Finishing Friday

Finished! Ready to mail. Cotton mix. With enough leftover that I started another pair of socks.
Starting the new pair with a Turkish cast-on.
Right more rows of Continental worked ribbing. I think these bamboo yarn socks will be done by next Friday.
Just keep my hands busy with the looms. Somehow I like working with ChiaoGoo Red-lace Circular Needles, Toe-up Two At A Time Socks with Turkish cast-on, Fleegle Heel, mostly knitting right-handed, Ribbing Continental,and Jenny’s stretchy cast-off. But if my hands tire of knitting the Flexee Fine Gauge starting with the Kitchener cast-on for dif.
Because these are finer gauge needles and yarn, my hands don’t enjoy working on this pair as much. But I do like the colors and how soft the yarn and material feels.

Thank you, Chris!❤️

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “left alone.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Left alone, to my own devices… starts my stream. Is that the saying? Are we talking cellphones and laptops or is ‘devices’ even the word being used? Yep. That’s the word. But it doesn’t seem to be alluding to our electronics.

What it is about means more to those of us with ADD/ADHD. We can, whether left alone or not, get into a lot of trouble.

Take for instance, me, nine-months pregnant with my second baby. My first husband was away on a work assignment. I loved rearranging my furniture. With nesting bug setting in, it was worse. With carpeting, the full entertainment center should slide where I need it to. Not.

Suddenly the center snagged and tilted. The heavy TV threatened to fall off. One hand balanced the top shelf, the other held up the television. One foot holding the center in place. So I only had one foot. I angled it between the free wall that separated the living room from the kitchen and then I managed to grab the phone (no cellphone back then) with my toes. I pushed the buttons of the friends who lived nearby with my toes.

Though it seemed like hours of balancing, it had to have been less than five minutes. I think my oldest was still down for his nap when my friend tapped on the door. He came in when I loud-whispered, “Come in.”

I received the lecture about doing such things without another person around, especially when pregnant, as my friend rescued the TV and moved everything where I wanted it. He was like a second dad. He and his wife were such good friends to us. So he knew I would probably not hear the speech, but he felt obligated to give it anyway.

We both knew my husband wouldn’t even notice the new arrangement. And we both knew I’d do it again if left alone to my own devices.

Moms multitask, even 9 months pregnant, especially left alone.

Time Keeping Tuesday

Per Linda: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “sink/sank/sunk.” Use one, use two, or use ’em all and get bonus points. Enjoy!

You would think by now it would sink in: Daytime naps don’t help ease insomnia. Yet, when I’m tired and hurty during the day, that bed calls to me. I snuggle into the covers and soon find I’ve sunk into dreamland. I sleep so much better during the day. I keep the television on providing just enough distraction to slip right into a layer of the linen life. Sometimes I wake and find a valley in the bedding where my body sank in.

I don’t like being stuck in this habit so I plan to sleep with the Kindle Fire playing favorites from Netflix. Hopefully, I will see a more awake face tomorrow in the mirror above the bathroom sink.

Simple Sunday

Velcro is too loud, but slip on Skechers do the job!

Thanks, Yvensong.

Per Linda:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “stick.” Use it as a noun or a verb; use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

It’s Yoda in the sky and I’m sticking to it!

Sticking to something is supposed to be a good thing. Yet sticking it to someone is bad. We sure are inconsistent with our language, don’t your think? 🤪

We’re enjoying our bike. We take turns and are surprised by how far we can go and stay in one spot. I hope we can stick to this new habit. My husband is far happier than he was with the treadmill. His arthritis is worse than mine so he needs low impact exercise. I’ll stick to walks a few days a week, then ride for miles in the living room.

Now for my other habits I need to grow or kill. And make it stick…

Yes, I plan on using my walking sticks.

Thus Thursday

Though we got the indoor bike delivered late yesterday, we didn’t take it out of the box until today.

Outside of the moment it all went well. Then we couldn’t figure out why the seat had four holes for screws while the metal brace part had three holes. What? The four holes in the shape of a square did not line up with the three in the shape of a triangle.

I say ‘we,’ but Chris did the physical building, I just worried and supervised.

Then he saw the actual seat with the triangle holes and realized that other bit was the back rest. Whew!

All in all, it took a couple hours. Chris took his ride first. Then I did a couple miles in my living room. Since we didn’t take our walk today, I pictured our half mile turn around, so quickly arrived and repeated in my head. Imagine how far a mile would happen on a real bike!

When not in use it goes in my Dabbling Den. Yeah, another thing to block the piano. But on the right side the diamond painting area is not being used right now. The whole area needs a makeover.

Luckily, the wheels on the bike make it easy to move around.

I meant to mention that box of yarn tucked in under the keyboard of the piano.  Yay! Yarn!
From the driver’s seat, the front of the bike. Yes, that is Rosey’s food dish.

I’m happy to have the bike today. It was hot and humid. Then we had thunder storms. But that left a phenomenal sunset. Sorry it isn’t even close to what I saw.

Happy Thursday!

To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk. –Thomas A. Edison

Boy have I got both! <— If I could figure out how, I’d strike-through this. It ruins the One-Liner rule. Pretend like you didn’t see this second part. 😉

Thank you, Linda, for this fun prompt. One-Liner Wednesday
