Random Thoughts from the Weekend

1. Driving to work with no top and no doors on the Jeep doesn’t do great things for my hair. But it sure is fun.
2. My friend Brian makes awesome chocolate martinis. I shouldn’t have more than 2, though. I especially shouldn’t have more than 2 when my friend Amy, who happens to be Brian’s wife, and I are trying to plan the menu for my 40th birthday extravaganza.
3. I learned to do the Cable Cast On when I was knitting the baby kimono for Ambrynn. I like this cast on. A lot.
4. Thanks to my sister-in-law, Mary, I was able to make this delicious tomato-basil-mozzarella salad as the first course of our dinner on Friday night. Mary supplied the fresh tomatoes, basil, olive oil, nasturtiums and calendula. I bought the cheese and threw it all together.
5. Dale’s Boy Scout troop resumes their Monday night meetings starting tonight. This signals the return of Monday nights as uninterrupted knitting time. Waa Hoo.
6. Margene says the first sign of fall is having to put on the wool hand knit socks. Well, I broke down yesterday morning and put them on because it was cold in my house. Today, however, we’re supposed to hit 90 or more. Welcome to New England, where we tell you, if you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes, it’ll change.
7. George Bush has announced that’s he going to head up an investigation into the problems with the response to Hurricane Katrina. As one late night comic pointed out, isn’t this a bit like OJ vowing to find the real killer?
8. This was standing outside my office this morning when I got to work. I guess I really do work in the sticks.
9. I really love all the comments you guys have been leaving. Please keep it up, as I am, apparently, a Comment Ho.
10. Some one of these days I’ll talk about knitting again.

  1. I nearly fell out of my chair reading #1 this morning. Then I finished the sentence and driving with no top suddenly sounded far less risque.

  2. Chocolate martini? Now…that’s something I haven’t tried. Then again, I haven’t tried ANY martini’s because…once I tried gin. I thought it tasted like nail polish remover smells. so no martinis for me. Lately, I have been hearing the merits of the Lemon Drop martini however. Maybe. Chocolate? can’t picture it. Boy scouts should be starting here soon as well. Another sign of fall for me. 🙂

  3. lol apparently them thar things live around me as well…earlier this summer i was knitting just as the sun was trying to come up (no i was not up early…hadn’t gone to bed yet!) and i kept hearing this odd noise behind me (window)…finally dawned on me that it was a turkey or turkeys (turkies?? lol) gobbling, though i never did spot the sneaky things…i keep watching for them though :o)

  4. #7 is very very funny.
    What part of New England? I have family in Needham MA and a good friend near Plymouth.
    Ahh those uninterupted knitting hours are a joy!
