Kathy is thrilled that the Chicago Cubs have made it to the World Series - and frankly, so am I! To be honest, I have nothing against the Cleveland Indians, but Chicago is one of the places I have lived - both as a child and then for a couple of years once The Tim finished grad school. So I have a "home" connection to Chicago, and I hope I haven't just jinxed things for them. ;-)
So anyway, let's answer this week's queries.
-- What is your favorite fabric to wear?
I have to say flannel in cold weather, and cotton in warmer weather. They are comfort fabrics to me.
-- Who woke you up this morning?
My bladder. I woke up ten minutes before the alarm, having to use the bathroom. This is actually surprising, because 99% of the time it is some combination of the felines in the family ... and a lot earlier. (ugh)
-- Last time you had to turn off the announcers and turn on the radio for a sports event.
A few years ago, when I was watching a Phillies game. Usually though, I leave the TV and rant. Pleasant, no?
-- Last food item you ate?
I had a slice of leftover pizza for dinner.
-- Last item you had knit regrets about?
My Multnomah Shawl. I screwed it up when I got to the lacy border, but didn't realize it until well into it. So every once in a while, I rip back a few rows, hoping that when I get to the last row before the border, that a) I'll realize it, and b) I can "get" it when I try to knit the border again. It's really too bad, because I had zoomed through the shawl, loved knitting it, and couldn't wait to wear it. Grrrrr.
-- Last time a family member said to you, "When are you going to finish that thing?"
-- Are you still working on a New Year's resolution?
I don't make resolutions, really, I just try to decide on some goals and intentions. But I am continuing to work on one in particular, because I got sidetracked over the summer. I'm doing OK with it, so I'm glad about that.
-- Last great amateur photo you saw?
My niece Liz took a photo of her son Zach and another niece's daughter Penn this past weekend when they were all together for my brother-in-law's birthday. It's both adorable and beautifully composed.
-- Do you know someone who is an organ recipient or donor?
Yes. A former neighbor had a kidney transplant a few years back. And both The Tim and I have marked ourselves as organ donors.
