Today there is too much to do. I've already written one thousand words on Earth Bound and want to get at least another thousand in. I need 13,000 and change to be where I am supposed to be! Argghh!
I have started knitting a hat for my step-dot from a pattern! Gadzooks! I feel the same way about knitting patterns that I did about going to school - just give me the basics and leave me be! But it is good for my brain and also - it does look good and I have to say that it is heartening knowing that if I just follow the damn instructions it has a good chance of looking like the picture AND fitting her head.
I wanted to try and sort out the garden and yard but it is a cold drizzle outside and unless that changes - I ain't gonna go there. I have to walk the dog - probably not in the woods but we'll see.
Our dear bud, Annie, is coming for a family dinner. We call it a 'family dinner' because there won't be anything high falutin about it. Potatoes and onions cooked with a smoked fish from Ron, fresh fresh haddock lightly fried in butter from me, maybe a ratouille (yep I still have zukes to eat) and the gang minus me can have ice cream with boozey fruit on top. Yum Yum! Jake isn't here yet - it has been nice to have the girly-girl on her own but I'm anxious to see how he survived the flu. He'll be here tomorrow.
So dear readers - when you feel overwhelmed with what you should do and what you will do - well, what do you do? I wish I had a house boss right now. She'd say, "Walk the dog at least Morrison! And rake that mess in front drizzle or no drizzle. What a sight!"
And I'd probably tell her to take a leap so there ya go.
