Only posting once a week doesn’t feel right but it keeps happening. I do read all your comments and keep up with my reader, but don’t seem to find time to actually write. Tsk tsk.
This past week has been a blur. One night I said to A “I sure am glad THIS week is over!” Very sad does not begin to describe how I felt when she told me it was Wednesday!
Work had the crazy ramped up when a huge RFP came out with a deadline less than a month away, and smack in the middle of my vacation. Boss says we are going for it but he has some details to hammer out. Including possibly hiring someone to write it. Can we meet next week? That gives me an effective time line of 2 weeks. I can’t see it happening unless hammered out details are really good. Or he really does hire someone. Time will tell.
Last weekend we had a dry day, I started painting the shelves!! Of course then the humidity came back and so it wasn’t until last night that I could work on them again. Progress is being made, although the snails are leaving me in the dust.
I made lots of progress on the baby sweater, but then realized the baby would be three before it fit, so ripped it back and started over on smaller needles, down two sizes. It will likely be too small now, but heck, it’s quick, I can knit it again.
This weekend I really have to get out in the yard, and I think Sunday afternoon I will be able to. Tonight and Saturday I will paint, do some light housework, bake some treats for knitting. Sunday morning we go to my SIL to celebrate her birthday in the morning, I hope to have the afternoon clear for chores.
Getting excited about the vacation that seems so close yet so far! Three online knitting friends are coming to Maine and we will all go to Knit Maine (www.knittingandyoga.com), then they have an air bnb for a couple of days so I can show them all about, and take them yarn shopping. 😉 We are going to have a blast!
But first, I have to write a big grant, support our strategic plan consultants (ie take all their notes and schedule all their interviews), write the content for our new website, and make the program for a fundraising event that will happen before I return but for which the organizers don’t have all the sponsors’ ads yet. At least I remembered to order the paper and ask for the copier to be serviced.
So close and yet so far.
