I'm sitting here at work waiting for our chart room to open up so I can get some charts and do some fairly mindless paperwork. Gotta love Fridays.

After reading the Yarn Harlot's blog yesterday, I feel bad. She is sick with a cold. She sounded miserable. There were over 170 comments on how she could treat her congestion and survive a plane flight. It occurred to me that she could say, postpone this trip and take care of herself. I, and I am sure a lot of local knitters, would be disappointed but we would live. I suggested such in the comments. I would rather have her come when she feels well and is at her best than have her run herself into the ground to make a public appearance. I checked this morning and so far, it looks like she is still coming. We are going over early. It is 80 degrees here and supposed to rain all afternoon and evening. If there is some kind of line, it will be miserable. I have a mostly finished pair of monkey socks to work on and a new pair of mock cable socks to cast on so I am good. Kate and Emily have their knitting so I guess everyone is ready.

Now, to get this pesky work out of the way.....

It's absolutely pouring here. Is that what's headed your way? Coming down in sheets, it is. I hope you won't have to be outside in it.

Enjoy yourself. Remember, this is an adventure. Relish the unexpected.

Amy, all the local weather stations have predicted thunderstorms and heavy rain for us in the afternoon and evening into tomorrow. We've probably managed to catch your storm.

And there's always work in the way of what you want to do for fun. Yucky charts!

Hope it all goes well for you and the Yarn Harlot... travelling when sick is no fun.

I know what you mean...it seems rather selfish to hope for someone to come in spite of an illness. But it sounds like she survived the flight and was well-cared for at Juno's house. And I suspect that a trip to Rhinebeck might be part of the attraction for The Harlot! It would be for me... :)
