Friday short list

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. it’s my own rule so that I actually finish things. 🙂 My mom asked me yesterday “Do you have more than one project going at a time?” I could tell by the tone of her voice that she either does, or wants to. 🙂

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
