That is how many days there are between me and the deadline for the 2015 North Carolina State Fair. Thirteen days and I don’t know how many granny squares.
When I was a child a span of time just one day shy of two weeks seemed interminably long. Now that same span of time, viewed through my middle-aged eyes, seems impossibly short.
