Purling Dervish

Now with half the Purling, and ten times the Dervish

Just another day on the farm

Apr-18-2013 By Stacey



I used to want sunny days so I could play on the lake. Now I pray for rainy ones so I can get a break.*

So far today, I’ve bought yarn and drank coffee. Don’t let the excitement overwhelm you.


Knitting!  It’s a WIP, but it’s all I’ve got.  I was actually able to cast on for something over my birthday weekend break. Between decoupage, winding sock yarn, dyeing and avoiding psycho, manic, drunk, rebel yelling neighbor dude. Thankfully, he is Nacogdoches’ neighbor and not mine.

I told her to grab her gun if he ever tells her that he has some nice chianti chilling. I almost did it myself when he started talking about doing shots of some 190 proof stuff he had stashed.

He reminded me of my former Harbor neighbors. Kind of. At least they stayed on their own property. Well, and they never left gifts on my porch in the middle of the night.  O.o

I can honestly say I will never forget my 40th birthday.

What are y’all doing today?

* I didn’t mean to rhyme that. Swears. I do what I can, when I can, but it is always exhausting. And fun.

  1. Marilyn Said,

    Rain days are the best…unless you have to work in the rain…then it’s not so much fun…
    It was your birthday?? Happy Belated Birthday!! 40. You youngster! 😀

  2. Angie Said,

    Decoupage!!!? I want pictures! 😀

    I drove up and back to the DM’s. In very windy weather. Zzzzzzz.


  3. Cheryl S. Said,

    We always want what we don’t have, don’t we?

    What kind of gifts were left on your porch? Inquiring minds want to know…

  4. Cookie Said,

    I don’t even remember 40. Whippersnapper…

  5. Kitten Said,

    Yer neighbors and friends’ neighbors are scary.
    Rainy days rule. But I would screw it up by going outside and playing in it, and then I’d feel guilty and have to do my work. I wonder, if I live someplace that gets lots of rain, how long (if ever) before I got sick of it?
