It’s a knitting kind of day

Hello everyone!  Yesterday started out as a day off, but I got called in to work from 3PM to 7PM.  Not too bad at all, especially when I could sit and knit!  Not too bad at all.  And, since I am trying to finish my May Day Swap Socks – 4 hours of knitting time with no housework yelling at me sounded like just the thing!

And, I got sock #1 done!  Sock #2 will be cast on this morning and I will knit away on it as I work on the house a bit too!  And, tonight is knitting with the S.A.B.L.E ladies – the high point of my week!  What an amazing group of women.  They are so positive and cheerful.  I am truly blessed to know these ladies.  It is so fun to watch them helping and encouraging each other!  There is some spinning going on, some knitting going on, lots of laughter, and an abundance of love.  I am eagerly looking forward to spending my evening with those ladies!

On the work front, things are still going wonderfully.  I truly love my job.  And, I am finding new reasons everyday.  Yesterday, I got on the scale and much to my surprise, I have lost almost 10 pounds since starting!  Holy cow people.  That equates to a lot of walking!!  As my feet tell me after every shift.  I have gotten a different pair of shoes and they feel good, but I am still working on getting rid of blisters.  I am seriously hoping that 3 days without 12 hours of walking will help cure that!!

It also seems that spring has finally sprung here in my little corner of the world, with a big SPROING!  Birds are singing,  breezes are blowing and we have a week of 70 plus degree days.  I could not be more thrilled!  This does not bode well for the tulips for Tulip Time, however.  Warm days and warm nights make for a short tulip season.  And, we have rain in the forecast for the weekend.

I will leave you with a view of the sunny yellow forsythia that is blooming in my back yard.

Have a great day everyone!

  1. Aren’t forsythia magical? Last night, at dusk, I drove on a narrow street that was lined with them. The bright yellow against the lavender sky was just breathtaking!
