Saturday musings

by barbara waters

A work in progress from one of the Soldotna Ravelry knitters.

I wasn’t able to get together with the Soldotna Ravelers today as I had an earlier coffee date with two very dear friends. We met at the same location - Mugz - and sat and talked and laughed and cried and drank our coffee. It was a very nice meet-up and I am blessed to have such great friends as Ms. B and Ms. S. Thank you, ladies. See you again soon.

They have music - looks like about every weekend - in the lounge, too. I’m a bit disappointed because it looks like a colleague of mine (work related) was featured there tonight. I enjoy her music, but it is usually a “chance” occasion when I get to hear it - and, sometimes it is a near miss - like tonight. (Yes, I’m pouting just a bit)

Daughter Lessa, who writes for 451Press also, (Watching Rachael Ray, Watching Survivor, and Big Brother Craze) also has another home online. Please go and read her snarky account of life on our own little Wisteria Lane. Maybe it’s just me - and maybe it’s because I know the folks of whom she speaks, but I about spat on my screen as I read it. Of course, it might be funnier to some who actually watch the show - I’m afraid I’ve never seen an episode of Desperate Housewives. (does that make me truly weird?)

In other news - hubby and I went to see the new Indiana Jones flick last night - we weren’t able to do so last weekend because the showings were all sold out. This week, I bought tickets on the way home from work - we went out for dinner - and then went back to the theatre and saw the film. I was told by the manager that the BIG seller this week was Sex and the City. Well, call me silly, but I would rather watch Indie!

We enjoyed it greatly. Yes, Harrison Ford is older, but then so am I! I thought that his stunts were reasonable (for an old guy) for the most part.

There were a couple of scenes I could have done without - no spoilers, BUT - I am a bit afraid of heights (being vertically challenged and all that) and I have a high gag reflex. When you’ve seen the movie, if you don’t know what I am referring to, feel free to leave a comment or email me and I’ll share.


Have a great weekend!

    I’m sorry, but I snickered when you said you went to talk with Ms B and Ms S. The Indiana Jones movie was pretty darned good…I can’t see what the Sex in The City movie will have in it that wasn’t already on HBO. Moviemakers seem to work some of these things to death don’t they?

About Knitting Passion

Is knitting really a passion? On THIS blog it is - for all who come here. Blog entries will be made up of patterns, photos of in-progress or completed work - off the wall discussions about whatever tickles the author's fancy (Survivor Knitting anyone?). This can be as much YOUR blog as it is the current author's. Questions will be entertained and answers sought diligently. Comments are always welcome - and information ALWAYS appreciated. Will there be stories and pictures of the stash of yarn or the duplicated knitting needles? Will there be more off the wall ideas for knitting? Will there be original patterns or freebies cited? Only the dark of night and the author's amount of caffeine or sleep can determine that.

Ready? ONE - TWO - GET SET - KNIT!
