ALAS, POOR YORICK!

Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio: a fellow
of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: he hath
borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how
abhorred in my imagination it is! my gorge rims at
it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know
not how oft. Where be your gibes now? your
gambols? your songs? your flashes of merriment,
that were wont to set the table on a roar? Not one
now, to mock your own grinning? quite chap-fallen?
Now get you to my lady's chamber, and tell her, let
her paint an inch thick, to this favour she must
come; make her laugh at that.

Shakespeare, isn't he magnificent? I mean I LOVE the beauty of the spoken and written words during his time. Alas, Poor Readers! I haven't the talent to write the melodic symphony of words that Dear William was master of. Part of the reason I haven't posted in awhile is well...I wasn't feeling inspired. No one really reads me (that doesn't bother me so much as that it is a total waste of time if I'M the only audience because it takes me away from my knitting and sewing time - and really - I don't need to write this stuff for posterity or myself - it goes around and around in my head all the time anyway). And then there's the fact that I haven't taken photos of any of my finished "WORKS" either. "WORKS" - dontcha love that term?!! It makes any of us undeserving, so-so knitters sound rather like an ARTISTE!! Love it!
Anyway, so sans photos...I made Wendy's "recipe" for a GF tank in Gedifra's Wellness Color, variegated purples with a matching Dream Swatch for my Hula Girl.

I guess, my post is not TOTALLY sans photos - just no photo of the actual knitting. Just hoping no p*rves are looking at my girl here. People say she looks like her grandma, what'dya think? Anyway, so I didn't get any photos of the finished knits on or off the recipient. But - they turned out really cute. She's not so impressed with my knits. KIDS!

And since I'm posting about non-knitting stuff...don't I have the CUTEST 92 year young mama?



Prayer Request Update
The friend from church with thyroid cancer is undergoing radiation treatment. He chose to do it at home, rather than in a plastic bubble in the hospital and so he is quarantined. His family can't get near him. He had 3 types of cancer. Once he is able to go out in public again, he'll make another trip to the hospital to have a test to see if the cancer has spread. He and his family really needs prayer.

And I have an unspoken for one of my best girlfriends.

I also have a couple praises. HWFRCA interviewed for a new job and it looks like he will probably get it. It would be a raise for him but an hour commute one-way each day to "Egypt". But it's a less physical job than he has now. And I also want to praise God for my job and what will be happening with it soon! GOD IS GOOD!

Oh, and here is some shameless self-promoting. I recently became an Indepent Consultant with BeautiControl. See my beautypage.

Talk to you again soon and hopefully there will be actual knitting photos!

I'm here too. And Lynda is one of my "friends" through the blog world. Hey, I don't really have readers either.... It is mostly my on-line journal, as I'm a scrapbooker and keep EVERYTHING!

Alas, your mother and daughter hath similar taste in clothing. Ok, there's my attempt at speaking Shakespeare-ese.

Have a great day!

Saw your comment on Lynda's blog and thought I would stop in and say hello. I don't get all that many comments, but I love to get them. I guess it depends on the post I make.

Feel free to check out my blogs (I have 3 main ones and a 4th set up for a mitten KAL that I have started). I'll bookmark your blog and come back again.
