Back to Work...Back to the Real World!
I did manage to finish these - The Lavender Ginger Socks, yarn from Fiber Space, purchased on my President's Day trip to DC to visit my Big Sis. This yarn (Knitting Fever Indulgence in 6-ply) is a heavier fingering, almost sport weight, and I'm looking forward to wearing them this winter...(that's my toe-up vanilla sock with picot hem on the cuff)
The house is tighter now that the windows have been weather-stripped and caulked and the shrink-wrap applied...there were other projects completed (a new cabinet for the sewing room!) and much laughter and casting thoughts back to younger days. Fifty-five ain't so bad, I suppose...
But The Tonk (and The Meezer, who spent most of the weekend hiding, or skulking around the edges of every room in the place as she tried to be a part of the activities while also being the most unfriendly Siamese imaginable) are both thinking that maybe I did something I shouldn't have.
I went back to work. They were really happy having me IN the house for 4 days. Tonk especially - he had many happy hours chasing crinkle balls.
And now, I'm gone again.
Oh well, Tonk. I'm sure there's another holiday upcoming (oh...maybe I shouldn't tell him the next one his "Auntie Lynette" will be here house/kitty sitting while I'm at National Capital Cat Show!)
Shhhhhh....he's grumpy enough right now.
