We lost Internet, TV and phone again completely. The repair guys finally showed up, it took them about an hour to find two problems...good thing all the equipment is theirs because two whatchamacallits had to be totally replaced. So far so good, but Far Guy says "Don't hold your breath."
In our area of the boonies our only other choice is a Satellite Company that I hear is unreliable. ...so it is what it is.
The quiet in our home was horrid, I could hear the clocking ticking away in one ear and Far Guy snoring through his afternoon nap in the other ear. I finally resurrected the DVD player in an old computer and apparently played the Bee Gee's One Night Only too many times ...the last time I played it Far Guy started to sing Na na na na and he wouldn't stop. He put in an old Bob Dylan DVD which he quickly rejected and he embraced the quiet for a few minutes until he started.singing Bee Gee's songs just to irritate me. Well at least he was singing to me... :)
I got a number of projects done over the weekend. I finished up some hearts for a charity( Peyton Heart Project) I packaged them up to mail.
It was a perfect project for bits and pieces of scrap yarn. I would like to do more someday. For now it is a project I can cross off my list.
I have a few other new crochet projects that are rattling around in my head at the moment. I have decided that a trip to Hobby Lobby and the local yarn shop will happen around April 1st (two weeks after my last shot)...although yarn could be ordered online....I want to line up the colors and look at them in my cart.
I am still working on wasp nests using up all the grey yarn I have on hand. She who sees robins first dropped off a whole skein of grey yarn for me. I will have enough nests for the entire neighborhood and even a few to mail off to friends. The pastel mosaic scarf is almost done, and I have a cashmere shawl in the works too.
I have made absolutely no progress on the milk can project this winter. The rollags are stored in paper bags until I can figure out how to spin on that old wheel I have...I have a friend who said he could help me or maybe a cousin I could ask for help...next summer....after Covid...if there is such a thing.
Far Guy has his wood carving out...so far it looks like a bunch of holes in a piece of wood. Only he knows what it will be.
