Thursdays Are For Working

I worked today and spent the day getting tax information together. It doesn't seem like it should be a tiring activity, but it was. I think I might just be too tired to knit tonight. Here is a picture, obviously not take today (no snow) of one of the lovely horses who reside at Pray Road Stables. Those who know me well get quite a bit of amusement from the fact that I work at a stable. Even though I don't really have much to do with the horses, I am occasionally called upon to hold a horse while something is being done to him or her. I'm getting much braver than I used to be, and since working there have learned what awesome, intuitive creatures horses are. And I have also learned what a valuable help they can be in therapy. Isn't he handsome?

My exciting news is I have a domain name and a very, very basic web-site, which is www. This is all thanks to my lovely sister-in-law Lisa who knows a lot more about such things than I do. There really isn't anything on the site but links to my blog and etsy shop, but I've been thinking about having my own website for so long I find it very exciting. And I'm sure it will be a piece of cake to build the site. Especially if I ask my 5th child Dave (whom I didn't give birth to, but I think spent more time at our house when the kids were growing up than Travis did) to design it since that is what he doing for a living right now.

Last night our knitting group met at the library. There were a whole two of us there. It's kind of frustrating because we have been meeting for about a year and a half and we don't really get anyone new who comes for more than a week or two. We wonder if it's us (of course that couldn't be it), or the fact that we meet at the library, or maybe just that everyone has such full and busy lives that they don't come. I think people would be more likely to come if we met in a yarn shop. It was great when Judy's shop, Liberty Fibers, was open and she would have open knitting one evening a week. It was an interesting group of women who would come, and I miss that. Of course we three who meet at the library are interesting too, but it would be nice to make some new knitting friends.

OK, I give up. I must stop typing and go to bed. I have a cat sitting on my arm as I am typing this and I'm finding it a bit challenging. I think he is indicating the need for some attention he missed since I was at work all day. Here's a picture of the handsome boy. Any guesses as to what kind of spinning wheel is in the background?
