me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

End of Week Observations and Musings

1. It is "winter" in my MerryLand, yet today I saw 2 women wearing flipflops. I wished I was wearing flipflops too when the thermometer reached 64 degrees.

2. Overheard comment from a tiny girl to her mother in a department store: "Can we go home now ... I miss my dog."

3. A segment of a recent talk show dealt with how men and women show their devotion for one another. The expert offered that women are likely to verbalize, while men show their love by doing things. DH made a wicked-good Scrambler for me this morning ... and it's a weekday.

4. I spend much more time reading/thinking/talking about knitting than I spend in the actual process ... and I'm starting to come to terms with that.

5. In today's "heatwave," we opened the kitchen window and I immediately felt a huge sense of loss for my dear old kitty, Ethel, who used to sun on that ledge when the window was opened. She died this past August at 20 years and 4 months of age.

6. The saying goes "you only get one chance to make a first impression," but I think it's a valuable idea to leave yourself open to reinterpret the first impression you receive -- particularly if it was clouded by second-hand information. It may come to pass that a really special person is revealed where you first saw only negative traits.

    :thinking warm thoughts for Ethel!:

    I don't have any cats since I'm allergic but I LOVE to go past windows and see cats either watching passersby or sunning themselves.

    I like thought makes you think. Or at least it made me think.

    I love it when DH cooks tasty things for me - like the shrimp I posted about earlier this week.

    I'm always seeing college girls wearing pajama pants and flip flops. Not cool.
