Just a note about Magnificent Obsession, it's one of my favorite classic movies. Yes, it's cheesy and yes it's unrealistic and the acting is very far over the top, but it's one of the first classic movies I saw as an adult and responded to. An Imitation of Life was the second. The 1959 one. With Lana Turner. But, I've seen at least three versions. Oh, the drama and personal conflict.
My obsession has become my red sweater. I've been knitting in the morning. I've been knitting at noon. And, I've been knitting in the evening. This weekend, it rained all weekend. There was about an hour yesterday morning, when I could go out and walk around. So, I knitted most ofboth days. And, I still can't see the end. I've lost count of my rows, but am not needing the count to keep up with the patterns anymore. And, I've learned another new way to take mistakes out and re-knit them without taking the whole row out. Yesterday, I saw the words bind off this row and thought I was nearing the finish line, then I saw "repeat these rows 7 times" in the paragraph before it.
Okay, that's it for me today. I'm afraid I might start to mold, it's so wet and humid and miserable out. We're so spoiled to beautiful sunny days and I'm sure I'm not the only person in town that's ready for it to stop raining. Everybody be good. Become obsessed with something you love to do today. Just not too obsessed.
