Another Proud CityKidz Knit! Day

Wednesday, November 12th, 2003

Well, today I woke up with a headache that makes me want to shave my head… maybe less weight from my hair would make the headache lessen. This used to happen a lot, but I haven’t had one of these in months. It was nice to forget what they were like for a while…

It was predictable, as November is always my worst month for allergies. Today it was practically warm for November, a balmy 60 degrees F. The fallen wet leaves were producing mildew very happily, which was attacking my head and sinuses. I got up for a little while, felt crummy, was lucky enough that I could go back to bed. I took a nap for a whole 2 hours. I must have really needed it.

The good news was that once I got to Foster Center, the CityKidz Knit! program fully distracted me for an hour and a half or so. I just love these kids. They make my day, my week, my life. Here they are showing off the projects of the day. I’m missing two kids in the pic but you get the idea.

I’m still working toward putting up a new yarn sale web page in time for the Socknitter Ad Day on Saturday. That means I want to put it up for you folks on Friday. I have to be at JoAnn Fabrics on Friday morning and I don’t know how long I’ll be there. Cross fingers for me that it all gets done on time. I wish this headache was gone, I could go much faster if I just felt better. I guess I can count my blessings it’s only an allergy headache I have to complain about today, really.

It’s supposed to snow tomorrow and maybe the next day. I’m practically cold-phobic (hence my adoration of wool, mohair and alpaca) but this time I’m all for it. The headache will likely go away when it freezes outside. I’ll just dig out the alpaca sox and a good pair of legwarmers, and I’ll deal with it.

Because of the impending snow, I harvested the last of my sage herb plant today. My friend Tony took some the other day, and Altu enjoyed some last year and says she’d love some more. The rest I will share with students and if there is any more I will dry the remainder. I put a little in some lentil soup I made yesterday… but I have enough to flavor soup for the whole city of Lansing, it seems. I’m not a great gardener, but sage comes up every year on its own and it really likes the location where I put it about 3 years ago. Lucky me!
