Well, at least on the highest point in the lower 48 states. Tom called me early this afternoon from the summit of Mt. Whitney (elevation 14,491 feet). How cool is that? Before he left, he had said something about calling me from the summit. I was amazed that he could get a cell phone signal there. The transmission was pretty bad; most of what he said I couldn't decipher. But I did catch that it was a good hike.
Even though it's kind of nice that he could place a phone call from a remote place, it's also sad, too. There are now very few places where you can truly escape from it all. Of course, you can always choose not to the use the technology, but that fact that it's there is enticing.
Our cat, Jezebel, is not very happy that Tom is gone. Perhaps it's because he's the main feeder. She's been a bit subdued and not very playful. I suspect that she'll perk up when he returns.
After I ate my very delicious ginger chocolate chip cookie from Lola Cookies, I finished the Milanese Lace Scarf, with just over two yards of yarn left. I need to weave in the ends and block it, which I'll do on Saturday. After Tom returns with the camera, I'll post a picture. I think it turned out well. I couldn't memorize the stitch pattern, but it was easy to knit and easy to figure out where I was. Or more importantly, where the mistakes were.
This was part of my horoscope today:
Bargains and heavy discounts will help you feed your piggy bank, and that's a good thing -- you need to put a little more effort into your rainy-day fund. Something big is coming up and the extra cash will help you become a part of something exciting.
Hmmm...could that "something exciting" be my very own yarn shop?
