If you are a daily blogger, let me offer a word of advice.
Never ever write that you plan to do something, anything. It puts a major monkeywrench in your day.
I foolishly wrote that I was going to write a pattern for a beret I had pictured. I set about re-knitting it and writing down the directions, only to discover that
1. I had no toothpicks (which I had plan to use as knitting needles)
2. The hat I proceeded to knit had two fewer mitered squares than my original hat. I didn't notice that until 4pm. Duh.
3. My deck workers arrived extra early, got a good start and then broke for lunch. It rained immediately, like a DELUGE, and never stopped until they packed up and left for the day at 1:30. Then the sun reappeared.

My one success of the day was washing the dishes. What a highlight.

  1. Funny you'd say that because I gave up ever blogging about my intentions/plans/goals/projects of the day for that very reason: it always gets messed up. I only ever mention what has happened. *That* is hard to change! Unless you're my mother and you're adept at rewriting history. LOL.

    Congratulations on washing the dishes. ;-D

  3. At least you accomplished something! We all have days like these.

    It seems like it would be very difficult to knit on toothpicks!

  4. Darn I just finished blogging about a plan for tomorrow :)
    Our design roads are always paved with good intentions.
    I'm still trying to get it together with some fabric postcards I've been "talking" about. And I still have not finished the quilts I was supposed to do over the summer for my girls :(
    Maybe I'm wrong in my thinking but did you not take photos as you were going along of the hat?

  5. I have certainly been there done that many times. You'd think we'd learn but I find myself making a plan nonetheless....LOL
    It's raining here in Central Texas. If I didn't have "sand" in my yard, I'd have floated away by now....well, here's to another day. Take care.
