I'm back in the middle of it after a wonderful Sisters' Weekend in Rhode Island. The Fall colors in the trees really popped while we were there and the weather was perfect. Mid 60's each day and no jackets required as we ran from the car to Mom's apartment or stores, etc.
Mom (the other girls real Mom, my 2nd Mom growing up) will turn 90 in March and she is still doing well and living independently. She no longer drives and has to use a walker, but she cooked us a roast beef (or as we prefer to say, roast beast) dinner Thursday night and then made lobster rolls for us on Saturday for lunch. It was just such a joy to see her. I'm going to try to get back up there in March for her 90th celebration.
It was a really lovely, long weekend. I had not planned to take any knitting, but at the last minute threw the sock bag into my carry on bag. I figured if I didn't take it I would want it...if I did take it I would never knit. And that is exactly what happened! The plane was too small to be comfortable and with it being only an hour flight it would be time to put things way right after getting them out! Usually I am up in the morning for an hour or two before everyone else, but not this time (guess I really was worn out from work). However, there has been a bit of progress since I returned home. The first sock is now at the foot - gusset stitches have all been picked up. A few more rows have been added to the Canary Blanket.
So, progress! Hoping for a bit more later this week.
Work is still crazy/busy, but that should ease up after this week. I still have several spreadsheets I need to finish or create and then I should be done. Today is our Halloween party - a catered lunch and then a contest for costumes. I haven't seen anyone dressed up yet, but it is still early.
Meanwhile, I'd best dive back into the numbers so that I will be able to enjoy the lunch.
Linking up with Kat for Unraveled Wednesday. Head on over to her blog to see what she and others are making and reading,
