Sunny Friday

I went in to the office today expecting to take a half day.  I planned to finish my duties in the morning and head home to get some cleaning done in my craft room.  My tasks were done in plenty of time so I got to start my weekend a bit early.  The sun was shining brightly and it was so nice that I forgot my jacket at work.

I got on the highway and headed east toward my house.  Up ahead of me I saw something so odd I had to catch up to it to be sure I saw what I thought I saw.  Strangely enough, it was an airplane wing being hauled by semi truck with probably the largest trailer bed I've ever seen.  I bet you've never seen an airplane wing going down the highway!

I stopped at Macy's to pay my bill and went home to knit for a bit before I planned to start my clean up project.  Kevin came home and persuaded me (ok, it wasn't that hard) to go across the street with him to our widow neighbor Jessica's house to help her rake her leaves.  Jessica is 86 and moves around well enough but I know she has bad knees and I worry about her.  It took us less than an hour to clean up her backyard but it would have easily taken her a day or two.

By the time that was completed I had lost interest in cleaning my craft room and continued knitting instead.  I finished the second of two camo mitts and started on a new pair of the sterling silver glitz mitts.  Once it got to be too dark I switched to a Republic hat and cast on using another skein from Stonehedge Fiber Mills, in a rich chocolate brown shade.  Pics coming tomorrow.

I'm waffling over whether to drive out to Brighton tomorrow for rug hooking group.  I need to get hooking on Holly & Mike's rug and that's the motivation I need.  Otherwise I'll probably putz around, maybe clean up my craft room.  Or not.  That's it...I'm going to Brighton tomorrow.  In the afternoon I'll probably head over to Right off the Sheep for an all day knit-a-thon.  Ann's raising money for Lighthouse of Northern Oakland County.  They supply all sorts of things for down and out people, something our area has a plethora of right now.

For now I'm going to gather up my rug hooking supplies so I'm ready to go in the morning.  The bag is buried under piles of yarn.  So much yarn, so little time.
