Friday short list   5 comments

This week has been long – after a few weeks of vacation, holidays, storm closings….to work a full week is hard! Add to that, it is tax training week, so I am working 5 days. Ugh.

As a result, my Friday list is pretty lame, folks – sorry about that!

I will be in Bangor at Husson University for one last day, learning all the ins and outs of this year’s tax preparation. I suspect we will get done by lunch time, which is good. I’ll head home after it is over, and just pass out on the couch! My brain is tired.

I may toss in a load of laundry, of course. And I will knit.

This year I have not been as productive in class as usual – only 1 hat and half of a sock! I blame the weather (of course!) because training was cancelled on Monday, due to rain and ice. That meant that we had to cram the day in somehow, and because I teach the volunteers how to actually operate the software, I could not just sit and relax during the lectures, but had to prep for the afternoon labs.

Screened porch is coming along, I will try to post some construction photos. Not sure how contractor has been able to get things done in the crazy weather, but this week, I see real progress on the things that require good weather – like the roof!

I stopped at the bead store after training today and got beads to make some more of Laura Nelkin’s designs (click here to see the one I will be making), similar to the ones I made a year or so ago for nieces’ Christmas presents – I saved the instructions, just had to track down beads I liked. Found some tonight, so when I start another project, it will be a necklace or two.

That’s it folks – slow list. Saturday will be more fun, I promise. Or it will be cancelled for rain. 😦

  1. A day involving beads is never boring!
