just my yarn

...Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things...

feeling like a big city gal.

OMG-I rode Metrolink to work today! So fun. I sat there and looked out the window and knitted and got to work 20 minutes early and didn't use any gas or swear at my fellow man or wear down the brakes on my car or pollute the air- So thanks Wash U. for this free pass. I will be doing this on a regular basis.

all i can say is-

it's not like i'm a rock star or a politician or anything on the tour bus running from state to state- but you know, the whole calendar for september and october every weekend even almost every week night (starting to get apoplectic over these talks i have to give- three of them!) is full...i think really until november 8. last night i went to bed at 5:30 and got up at 2 AM- so i've been potting around for hours already-cleaning out the yarn basket, knitting, watching steam cleaners on the shopping channel ( i think i need one of those!) emptying the dishwasher, blah blah, blah-then i started planning the big move how i am definitely going to downsize after kelly graduates hs- no yard, no roof, no nothing- just a bed and kraft stuff. then i think (too much) if this is what i have to worry about- i'm pretty darn lucky- but still...holy moly.

a few things.

sometimes i am just amazed how things can be staring me right in the face and i just don't see them. or how i always pick the hardest way to do something- not just once but for years...lord! and jeez louise. i always think i am so smart and sometimes i actually am but sometimes i have these moments where i am just looking at myself thinking, huh? so anyway, i got up at 3 and realized- holy moly, i gotta clean the kraft kave aka emily's old room as she is actually coming home tonite. that is number one. i thought i had an extra day in there. and the other thing is i started putting all my images in a binder- thanks to cathy flesher. i had everything jammed into this folder and everytime i needed something i would root thru, reopen the poor cuticles and miss half the stuff. so i am at this transfer class on saturday and there's cathy with her binder and everything is in sleeves and she is just flipping thru her photos like a dream...that is number two and here is something else. that class was so great. i went home with all the stuff and finished the book or you know whatever finished is and it was so fun! and i learned so much. and here is the other thing- so, every day i am calming people down that they are not going crazy and that they are not catching it and getting alzheimer's, but i have to tell you, the minute it is me, the minute i have one word finding difficulty...i am sure that it is the end. why is that? and within this paragraph lie the dangers of getting up at 3!

it's a white world.

in more ways than one. have all the kraft krud strewn out all over the floor. it's shirlene's 65th birthday and i can't find one single image of a black woman in my stash to make her something out of. i'm combing the artchix and red lead collage sheet things and at the very bottom of one sheet there is a teeny tiny like 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch picture of a black child that i can barely make out- and that is it. it may not even be a half inch square. what gives? does anyone have any images of black folks? i have two great books- one is called "crowns" and the other is called "the face of our past" so i suppose ill be slapping these on the copier. i feel a little ashamed.
