What to do for fun in Utah

  • Check out historical events

  • How about The Battle of Wellsville, for example? What, you say, you never heard of it? Check out Laurel's site It's looks more entertaining than The Battle of Yorktown, where I think we only saw one horse. I can think of some more battles that might be entertaining to reenact in Utah, but I have a morbid sense of humor so I will not pass that on.

  • Watch rare meteorological events

  • Hey, we live in a desert here.

  • Knit

  • While I was sick for a week with every symptom a sinus infection can produce, I did not have enough energy to start anything new,* but as a trapped audience of one, I was able to weave in ends and block some things.

  • Shop

  • I wanted to stop at a new (to me) yarn store on the way home from the doctor (the doctor prescribed it, having been there on the weekend) but my head was threatening to explode so I had to go to the pharmacy instead. But when I got home there was a present from Webs.


    Araucania "Ranco Multy" sock yarn, color # 306

    I have solemnly promised myself not to start any more brown projects until I finish Paul's brown socks. I wonder where I hid them when I got sick of brown last spring?

    *I actually did start the Stripy Vest for OE, in a burst of guilt-ridden, medication-fueled mania. It is nearly finished.

    I am casting on brown socks for Husband today. Go find Paul's and we can knit them together.

    Hey, thanks for the heads up on the book The Painted Veil, I have it on request on audio at the library, if it stinks, I'll just quit listening! And I was so moved by your post XYZZY, I don't want to sound trite, but it was beautiful at all you gained but so sad at your loss.As a mom, my heart aches for you, but I, too, know the joy of dicovering I'm not stupid, like I thought I was all these years, only took me 45 years to believe in myself! Thank you for sharing your story, it resonated with me.

    Have you been knitting your(Paul's) brown socks? I was 1/2 way thorugh Husband's size 13 foot when I found a mistake I could not live with. Now I am back picking up the gusset.
    How are Paul's socks coming along?
