I'm really confused with the world right now. It seems that sense has been left behind and violence becomes the only solution. It scares me, and it makes me scared for my black neighbors and colleagues and students. All I can think of to do is to be extra sure that I send peace to everyone I meet and let them know that we are travelers together. I really don't know what else to do.
In other news---the news of the cozy world I can try to control--I was not sleeping the other night and thinking about knitting, and thinking in particular of what I wrote for Kathy's Quora--that I wish someone would knit me a fisherman's knit sweater. I recalled, then, that I had bought a pattern and yarn for a sweater that (I think) Stephanie had knit a few years ago. I knew exactly where the yarn was (and found it), and found the pattern book fairly quickly too.
AND in other other news--I think I have tennis elbow---my left elbow has been a bit sore and I read that 'gripping' activities can exacerbate it. So between weights and paddling, I am a Major Gripper. I need to learn how to relax my grip, particularly with paddling, and so I'll take a few days off of the weights and see if I can heal it with aspirin and ice. Today I did mat work for abs (oof) so that's fine. In reality, my abs need much more work than my arms and legs do, and mat stuff if optimum, just not fun.
Tim is off to see family for a few days so I'm flying solo this weekend and for most of next week. I wonder if my alpaca cria will ever be born?
