I've Had A Busy Day
Today is Veteran's Day. We don't get it off even though we are a state institution, we still gotta work. But I took the day off as one of my floating holidays. I've been movin all day and now it is time to kick back and drink some coffee and knit and spend the night chillin.
The Tall Guy (who also took the day off to rake leaves) went this afternoon to do the grocery shopping that we normally do on Friday nights. It was nice to get it done before dark and before the crazies come out on Friday night to also do their grocery shopping. I treated myself to another creamer, Pumpkin Spice while we were shopping so that is today's flavor of the day for my coffee.
I didn't have much a yearning for coffee this morning, but now that I have had a full day, a pot sounds good and so it begins.
First thing up this morning I finished another scarf for the Girls Holiday Bash. This would make #45. I'm planning now on 50 and then I am stopping. This one is from the new Debbie Bliss magazine but I used some Encore from the stash for it.
Anyway, at one time there were so many knitters, that no one could see the yarn for the people. But we managed to do just fine and people just let you in to fondle and put some into the bags they provided for us. It's a cute little shop and I will be going back. They have great hours for us working people, two Knit nights and 4 pm Saturday closings. I can see myself making a stop there after my regular scheduled Saturday knitting.
Did I mention that they are only about 5 minutes from my work??? You know where I will be taking lunch somedays.
Next I was off to Morton to pick up some more Madlinetosh Pashmina for the Cassis I am knitting. I'll show you more on that later next week as the sweater progresses.
After Ewe-nique Yarns, I had lunch with Char and Linda who coincidentally were at Morton too. We had a nice time talking knitting and catching up a bit. As I said earlier, the Tall Guy and I got groceries and ---
The rest of the evening is mine to relax, drink coffee, get caught up on some t.v and knit. Life is good and I am enjoying it.
Hug a Vet today if you can, and I don't mean the one you take your animals to.
