A glorious long day of light! The Kid asked after bathtime, “Is it still day?” and it still was. Too bad I was a grouch. A few things caught my attention driving around working.
A car painted deep cherry red, shiny, maybe sparkly, with extravagant rims. Very pretty car. Hanging off the back – silver balls. No pretense what this car represents in the driver’s mind! Proportions were a bit off though.
Speed trap on I580 East between Fruitvale and High St exits – a satisfying sight.
Two skirts. A full skirt with good drape, in camoflage print, worn by a young woman walking with a friend. A traditional Central American cotton skirt, black with thin blue stripes, worn by a mother walking with two small children.
A two year old’s grimace when he sees me arrive at the house – “medicine no!” And how quickly he forgives me. A very cute kid.
And signing out my Kid from school in the afternoon, I used a red Cars pen with a red feather plume on top. I wish there was more sparkly and feathery stuff for boys. I wonder if the lack when they’re young induces more sparkly cars when they’re adults?
The knitting did not escape observation. I noticed the mitten is a gauge swatch disguised as a mitten. Time to find the 1.5 mm DPNs, and I hope they work.
A silly Kid story to end. The Kid watches Flushed Away these days. He told me Roddy would fly out his nose because he (the Kid) is a toilet and his head is full of sewer pipes. Oh, the visuals!
