Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Monday in the morning!

“Good morning Vietnam!”  Ooops – wrong movie.  “I love the smell of napalm in the morning.”  Nope, still not right.  “Good morning!  Good mor-r-r-ning!   We’ve talked the whole night through.  Good morning, good morning, to you!”  Well, Fred Astaire, Donald O’connor and what’s-her-name are a lot closer to my state of mind.


 It’s raining, so I don’t have to drag the hose around the yard giving drinks to all the green things.  I will, however, trip lightly through the dripping grass to harvest  a Perfume Delight rose that has just opened up.  I could just about BATHE in the scent.  And this bush seems relatively hardy in spite of the blight of blackspot, so I would heartily recommend it to anyone who wants a perfectly rose-pink rose with perfectly swoony rose fragrance.


I breakfasted on fresh tea and left-over biscotti (Bless you Tamara!) and am wide awake and cheerful, with minimal clean-up necessary.  I have a list of errands as long as my arm (if I write big) but they should be speedily completed, and by two, I hope to be spinning.


I have left my boring white sweater (size 3 needles) to languish while I play with my vivid, handspun chevron, knit from the neck down sweater.  Stripes.  (Yipes!) in shades of pale blue, aqua, sea-green, mossy green, fir green, pink, plum, HOT PINK, and chrome yellow. (I really do need a camera) Yeah, it’s so loud you can hear it coming a block away.  When I’m working at home in the blue depths of winter, I can pull on this sweater and be cheered and cozied.  Heck, I might even wear it to the jail when I take the GED tests to the inmates.  A jolt of color might be welcome.  And God knows that testing room gets chilly.  The thermostat there has two settings.  On, and off.  Over the course of a two hour test, the temperature goes from 60 to 80 to 60 again.


Biggest job for today, (after getting the bonbons mailed to beloved father-in-law) is editing the galleys on the book and sending in the corrections.  Sooner done, the sooner we hit press.  I’ll just get dressed and get into it! 


Thanks for checking in!

    That sweater sounds noisy indeed. Do you tutor the inmates or just give them the tests?
