|Lots of Garter Stitch|
THE most boring knitting project ever. One hundred & eighty stitches per row of garter stitch in white. Ugh. Actually, it's Ecru. Ecru makes it even more boring because there's a tiny bit less concern about getting the knitting dirty. It's a required project though, so I'll press on.
My most exciting action today has been getting my hand knit winter socks washed, folded and put away. New Fish kept me company while I did the folding.
New Fish is still unappreciative of his plastic plant. He still does the "Something touched me!" panic thing when he bumps it plus, I think it may be shredding his long fins/tail. The plastic plant is going to get tossed tomorrow when I clean out his bowl.
|Joyland by Stephen King|
I have been able to get some reading done this week. I'm now 84% through Joyland. I'm enjoying it but it's not the typical Stephen King book. Despite the numerous similarities to my work life, there haven't been any scary parts. There's been lots and lots of foreshadowing, but I haven't gotten the first cold chill and I haven't had any major freak-outs while alone and in the dark at my own amusement park. Not yet, at least. I keep waiting for it though. The amount of foreshadowing plus the lack of scary clowns factor keeps me on the edge of my seat. I keep waiting for something, something really big and horrible, to suddenly jump out and terrify me.
