Congratulate Me; It Seems I Am A Grandmother!

Surprising, I know. Especially when you consider the fact that I have no children. Well...that I know of, heh, heh. ::wink wink...::

And yet it seems that I somehow managed to successfully raise a happy and healthy spider to adulthood. And this spider has presented me with about eleventy gajillion little bundles of joy. I could be wrong. I'm not such a great parent that I have been paying close attention or maintaining solid communication with my "offspring." But it's the only explanation I have for the sudden plethora of tiny little spiders I've seen crawling hither and thither over the past couple of days. Do I get to have a shower and gifts for this?

Probably not as I seem to be squishing all my little grandbabies. This is not going to put me in line for Grandma Of The Year.

And now to The Sheep over at the weather desk. How're things looking today, Sheep?

It's hot. We hit a record temp. of 95 in the living room today. This has taken a toll on the residents and tempers seem to be rising along with the humidity. A cold front is approaching for tomorrow so we're hoping for the best...back to you, Sheep.

Lastly, I have finished the knitting tote!!! Of course, Blogger is not up to doing photos tonight so you're just going to have to trust me on this one.

I'm not gonna lie to you; this bag has "issues." Serious issues. But it was a good learning experience and helped me to recall some of those skills which haven't been used in quite a while. And if I walk along swinging it jauntily then the movement will blur it enough that no one will notice. I've put some thought into this...

Besides, I'm a grandmother, for crying out loud. I am an elder, deserving of respect and tolerance.

Nobody will notice issues with the knitting tote when you tell them it is filled with yarn for knitting many, many hats for all of your grandspiders. :)
