A myriad of things need my attention today. A list maker I am not. I find it too organized, and in being too organized, too constricting. I know what needs to get done, I’m not that forgetful yet. (Still searching for the baby sweater skein of yarn I hid from the Yarn Rascal. And it’s been years since I’ve seen the box cutter I hid from The Skipper so I would be able to find it when I needed it.) But let’s not digress.

I have tech editing on a pattern for a client to do. I need to contact her with some questions. It’s a lovely pattern, that’s about all I can say right now. When it becomes available I’ll show you the pictures.

I need to get the pictures and videos off The Skipper’s cell phone and onto his computer. Not a small task as the phone has no drivers to sync it with the computer. The maker of the phone wrote me a small tome on ways I might be able to do this. Who makes a phone that can’t transfer pictures and video to a computer? Kyocera. At the time, I begged The Skipper not to get that phone. Now it falls to me to deal with it.

The zucchini are out of control in the garden. I have six loaves of zucchini bread stored in the freezer and still the zucchini are amassing on the kitchen counter. I have bought so much organic flour that the checkout person at the store asked if I was starting a bakery. Seven more zucchini appeared over night. I don’t want to develop a phobia, but I am starting to fear going into the kitchen in the morning.

My camera broke. Yes, little black plastic pieces, can’t repair those, just broke off. The Skipper’s remedy for everything that falls to pieces is duct tape. Here are 3 pictures it took before the little black pieces broke.

yellow sunflower

I love having sunflowers in the vegetable garden. They make me smile, and I don’t have to bake them into bread.

red sunflower

I love my Echinacea too, but they don’t seem to have done well this year.


The Yarn Rascal needs bathing and grooming, all of which I do. Since his access to yarn has been severely limited, he has developed a new talent: shredding. But that is another post entirely.

Also on the list that I don’t make of things to get done is knitting the sleeves of the baby sweater. The math is complete, now I need to find a block of time to sit down and knit. Yeah, right.

The afghan needs at least two more rows of motifs to make it 60 inches long. Why did I think that 10 rows measuring 5 inches each equaled 60 inches? Lucky me, I decided to measure it just to make sure it was long enough before I started the border.

Finally, food shopping for something to eat with the zucchini, and while it is embarrassing, I need more flour.
