It's been a long time coming but there's finally some rain today. This is not the kind of rain I remember. Rain that came down hard and filled the streets from curb to curb. Rain that soaked the ground so that it squished when you walked on it. No. This is really just a drizzle but it's caused no end of excitement in the local media. Even when there was only a twenty percent chance of rain there were headlines proclaiming the possibility. Now we have it. Well, really it's just enough to cause havoc on the freeways as drivers, unaccustomed to wet roads, wait until the last minute to slam on the brakes and then find themselves spinning out of control and crashing into one another or a nearby concrete wall.
I'd love to stay home today and knit but I have to go to a wedding this afternoon. I hear it's good luck if it rains on your wedding day. I expect that was just made up to keep people from complaining. Anyway, my nephew is getting married this afternoon. I can't imagine why they planned a wedding for four o'clock on a Friday afternoon. I'm only going to be at A Stitch in Time until two today and then I'll rush home and get all dressed up to go to an event that I don't want to go to.
I finished a couple of mittens yesterday and am only about a foot away from finishing my Parallelograms scarf. And I got started on another scarf last night but I think I'm going to rip that and start over as it looks a bit loose. Two steps forward and one back.
