God Is a Woman

How do I know?

Yesterday when it was sunny and in the seventies, I made a joke about going to the beach instead of motoring ahead on the christening shawl.

This morning, it's in the mid-forties in Chicago and raining.

Alright already, I'm knitting.

I had an uneasy feeling that wasn't a good thing to joke about.

Bonne chance! I'm sure you'll see the sun again soon.

Stephanie said...

"Mother Earth" dude.
What were you thinking?

Kim said...

beach...yeah..thanks for that one. Off to find the handknit socks I put into summer storage yesterday.

Paisley said...

just keep knitting... just keep knitting... just keep knitting....

chris said...

Ha! Yeah, she'll get you every time.

Grumpy said...

Franklin, can you give me a link to the charity knitting Dulon project you mentioned. Suspect I can't find it because I'm not spelling it properly. Many thanks,

Lee Ann said...

And her name is Murphy.

Murphy has many, many laws, and dude, you done broke one of them. They're predicting snow for tomorrow night.

Okay, the snow is probably not your fault.

Martha said...

That's right, Franklin, it's not nice to fool Mother Nature!

Rachel H said...

Damn right.

But did you go to the beach yesterday before they start shutting them down due to bacteria. I always love that yearly drama. Oy!

She just knew how much nicer it is to sit inside on a day like that and knit, so She was "helping".
You can always come visit Tucson again if you need sun and beach. We gots no ocean, but we gots lotsa beach.

I'll bet your sister put in a word.

Beach, schmeach. Sand inevitably gets into your book, knitting is an absolute no-go. All that tanning will make you wrinkly before your time. Really, Franklin, knitting is soooo much better for you.
Love,
Mother Nature

PS now get to work!

What does the weather have to do with proving that God is a woman? I think your arguement proves that God has a sense of humor or that He wants you to work on Christening shawls.

Alwen said...

In my house, cold and rainy (or freezing and snowy) is called "knitting weather".

Lisa said...

oh Franklin.....

If only birthing a baby was predictable. I'm sure that you will prevail, even if the baby decides to make an entrance sooner than expected (albeit later than the due date already).

Mother Nature made sure that God was a Woman before she accepted the job....allies and all....you know how that is....

Karen said...

Same thing here. Warm enough to want to just sit in a kiddie pool yesterday, and today it looks threatening and no sun. I might even have to turn the heater back on.

Jenny said...

Please keep knitting. I'm cold. Last night the air was on and now it's 60!! Please keep knitting!

Susan said...

Considered the possibility your sister's pregnant with God? Hey, it's rumored to have happened to nice Jewish girls before this. Knit, man, knit!

Michael said...

The weather has been affected as far as West Coast Canada! It went from 26 yesterday to 16 and quite windy today.

Mary said...

In actuality, your sister is God.

Jenn said...

You are fantastic! Fantastic. Incredible. Wonderful. Talented. Period. :D

Rain ? It is your Sister who is giving birth - God is definitely a MAN (lol).

Tracey, in MI said...

Ummmmm... yeah. But- it's not like your were gonna run away for ever--- and your COULD knit at the beach...

FYI- I'm in Michigan-made no tempting jokes and it's crappy here- today too;)

Keep knitting- it's turning out beautiful.

It was suggested that the 88-degree weather here Monday was *someone* stoking up the fires of Hell in preparation for a certain someone who died yesterday - he got there last night and the weather went back to normal.

Kristen said...

We experienced the same type of weather shift; however, I'll take 56 over 86 anytime. Your niecephew will appreciate the sacrifice.

Terri Lynn said...

I'm thinking maybe God could be a knitter . . .

FiberQat said...

Ha ha! You thought it's spring! Fooled ya! Neener neener! Now get to work, slacker, or I'll sic a flurry your way.

And, I would like to point out, it is now raining here, and supposed to continue doing so for a while. Watch what you say.

Bea said...

Still no baby?

Riin said...

A couple of days ago I was wearing shorts and sandals. Now we've got a frost advisory. Well, at least I know whose fault it is.

Pheelya said...

*laugh* Looks like she gotcha! :)

Tell Sister Sue to hang a new curtain. I thought my Polish grandmother was whacked on this one, but I hung a curtain in our family room and 24 hrs later...James.

Greetings from South Africa - just want to know how your sister, Susan is doing? No baby yet? Best wishes, Alida
PS Dolores rocks!

Or join with Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens. There isn't a God... it's "just" physics. (Makes all the stupid things religions have said about sex, women, gays evaporate, by the way.) Happy knitting, just the same.

Woman, absolutely:)
