Part 1... morning..
The forecast is for rain..LOTS and LOTS of rain... 1"-2" today. That ought to decrease the snow piles. I've lit all the lights around my workspace hoping to stave off the grayness. Knowing that I will be sitting at my desk, all day, on a wooden chair, staring at the monitor or alternatly at a pile of papers that may make some sense to the accountant, but never to me; has not elevated my spirits. Even the cats are pacing around. The promise of spring may be here, but the color is that of Mud season. On a good day, I'd haul out bins of stashed yarn and start poking around to choose a new project. But, this is tax day and I'm way behind. As a reward to staying put at the desk, I'm going to go blogging every now and again. Distractions that keep me here can't hurt. Margene posted a picture of herself wearing Blaze. She looks absolutely beautiful in it. I'm really tempted. It's a project I started last winter, then frogged. My choice of wool / alpaca was too heavy for my taste, espcially with the short sleeves. I pulled out a couple of unfinished projects that were lounging in my many knitting bags in the den. I was figuring on working on them first. Damnation, those bins are all stacked behind me, sirens calling out.. pick me, just open the lid and look for a minute... by the end of the day, I'll need to be tied to the chair.
Part 2.. end of daylight..
As the day progressed, so did the rainfall.. two inches already and a possible 2" more tonight. By evening I am still sitting in exactly the same place, having left it only to make tea and go to the diner for lunch. Lucky for me, as I opened the front door, there on the porch, in the pouring rain... stupid DHL man never even rang the bell, just dumped my package and ran.. but anyway, there was a package from Betsy. THAT was a nice surprise. In it were these..
The other really good thing, the diner was having turkey dinner with all the good stuff.. $5.25. I won't have to cook dinner tonight.
