Well it's 80 here and all is right with the world. The blogging paused for a bit due to a personal illness, a lovely vacation in Jamaica, dog surgery recovery and me cleaning up messes in the house all day, Girl Scout cookie sales, and Junior volleyball.
February was hectic and ended with a much needed, very relaxing vacation. DH and I are celebrating 15 years of marriage this year and we spent it with our friends of 15 years who are celebrating their 15th anniversary as well. We don't live near them anymore but when we are together it's like we've never been apart. They are fabulous! There was lots of drinking, some eating, lots of drinking, lots of sun, lots of drinking, lots of beach volleyball, and lots of laughs. Did I say lots of drinking? Somehow you can go to Jamaica and drink all day long and not feel ill. I think that in the first 3 days there I wasn't without a drink if I was awake. I can't wait to go back.
Now because I was always drinking, I did very little knitting. I did bring socks to work on but I only worked on them during travel and first thing in morning before breakfast. It was nice to not knit. I can't believe I said that but I think I needed a knit break as well. I can see the knitting is going to slow a bit this spring. I have the desire again to work in my yard and do some planting. Last year I was in a funk and didn't do anything with the yard. No funk this year. Yeah!
If you aren't already hogging the bandwidth at Knitty then you should know the Spring Knitty is up. These will be my next socks on the needles. And I think they are destined to be made with Wollmeise. It's not surprising that these socks are from Cookie A's blogmate.
