Happy Friday! I’m in a fabulous mood… Tomorrow is 136th Run for the Roses, aka: the Kentucky Derby. Never in its history has it been called on account of rain, so let the drops fall! (Easy for me to say; I won’t be there to get soaked in my glad hat and fancy frock.)
And remember that you heard it here… Paddy O’Prado to win, place or show (the only way I place a wager). There’s an old saying in horse racing about betting on the grey on a cloudy day, and this handsome Irishman is a mudder, which is to say that like a good scrappy lad, he doesn’t mind digging deep and slinging some mud.
While we’re not going to a Derby bash per se, we are going to the Grymes Memorial School‘s annual auction. That’s the big deal for the weekend here. I’m really looking forward to spending the evening with Ann and her friends and family!
So, Day #5 of Knitcroblo…
Location, Location, Location
Where do you like to indulge in your craft? Is your favourite arm chair your little knitting cubby area, or do you prefer to ‘knit in public’? Do you liek to crochet in the great outdoors, perhaps, or knit in the bath, or at the pub?
Like most of these questions, there’s not a simple, single answer to this one. Mostly, I knit from my corner of the sofa I share with the fur-girls. However, I also knit at the firehouse, in whatever vehicle we’re in, out on the deck… anywhere. I tend to crochet at home, because of late, my crochet projects are big and bulky.
I know it doesn’t ask about spinning, but I spin from the Knight’s recliner most of the time. I also love to spin on the back deck and find the wrought iron chairs just about perfect.
So, where will you be watching the Derby? (And please feel free to knock me off my high horse and remind me that not everyone waits all year for the Run for the Roses.)
True to my culturally diverse lifestyle, we’ll head home to catch the end of the almost in our backyard Richmond NASCAR race. Sunday will truly be a day of rest, and I sincerely hope it doesn’t rain on those of you going to Maryland Sheep & Wool on Sunday. However, knowing this region as I do, I think that with highs near 90, you’d better anticipate a thunderstorm or three…
