Time Is A Flexible Concept.

I honestly have no idea just where this day went. It could be the fact that the Sci-Fi channel had back to back zombie movies on last night and I just couldn't resist staying up to watch them. A 1:00 bedtime often results in a later wakey-wakey time. In my case, it was 8:00 this morning. I'm normally one of those annoying Sheep who rises with the birdies, all chipper and bright.

Maybe it is the amount of time that had to go into the revisions of my Zombie Invasion Preparedness Planning after viewing six or so hours of walking deadness. That has taken up a rather disturbing amount of time what with all the new data I've managed to collect. Apparently, there is now a chance that I can be infected by Zombie Pox if bitten by a mosquito. You can see where one might need to revisit one's strategy after learning this...

It could be that, following yesterday's post, Rational Mind has ceased speaking to me except to occasionally remind me of how much I am not getting done around here. Hysterical Mind has been chiming in periodically with her thoughts on the new HM Fan Club she is putting together and whom I think might be the best host for her new website. Hoping against hope to lure RM back to the fold to help me get a handle on the holiday mess I have made for myself, I am choosing to ignore HM. She is not taking it well.

Truth be told, though, I suspect that it has more to do with the role models I have here. There has been a high level of laziness within my field of vision today and, thus, I have not finished much of that which was on the to-do list. (I'm starting to hate that list with a passion that would ignite a thousand suns) For example:






I worked on a sock...but didn't get far.

I started a new felted ornament...but soon petered out.

Also in the, "Oh, who even cares anymore?" category we have: the Christmas cards, replacing that stupid string of lights that burned out, the last of the shopping, and cleaning the kitchen. The four loaves of pumpkin bread that were to be finished this weekend are a mere two. And those are just literally out of the oven. There is little hope that I will get up the gumption to pull two more out of my hat tonight.

I did, however, clean the toilet. Those who know me well will understand that this was a major event. It required a nap. Come to think of it, that might help to explain where part of the day went...

And yet, despite all evidence to the contrary, there is an FO for your viewing pleasure! Yet another Harlot Scarf is off the needles and ready for the tree. In my never ending quest to fiddle with this pattern, I have added a little crocheted detail to the ends rather than the fringe that the last version sported.


Kinda fancy!
I actually had some far better pictures of the scarf, but they all reflected what I thought might be my Thanksgiving Pie weight. I told you that stuff sticks to ya like a bad date! You will just have to live with this shot. I think I managed to snap this one on an, "inhale..."
I really have no plan for the upcoming week, project-wise. It is the last week of school before vacation and one that can be tricky what with lots of excited kiddies and lots of vacation-ready staff. We'll see what the week brings. I'd kind of like to just keep working on my sock. After all, I did finish that one last scarf! And that wasn't even on the to-do list for, crying out loud! Do I not deserve a new sock????
Back before RM gave up on me in utter disgust and shuttled off to the recesses of my brain to sulk, she did ask me to pass along her thanks to a few folks who took up the meme challenge. Had these brave souls not stepped forward, I shudder to think of the state HM might be in right now in terms of overall self-esteem. The volunteers are: Mehitabel, Jeanne and Sheila! Keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they bravely sally forth to answer the call of The Sheep's Hysterical Mind. And do check out what they list as their "6 weird things."
And following the lead of an imaginary concept developed to help illustrate internal discord does not count. Admit it...on some level you were all a little tempted!
Have a great week!

Big fluffy kitty looks more than lazy - she kind of looks like one of the undead Zombies!

Love the crocheted edge on the scarf!

Sheepish,

You are just a knitting machine. The scarf looks great. Best of luck to you during the torment week.

trek said...

Yes, you deserve a new sock! You always deserve a new handknit sock.

PS - Hint to RM that deciding to hide in the dark recesses of the brain will only encourage HM to become even more, well, um, hysterical and maybe she should prevent that. All for the Sheep's own good you know ;o)

Sheila said...

Yay, I've been tagged.
I love how Trek is now commenting to your separate "minds". I love reading the comments of your readers, almost as much as I enjoy your own blog entries.
I'm off to think about the 6 wierd things....

catsmum said...

okay consider me tagged too... I tried to avoid it [ being not at all weird ] but what-the-heck.

Beth said...

I was tempted to step forward, but was having trouble thinking of all my weirdness. I thought of a few things then my mind strayed to my Christmas to-do list...

I like the crocheted scarf edge, too!

April said...

I have it on good authority that zombies can be repelled by a clean toilet. You're all set, Sheepie!

And the scarf? Simply faboo. I heart the crocheted edge.

Jeanne said...

Woohoo, I've been tagged! :-) Thank you, Sheepie! Now if I can only put down the frantic xmasknitting long enough to think of my weirdnesses...

The scarf looks wonderful! The edging is lovely. Also your WIPs on the kitty are coming along nicely.

RM should have forgiven you when you crocheted the edging on the scarf. I know I am pleased (FWIW, I also joined HM fan club)
