It has been some time since I posted. Sisters' Weekend was marvelous, though very tiring - lol. My flight up to Providence was delayed due to mechanical problems, but only for an hour. Not bad. The flight was smooth, though crowded. The entire weekend seemed terribly busy - more so than usual - lots of running around and errands, out to eat, out to shop, prepping for a party Friday night (20-30 folks came over). My massage on Friday was perfect and we managed to get some shopping in - I found some cute tops, a pair of great ankle boots and a fabulous pair of shoes!!
They are flat and comfortable!! We spent quite a bit of time seeing Mom (the other girls Mom and my 2nd Mom) who is 88. She is having some major surgery this Friday, so prayers and fingers crossed that all goes well. Despite some major health issues, she still gets around and loves to cook. She made clam chowder and lobster rolls for us one night that were to die for!
My flight home Sunday was early. Fletch was staying at Colin & Mailings (they are on vacation and we are on cat-feeding duty for the week) and decided to just hang there since he knew I would be tired and just wanting peace and quiet. We ended up meeting for dinner at Stove & Tap on Sunday and then came home.
Laundry is done, but I don't feel as though I've caught up on sleep and relaxing. Part of the reason is that evenings I have been going over to feed the cats. It is about a 1.5 hour round trip in good traffic. That makes for a long day after working, but Fletch is going over every morning, so I don't want to ask him to do the evening feeding as well. Here are Talbot and Marcel (looking evil with those eyes!!) on Monday when I went over.
Not too much has been going on knitting-wise. These dragonfly socks have to be the slowest socks to ever be birthed! I started this sock in the middle of July and this is as far as I have gotten:
And there is still a second one to be made (or even just started!!). I'm a little over half-way through the foot, so hope to finish it up this week and cast on for the second. Most nights I seem to be too tired to knit and I'm too busy at work to bring it along for lunchtime knitting. I also want to cast on for the sleeves on my Juniper Top. One of these days....
I did finish reading Ordinary Grace and loved it. So well written and little nuggets of wisdom to be found. I'm more than halfway through Being Mortal and it is just wonderful.
So...work is busy and I'm only working through next Wednesday (9/26) and then am on vacation till October 7th. I'll work that week and then the following week I am in Atlanta Monday - Thursday. Booked my flights yesterday and need to book a massage at the spa today!!
Our weather is finally clear today and I'm hoping that things will begin to dry out some. Wishing you all a wonderful day.
