There’s a great sense of satisfaction in tying up loose ends. That’s what I’ve been doing this morning as the jet stream blows in another heavy rainstorm straight from Hawaii. (It’s called the “pineapple express,” and the moisture-laden storms line up in the Pacific and head straight for the Northwest, letting loose tons of warm moisture to make this area green and gorgeous, but it is also why much of the area is on a flood watch until Tuesday.) As long as you’re not on watch for flooding, it’s great weather for knitting and reading.
So this morning, I reset all the clocks in the house, and was reminded by Mom to reset the clock in the car.
Then I finished another Grammy knitting project…a little cable sweater for precious grandson, Kai. That required weaving in all those loose yarn ends.
This weekend I’ve also been helping my daughter finish moving out of their old place into their very nice, new place. And all the while I was helping her, I was thinking of our bookshelves and bookshelves full of books at home and wondering how many heavy boxes it would take to move US at this point? Which reminds me of what the checker at the grocery store said to me recently when she read my favorite sweatshirt that says, “There’s no such thing as too many books.” Her quip: “Oh yes there is!…when you’re moving!”
Also, yesterday I met with my substitute and helped him fill out report cards for this term…a big Leave of Absence loose end that I had agreed to be part of when he took over my 6th grade classroom for me.
But I’m not quite ready to tie up my reading loose end yet, although I am almost finished reading Out of Africa…
