Yesterday I was in Goulburn for work and it was COLD.
So last night I made a new beanie. This is beanie number 7.
Do you think I went over board with the buttons? No, I don't think so either.
Lucky I had a new beanie, because today was a CRAP day. I chaired a meeting for a colleague and I did a CRAP job at it. The meeting got away, and off topic and I just couldn't pull it back. It really wasnt obvious to me or anyone else that actually, I am usually rather good a facilitating groups and meetings and getting folks to play nice with each other. I am still sick with the flu, and I was tired and my brain just wasn't nimble enough to keep up.
I think the problem was that the meeting room was too warm for me to keep my beanie on. Because I reckon if I had been able to wear it, then they would never have gotten away.
Anyway. Sometimes I wonder why there are humans, and why I have to work with them.
And then I put on my new beanie, and drop in on my compost heaps to feel how hot and lovely they are even in this cold weather, and then I go out and feed the ducks and the chooks and everyone quacks and clucks and fluffs and all is right in the world.
In other news, the Grand Purl Baa Queen of Tea Cozies was interviewed on Radio National yesterday morning and she was WONDERFUL. Go Loani!!!!
In other other news, for all you ONCians, I have had lunch here at The Daily Pie twice and it is HEAVEN. You see, a sad thing happened a couple of months ago when Cedar Organics in Goulburn closed, and my source of lentil patties with organic salad and homemade relish was cut off. But then Helen and her team of gorgeous things opened up a PIE SHOP at Collector and well............everything is going to be just fine.
It is the COOLEST WARMEST FUNKIEST place ever and can you really go wrong with delicious homemade pies nestled on oceans of mashed potato, gravy and peas? I didn't think so.
There, I feel better now.
