Can you imagine Air Canada, Westjet, Porter and all the other airlines that fly into airports, with their own standardized time. So 3:00 for Air Canada would be, maybe, 2:30 for Porter and let's say 7:00 for Westjet. Talk about missed connections - throw into the mix a snowstorm and you have total chaos. I know we often have chaos when flights are grounded, but at least their times are synchronized!
I don't know; something inside of me says that, yes it makes life easier to have everyone on the same page; but, something is lost - a happenstance, a serendipity, an accident in time that might make all the difference.

Actually I have had knitters tell me that they have knit Crazy Quilt Mitts and have written down everything that they have done in the first mitt, so that they could make a second mitt exactly the same. There is something in us that strives for order! The whole idea of the chaotic crazy quilt is that you don't have to be bored with doing the same mitten twice!
I also designed the Kitten, Puppy dog and Teddy Bear Mittens and a few others so that you could just knit one of any type of mitten and combine them together. Or if one mitten of a set were lost, you didn't have to throw it away - you just wore a dog with a cat or a teddy bear with a pig etc. Kids would understand.

Dinner tonight - something unpredictable. Soup usually works. To a can of broth add whatever works from the fridge or cupboard. Or a stir fried rice something - to a couple of cups of cooked rice in a frying pan add whatever works from the fridge or cupboard. I promise to be more controlled tomorrow. I think that I have been doing too much lace, which really requires discipline, so I had to vent!
