I’m at Panera typing on my iPhone waiting for my Yarn Whisperer to show up and help me get over a particularly vexing set of instructions for a current project I’m working on. I bet she’s all kinds of wishing she’d never taught me how to knit in the first place. On the bright side, I’m buying coffee, so maybe that’ll soften the blow of having to deal with my incompetence.
Picking up my knitting needles today is a reward for having done six loads of laundry and vacuuming out my onion drawer yesterday.
Those are words I never thought I’d type.
I keep garlic, shallots, and onions in one of my cabinet drawers and over time the skins fall off and before you know it, I’m digging through two inches of dried peely paper just looking for a clove of garlic for my supper.
I hauled out the vacuum cleaner to suck everything up and ended up spending twenty minutes unclogging the hose with the pointy end of a shish kebab skewer because apparently there were rogue cloves hiding in the paper skins and they got stuck halfway down the tube.
I’m sure there’s a moral to this story, but Amy is pulling up in the parking lot and I’ve got to go.
I hope your day holds more excitement than vacuuming your drawers.
Have a nice day.
