Got in some good stitching time on Cynthia's birthday present yesterday. The pattern is moving along really well, so I should have no trouble having the set done by April. Today is UFO day so I'm hoping to get 2 or 3 hours in on that.

What was a good night's sleep got interrupted by a leg cramp, so I still feel a little groggy today. It wasn't a terribly bad one, but it still means waking up, getting up and walking it off.

Provide, Provide

The witch that came (the withered hag)
To wash the steps with pail and rag,
Was once the beauty Abishag,

The picture pride of Hollywood.
Too many fall from great and good
For you to doubt the likelihood.

Die early and avoid the fate.
Or if predestined to die late,
Make up your mind to die in state.

Make the whole stock exchange your own!
If need be occupy a throne,
Where nobody can call you crone.

Some have relied on what they knew;
Others on being simply true.
What worked for them might work for you.

No memory of having starred
Atones for later disregard,
Or keeps the end from being hard.

Better to go down dignified
With boughten friendship at your side
Than none at all. Provide, provide!

Robert Frost
1874 - 1963
