Determination or Denial?
This is right below and in front of our house. If it weren't hunting season, I imagine the deer jumping up and trying to get the last remnants of the growing season. Where's Gary Larson when you need him?
The new knitting resolution has been a good plan. Whether I really do it or not is not nearly as significant as is the fact that I'm going through the books and will have some to move to better homes very soon.
To be filed in the category of things I wish I had said:
I was wearing this hat at the grocery store yesterday. It is very warm and I noticed, also makes people smile a little when they see it. The clerk checking my groceries said,
"I like your hat but I honestly have to say I'd never wear it."
Had I the wit and wisdom of someone older than myself- like those 80 year old ladies that say whatever they want- it would have occurred to me to say,
"That's o.k. It wouldn't look good on you anyway."
I suppose I can relish the fact that karma was in my favor- though I wonder if I lose points for thinking it as I drove home.
