Day 109, November 11, 2016 @6:18 pm
Another gorgeous sunny November day after all the grey days in October. I have to be grateful. I am. I am just a little irritable and at loose ends. That’s what happens when you have a late evening and missing a few hours of early sleep. It’s a sign that I’m not a young pup any more. My body is not quite as flexible and forgiving. But the company and conversations were worth it.
I languished on my love seat, soaking up the sun. In the afternoon, I packed up Sheba and headed off to the dog park. Everybody and their dog did the same thing. Cars lined up and out. Dogs and their people galore. It was not a peaceful, joyous outing for me. I tried my best but packs of dogs and people make for trouble. I got the heck out of there after one loop around .
I was not brave today. I did not tackle another Pandora’s Box. I rested my nerves, gathering up odd balls of yarn I found yesterday. Why don’t I knit them up into a blanket? A voice in my head said. Knit one, purl one. The sound and rhythm of knitting needles would soothe and smooth me. All the odd balls would be knitted into one funky multi coloured blanket. Why had I not thought of it before? Let’s do it. Let’s knit life’s loose ends into a rainbow.
