esterday I tackled Acts 3, 4 and 5 of The Tempest. Now I can work outside today and not feel guilty. I’ll have to take another pass at the script in a few days, but the bulk of my research is done. That creamy crochet? A special order for my blogging friend, Meri. Have you ever visited Meri? She’s very talented and I’m proud to say that I am the lucky owner of some of her creations. Crocheting these scarves is such fun, but especially so when I’m making one for a dear friend. If you have a special order in mind, don’t hesitate to ask. Meredith just completed a special order for Belinda – a flower scarf in her favorite University of Tennessee colors.
There you go, Meri, a close-up of this pretty color. I’m using the bamboo/silk yarn for this so it will be especially soft. It’s taking me a bit longer than usual. I’ve been crocheting so much lately and I’ve also been digging and wielding a rake and shovel. This has caused some soreness in my right hand with swollen fingers to boot. Don’t worry, I will list it on Etsy for you in a couple of days!
Don has been an actor for 40 years and has done a lot of televison over those years. Actors get residual payments – that means that when an episode is re-aired, a certain percentage of the initial payment to the actor is calculated and a check goes in the mail. If it’s a first or second residual, that paycheck can be a nice chunk of money. Sometimes, it’s not so much.
No, you’re not seeing things. One cent.
When I said in yesterday’s post that we were saving our pennies for a new mattress, I wasn’t kidding. As Don says, it cost more to mail it.
Let’s see, how many penny quotes does this conjure up?
A penny saved is a penny earned. – Benjamin Franklin
A penny for your thoughts. – Proverb
Penny wise is often pound foolish. – French Proverb
If it’s a penny for your thoughts and you put in your own two cents worth, then someone, somewhere, is making a penny.
There are more, but Steven Wright’s is my favorite, so I’m going to quit while I’m ahead.
By the way, I have a book review up today for Prime Suspect 3: Silent Victims. Just scroll down one post.
