8-pointed Star

Random stuff

I had a migraine either last Thursday or the Thursday before. I knew I should have written down the time and date in my PDA as soon as I got to work, but I didn't and now I can't recall when I had it. This was the first full blown migraine I can recall having in the past ten years, so I wonder what triggered it. I'm lucky in that all of my migraines have been strictly optical. (No pain. Just visual phenomenon.)

Yesterday jebra and I spent the entire afternoon working in the yard. He trimmed the shrubs in front of the house and pruned our beech. I raked leaves and chipped yard waste. Fifteen bags worth.

After working the yard and getting cleaned up, I came inside and relaxed on the couch. I did some knitting and watched an episode of Columbo with jebra and mbumby. While she was here, I asked her to model the hat I'd made the other week. It's child-sized and wouldn't fit on my head. She found it a tight fit, but managed to get it on her head. I also finished the market bag I made for myself. Pictures under the cut.

Today we celebrated an early Thanksgiving with friends. In a shocking turn of events, I was put to work in the kitchen. I peeled apples, then later the sweet potatoes. When I wasn't working with the peeler, I was either knitting or crocheting. I'm working on two more scarves. I'd hoped to finish the crochet one today, but I ran out of yarn.

Three more random things

Last night, on the way home from dinner, we spotted a coyote in Farmington. I'd heard they had returned to the suburbs, but this was the first time I've ever seen one.

Yesterday on the way to dinner, I dropped off three scarves, a hat, and earmuffs at Common Ground Youth Sanctuary. I also inquired about volunteering, but that's a back-burner project for 2009.

This afternoon, while running out to fetch lunch for the office, I popped in at the Michigan Humane Society and dropped off 14 catmint-stuffed toy fish for their kitties. I'll call back in a week or so, to see how well they worked out for/at the shelter. If they like them, I'll make more. I have a big bunch of catmint drying in our kitchen window and a baggie of already dried and crumbled catmint on the desk in my home office.
