Ummm...errrr...

Well, I'm stumped. Utterly flummoxed. After two weeks rich with blog fodder that allowed for unlimited, if somewhat grumpy, posting, today brought only this:

I awoke to clear skies and nothing in the way of falling debris, frozen flakes or sparking wires

The vehicle which awaited me was mine own, not a rental.

The aforementioned vehicle started upon the turning of the key then proceed to carry me smoothly to my workplace.

Once at this workplace, an uneventful day proceeded to unfold. There was a little hiccup at the beginning when I was met by the principal who wished to share with me the rather horrific behavior of my students during my absence on Friday, but that was it in the way of real unpleasantness.

At day's end, the vehicle which had so valiantly transported me to school proceeded to repeat the behavior in a northerly direction.

I dropped off a prescription at the pharmacy for pick-up tomorrow, returned to my home where I completed a full hour work-out the likes of which I have not seen in a fortnight.


Where does one go with this???? There was no dramatic vehicular meltdown, no slogging through the rain to retrieve a truck that was not really fixed. I did not have to drive a toy car rental whose only interesting feature was its ability to make the radio play louder when I drove faster. And what does a Sheep do when she is denied her twice daily call to her new BFF, N****** From The Dealership to check on the progress of her ailing truck?

Sure, my blood pressure has gone back down. But what the heck do I talk about???

I suppose this is one of those emergency situations where I'll have to fall back on the knitting. In a frenzied bout of knitterly focus, I managed to knit a hat yesterday. Even I am starting to think that the ongoing parade of socks and scarves is getting just a bit tiring. And I had some rather yummy handspun that I wanted to make into something useful. So, here's a hat for your viewing pleasure:






Glass canisters are not great hat models. They are waif-like and not representative of the average woman's head. And yet they get all the good print jobs. I blame the media...
The yarn is a two ply Finn that came to me from the talented hands of Sheila at
Ewenique Fiber. Finn ranks up there as one of my all-time favorites. It is soft, squishy and spins like a dream. And when it is so beautifully dyed, you get functional as well as purty!
The hat itself came out a bit smaller than intended. But that's OK. I meant it for myself and I have something of a pinhead so all is well. (another thing that went my way...go figure) I'm planning on using up some handspun for hats and tucking them away as holiday gifts so I'll simply adjust the pattern a bit to accommodate the average person's cranial capacity.
That's it. I got nuthin' else. Not that I am wishing for another blast from the Bad Karma Kadets, but maybe tomorrow I'll get a hangnail or something minor that will fuel my bloggy instincts. I haven't done my taxes yet...that could pose a problem or two. And I blew off my homework for class since we were cancelled due to the snowstorm. I'm pretty sure that is going to blow up in my face. Really, we have all sorts of good stuff in the making right around the corner.
But, just for tonight, I think I'm going to revel in a little boredom. Maybe wear my new hat around the house just for kicks...

This is where the concept of "artistic license" comes in such handy.

As in, "The dreamy guy from the car repair place called me Saturday night for a date. Imagine my surprise when he showed up with his knitting! And his two cats in a carrier! Next weekend we're going to Paris."

You know, Sheep, you could make up a really cool story and feed it to us in segments and we'd never know the difference. Of course, Daddy Sheep might rat you out, though...

Julie said...

Nothing like a little boredom to make a sheep happy, eh?

I love the hat, but where's the hole? Come on, fess up; is it on the back side?

Mouse said...

hee hee hee.. the other comments made me giggle so much that I forgot what I was going to post!
Oh yes.. I think you should just soak in the blissful idea that is "nothing going wrong" because it happens so rarely!

Mel said...

Phew, I'm just glad I'm not the only procrastinator with taxes. I've never done them so late, though in my defense, I did start them about a month ago.

Emma said...

I would think you would welcome a little boredom in your life every once in a while! Cute hat.

Beth said...

Your hat is lovely and it reminds me of the vest you're knitting.

I like April's story, too!

Lazuli said...

Cute hat! It looks like those downed branches are enough excitement for a week or so!

Jeanne said...

Sometimes it's nice to have a day where everything goes, if not right, at least mundanely (great grammar) for a change. Enjoy it!

mehitabel said...

I'll take a day of mundane, honest! But you're right, as blog fodder it lacks that certain je-ne-sais-quoi that gas fires and no power provide!

Very cute hat!
I like nothing better than a few dull nothing out of the norm days. I hope you are blessed with a few of those even if they're light on blog fodder.
