I'm A Hummer

Hey all, I've gotten some knitting done this week but haven't taken any pictures to show. Hopefully I'll get that done this week. The other day I was reminded of a little story.

I'm a hummer, over the years I've come to accept it. I hum. I hum alot........I hum all the time......practically nonstop. My family hates it. I don't even know I'm doing it and usually it isn't even a real song, just something I'm making up as I go. My baby girl, Sara, left this comment on my post entitled "Its Kinda Interesting - Living In The South."

"I love my Momma. I am so proud of her... she is so hilarious, talented (cooking, singing and as you all know knitting and anything involving yarn) and a wonderful Gammy as well as a great Momma. Despite her lolligagging, shenaniganning and constant humming. I love you!!!"

Isn't that sweet? Anyways, back to the humming thing. Years ago I was helping my mother and step-father with some painting, my step-father, Luther, laughed and said "well, I know you are your mother's daughter, she whistles all the time." Isn't that funny? I wasn't raised by my Mother, yet here I am humming, probably cuz I can't whistle worth a toot. :)

Sometime ago while substitute teaching a second grade class there was this one little boy that was so cute AND so very active. He just couldn't sit still or quit talking so I asked him to come sit next to me at my desk and do his work. He was quite happy to do that. After several minutes of him being quiet and working he place both hands flat on my desk and said, "If I'm going to work that humming has to stop." HA!!!!!!!!

I'm A Hummer!!!!!! Knitting news soon, I promise.

Sunday night means a visit with my Kentucky friend, Peggy - the hummer. Did you know that alpacas hum? Usually if they are a little agitated, unsettled, unlike us. Well, I don't know. Maybe you are unsettled and don't realize it.
