Monday through Wednesday of this week was a mixed bag of assorted frustrating nonsense at the office, and I was exceedingly happy to see the end of it! Yesterday I did some much-needed housework (the dustbunnies had taken over!) and was pretty worn down at the end of the day. This morning I did a bit more household drudgery but let the gadgetry do most of the work this time.
I tossed a load of laundry in the washer, then started the dishwasher, then turned Roomba loose to do the vacuuming. While the gadgets worked away, I treated myself to a half-hour on the deck with a cup of coffee and my knitting. Such a treat!
I'd been knitting a scarf based on a stitch I found in my stitch dictionary ("Cells", it was called) which was working up into a lovely, honeycomb-like pattern. Unfortunately, it was working up in a double-thick fabric which was lovely but probably too thick to be comfortable as a scarf. So, I ripped it out and have now started a different stitch called Diamond Brocade. We'll see if that works out better. I hope.
Currently, I'm waiting for a call from the Salvation Army. They're sending a truck sometime today to pick up a large (27") portable television set I'm donating. It's still a good set, but I've replaced it with a much lighter flatscreen.
I'm actually more excited about the flatscreen than I expected. I love having all my usual stuff (DVD/VCR combo, TiVo, and Nintendo Wii) PLUS my computer hooked up to the television set. Very convenient!
I hope the Salvation Army calls soon....I had a very filling lunch (red beans and rice) and I find that I'm getting unbelievably sleepy. I'm sure if I doze off for a nap, they'll call just about the time I fall asleep. Or maybe not. The phone will wake me, so maybe I'll just give up and snooze a bit. :-)
Have a safe and restful Labor Day Weekend, everyone!
