Good morning from the rancho!!
Lots of happy here today. Baby boy made it into Oakland!! His flight was delayed in Chicago, so made it to California later than expected. Honestly, if the delay was due to weather and safety, I'm good. Then he told me that he was taking BART to get into the city. Hmmm, after he told me that the New York subway was safer than BART, I started to worry all over again. LOL
Today is the first day without frost in about a week. It's still under 40 degrees, but at least I don't have to bundle up to take out the trash. LOL I will need to start pruning my rose bushes soon. I usually have them all done by mid-January, so I'm still on schedule.
I spent yesterday running errands and then did a bit of de-cluttering. Honestly, living with a hoarder is difficult. Most times I try to put on blinders, but once in a while I just can't stand it. I have to be careful though. If I don't cover the stuff up in the garbage bin, he will dig it back out. Really. His dad was a hoarder and when he passed away, half of his stuff came to our house. Add the fact that my husband is starting to have some memory issues...the next few years can only get worse. I try to be subtle. I don't say much about the outside, but when his stuff starts to creep up to the front of the property, I put my foot down.
Time to get out of my jammies and start my day. My order from Amazon came in on Thursday, so I'll make a quick run into the post office. I'm pretty excited...it's the t-pins and foam squares that I ordered to block my scarf. Yay!! I've decided that I have three projects on my bucket list: knit a pair of socks, crochet a fancy shawl, and crochet a pair of slippers. If I can get these done, I'll need a blocking system. I thought about using cardboard and a towel, but I found some foam block on Amazon that were very reasonable. They're really for a play floor for kids, but have a lot of reviews from people that use them for blocking. Much cheaper than the "real" ones. LOL
Off and moving. Have a great day and be kind to one another.
