Kevin and I spent Friday night in the city. We stayed at the Tribeca Grand Hotel. They had fishbowls in every room. It’s the small things in life that thrill me. Of course we were fighting. What night out is any good without an argument. His mom was coming to babysit and did he help tidy up? Nope! Sure he picked his clothes–at least most of them–up off the floor but he left the change from his pockets. And he left me with no gas AND asked me to return the keys to his rental car. He offered to take me to Purl to make up for his trangressions but I will make him pay for it at Maryland Sheep and Wool.
We had dinner with his friend from work. This is the same friend whose party we went to at Christmas. This Park Avenue penthouse apartment never ceases to amaze me. Why doesn’t Kevin make that kind of money? I could buy more yarn and donate to the rest to charities of my choice. Saturday we went to breakfast at this cute place called Bubby’s. Breakfast was pretty good but I was exhausted from the late night and my feet hurt from wearing shoes with heels. Next stop…Niketown. My feet and me were much happier afterwards.
Needless to say I went to bed very early Saturday. Sunday was Gracie’s soccer game. She wasn’t going to play this season as she is passionate about her swimming but we convinced her to give it another go. The girls on her team are terrific and she will be in middle school with them next year. More nice friends = good. Gracie prefers goal but is usually a bit afraid of the ball. Her arch enemy was the on the opposing team. Gracie was phenomenal diving for balls, taking balls in the thigh. I barely even knit the game was so exciting. Yea, they lost but Grace had some good saves.
I am rambling here…I am three inches from completion of the baby blanket. I need to string some more beads for pulsewarmers. St. Brigid needs one more tink. My mom has offered to do it but I really have no desire to knit on it at all. Anyone else been working on St. Brigid?
I can hardly believe Maryland Sheep and Wool is just a couple of weeks away. Granny has offered my mom use of her walker. My mom refuses. I suggested she use a cane. At the very least, she can swat people away at the Koigu booth. I feel like I ought to knit at least a bit more from the stuff I bought at Rhinebeck but it’s all quite wooly and I don’t feel like knitting wool. I am working on a cute little bolero in the Debbie Bliss Cathay Cotton for the shop.
Rambling still…gonna get to some interview questions. Today’s questions are for Angi, the Spinning Doula. Angi is a lovely spinner and terrific knitter. Her doula stories are amazing. I can’t even describe the feeling I get when I read them. They are like magic.
You know the rules, right?
1. What prompted you to become a doula?
2. Where does Khi’s name come from?
3. How did the kids get into the circus program? Do you and Benny ever get in on the act?
4. Why did you start blogging?
5. How many pets do you have now? And how do they all get along? Where do you keep the goat?
I am adding Nancy’s questions too. I encountered Nancy during the Devan Knitalong she hosted. We became friendly via email discussing Early Intervention and Preschool speech services. We are trying to hook up to meet in real life. And we will at Maryland and some Monday in Soho. Or perhaps the Bronx Zoo on a Sunday.
1. Do you have any siblings?
2. Why did you drop out of high school?
3. Do you think you’ll finish your degree? Do you still want to be a school counselor?
4. If you could take a vacation anywhere, where would it be? By yourself, with the kids, a girlfriend or just Rinaldo?
5. What’s your budget for Maryland Sheep and Wool?
