Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


I enjoyed reading your posts so much. You are an excellent communicator. Its a comfort to look into the lives of others and find common ground, small delights, and the honesty to express them. I found that in your posts ........I am impressed with your site format also. I have the free blogspot and really like it, although I am lacking the knowledge to put things in the sidebar as others do. Hopefully I can learn as I go. Any suggestions welcome. Well, on this lanquid summer day I am as busy as a grasshopper and must hop on down to the ironing board. Thanks for the good read, I'll visit here again. Come visit my blog if you've time. "Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments." Psalm 119:73 Happy day to you.

So, guess who leaves for Creative Strands today. And guess who is so darn homesick she wants to cry. Especially when she heard that LD&GF are bringing a bushel of crabs over Friday night.

What is it about a pending fun trip that twists my stomach with misery? I always have a grand time - especially these fiber trips. But the 24 hours before leaving are the absolute worst for me. Just plain misery. You’d think I'd have outgrown this by now. But since I obviously haven't I can only adjust around it.

The double booking/weather issue has been prepared for as best as possible. I am doing my dry dance to add good fortune to contingency planning. So, all would be set for waltzing off the job without a care for a few days, only... we have a jerk who has figured out how to circumvent the filters on the internet computers and he's viewing porn sites in violation of the agreement he signed promising not to do so. He's a sulky nasty boy who tends to wait till my youngest and most nervous staff member is on duty to come in. Since I have already given him a stern warning, he sort of lays low when I'm around - wanders in, lingers a bit, then wanders out. I've written out detailed steps for all my employees to take, should they catch him viewing porn and also told them to do nothing if the situation upsets them. He already thinks he's able to break the rules. He'll break them when I'm on duty soon enough. And I'm not the least bit shy about confronting that sort. In fact, it would be a pleasure. I'm a mom - and to some degree feel quite maternal towards my staff. And you don't want to mess with Bess' children.

The car needs a part before I can take it out of town, so my first project today will be to stop by the mechanic's. I have one other appointment before I can head off. I ought to be at Jen's by 1 or 1:30. Be back sometime Sunday night but I am sure I shan't post till Monday a.m. TA and sweet weekend knitting.
