Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Rainy Days and Mondays

Rainy days and Mondays do not generally get me down. I love rain, especially since the year started out very dry. A lovely misty day, with green dripping leaves, is not a day I find depressing. And having been downsized from full-time corporate America *almost five years ago, Mondays are not particularly gloomy anymore, either.

*When you lose your job on "9/12, the day after 9/11," it is indeed very perspective-y, as a friend of ours phrased it.

However, when my brand-new, week-old uninterruptible power supply starts beeping that "The power is out! The power is out! Oh, woe!" and abruptly shuts my computer down as I am attempting to approve a message on one of my Yahoo groups, I do get a little surly. Especially when the power is ON, dang it, would you look, you ninny! The power is on, I say, the lights are on, the music is playing! Sheesh.

And let's not even talk about attempting to upload pictures to Blogger, which is often an iffy proposition to start with, when the @#$%%&! power supply is shutting down the computer, what! Not A-gain!

Ahem. Anyway. Sorry for no pictures today. Sock heels have been decreased and I hope to do the increasing rows of the heel turn tomorrow. Weather is supposed to be sunny. Knock on wood that new power supply behaves and I don't have to call technical "support".
