Took the half day off this am to recover from yesterday's travel. It's HOT here. We have to use AC, can you imagine it!
I've just been to WW (and am down 1.6 lb. over the last 2 weeks) - apparently one doesn't need to count points in the magic land of Songbird!! No, really, the glory of being away from home is that I don't seem to need to do late night compulsive eating as I do at home. (Think about this. ..or, just go live with Songbird all the time...!!!)
Now at Starbucks for a little lunch-coffee and then to work.
Dogs very very happy to see me and entranced by their rawhide pretzel treats.
I knitted several dishcloths while there. Very satisfying and easy pattern I can do without thinking. Blogging and knitting together, very companionable.
We did go to a gorgeous knitting store and I bought self-striping yarn for a pair of socks - my first! and needles. And SB loaned me instructions. The yarn is a glorious blue and goldy yellow and white combination that feels very Maine-y to me. The blue is the den slipcovers where Sam and Molly recline; the gold is the ragweed on the side of the road; (which, while allergicky, is very, very pretty); the white is the sense of peace, peace, peace in Songbird's presence.
I'll post pix of my progress as I go.
So grateful I got to make this trip and take the down time. And meet the family and other friends I did.
Now off to work where I have MANY THINGS to do in preparation for next week (student pickup on the weekend and orientations in the week).
Just heard from my Mom and her cataract surgery went well...on right eye, which was by far the worst one. I'm hoping that this will greatly improve her eyesight, and also turn her eyes back green, the color they are SPOSE to be. ..they are blue now. (But I'll take just the improved eyesight! and I imagine she would too!)
Loves to you all! What have you been up to?
