Yikes! Thursday already. Here are my three things:
- There has been no knitting for at least a week. It is making me crazy!! Hopefully this weekend (though I have so much I need/want to get done in that 2-day period). I AM taking knitting to FL on Monday…my plane ride will be longer (though I may opt to put the knitting in my bag and just have my Kindle with me) and I have free time during the meeting days. Win-win…I hope. Planning (as of now) to take Close to You which I don’t think I have even looked at since sometime in August!
- I have been reading! Last week I started 220.127.116.11. by Paul Auster. I love the premise of the book, but honestly it is just way too long winded (and repetitious at times) for me. I found myself falling asleep each time I picked it up. So I have sent that back through the airwaves of Overdrive. I may, in the future, try the audible version, but for now I don’t have time for books that I can’t get through. Two nights ago I started The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa and it is wonderful. I’m such a numbers freak anyway, but I love the writing, I love the story. It is FAST reading.
- Work continues to be very busy, though yesterday I had a break for my annual appraisal with my boss. Of course, they are done on-line and I have to do a self appraisal as well. Bill (my boss) and I rated me identically on every single point – LOL. The best part is he is putting in a raise for me above the norm and has already had approvals from the powers-that-be to do so. YAY! It is wonderful to have a boss who understands and appreciates you.
So there you have my 3 things. In other news, Colin will be over for dinner tonight. It’s quite warm (again), so not sure we will have a fire tonight, but Fletch is grilling hot and sweet sausage on the grill and we have some good crusty bread and I’ll cook up some mushrooms, onions, peppers and sundried tomatoes to go with.
As mentioned above, the weekend will be full. Laundry to do, cleaning, grocery shopping and packing. I’m getting picked up at 5 a.m. Monday for a 7 a.m. flight. That is way too early…I probably should have booked myself to fly down Sunday (but I didn’t want to give up my weekend). I’ll be back sometime Wednesday afternoon.
I’m trying to catch up on blog reading, but it’s been difficult. And I’ve been pretty lousy about responding to comments on my blog. Do know that I appreciate them all. When things calm down a bit I will have more time to devote to my personal endeavors – LOL.
