I went out first thing this morning for blood work, got home before noon, and checked results again, before lunch. Still counting. That is so impressive. What a massive turnout. We should be proud that so many voters are registered and voted. And since there is no winner yet to be declared, I ate lunch and went to tying on more ends.
I kept at it yesterday until six bouts were tied, leaving only five to tie today. I started at one, and was done at three. Why all the moaning? I need to find a slightly taller chair, to keep from leaning on my bad shoulder. But, I haven't, and to tie five bouts was a Herculean task for me.
Look at that wonderful tangle back there. Not to worry, it all straightens out.
It's not magic, unfortunately. I go to the front, wrap six bouts around one hand and five around the other, and with the brake off, pull hard. Damn hard. Every knot must come through a heddle and then through the reed. I tied it to the apron, and left it to rest overnight. A lovely new warp, ready to weave.
I cannot believe it's Friday. So many days have passed since Tuesday, and no days at all. Ann called me Wednesday morning. She needed to talk, go through her day at a Wisconsin polling station. Listening to her was wonderful; such an experience, even for an experienced poll worker.
I need to call my friend Cathy, but not before the weekend. She's an overthinker, and right now no amount of thinking will change the votes on the uncounted ballots. I'll give the election another day to straighten out.
As for the bad attitude of the president, please. The world is watching.
I believe we did a magnificent job at voting. Now, we must roll up our sleeves, wash our hands and defeat Covid.
