From the first flying fig of morning, this Friday has only been Wednesday.

A to Z, D


Drape closing time of the day. Daytime is ending with a beautiful sunset. Unfortunately, the pinks and reds my eyes saw, don’t show up for the picture. Darn!

I didn’t take a walk today. It was so cold and the wind was blowing hard. I hate to admit it but I missed doing it. I am watching a lot of YouTubes about Keto and Doctor Jason Fung, Intermittent Fasting. They are helping me see more things I can do to get healthier. I don’t want to claim the word Diabetes for a D word, but can’t get away from it!

By the way, the dog isn’t happy with today either. Not only is she so depressed she is sleeping, she seemed to pull that picture out of focus. (Hehe)

Daily editing for CampNaNo still happened. 9592 words went through Grammarly and I fixed a few of the mistakes. I am still happy with the story and can’t wait to get my series out into the world. I hope my appointment with the doctor tomorrow will help me with my vision issues.

I am back in the crazies of What Day Is It Anyway? And only just now did I realize that this is Monday and once again I missed my writing group. I guess I need to start putting DATES on my calendar that I want to be aware of. Now that I have more going on in my life I may need to keep a diary again!

What Day Is It Anyway?


Remember when we were playing that game at the beginning of the lockdown? Yeah. Somehow I have entered back into it. I stopped my brother from taking the trash out to the curb. “Hey, what are you doing? It’s only Wednesday!” We argued and he backed down. Hey. I would know. I hadn’t done a One-Liner so Wednesday didn’t happen.

Then a commercial for Grey’s Anatomy came on saying ‘tonight…’. The news was on and it said, Thursday down in the corner. What??? So I had to apologize to my brother and go grab the trash from my bedroom and bathroom. Where did the week go?

And how did it get to be almost tomorrow?

Well, it was a fun day. my friend and I are making a sort of creativity class from Felicia Day’s book, Embrace Your Weird. I have the Audible version and she has the book. We do the little exercises together and the bigger ones we do as ‘homework’. It is really challenging me. I am using a separate journal to do the work in and I feel I’m finding some of the blocks I have put up against the parts of me that want to express. And it is fun. I highly suggest finding and playing with this book.

Okay, I had better post this as I am getting distracted and don’t want midnight to surprise me again.

You know the week is crazy when you wake up on Wednesday but KNOW it is Saturday.

 

My husband got one cataract removed Monday. So yes, a lot of stress for a ten-minute operation that makes a big difference in his life. For me, it is just the stress and not the wonderful visual acuity. And how would I know the difference of days? Retired. Bingeing Netflix. No cartoons on Saturday. I just thought the feeling was a Saturday feeling. Maybe this fits with the What Day Is It Anyway? prompt? By the way, he’s fine and now can’t wait to get the other eye done.

One-liner Wednesday is one of the best prompts out there. Thank you, Linda!


 

You mean it’s Wednesday and not Sunday?

Yeah, my actual words this morning. I was getting ready to find Sunday Morning to watch. I didn’t see it in the line up. This tooth/bladder infection and COVID19 craziness has really messed with my mind!

Thank you, Linda, for  fun, and easy prompts like One-liner Wednesday and #WDIIA

What Day Is It Anyway?


Another quick one. I think it is Thursday but the heat and tooth have me wondering. I am on an antibiotic and the pain killer. I am feeling better but still not quite energetic enough to care. The joyful spot is I have a friend visiting today. 6′ and masks. No hugging. But lots of fun and chatting that help me forget the bad and the day.

I promise by the weekend I will catch up on as many blogs as I can.

I miss you all!


Though I lost the day and forgot what day it was many times today, I am happy to report that Trash Day and Friendship Zoom Day brought me back. I was beginning to wonder as the garbage truck usually gets here before eleven. And since we lost track of days last week there were a lot of bags out there. Thank goodness it was just later than usual.

Okay, good. It is Friday.

Zooming with friends is the best, isn’t it? I think we laughed so much that we made up for all the horrid stuff going on lately. Hours and hours! And near the end, a bright surprise. My son called.

Don’t you love talking to offspring that are grown up and make you so proud to know them? Well, I do.

So that answers the question, What Day Is It Anyway? But who can tell? Just about the time you think you know it isn’t what you thought. #WDIIA


Nothing good can happen until you get through the wrapper. At least Wednesday has that one-liner ease to get you over the hump. But Tuesday makes you work at it!

Still, we managed. I started watching season three of Outlander.

Until the male grumblings around me. So I decided to get us all watching Mandalorian. I have to admit to being bored most of the time. I like the Star part of this series. I hate the War part. And this was 99% male. Ugh! Mid-series, they added a woman and a girl and a few more females. But I was so not into it by then. I am happy to see Bryce is one of the directors and her episode was great. But not worth keeping Disney Plus.

 

I guess I need to take the stab at reviewing the only reason we decided to try. Hamilton. Sorry, everyone who loved this. To me, the most boring musical ever written. I just quit halfway through. It did seem the same ennui I felt trying to read the biography. Bloviating males. very few females. Disney knows nothing, John Snow knew more!

Please don’t write to me about how wrong you think I am. I’m being honest. I did my best to like these two shows but I found myself getting up and washing dishes or taking a walk outside. I want depth and I want to have my imagination working with the show. Outlander, even on my third watching of the Netflix three seasons still holds my imagination. My what-ifs keep going long after the show. How would I write it? How did the author decide to do that? What if the director had filmed it this way? And the music flows with me long after I turn it off.

Meanwhile, hat number two is nearly halfway done.

So that was Tuesday, answering the ‘What Day Is It Anyway?’ question. #WDIIA


Where Did the Day Go?

 

My first hat on the Flexee Loom. Just off the loom.

I used this method of decrease for the crown of the hat:

But with the Flexee loom, I could decrease further. I started with 80 pegs as the instruction for an adult hat on the enclosed page. I think that I should have made a few more rows to fit my size adult but I was anxious to see how it would work. So I did all the decreases per the video then moved the loops around to remove links of two every other grouping. In the first case, it was all the lighter color links. Then I did the decreases from the beginning with the video again. Again, at the end, I move the stitches around so as to remove every other link. I followed the video one more time and this time finished as Kristen suggests. I love how the crown looks.

Ah, look at the time! I think we are heading for Monday. I barely remember watching Sunday Morning.  Hence the answer to #WDIIA and #WTIIA.


Friday

But it wasn’t apparent at first. It was after lunch when we realized the trash hadn’t made it out to the curb. Oops!

Anyway, I had to share the daughter and boyfriend’s socks on their feet.

From this, you can see what a cute couple they are!

But the current finished project was this pair of slipper socks. They are headed to the charity, Hat Huggers.

There was enough yarn leftover that I have started a smaller pair of anklet slippers. I hope I have enough to finish that project.

I took pics of the Flexeeloom as I am making a hat for an adult. I know it seems weird to have a loom that wriggles around, but it is light and sturdy and I love working with it. Working the two-by-two ribbing is tedious on most looms and can actually hurt my hands. This loom is like working with butter.

As you can see I can wad it up or stretch it out and the stitches stay on the pegs and the work is fast and easy. Here is where I left off today.

This is the underside.

This is from the top.

Oh, look at the time! It is nearly tomorrow! S0 this concludes #WDIIA and #WTIIA Friday edition.
