Last week was not such a great week at work.
Monday I hurried to get payroll out and do all the things I would normally do on Tuesday also.
Tuesday I was in a meeting in Seattle (had to leave the house just before 6 am to get there, only to discover that I was an hour early, and I got the times mixed up!) When the meeting was over I dropped into the LYS store over there to pick up a couple of things for Christmas presents, just because I was so close I thought I should pop in. I thought if I was fast I could get back on the highway and head for home and be there before dark… HA HA HA – I didn’t get home until 8 PM!!! It was a long day.
Then came Wednesday – the whole day was spent fixing a stupid mistake.
Now let’s talk about Poison Me Thursday… The building I work in leaks! I’m on the first floor so I don’t notice it unless I go up to the 3rd floor where they have the pretty blue tarps hanging from the ceiling. They have been working on the roof for almost 3 weeks and now that they can’t seem to fix the leak, they are going… it’s been raining here for a few days. Well, while this little obnoxious project has been going on they had to turn off our air/venting system and tape up the outside air intake. On this lovely day, they took down the plastic that covered our outside air intake and turn the system back on. However, they had a truck running all day taking the equipment off the roof, parked 10 feet from the vent. About 11 am I started getting a really bad headache and sick feeling. For the rest of the afternoon people kept coming in saying that it smelled like a garage in our office and that it made them sick to come in there. Hmm, I’m sitting in the back of our office right next to the air intake and ready to pass out, but does anyone notice? Finally they realized what they had done and turned the air vent off. I left work about 4, got home and layed down on the sofa and didn’t wake up again until 1 in the morning. Still a little sick feeling. My hubby couldn’t believe that I came home and didn’t eat or knit!
Friday was a much better day. I had a mammogram appointment first thing in the morning, and a very nice sick lady walked around the office looking like death warmed over. Why do sick people come to work when they work with the public? Everything else went well and I was off to work to find NO TRUCKS!!! I got a lot of knitting done at break and lunch time. I even finished another Christmas present!!!
Well I’ve been knitting on Christmas presents and I have 2 done now. I stepped away from the beautiful white little scarf I was working on last weekend to cast on the Birthday Cowl. I love a quick knitting project that turns out. This is the most wonderful yarn to knit with, I want more for a sweater, but that will have to wait. In the mean time let me just say, if you need a quick present this is a great pattern.
Next up… remember the Knitspot.com pattern Fiddlehead Scarf that I started in the beautiful Red Clover Honey yarn… well, I changed my mind and I decided I wanted to do something else with that yarn, so I took in out and restarted the Fiddlehead scarf in a lovely color of Willow. I just started it and wanted to get a few pattern repeats done. It a good knit for quite time. Not a good gabbing knit for me.
OK, this project needs to get back in the bag for after I finish my white little scarf.
We are going camping this coming weekend… Yes, that’s right camping! And you are all invited to join up with us if you want. (Oct 10th – 12th) We’ll be staying at the Kalaoch Campground and there is a lodge nearby too. Anyway, I’ll be needing an easy knitting project of course, so I started this one!
Well I’m going to get back to knittng on my white little scarf, and maybe a quick trip to the beach to let the dogs run.
