Much better

No wardrobe malfunctions today.   At least, none that I’ve noticed so far.  Oh, I did manage to stick on a skort that has no pockets, but I do know where my cell phone is, so it’s not that big a deal.  Ran right over to get my glasses adjusted and she took one look at me and laughed.  “You do have a problem,” she said.

Luckily, she was able to get them straightened out and tightened back up with no trouble.  Phew.

You can’t really see the stripes on the bag in this light, but I did get another stripe done while watching an episode of Lost plus a little bit of the Olympics last night.  (Go Team USA Swimming!  Woohoo!  Isn’t it funny?  I don’t really care about swimming any other time except the Olympics.  I love watching them fly through the water…)

Plus, I decided to see how hard the flowers that came with the pattern were.  Have got 3 petals almost done, the answer is that they are not hard at all!  At least…not yet…

See that metal ant in the background?  A friend gave that to me last Friday with a note that says “May the whole community catch the knitting and quilting BUG.”

Busy day so far today.  It’s weird, I’m at “work” but I still feel a bit like I’m playing.  Mostly, I feel grateful that the shop is actually open, and that even though there is a lot to do, it’s not the same pressure of a deadline.  I feel like I can breathe again.  That I can sit and watch an episode of Lost and not feel like I ought to be doing a million other things.  That has been part of the goal of opening the shop — separating my business from my home.  Going to WORK and then leaving and going HOME.  And being home and not having everything calling my name.

One of the things I did this morning was teach my sister-in-law how to knit.  She’s got her swatch of garter stitch going and will work on that for a day or two before she comes back for more information.

Back to work!  Or is it play?  It must be play, because I sure enjoy it.
