Day 4 Staycation or should we say NIGHT 4?
Staycation yesterday involved more ONE ROW lace knitting. This is the spongey softest yarn I have ever worked with. It is a sock yarn and I lost the label. ( Happy toes? Happy Feet? Big Foot? Hodag.... I can't think of it right now) I made a mistake a few rows back, but I think I'm leaving it. Can't decide....might start over....what do you think?
Staycation also involved hair do highlights at the Beauty Shop. I go to a Beauty shop not a SALON. Old ladies go there who really care about their hair doo's. They just do hair. I didn't want to sit still long enough to have my hair dried and styled. I left with wet locks, but they are blonde now...and it cut the price of the visit in half.
Staycation meant going to my neighbor's garden as they are on VACATION , and watering. The bonus here is I get good ideas for my garden, AND all the ripe raspberries I can find and pick. I watered and watered because we are so very dry here in Chicago land this summer.
Staycation meant finding another neighbor's keys when they locked themselves out last night. Felt like a hero for practically nothing yesterday!
Staycation meant watering my own garden and finding a big surprise. We have an unplanted tomato plant growing by the shed. Yippee . It has blossoms on it already. I LOVE stragglers who reseed themselves. We also have a begonia that came back from last years annuals....Kind of odd. Yet, it is there.
Staycation meant using Peadpod yesterday. I just couldn't stand the grocery store. Sometimes PeaPod is a necessity, sometimes an indulgence. It was definitely the latter yesterday. I'm waiting for the driver now to deliver my groceries.
On a side note, both adult kids are moving in for a very short time this month. I sent them a flyer titled: CAMP HOMEIFYOUCANSTANDIT. It was a joke. I listed the QUIET HOURS at camp. 1-3 of course, my nap times. I asked they give me arrival and departure dates. I said we'd ring the dinner bell nightly. I said I'd honor special dietary requests. I feel like Kate from the Shady Rest of Petticoat Junction. I would have left a mint on Al's pillow last night, but Helo would have eaten it...
