Isn't it ironic that both the words Thursday and thoughts begin with the same letter? That cannot be a coincidence, at least in my intellectual faculty. Actually, thought comes from the Old English thencan,
according to my beloved Webster's. Thursday has its origins in Thor
, Scandinavian god of thunder. So the words aren't exactly brother and sister. Good enough. But it cracks me up that the fifth day of the week, a time when so many of us are feeling fatigued after working hard bringing home the maple-cure smoke-backed bacon, has a dramatic, noisy connotation. Lightning! Thunder! Horizontal rain in your face! Bring it all on! In any event, Thursday may or may not feel quite that dramatic weather-wise, but it's definitely a time of anticipation. By that day of the week, I'm already thinking about what projects I want to work on that weekend. Do I finish the faux suede hat or the Simplicity 4124
top? Do both, and throw in a few minutes with the knitting needles? Or should I scratch all of the above and getting cracking with the crochet hook and the marker-bright orange Caron
Wintunk yarn on a last-minute Halloween cocktail hat? (I have the materials, which I bought last weekend). I like to think about what I will make. For me it's a time-out to explore that back drawer in my cerebrum that doesn't get pulled often enough. How about you? What hobby-related reveries will you be indulging tomorrow?
