Today I had a lunch date, and I have to say, it was different.
There were FOUR of us.
A, M, J, and me.
A knew M and J, but not me.
M knew A and me, but not J.
J knew A and me, but not M.
I knew M and J, but not A.
Are you with me???
So, here's where it got weird. In any one conversation, someone was totally clueless. Unless we talked about global warming.
I knew better than to talk about politics.
When I said "knew", I mean that there was history.
But there were blanks, between those who did not have history.
How did I get myself into this???
OK, lunch was good, and we got through it. But all the way home, I was muttering to myself, "why, why, why?"
I may becoming a hermit. Well, ok, I didn't have far to go. But it feels good, what can I say.
In a world where so much does not feel good.
I've been picking out one area a day and organizing......things can get pretty messy in the studio.
And today I cleaned my dye area out on the inside porch.
Miss Naya follows me everywhere......I have to be careful not to step back, because she is right there.
Last week our outing was to the vet, not such a great day.
This week we went to the local pet store, which she liked a LOT more. She stuck her nose in all the bins low enough to reach, and sniffed all the goodies.
Of course, everyone loved her.
We got a Walk Right harness, which is like the Easy Walk harness, but actually easier to put on.
And we got a leash that extends 16 feet, for when we walk on the beach, or in the fields.
Also, a new dog dish, and a naturally shed elk horn, for her to chew, which she has so far ignored.
All in all, a positive experience for her, so that she knows that getting in the car is not the road to hell.
This weekend, I went upstairs to the "rug room", and worked on a rug for my friend in Georgia.
Naya found a comfy place to keep track of me.
On the towel warp, I am still having fun. Which is really what it is all about.
And I am emptying all those spools with thread on them from previous projects........with the goal of having all EMPTY spools..............I'm getting there.
AND using up all that thread.
This one looks like pine trees in the wind.
Occasionally in the evening, I retreat from the living room, where DH watches TV CONSTANTLY, and do a little night weaving.
Listen to a little Pandora.
I don't stay up real late, because I get up SO early. Still.
The bed in my room for Naya gets used a lot by SYD.........because Naya would really rather sleep with me.
