Strangely plain

Today’s post is strangely plain. The rose garden looks like something planted for Disney’s Haunted Mansion…all dead blooms. The ducks are well out of photo range, their location only betrayed by their escort, the white goose. New semi-solid sock yarn (Araucania Ranco Solid) in 4 colors arrived, but it’s a grey, rainy day. So no photos for you today.

Knitting has happened, but nothing flashy. Let’s see: I put a dental floss lifeline in my Secret of the Stole-III to finish off Clue 1. The cuff and heel of the second Afrika sock was knit today, and I’m half-way done racing for the toe. That’s only slightly more exciting than plain stockinette (3 x 1 rib).

Mid-day the knitting was put aside for a music rehearsal.  DD and another lady are to sing for a function in September.  My role is accompanist, artistic arranger, and sometimes-back-up singer.  It went well for a first run-through.

Once again, the most excitement in the house was a toss-up between Victoria chasing Casper up and over the sofa where I was knitting, and the Olympics.  Life is good!

    Yes, it was a good rehearsal, wasn’t it? I am so grateful to have you as a wonderful accompanyist (and backup singer) in a pinch.–DM? (Doesn’t stand for Danger Mouse, but I think it’s a pretty neat name for you anyway.)

    We had a relative with a pet goose. There was a rash of burglaries in her neighborhood, till the day her next-door neighbor reported seeing a man in the relative’s back yard, fleeing at full speed away from the goose, who was attacking him mercilessly. Get away from my human’s house!
