Or in this case, two:
Last night when I went to bed, I had my day all planned. I knew everything I needed to do, and when I needed to do it. My son had his bookbag and band folio ready for his return school, but when he got up, his mildly annoying cough had become more persistent, and plans had to change.
So I called the attendance office, rescheduled the orthodontist, and got my son in to be seen for the cough.
While we waited, I finished work on the dark chocolate cookie pictured above, and once we were home, I finished the iced sugar cookie to the right of it.
Looking over the assortment of yarns available to me, I decided that the icing on the sugar cookies might be a vehicle for working in some additional colors into the cookieghan that outside the spectrum of browns, so I used a yellow and and orange that I had in my stash to see how they would look on the sugar cookie, and I made a vanilla icing for the top of another future iced oatmeal cookie while I had my 4.0 mm hook out:
I then took the sugar cookie with pink icing:
and tried it with the yellow/lemon icing:
and the orange/orange icing:
I had planned to work on the beach-blanket-to-be today, and I had imagined that I would make astounding progress that would amaze even me, but sometimes two cookies and three icings are all that a person can do, and sometimes, we are lucky to work just one granny square, just one row, or even just one foundation chain, but the truth is crochet and the creative impulse behind it make any day better.
