Yesterday was good. I wish I would have taken more pictures though. Renee and I arrived at Kerry’s place at the same time.
John Kerry still hadn’t given his concession speech, so we watched that together. We did not, however, watch Bush’s victory speech. Still too soon to do that.
Lunch was fab. I brought a bunch of good stuff to round out Renee’s excellent bread, and Kerry’s fabulous soup.
The dogs were being their normal doggie selves. Here is Crockett and Oakley’s struggle for bone domination.
Crockett sounds very fierce – growls like a mad dog and Oakley just stands there hanging on calmly, not budging. She always wins. Not to leave the kitties out of the pics, here is a cute shot of Owen. He has a perfect seat to perch and look out at the world.
I didn’t get a shot of Renee or the food or the knitting – dang! I did manage to get Kerry to pose with one of her new finished projects, this beautiful lace poncho.
I got a bit of knitting done, but when I got home decided I didn’t like it so I ripped it out. My spinning was good though, and now I have an almost full bobbin of dark purply-blue. Lots more to spin though, I will need to wind off the 2 full bobbins of pb/white mix. I don’t want to ply those because the plan is to have the pb/white mix plyed to itself, plyed to the pb solid, and then plyed to the solid white, then the solid pb to the solid white, and to itself, and then the solid white to solid white. After that I will use my freed-up time and brain space to work on world peace. Ah heck, I can do that while I am spinning and knitting – I will have to find something else to do then.
And so I end this post to share with you that sharing with friends is always a good thing. I arrived at home still a bit sad, but mostly refreshed. I am also full of new ideas and some exciting plans. Life is still pretty good and I am not a big fan of whining or whiners, especially if it is me.
Peace and LOVE to you today.
