Tuesday unconscious mutterings.

  1. Textile :: mill.
  2. Ginger :: tea.
  3. Strength :: through love.
  4. Keeping :: up with the times.
  5. Beard :: cuddly. (I love beards!)
  6. Pregorative :: (I could have sworn this word was misspelled, but google tells me it is right. Duh.)**
  7. Closing :: house.
  8. Podium :: speech.
  9. Rationale :: rationalizing.
  10. Secondary :: infection. (Gee, I wonder where THAT came from. Not.)

* * * * *

Work finished yesterday (yay). Smokey wants to spend a couple days on the North Shore this week, since our planned vacation there in August was sabotaged by his slowish recovery. And then on Friday…

Minnesota Knitters' Days!

Soxanne and I will be roomies at this weekend knitting retreat, and another woman from Knit Night Orphans will be attending, too. Last weekend I googled the site of the retreat…and gasped*.

Homepage
Villa Maria Retreat Center is in Frontenac, MN, almost on Lake Pepin (if you are not familiar with the Midwest, that's where the Mississippi widens into a lake).

The guest teacher is Lucy Neatby, who happens to be one of my idols. I cannot wait!

* See what I did there? I broke my own rule about not stealing pictures from other sites. Bad me.

Edited to add:

** And DUH again. I read it as "prerogative", which I thought should be "perogative". "Pregorative" is definitely wrong. Thanks, Rebecca!

    Wow that castle looks amazing! Nothing less would do for a knitter’s retreat….accent on the “treat”! hehehe. Hope you and Smokey have a great couple of days R&R. I know you’ll have loads of fun at the knitting retreat. Think of us less fortunate(sob,sob). I’ll be spinning and knitting and dreaming!

  2. Soxanne says:

    OMG look at that place! So glad you posted the borrowed picture.
    Can’t wait…

    Oooh, that looks WONDERFUL! Have fun — both on the North Shore and at Knitters’ Days!!

    Hmmm–when I google “pregorative,” google immediately jumps to “Prerogative,” which is, of course, a real word. “Pregorative” also doesn’t appear in my on-board dictionary, which has so far managed to find all kinds of real, arcane words. I’ll consult my highest-powered authoritative sources later . . . . . πŸ˜‰ But I think your original response was right: “pregorative” is a misspelling.

  6. Jen says:

    Here I was thinking pregorative was “written and drawn before the time of Edward Gorey.” I was getting ready to use it, all casual-like, in conversation.

  7. Cindy G says:

    Have fun! The castle and Lucy Neatby sound like a *totally* winning combination.

    I’m glad I arrived late because I decided it was a typo/misspelling. *L*
