Frivolous

While Linda of  A Slower Pace has been working on her sock and baby hat knitting, I have been up to a much smaller project.  I guess you could say I made two little hats, but they are much too small for a baby or even a doll.


Each of the bathrooms has a mirrored medicine cabinet to the right of the sink and a larger wall mirror over the sink.  I would sometimes open these cabinets with a bit more vigor than was really called for and I would hear a disconcerting "CLINK."  Since I am well known for my propensity to break glass things, I decided to take a proactive step.  So I made little covers for the knobs on the medicine cabinets to cushion any future blows.  Sometimes I just astound myself with my creativity.

I just read Star Island by Carl Hiassen, a Florida writer.  His book, Sick Puppy, which I read the first winter we came to Florida made my laugh until tears came out my eyes.  Actually, his books make the same points about greed, corruption, and the shallowness of our celebrity-driven culture that have been made in more serious types of books, but so much more fun to read.  This one did not disappoint.  So maybe a book that can make the reader both think and laugh is not so frivolous after all.

  4. Do you think you could crochet something that would make the door not crash when Husband goes out (while I'm still sleeping) and slams it behind him?
