The Cavalry Has Arrived!
The contractors are arriving to start the drywall work at our house, apres flood. Posting may be a bit spotty since one of the affected areas is the home office and there'll probably be a few days with no computer access.
Actually knit a few rows on Aran Poncho while at, of all things, a Los Angeles Kings hockey game! Mind you, all knitular activity was accomplished prior to the faceoff -- RockStar kept giving me anxious looks and finally couldn't control himself. "You're not going to knit during the game, are you?" he asked. "No, don't worry. I won't embarrass you in front of all these macho Kings fans," I replied. The tix were freebies, courtesy of my BIL. He assists in recording stats while his old hometown team, the Washington Capitals, play on the West Coast.
Made for a loooong day (didn't get home from LA until after midnight), but we got to show RockStar a bit of LA (Santa Monica), which he thought was quite cool. We dined outside at a cafe on the Promenade, where he was transfixed by a very talented flamenco guitarist busking on the street. Yes, dining outside in December. It's one of the nicest perks of living in Southern California. RockStar is transitioning from heavy metal to classical guitar (think Andres Segovia). It's quite beautiful to listen to, but the long fingernails on his picking hand are a bit disconcerting until you get used to them. All in all, a very nice day was had by all.
Happy Monday, everyone.
