There are no words to describe how incredibly soft this yarn (Adorn sock) feels. The pattern, Stephanie's own Desert Shadows Scarf, is a pleasure to knit, made only that much better by the hand of the yarn. It's looking more and more like the tropics to me...wish I was there.While not technically full last night, the moon, giant orb in the sky, delivered just enough of the ludicrous to make me aware of its presence. I started my night with a visit to the other side of town to help out my colleague on a minor patient problem. I saw the moon in the east, hanging low, huge and pale in the late afternoon sky, and (since I drive alone) said out loud to nobody in particular, "uh, oh." As I approached my destination and the end of that 25 mile drive, I got a call from my triage nurse telling me to abandon that visit and drive 45 miles west to see a different patient in more need.
I decided right then and there that the moon was going to wreak havoc on the night.
Being a dutiful nurse, I turned around and half way to my new destination, got a second call from my triage nurse who said that since I was the only one free, I just had to put up with her tonight and move my car in yet another direction. She would deal with the other visits by phone, but the third could only be handled in person.
Yes. It was that kind of night and there is only one way to deal with this: Surrender. Complete and utter surrender. We can't fight what is both unseen and bigger than us and if it meant I was going to drive in circles, well that's the way the cookie crumbles.
Though it seemed to drag on interminably, my evening shift did eventually end which allowed me to work on my scarf for a bit. I hit the sack rather late, said a little prayer that the 7th, with the full moon in all its glory, would be a little kinder.
So far, though it's early yet, the day is not too bad. It started with an email that my contingent position has been approved. Feeling no particular need to dawdle over my decision, I immediately sent off my acceptance reply.
Perhaps the moon will be gentler tonight, but I'm no fool. I will be filling my gas tank before my shift starts.
