Macrophobia Monday

macrophobia ~ fear of prolonged waiting

So . . . I had an unintentional knitting marathon yesterday. I started working on the yoke of my Fair Isle sweater and I couldn't seem to stop myself. I took a break to add ingredients to a pot of chili I had in the crock pot; I took another break to start supper, which wasn't much of a break because it involved a lot of prep work; and I took a break to eat supper. Other than that, pretty much all I did Sunday was knit.

As I knew it would, we finally ran out of perfect autumn days. It started getting a little cooler towards the end of the week, and from Friday on it's been dark and gloomy. Not too much rain, but it's been warming up again so it's been a little on the humid side.

Hopefully it'll be bright and sunny again for Wednesday. I'm having a small, pre-NaNo planning party and it would be nice to have it out on the deck. :-)

Once again I got off to a slow start last week, but picked up speed as the week went on. I even managed to get this week's installment for Water written ahead of time. And if you didn't like last week's chapter, you're probably not going to like this week's either. ;-)

Blog Stuff For the Week:

Tuesday: Number twenty-one in my series on the Major Arcana of the Tarot is The World. This is the final card of the series.
Wednesday:
A new hump day hunk for your viewing pleasure. ;-)
Thursday: Chapter 86 of Water. Well, we know there was at least one casualty of the tsunami, but will she be the only one?
Friday: Okay, it's 1 a.m. on Sunday night as I'm typing this and my brain is fried from over seven hours of knitting (I was following a Fair Isle pattern and you really need to pay attention to what you're doing). Anyway, I have no clue what the Ramble will be this week. Maybe something Halloweenish.

And speaking of Halloween . . . Don't forget to check out Alex Westhaven's Month O'Screams! There's lots of great, sometimes scary, stuff for you to check out. Leave a comment for a chance to win a great prize!

Okay, see that Craft time? That's without including my knitting marathon yesterday. Can you tell the new season of television has started? And I hate just sitting in front of the TV doing nothing, so I either knit or crochet while watching.

All my other times last week pretty much stayed the same until we got down to Fiction. I was feeling rather inspired last week and got this week's episode of Water written on Friday. And I've been working on the rewrites off and on. I confess, however, that I'm lagging behind on the journal entries that are supposed to head each chapter. I guess that's something I'll have to pay extra attention to this week.
