I'm finding it quite hard to tell... my eyes have been so wanting to close themselves all day. Now, at half past eight in the evening I'm clock-watching until it can be time for bed. (going up early isn't helpful!)
Anyway, let's start with Noah's Ark;
Yesterday was scorpions! Luke 10;19-20 Powerful words;
I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.
Today was oxen, looking quite snug in their quarters. I hope they can't read; the scripture is Proverbs
Better a small serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred.
I'm fairly certain that they would be in agreement regarding the best menu.
I have finished the first sock, and it fits - I should have had more confidence, even though I was using a different yarn and different needles to the ones specified in the pattern.
I am now marking where start knitting from each day, in order to encourage myself with visual evidence of progress. So the little yellow marker shows where I got to on Saturday, and I did all the rest on Sunday, in spite of my hand threatening to cramp every so often.
The tea cosy continues; I tried it on (the teapot, not me, obviously) on Sunday, and it was just about the same height. Allowing for shrinkage after the felting process, it wants to be about half as tall again. It does seem to be about half as wide as it needs to be which makes me feel hopeful.
The weather outside was beautiful - sunny, with the daffodils nodding in the garden, the little sparrows and middling sized starlings and enormous magpies all busy-busy at the bird feeders.
I stuck my nose out-of-doors, considering taking a short walk, and promptly ducked back inside again. Not a cheerful breeze out there, but a blisteringly cold wind.
By tea time I was 'finished' with the day. We had sandwiches and 'salady-bits'. I was so tired I cut up my sandwiches into tiny squares to make it easier (do you use scissors to cut up your sandwiches? I always do). Some kinds of cold meat (like corned beef) are easy to eat, but other kinds, like Italian cured hams are resistant to teeth, so scissoring it all up beforehand can take the effort out of the eating.
