Back to Work...Back to the Real World!

Back to work today, and re-entry is always hard. I took Friday and Monday off, to make a nice long weekend, didn't do nearly the amount of sewing I probably should have but there was company, and projects on the house, and celebrating the birthday, and ... and ... and ...

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.
(sigh)
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.

The Tonk is gorgeous, too! Have you been wondering what they get up to while you are gone? And,the real question, does he steal The Meezer's tear strip when she's not looking? (smile)

I am having re-entry troubles this summer, too, since only working 15 hours or so a week over three days. The other ones are often so full of fiber and garden activities that I need a rest! I love your new socks... so colorful and I have to try that picot hem next.

That looks like one grumpy cat!

Sounds like you had a productive and happy long weekend. The socks look great!

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
