Tomorrow the fabulous April and I will be at Guerin Prep High School for their Craft Show. This show has been going on for thirty years though this is our second year. Last year was not a great year for us – I broke even. This year I will be doing just hats and scarves – the same for the second at the Modly Chic Swap – details to come – and saving the afghans for the December Pleasant Home Holiday Shoppe.
I know this weather will turn at any moment. Right now, it’s early October weather but we are in late October. I predicted we would have snow in October and I would have been right if we were in Denver. My brother tells me the weather isn’t all that bad out there but it seems to be a feast or famine experience and they eat a lot in Denver. So that’s a place to visit when the Cubs play the Rockies but I won’t be looking for a permanent residence there. Though I hear good things about Colorado Springs and their moderate weather. Overall, I think I’d like a place with three seasons, one of them not being winter.
You haven’t seen this cowl, have you? I don’t mean to say that like it’s missing – I mean to say it like I haven’t shown this to you. It reminds me of Cleopatra – don’t ask me why. You should know better than to ask me why. It reminds me of Cleopatra so I named it the Cleo when I put it up for sale in the shop. I have such expectations when something goes up in the shop. I think to myself folks will find it and the next time I look, it will be sold and there will be a note left that someone else wanted it and couldn’t find it.
That has never happened.
Today will find me logging in the items that will be going to the sale, mailing off a hat I finished and the afghan off to China and hopefully doing some writing. I’ve missed writing. I will also work on the poncho that needs to be done.
I hope you have a great weekend. I’ve missed you. It’s my own doing and my own fault. You know how I get. This weekend the might be the last decent weekend we get for the next twelve to sixteen weeks so enjoy them – of course, if you’re in one of those places that has three seasons, one of them not being winter, you’re probably good to go all year long. I still want you to enjoy your weekend. You should, in fact, insist that you enjoy yourselves. Think of it as the ‘clean your plate’ theory but with weather. You have to clean your plate because there are starving children in (fill in the blank.) You should enjoy your good weather because there are people in places with four seasons, one of them being winter. Now, go put on a sweater; I’m chilly.
