Hello and welcome to the blog. In the U.S., today is a day when we can all agree on one thing. A sigh of relief is warranted after the end of the vicious political commercials that have inundated the TV and radio airwaves.
Today is the “midterm” election. Since we are not choosing a U.S. President, midterms are usually mundane, however this election is anything but. Control of the U.S. Senate hinges on 6 seats, one of them being from Iowa. Long time Iowa Senator Tom Harkin (sponsor of the Americans with Disabilities Act) is retiring and the fight for his seat is epic. The battle should be over soon… Then we’ll have a few days break before the feuding all starts all over again… Enough about politics though…
The original plan was to go fishing today but sadly, the only thing being cast is a voting ballot. I can’t recall very many times being too tired to fish or camp!
Monday I had stayed up late and put in some recliner time with the cats and a few skeins of yarn. Potholders / trivets were needed for the trailer so I thought this cute little fish pattern would fit the bill. The problem is now I don’t want to use them!
With the cold weather moving in, it’s back to working on home projects like this as well as putting in some extra hours at the job. There will always be other days to fish… It seems nice to have some balance and “down time” to work on other things. I suspect in the coming days there will also be more pictures of cool new potholders made. Too many hobbies… too little time!
Take care and thanks for stopping in today!
