Finishing Friday

Two pairs are nearly finished. I would guess this greyish brown pair will be done tomorrow. Yay!

Eight more rounds of ribbing and these will be done. Maybe Sunday?
These are weeks from being finished.
These might be a week or so from hot off the looms.
I know, not related to knitting but our weird dark cloudy days had the hay barn in a glow. It looked like angels were singing! I know, I’m a dork. It’s the little things, right? This was a couple days ago

Memorial Day

This says it all, includes so many…

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!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “starts with mono.” Find a word that starts with “mono” and use it in your post. Enjoy!

Mono Lake is one of the most enchanting places on Earth. On a solo drive from Southern California to Reno it captured my imagination during a rest stop at sunset. I wish I had taken pictures. The tufa looked like fairy castles and the little flies were the fae. Please click on the underlined Mono to see a bit of wonder. As I pulled into the scenic view “Time to Say Goodbye” was playing on my Camry’s CD player.

My favorite song, I think.

Here’s another view of Mono Lake:

Be glad I chose not to tell you about my non-kissed mononucleosis. The lake is far cheerier !🤪

Finished Friday

Yay! Son and SO made it to my house! Finished his socks!

Here is the YouTube I followed loosely.

She makes it easy!

I used Knitters’Pride Royale Circular Needles 40″ size 6 (I think–I’m not in the same room as the needles right now.) The yarn was a bulky superwash wool. I think these turned out too big. But I think they’ll shrink. They will be warm slippers.

Oh, and I discovered a cool bind-off.

Just a quick personal note. Knitters’Pride Royale Circular Needles are harder for me to work with than ChiaoGoo red-lace circular needles.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 26th 2023, is “family.” Use the word “family” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Family. Probably the biggest blessing of my life. And that includes immediate, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and my non-blood family, friends.

Sure, there have been tough times. But overall I feel richer in love and life for every one of them!

And most oftentimes I find love for the humankind family. Most of you fit in that category. We’re all spinning in space together, fam.

Just Jot it January 2023, and it’s brought to you by Carol Anne. Thank you, Carol Anne! Please be sure to visit Carol Anne’s blog to read her post and say hello. And follow her while you’re there, if you’re not already.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 15th 2023, is “gratitude.” Use the word “gratitude” any way you’d like. Have fun!

Gratitude grows with age. At least it has for me. From the days of birthing babies until they grew into wonderful adults that feeling of lucky and blessed has grown with them.

Now having just turned 73, I find so much in every hour to be grateful for. I think I’m most thankful that I am still learning every day. But health seems to be growing and my life is full of love. What more could one want?
