Monday answers on a Thursday.

Best news of the weekend is was… I worked in our local party tent at the county fair as I do every year. We got more traffic through the tent this year, I think. People are engaged.

Do you remember Mexican jumping beans? I remember hearing about them, but I never had any.

* Does knitting a shawl sometimes feel like knitting a blanket? Yes, always!

* Have you ever gone under a tipped canoe and had a chat? Nope.

* Did you know horses like to eat peppermints? The list of things I don’t know about horses is very, very long; this one is #17.

* The last thing I was tempted to purchase, but didn’t… Yarn, of course, nearly every time I get an email from Webs or Knit Picks. I have been able to resist for many months.

* Are the new school supplies out yet by you?  How does that make you feel? Yes, they are out now. It always makes me feel like I should buy some and drop them off at the school. I live in a poverty area.

* Give me a detail…any  tiny detail of summer. When I opened the door to let the dogs out yesterday morning I could smell the hanging basket of petunias on the deck. Smells of summer!

*You are getting a box of yarn in the mail two  skeins ….what color/(s) do you want it to be? Two skeins of different whitish worsted; I am running out of those for my afghan (and since the consensus of my commenters the other day was that I need to make it another 10″ longer, I really need that yarn.)

Have you gone so far as to unbuckle your seatbelt and search for a lost hook or needle during a car ride?  (you are the passenger of course)  Of course I have, although since I always knit on circs it is usually a stitch marker or tapestry needle or scissors or ball of yarn that I dropped.

    I did not know horses liked to eat peppermints. I’ll have to pass that onto my niece – she has a horse… I haven’t been under a canoe having a conversation, but I was under one when my husband tipped it over. He saved the beer cooler, while thank goodness, some other people saved me!.

    lol I’ve had the chat under a ‘tipped’ canoe, but that was because my canoe partner and I had put a plastic sheet over it (on its side) to sleep under during a raining night on a hs trip. It was the best ‘party’ ever as we pulled out all the bits of food we had been saving and shared.
    Also our local state grocery store chain (Reasors) does school supply donation bags every year. They pre-pack the bags with school supplies and when you check out you can make a set donation and they set a bag(or as many as you pay for) aside to give to kids that need them. They do something similar every Thanksgiving/Christmas season with food for needy families. Living in a state that has cut funding to state resources including schools the last 3 years, it is the least I can do to help and convenient.
