I used the word soggy in my last post title, so needed to come up with a different word to describe this very wet day. Sunless seems inadequate, but I can't seem to come up with anything better. You know how it's hard to think when you have a cold? The same thing happens to me when it's a rainy grey day. My brain seizes up.
This has been a busy week. On Wednesday I met up with Lynne the Sock Lady. We had a great visit, and I even won a free coffee in the Roll the Rim to Win game. For those of you who haven't experienced going to a Tim Horton's donut shop, during the Roll the Rim to Win contest you roll the top rim of your paper tea/coffee cup and hope to see the name of a prize hidden there. I rarely go to Tim's so I gave my winning cup to Lynne. If it had said Toyota Camry or $5000 Visa prepaid card I might not have been as generous.
Thursday I met with my friend Cindy in Langley. We did some shopping together, then went to her daughter's home (she and her husband were there for a visit) and played a game of Sequence. It was a great game, and one I think I will add to our family collection.
Then Friday Rebekah came for a visit. She flew into Bellingham, Washington, which is a bit closer and a whole lot cheaper than flying into Vancouver. This is the first time I have picked someone up in Bellingham and had everything go as planned. It was even a dry, warm day on Friday. On the drive home, about a half hour from where we live, there was a field of daffodils. I couldn't resist stopping to get a picture.
When we got here Rebekah needed to borrow some 5.0 mm knitting needles for a project she wanted to start. We went up to my small craft room to find them, but there didn't seem to be any in the bag of needle packets. There was, however, an empty Hiya Hiya packet for that size. This was bad news. It meant the needles were "in the wild." I dug further down in my basket to pull up the rogue needles, which, I must confess, slightly resembled a curled up mass of snakes hibernating for the winter. At that point Rebekah gasped. Then she started laughing.
Thanks to her great organizational skills my circular needles are now all sorted. The weird thing is those 5.0 mm needles never showed up. They must be attached to some UFO (unfinished object), which is where they are going to stay for the time being. Given Rebekah's reaction to my knitting needle jumble, I think its best to leave the stash undisturbed.
