I Stream…

No, that’s not a typo.  Any of you who have exchanged more than pleasantries with me probably have realized that I have a rather stream of consciousness style of writing, thinking and conversing. 

photo.JPGHere’s the unvarnished truth.  One of the fur-girls needed to patrol the perimeter in the wee hours of the morning.  I obliged.  They came back in – why yes, only one awakened me but they’re a dynamic duo – and were fast asleep before I settled in.  Three hours later, my mind finally let go and let me sleep for a bit…

… and I was late to work because I over-slept.  I’m not at all sure that dry shampoo stuff works, and it gummed up my hairbrush.  Has anyone else tried it?  (But my hair looked nice last night.  Thanks rain and humidity, for respecting the need for good meeting hair.) 

Anyway, I lack the ability to be cohesive today, so you get the whole jumble of thoughts tumbling around in my sleep-deprived, not such a good hair day head.

Happy birthday, Grace!!   You’re but one of the women I’ll have with me in spirit when I hit the Fall Fiber Festival this weekend.   I’m looking forward to hanging out with Amy on Sunday, having a cider donut, doing some stash enhancing and some gift shopping.  You know… souveniers for some friends who couldn’t join me? 

Let me know if you’re going to be there Sunday too.  I have no idea what I’ll be wearing and if you haven’t seen me in the last couple of months…  I hope you’ll recognize me.  My hair is lighter and so am I.  Maybe I’ll get photos up one of these days, but don’t hold your breath.  I don’t mean to be hard to get along with…  it just goes against my nature to say, “Take a picture of me, will you?!”  I’m too busy hugging, giggling, and letting my stream of consciousness spill all over the place to let you know what I look like these days…

Waistband inside out... before it was tacked down

More streaming.  Lanesplitter (a knitted skirt) is done, but needs a bath and blocking.  I still have two insanely special, wonderful gifts I need to get photos of so you can ooh and ahhh over them too. 

Last night’s meeting was “the best ever”.  Those aren’t my words, but I heard them enough after the meeting that I believe it.  I get no credit at all; my powerpoint show was prepared by someone else and I simply presented on the historian’s behalf, and the bylaws changes were approved painlessly because I read from the script my dear friend, our stellar president, had prepared for me… with my “parts” highlighted in PANK.   The first meeting of the year really is like a homecoming.  We get to catch up, there’s much hugging, and it’s truly a fun, happy evening.   I am truly blessed to be a part of such a dynamic, powerful group of women, and it is a real honor to be part of the leadership team.

What’s on your weekend agenda?

    I was seriously getting worried about you. Glad you just overslept. My pillow is giving me a headache – one is not enought and 2 are too many – so I always wake up with a headache – what’s a girl to do?

    Love the flat photos of the lanesplitter – can’t wait for 3d. and please – my pics? I don’t ask much from you. I won’t ask for sock yarn from your fiber festival or a big box of goodies come November 20, but please.

    Apparently – your still is spilling over onto me! Have a good day. 🙂 g

    We may go on Sunday this year so look for us… me, Chris and Olivia too of course!

    Sorry about the bad night. Here, too, and I was doggedly determined to get some sleep but it ran away from me.

    Giving Faulkner a run for his money, eh? Hope you get to bed early tonight. No big plans, though one is very sad…attend visitation tonight for 39 yr old Dad of 3 who lost his battle with Non-Hodgkin s Lymphoma (friend of my son in AF overseas, so going for him). Other than that the rest of the weekend involves finding something to wear for a wedding next week, taking 90+ yr old family friend out for b-day dinner, & getting act together for another work week. Hope you have fun at the festival.

    It’s hard to turn off my mind sometimes when I want to sleep. On the other hand I get some very creative ideas during those times.

    My weekend! This morning we rushed Morgan to the hospital. The tech just called and she’s torn her ACL. Because of her age we don’t want to do surgery so we have a long recovery ahead using steroids and pain killers. Wish us luck. We’re off to pick her up soon so I’ll post later on what lies ahead for her.

  6. I hate the streaming that keeps you up at night! It happens all too often

    Thank you for the birthday wishes!!!!

    I suffer insomnia. I guess it’s the price I pay for waking up very easily. Actually, if we lose our electricity before bedtime, I turn ON my bedside lamp. It awakens me when the power comes back on. For that reason, I have blackout draperies in my bedroom.

    And stream away! It’s more like a conversation that way.

    I agree with G. One pillow is not enough and two too many and then there’s neck/head pain :(. I fight with my pillows every single night as well as Miss Molly who refuses to allow whiney Mr. B back in the room when he decides to go for a night time living room stroll.*sigh* makes for lo-o-ong nights 😦

    Like that lanesplitter :). That was some fast knitting on your part.
    Enjoy the festival. Looks like perfect wool weather 🙂

  9. Oversleeping must be the ‘thang’ for today…I set my alarm 12 hours out, and woke upnearly 40 mins later than needed to begin my long day on the road. Ah well….still arrived safely, with only about 1/2 hours in the nasty Friday afternoon LA traffic. See? I can stream, too.

    Have FUN at the Fiber Festival!

  11. Bubblesknits says:

    OOOOH! I love the Lanesplitter!!! How hard was it? Glad you had a good first meeting. 🙂

    I can’t wait! I’ll be getting there when they open, but feel free to text me when you arrive.

    I’m bringing my wheel as well as some knitting, just in case the ground is too muddy to sit and spin.
