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


The worst thing for me, is that the start of DST is coinciding with the start of the spring tree pollen season.

So not only am I tired from losing an hour of sleep (and having to get up in the dark), I'm tired from allergies. And cranky. And not wanting to work.

Hope the shock of DST wears off soon. I don't like getting up earlier, but I do like having a little more golden sunlight left at the end of the day. Thought I should let you know that I mentioned you on today's post. Hope that's OK.

Having DST this early here means that once again, I get up in the dark. I was just beginning to enjoy getting up at dawn, when They took it away. We still have snow here, so it's no real use to farmers...sigh.

I HATE Daylight Savings Time

I see most of my friends are also suffering from hideous, horrible, weee can mek you betterrrrrr, socially engineered day light savings time. Most of the folk I love to read have not posted since Sunday, and while some I am sure have legitimate reasons along with this suck-o messin' with your mind – I lay the bulk of the blame on springing forward into world wide jet lag.

Well. Where did Hunk-Ra come from?

Happily, it is hump day and I got something difficult and important done yesterday. I have many more difficult and important tasks to do at work between now and October. We're doing a 100% overhaul of all technology at the library, from Internet connectivity to furniture to web page to staff education. Sometimes it weighs on me, but other times we soar through surprising issues like pros.

At heart I love technology – which is the closest I think most of us will ever come to magic. But I struggle with its sophomoric constant change. Change = Progress is much like the artistic trap of Different = Creativity. Neither are true. It only looks like it is the same from the outside. Creativity contains the different. Progress contains change, it doesn't equal it. Within each there is discipline, structure and an organic reason for movement.

Oooo – in true ENFP fashion, lemme jerk you over to look at something that is creative and unique and beautiful. Check out the needle art on this blog!

And here are some photos of stash enhancement from TheCastle including some birthday socks
that I've ripped out already – cast on too many stitches. It's KnitPicks superwash which is a very soft yarn. Not sure I would use it again unless it was for bed socks. I'll be interested to see how well it holds up. There is nylon in it. But I like a bit of scrunch in my sock yarns. A tighter twist and a sturdier feeling wool. This would make great baby sweaters, though. Oooo. And baby blankets.

These will be cabled socks for moi.

These are intended for more clutches – either as kits for students or as gifts at Christmas. One green one will be mine – for springtime – once the birthday socks are done.

Happy Hump Day
