Actually, something saved a life yesterday. You know as we go through life there are things we begin to take for granted. The little things that make our life easier. You walk into a room and flip a switch with total faith that the lights are going to come on. That is unless you forgot to pay the light bill after the umpteenth disconnect letter was received, or you got just a little too happy with the debit card at White Castle and the check bounced or possibly that ugly thing that used to be the sweetest little thing before it grew into a teenager slithered in during the middle of the night and stole every dang light bulb in the house for a their friend's house. There are those little things that totally change our life every day we have just grown accustomed to, never giving it another thought.
A life was saved yesterday by a little blue piece of rubber. Yeah!!!!! A little blue piece of rubber!!!! I can't give you a picture of the exact little blue rubbery thing, it is busy doing its job. But here is a picture of one of its relatives.
When duty called, and it was quite a dangerous situation, this little feller didn't hesitate. He stood up to the challenge and came out with shining colors. You see, yesterday morning I completed a few more rows of Mystic Waters, wrapped it up and placed it on the kitchen table lovingly patting it as I walked away. Little did I know what was to occur next. I went into the bedroom to get ready for the 2 hour trip to take Nanny to the doctor. Singing my little carefree heart out, I changed my clothes, put on my makeup, laced up my boots and out the door I went, joyfully skipping through the living room. What should catch my eye? My Mystic Waters spread eagle on the kitchen floor with a trail of yarn leading into the living room, under the couch and around behind the love seat. I immediately knew the culprit, Roegun, Jordan's dog. Screaming, I dropped to my knees and scooped up my little shawl, carefully examining each stitch and inch for injury. Thank God, she was fine. All stitches intact and all because of those little neglected, rarely praised blue thingys. Roegun has no idea had it not been for these little brave guys his life would be greatly diminished.
Although the shawl survived unscathed the ball of alpaca cloud suffered a great deal. Again, thankfully I had one more ball.Can I get a hooyah for all the brave little blue fellers out there? H O O Y A H!!!!!!
The Vineyard Socks are finished. They just about came out perfect.
