An unexicting day day

I’ve been sick all week! Fortunately, not too sick to enjoy ill health, but sick enough to not do much besides knit and read. What more could one ask?
Yesterday was my first day really out and about, and I had a date with the dentist. I planned to do lots of fun things after my appointment, and take lots of fabulous pictures, but I guess I wasn’t feeling quite that spiffy yet because I had a sort of lackluster afternoon, and my pictures are definitely lackluster as well. I met these two of Seattle’s Finest, and asked them some dumb question about what they were doing there. The one of them explained that they were on a coffee break, and that if an emergency happened, his partner (the human partner, not the horse) would handle it.

This horrible dress was in the window at Nordstrom's, and I am wondering who would ever wear it! It looks like it was knitted by someone on drugs. Actually it looks a little like my first knitting attempt - the shawl for my Grandmother that I knitted in Sister Hilda Marie’s eighth grade class. At the time, I thought it was a pretty cool accomplishment, and Grammer pretended to like it. But needless to say, I never saw her actually using it. It did have its own unique trapezoidal and holey personality. I would probably find these qualities unacceptable in a shawl I knitted these days.

I will let you guess what the third picture is.

Are you feeling better now? I enjoy your blog very much for the knitting, the choir, the cooking, but do worry about you.

Thanks, Eleanor! I have been fine, but my internet connection has not.
