Work keeps getting in the way of blog posting, knitting, and general all-around enjoyment of life. If there is anyone out there who is looking for a way to spend their money, I’ve got enough yarn to keep me in knitting heaven for about a year or so. All I would need is financial support to make the house payments, keep food on the table and a little gas in the car. Perhaps an occasional vacation. Maybe a new pair of jeans. I think I could live on $30,000 a year. Can you spare it?
What? No takers? Seriously now. Just think how good it would make you feel to allow me to enjoy life without work for an entire year.
Just as I suspected. No one rushing in. Hmmm. I guess I’ll just carry on here. Knitting in between working, sleeping and eating. Speaking of which, I got the greatest new yarn for my next sweater project at Eat.Sleep.Knit. Fun store. Nice people.
Meanwhile, I’ve settled on the pattern contest. I had an unfortunate incident the day I last posted. In fact, just moments after I signed off the computer and hopped in the car to pick up our little Opal at the vet (she got fixed–not that she was broken) I was face-to-face with a sad animal situation. I don’t want to go into detail because I hate bumming people out with sad animal stories. In a nutshell, it involved another driver, a stray dog, and an emergency vet call.
Opal is OK. It wasn’t her. Thank goodness! But, the whole thing suggested to me that this contest needs to be about taking care of our animal friends. So, I’ll post the “official” rules tomorrow if I get a break from work.
Until then, a happy animal picture:
Yep, it’s the two kit fox who live in our quonset hut out playing in the horse coral. Cute little guys.
