Before we head off on a long road trip with Pup we stop at the outskirts of our local marina to let her wander a bit and wear her out. Yesterday morning before our latest road trip to Lowes I found a baby crab in the marina parking lot wandering around on the asphalt. I scooped it up in a bucket we carry and we took it down to the water where it looked very happy swimming away. How a cute little baby crab got so far from the water I'll never know but I was there at the right time. That hot asphalt would have cooked that baby in no time at all.
Speaking of needing rescuing, I think I've hit my limit on this whole kitchen thing. After driving an hour both ways to pull out a drawer I want to just cover the whole mess up in plastic again and call it a day. I am so over trying to figure things out. We did order the stove. It may be here sometime in October but I'm not holding my breath.
The refrigerator I wanted would not even be in stock until January so we couldn't order it. It's hard to find one without an ice maker or one of those door thingys. We can't have any of that fancy stuff because of our well situation. Our water would ruin those things in no time at all and that is with a $4000 water softening system.
Things back at home on the knitting front aren't going well either. I spent all that money on one ball of Chroma in Sandpiper with that additional $5.99 shipping only to find out it had purple in it. No where in the description did it mention purple. It was supposed to be all olive browns, whites, grays and blues but I see purple. Do you? It's going in the orphan Chroma box with all the others. I can't use it in the project I needed it for. I'll have to keep looking.
I will say that Knit Picks beat Amazon getting yarn here. I ordered this extra skein of Patons Kroy in Woodsie the same day as the Chroma and it beat the Kroy here by two days but even these simple socks haven't been playing nicely. I spent the morning tinking them both back because somehow I miscount the instep stitches and the toes were crooked.
It's just as well that my knitting is not playing nice at the moment because I have too much homework to do anyway. The Mister is waiting for my decisions on the cabinet door handle hardware and the faucet so I'm going to spend what little time I have to myself again today looking at pictures of kitchens and reading reviews. Ugh.
