Today is my birthday. Yesterday would have been my father's. We used to have cake together. When I thought of him today, this song, by Tennessee Ernie Ford came to mind. Now, Roger could carry a tune and this is the song I remember him singing most. I don't know if he sang this particular song because it has a catchy tune or if because that's how he felt - probably both. If you have a moment, listen.

Today, I am taking knitting time for myself, but please don't tell anyone. If they find out, there will be raised eyebrows. You see, there are quite a number of other things I should be doing instead. But this knitting time is much needed and well deserved. I have finally started a scarf I posted about many moons ago (you can see it here) and so far it is "easy peasy". We'll see what happens after I finish the 24 points required for the border. I will say that the yarn is luxurious! I have to find out if it is available in pink. You know who loves pink. And sparkles.

Oh Yeah! (Inside Joke)

Yipee! You're started on the scarf. It's going to be beautiful -- just look at those lacey points!
