There is not a lot of knitting going on. The muscles in my left shoulder (the hand and arm I use to hold my needle) seized up on me and gave me a tension headache. Fortunately, the girl I see for massage pulled out the headache on Saturday but I dont want to push it.
At least I have freaking cool neighbours.
Friday two of them (boyfriend/girlfriend) had a little cook out. I chipped in with food and beer as did one of my other neighbours. The three of them kept me up till 3 AM. I cant remember the last time I stayed out so late. We ate, drank beers, walked up to the pub, played ping pong, hung out, talked, etc. It was a lot of fun.
The girl in the boyfriend/girlfriend pair has a washer and dryer. The laundromat closest to me is gone. Courtney has said she’d be happy to do a load for me once in a while. Thank God for small favours. She offered to do a load on Sunday if I left it on her back porch. I got busy and forgot then left a load yesterday morning. My bag o’clothes was gone last night, they were not on the line, usually she’ll put my bag on my back porch once they’re done. Not today. I left for work thinking they had been taken. Not that the person who took them would end up with much, mostly dirty underwear, undershirts, and some t-shirts. They were on my back porch after I got home today. Yea! I wont have to worry about seeing a homeless man in my neighbourhood wearing my underwear on the outside of his pants.
They want me to go camping with them in August. I havent been camping since I was 18. They want to hike up to Eagle Creek. I’ve been up there once. Hiked six miles in to Tunnel Falls and back. Oregon is a state with a lot of natural beauty. I hope it works out. It sounds like it’d be a lot of fun and with no city lights there will be a lot of stars to see.
