Lucky Day Diary March 4-13, 2011

Okay, so there were one or two days that I really had trouble finding something NEW to write about. Most of the snow has gone - this is lucky, but that means the challenges (and luck) of getting out of the snowbanks are not there. Plus you can only celebrate the opening of clams once or twice or people begin to think that ....well.... maybe you should get a life. So I took a few days off and boy, am I sorry because things have opened like floodgates. I don't know where to begin - maybe a few headings would help -

Outside - Fortunately there are lots of signs of Spring!! On my 3-mile walks, of which I managed 3 in the last 10 days, I saw sprouts - probably tulips, heard the Cardinal singing, had a day of sunshine and had lots of things to do for the 9 days that it rained!! On the day that it was raining, sleeting and snowing all at once, I luckily reminded myself that I have given up a dream (maybe a nightmare) of going to live in the Outer Hebrides - it is cold and rains a lot there too.
Knitted Royal Wedding

Inside - I finally devised a way of listening to my new CD from Celtic Thunder. I bought it about 2 weeks ago and since I am the only one in the house that listens to folk music, I have to play it when no one else is around. However, I did find some earphones and the "hole" for the earphones on my portable CD player, which I moved beside the knitting chair. A nice escape from the hockey game!

Meredith and Jeremy paid another visit - a great escape from work. My new website is coming along! as is the lace shawl Pisces. Carol Feller sent me 9 new designs to print and put up in "What's New"
More knitted wedding

My favourite guest - knitted
Knitting - My friend Brenda sent me a link to an article in the Guardian about the KNITTED wedding.

I  may have missed a few minor items - like National Grammar Day and FB ideas like National Book Day - where you grab the book closest to you, turn to page 56 and read the 5th sentence, then post it to your wall on FB.  Of course the book closest to me was a Barbara Walker - so the line I posted was a little dry and technical - something about slip stitches - nothing really juicy!  But one of the best lines in the 10 days came from a friend who forwarded a horoscope onto me. It said, "Be Alert" - the world needs more lerts!!!
