May 12

This weekend buzzed by me so fast that it all seems like a blur.  And it was incredibly productive – both professionally and personally.

Personally – I got caught up with the laundry.  You might not think this is a big deal, but this past tax season was so busy, that I was happy that we both had clean undies and socks when we needed them.  Between last weekend and this one, I got caught up, down to washing blankets and getting them put away for the summer.  I can find clean clothes easily now without having to rummage though baskets of them.  Goodness, it is good to see things hanging in the closet once again.  Also, I mowed the grass (2 acres), did the shopping and errands running, and cooked enough food to last for several days.  And I ran into some friends that I hadn’t seen for a while and that was just the icing on the cake for me.

Professionally – I packaged up and got ready for the PO many, many boxes of my sock kits that people have been ordering.  Thank you everyone!  You have taken me from “Does anyone like these besides myself?” to “Wow! People are really liking my sock designs!”  In fact, I have had to place another order for more yarn, because I only have enough yarn for 4 kits of the yarn for the Walking Through China sock kits.  And I have to thank the Yarn Harlot’s website for getting the word out on my kits.  Also, I have signed up several more people for the YARNO game, dyed many more shirts, bags, hats, scrunchies and show laces (and gotten them washed out and ready to be pressed and tagged) and began packing for the Kentucky Sheep & Fiber Festival this weekend.  I am really looking forward to that.

This is going to be a rainy, but busy week.  I have a class to teach tomorrow night, more cooking and packing to do, and off Sandy and I go on Friday to get set up in our big booth.

Scott and I celebrated our wedding anniversary yesterday.  What did we do? Well, he had to work (10-6), so I worked on part of what I mentioned above.  We’ve had better anniversaries, but at least he and I are in this thing together and that made it a good one.
