Yes, I meant to write something else this past week, but the weekend got in the way. We’ve been having intermittent problems with our dryer. “Intermittent” as in “the drum turns whenever the hell it feels like it, but the heater always works.” The belt is fine and the motor appears to be okay; we discovered this after Evil Dad had the thing apart and upside down for half an hour. So…a new dryer is in our future. Supposedly, the dryer is okay to use, as long as the fire extinguisher’s handy. I’ve been hanging clothes outside this morning…
I’m also more than halfway finished with a couple of things; a Reduction tote bag from the latest Crochet Me, and a couple of dream pillows for the Etsy store.
Have I told you about the Etsy store? No? That’s probably because there’s currently nothing in there. Not really. But there will be soon. If anybody’s interested, I can show you how I make mine – they’re pretty easy and straightforward.
Other than that, we’re getting ready for Halloween. I’ve just heard that there is no Halloween celebration at my daughter’s school (Halloween’s a Satanist plot, didn’t you know), so I’m wrestling with keeping her home that day. Maybe having some of her classmates over for candy and cupcakes. There aren’t a whole lot of kids who do the Candy March/Trick-or-Treat thing anymore – I think we had two or three last year, counting School Girl and Dad. This weekend, if not sooner, I need to find the decoration box and start putting stuff up. At least on the inside.
