Only Wednesday?

Good grief, this is a long week. Tough one, too. My bestest boss ever, K, told us he has found a new job, a good one for him, ED of an agency in the next county. While I am really happy for him, I am going to miss him tremendously. And I have no idea what the succession plan is. Makes it stressful. I hope that the big boss is making a great plan and lets us know what it is soon.

Today I decided to make a little photo book for K to commemorate his 30 years at the agency – an incredibly long time. I went through a ton of photos today, and found some good ones, but it makes me so sad. Not sure I will finish it. Funny thing was, after I had gotten a whole lot of old photos (pre-digital) I went down the hall and found a co-worker putting together a PowerPoint slide show of the same things! Great minds.

So I have not been in the craft room much this week. But I did finish a funny purple hat, and picked up the lace shawl I have been working on, on and off, for over a year. It is from Nancy Bush’s Estonian knitting and it is beautiful but not something easy to pick up and put down. I haven’t got much to go on it, so I decided I need to work on it and just finish it. Now I just have to figure out where I left off. 🙂 Friday is a “knitting day” at Mom’s, I think I will have to bring a different project to work on there, because I won’t be able to focus on the shawl. I can’t do ANYTHING but knit when I work on that – no chatting or watching TV. So I work on it evenings, and in the morning before work. But I can’t even finish a row in the morning, so it is slow going.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
