Five Percent

I feel like such a dork. I was annoyed yesterday with all the people who asked me what I'd voted on. Didn't they know there was a primary? Apparently not. Five percent voter turnout.
At least I didn't spend my morning trying to get out the vote like this guy. There is someone dorkier than I am. And working a hopeless cause (Well, Coleman did win, but it was only five percent of the population, so how much does it mean?)
I love these chairs. Boy-child had fun on the giant one recently.
And these are some of the decorated balloons that we've had hanging around for a while. I finally threw them out the other day. I don't know who did what because I wasn't here for most of the decorating, but I enjoyed having them around - they always made me smile:

I threw them out because I was cleaning. We had friends over. Our friends' nineteen year old son is going on a bike trip. To Argentina. Not kidding. If he makes it, he'll try to stop at our place in Chile.

I the meantime, I got a sock commission today - Pagewood Farms Yukon. One hank for the requested socks and one hank for myself. Yum! Love that yarn.

Speaking of knitting, I went to Knitters' Guild last night for the annual State Fair program; got to hear all of the comments and see all of the beautiful submissions from the fair this year. The woman who won the sweepstakes was particularly heartwarming. I was joined by a friend who's never attended before and it was fun to see the program from a new perspective.

Tonight was book club. There were four of us and we'd all read the book. Amazing. (We read The Outlander by Gil Adamson - a fun read). I took a bag full of socks with to work in the ends - everything I've finished since the weather got warm. I hate weaving in the ends. I made great progress and everyone will have new socks this winter.

Finally, after working on a seditious project at the office with very little hope of a positive result (I'm just that stubborn when I think I'm right) I found out today that we did, in fact, convice The Powers That Be that we were right. Vindicated.

Is that the big green chair by what used to be Honeywell headquarters on E.26th St? I always liked those.

Good work on convincing the PtB!
