Good gravy Marie!!!! It is HOTTER than "H E double hockey sticks" around here. At 2:30pm the temp here is 99 degrees and the heat index is 103. HOT, HOT, HOT!!!!! Our little pond has totally dried up. And the big one is so shallow, you can see how far the water has retreated from the bank in the picture below. This time last year the trunk and on up the branches of that little fallen tree was submerged. We are in bad shape. My heart goes out to those whose livelihood depends on crops or their animals being able to graze.
Well, that is the HOT portion. I swear, I didn't aim to do it. Again, it just sorta happened. I went into my LYS, Crafty Hands today JUST to pick up the newest Limited Edition Tofutsie by SWTC and to get some sock yarn to include in the Sockamaniacsocknitters swap package due to be sent out by the 13th. You can see here what my swap partner sent to me!!!
Found the perfect sock yarn for my swap pal - CHECK. Found the new SWTC Limited Edition Tofutsie sock yarn - CHECK. Then it happened. The debil herself started running all over the store like a crazed banshee showing me all the new sock yarns all the while pointing other things out to the her other victims in the store. She did show me some really neat new sock yarn by Crystal Palace Yarns - Maizy. This yarn is 82% corn fiber and 18% elastic nylon. The colors are gorgeous and there was this one coral called Hibiscus.........well, when I walked out of the store I had the swap pal yarn, the new Tofutsie, the Maizy, two really adorable tape measures (one for me and one for somebody), 3 new sets of dpns (sizes 0,1, & 2), a swift and a ball winder. HEY, I needed to last two things!!!!!
My new theme song is "Crazy, I'm Crazy For Feeling So Lonely." I know I'm crazy for feeling so lonely but what are you!!!!!! Just as much a crazed fool as me, that's what!!!!!
