provided. (That’s my personal favorite of this entire list of ridiculous accusations.) I wrote a three page letter to our Board of Selectmen about this committee. I feel better now.
