Regular threadingwater readers may assume from the lack of posting that it’s been a slow week. Not so.
Weeks of holiday prep, house guests, baking, gift-making and twice-weekly physical therapy for my screaming elbow tendons, have come to a halt. That means it’s time to get:
- back to work
- back to knitting
- back to reading, and more reading
- back to weight-lifting (ouch!)
- back to cooking healthful meals
- back to the addicting “Top Chef” and this season’s cast of mediocre, often tiresome, but still entertaining talent
And the best part of the week may have been an accidental moment in one of those faux hair salons that are really fronts for selling salon brands of hair products, where I observed two 20-something, Latina employees listening intently to an in-store radio broadcast of Nancy Pelosi’s speech to Congress. Yeah, I was ready to check-out with my selections, but joined them in listening to the end of Pelosi’s remarks instead.
“Thanks for having that broadcast on in the store,” says me.
“I just hope things start to change,” said one of the sweet young things.
