Well, I don’t know if much was solved or resolved during the trip, but Alicia and I had a lot of quality talking time. We parked in Seattle and walked around the Belltown area and the Seattle Center. *Mundane moments of levity provided some much-needed stress relief and we found ourselves laughing at the **silliest things. I do not know if her fiance’ will seek professional help or if they will stay together. At the moment my concern is that she knows she isn’t alone. She was safe when I left this morning. Thank you all for your concerns, they are much appreciated, but I assure you that I would never knowing go into a dangerous situation. I’d called her several times during the drive to make sure I wasn’t walking into a battle zone.
During our blustery walk we happened across So Much Yarn. I picked up some Cascade 220 in a heathered blue and a solid navy blue for the Ribby Cardi. And Alicia bought me a copy of Knitter’s magazine which features some wonderful patterns using suede yarn. I’d like to try that sometime.
I came home to discover that my industrious husband had cleaned our garage! He’s really a good guy all in all… even if he does spend many hours playing Enemy Territory! At least I know he’ll never have another woman, there isn’t time.
*People dress their dogs up in the strangest clothing sometimes. I understand covering your dog’s feet during inclimate weather, but really people, do animals need hats to match their ugly sweaters? We witnessed some canine “What not to Wear” and the owners leading these critters around should have been ticketed by the ASPCA. Apparently these poor souls are childless with too much money and time.
**Patchouli smells bad and does not hide the fact that you need a bath. And just because you have a saxaphone with an open case on the sidewalk doesn’t mean that people are obligated to pay you as they pass. Translation… you need lessons and do NOT follow me for 1/4 mile blowing that damned thing… I’m still not giving you any money.
Oh, I almost forgot! While we were walking around Seattle we happened upon the statue of Chief Seattle. I was delighted to see that some kind soul had wrapped a yellow scarf around his neck. It must have been a knitter!
