Fowl and Poultry
Oh, I see it's been a real long time since I've blogged about anything. Several issues have kept that from happening. Mostly, Blogger wasn't so friendly with me for a while. Every time I tried logging in I would be told that I wasn't me or that my password was incorrect.
Once entrance was finally granted on my previous visit here, my template was all cattywompous and I couldn't figure out how anyone would figure out what was going on here.
What are those birds doing in my truck? The duckies are from the Rubber Duckie race that takes place each Labor Day at Canada Creek Ranch. The money from the purchase of the duckies goes towards something that I cannot remember at the moment.
The turkey is a solar bird. He flaps his wings on sunny days. There haven't been many of those lately. Yesterday was his first real sunny day so he had to be exhausted by sundown. A nice lady who I met up at CCR gave him to me.
I have been knitting. I never stop knitting except when I can't knit. Such a literary wonder, here, eh?
My Etsy shop has been dormant. My thumbs were sore with swollen joints for a few weeks over the summer. A sweater or two needed my attention. Once is complete, the other still in pieces along with a whole lot of other sweater parts laying around here. After all that knitting the assembly is often rather unenjoyable.
Today I learned that I cannot access my Etsy dashboard to add new items if I am using Google Chrome. Explorer only. That's not right, but, we will adjust.
My birthday was Tuesday. This year was the 57th for me which is welcome considering my dad and his brothers didn't get past 62. There is still one brother out there somewhere in Michigan. Uncle Frank seems to have just poofed into thin air.
Alrighty, now. I tried so hard to get through a Saturday without making a purchase. This morning real bright and early - early at least. There was no brightness. The first purchase of the day was from hanes.com. When they offer free shipping they lure me in. Six pairs of panties and two new bras.
Purchase number two was from an Etsy seller who hand dyes the most beautiful yarns. She was having a sale offering a Black Friday discount. Again, can't pass that up.
Purchase number three was even more yarn. Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn. Black and hot pink. Two really big skeins for $36. Without the discount it would have been $18 more than I paid.
Discounts make it all ok, right?
Back to my knitting. I need to do something with all this yarn and sell some more hand knits so I don't get buried under all this yarn never to be seen again.
