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.”

Thoughts on the hereafter

For the last few days I have gone into a room and then asked myself, "What am I here after?" I have developed centipede's dilemma. As soon as I stop and think about what I'm doing, I forget how to do it. If I could just bumble along on auto pilot, I could get things done, but I have been flicking back and forth from stupor to awareness and it takes time to figure out what I was doing and what comes next.

Knitting will be here this Saturday. I'd better get in the groove and start functioning or we'll be shoving unfolded laundry to the side of the table so we can enjoy our tea and oreos. This month's theme is yellow. We all need some sunshine.

Here's the hat I knit during Sherlock HOlmes. I don't know why, but as I was finishing it up, it demanded a quirky little bobble on a string. I-cord during the final minutes on the bridge with the fabulous sepia-toned setting and the gritty feel to the whole scene went just like lightning!

DH is home with a stinking cold. Bless his dear heart. And if I try to nurse him, it just annoys him, so all I can do is leave medicines where he can find them and go about my day.

Best wishes about your day, too!

    Cute hat!

    I do hope your hubby feels better soon. It stinks to get sick. And I suggest more tea for the 'fog'.

    You were right on with the dating of the patterns. It's so much fun to flip through the mags!

    Oh, thank gawd I'm not the only one who has that "hereafter" problem. Don't get me wrong, I can get a lot of things done when it happens, just not what I had INTENDED to do at that time. I blame it on the 70's.

    I have been having what I think of as early onset alzheimers. I can't spell and I forget words and my brain is definitely fuzzy. Maybe it's just winter?

    Yellow is the perfect theme for January. I hope dh feels better soon. They are sooo hard to mother.

    Love that cap! Don't know how you do it in the dark...knit, I mean!!!! LOL
    Again, thanks for the washcloths. I am using the 2 big ones in my shower but my cat, Kala, has claimed the small one as her own. she grabbed it, dragged it to her sleep spot and hangs on to it. When I try to pull it away she takes hold and won't let go! I will have to send pic. I do not know why she picked that one, but it is hers for now.

    The hat is adorable... and I now know what that thing is I do when I wander the house for an hour... I'm meditating the hereafter!

    I turn my head looking for something - then forget the something. Getting old sucks!

    Let him rest,
    Treat him the best.
    He will heal,
    for real.

    I love the match of colors of your knitting projects.

    cute, elegant.
