Dreary Sunday Morning

It’s grey and drizzly today, which perfectly fits my mood. We’ll be leaving for church in a while, and that just makes me incredibly sad today. It’s Pastor’s last Sunday. He’s leaving, due to a situation that defies explanation unless you’ve ever dealt with small town politics. It’s been weighing heavy on my heart all week.

I have not posted about it, I know. I really have not dealt with it inside myself yet. I guess……even here on my blog, this catalog of my own thoughts, that the more I have on my mind, the more I talk about trivial things to avoid the things that hurt. Or confuse me. This does both.

After I finished the sweater, I picked up DD#4’s blanket. It’s supposed to have 5 repeats, but I am running low on yarn after 4 and a half. It’s huge anyway, so I will go ahead and trim and edge (yes, it gets both) it now, instead of buying another ball of yarn that probably will not match anyway. I think it will be finished sometime today.

Now, I have to tell you about my thinker. DD#3 has a mind that quite quickly grabs the obvious that often eludes me. I was talking to Dh about the stash, and he recommended just not buying any yarn at all. (Yeah, right) So, I explained that I don’t have enough of any one thing to make a sweater for the larger family members, in fact no one larger than DD#3. So she says, “why can’t you just buy a yarn that would go with that, just enough to make it be enough to do a bigger sweater?” Well, duh! I had not even thought of that. But it’s an excellent idea, and I will pursue that option when the time comes. The bigger lots have “almost enough” and just need enough for contrasting cuffs or a few stripes. Viola, problem solved with the addition of a couple balls of solid in a coordinating color and suitable fiber content.

Ok, time to get dressed. Lord, I dread this.
