I just wrote, and then deleted, three new posts today.  Once was about the Oscars award season, another was about my daughter’s senior year, and the third was about the struggle with my mother’s living arrangements and her acceptance of her limitations.

They were all crap; so, I tossed them.

I will try again, and hope the proper muse hits me, soon.

On a positive note, I am quite giddy because I found out a new yarn shop is opening LITERALLY down the street from me (not even three whole blocks away).  My husband and I were walking down to have a beer at the tap room (LITERALLY, four blocks away), when we saw the new tenants putting up their banner.  I almost hyperventilated when I saw the images of yarn and notions up there in full color!

We used to have a very, very good yarn shop in town, but it was nearly a 40 minute drive away from me.  Economically, an area cannot support very many yarn shops because they cater to a relatively small percentage of the overall population.  That shop closed when the owners decided to retire; another sprung up not far away from the original, but it does not really appeal to me.  Plus, the drive.

So, I am very, very happy.  My husband, not so much.   I did ask the bartender what he thought of a knit/crochet night at the tap room.  I realized that most of the people I know who work with yarn, also drink beer.  It’s the perfect demographic.  We have the money to spend on beer, but aren’t likely to cause problems with the bouncers. Am I right?

    I would fit nicely into your Venn diagram… beer and yarn. Two of my favorite things. I have two baby blankets that I need to finish. Perhaps I need more beer?

    You know, I could add a “people who love photography” and refine that intersection even more.

    Thanks for the encouragement, katy – I’m still upset about the whole situation!
