No Voice

It's what you've all been waiting for--Sharon with no voice! As I tried to answer the phone first thing this morning, imagine my surprise when all I did was make weird noises! Luckily the caller was someone I knew and did not think I was pulling a naughty prank! It has not improved, but I am hopeful for tomorrow. Or at least by Monday when I have two classes! I guess everyone will literally have to hang on every word if all I can do is whisper!

Must be being mute has made me more productive. I made a pair of pillowcases, finished two 6 inch blocks, made seam guides, cleaned my Featherweight, knitted on a shawl and on the green hat. Did I tell you the continuing saga of the gray hat? When I saw it again about a week after its return, it looked like it had grown dreadlocks! Of course, I pointed that out right away and said, "Don't tell me!" Sure enough, the same dog got hold of it and ripped out most of the repairs I had made before. My very firm response was "I'm out of that yarn and I'm not going there again!" You have to understand that I absolutely hate to mend and especially knitted stuff--I barely know enough to get the stuff made to begin with, much less mend it later.

On another note, have you noticed on television that many of the female cops, CSIs, agents, etc. seem to wear really high heels and very low necklines? Is there a point--other than ogling? How do real law enforcement women feel about how they are being portrayed? I couldn't even get out of the car with high heels, much less chase a perp down a dark, garbage-strewn alley. Shall I just say "Film at Eleven"?

I took the rabbit pics earlier today--just outside my sewing room window. The entire rabbit family is making inroads on my shringle bush--but the snow is so thick they are probably having trouble finding other things to eat. Okay, that's my story....

That's all for tonight. Enjoy the silence while you can.



  1. Hi Sharon, No voice! Oh my! That is definitely the worst nightmare for a teacher. I hope that your voice is better soon. Try to keep warm, and THINK SPRING! Hugs, Jay

  2. A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour..............................................

  3. Even with no "voice" you could 'slip" a carrot or two out the window for the bunnies--they are soo cute---you might want to pop over and visit my site tonight or tomorrow--you find your name there???
    Hugs, Diane


Don't be shy! Leave me a's so lonely without hearing from you!
