The Yarnarian Radically Accepts a Change of Plans.

Huh? What is she talking about? Well she had all sorts of plans for today, but woke up at 3 AM with a very unhappy stomach. End of that discussionn. We don't feel very well this morning either. SO, the Yarnarian has to radically accept that all her plans for today are not going to work out. And she had lots of plans. KV will understand that radical acceptance thing, the rest of you may have to look it up. Go find DBT on the web. I learn these things from various family members.

Plans for today: dye yarn for the poor sotm member whom I forgot, dye some Bambi yarn, package all the yarn that sold and get it to the post office, bake bread, do laundry, straighten up the chaos of the yarn all over the house, finish the Dancing Feet socks, wind up the skein of lace yarn that I've loved from day one and it didn't sell, and now it's all mine, go to the library.

New plans for today: not much. whatever the stomach will allow. I do want to put up a loaf of bread. It's chilly here and I need to smell that bread aroma. Well, maybe not. But do it anyhow.

I have a tendency to fight these things. Feeling crappy is not going to stop me, blah, blah, blah. But today, I'm going to give in and just take it easy. Sometimes you just have to accept that you get what you get, and just deal with it.

My cuppa Darjeeling tea tastes fine. Gonna make another cup. If I could live on tea, I would. That plus top notch bread. Mmmmm!

Is this not a good kvetch. Kvetch = complain, grouse, grump. It's a great word, and you do pronounce that "k" and "v" together.

So, here are 2 project bags that I recently purchased. I can't seem to resist these things.

The knitting witch is from ZigZag Stitches. Is she not the cutest thing around? The second one is from Stuck in Illinois and was a larger size made for me, and still very inexpensive.

Dyeing News: New Alexa yarns. This yarn is the height of luxury! Feels like cashmere at a pittance of the cost. And, it's superwash. I'd still wash it by hand the first couple of times.

Bev - I'm almost done with the sock. Yay!

KV - A little radical acceptance never hurts. Sometimes you just have to accept that you feel crappy. ;-0

Carolyn and Ria - The tummy is mending, slowly, but mending. If I drink any more tea, caf and rooibos, I'm going to float away.
