Where did My Vacation GO?

I go back to work on Monday. As much as I love my job being on vacation also has it's perks!

I went on a yarn crawl Wed with three fellow knitters. We went to three yarn shops, one near a famous university in NJ was too snooty for my taste But the other two were great. We went to Wooly Lamb in Pennington where I got some multicolored boucle mohair for a shawl at my favorite price 50% off, then we went into the shop next door a---- QUILTING shop and I got a new pattern and fabric to make an apron for swap. Then we had lunch at a rib restaurant, and off to Twist in PA. I love that little shop. I got a great pattern for an entrelac jacket/sweater and some organic yarn to make a soft toy for a baby. NOT so bad for me trying to cut down!

Yesterday, I went to the airport and picked up up my neice in from California, we had a nice visit before I dropped her off at my daughter's job. That's youth---- fly in a airplane ALL night get up, freshen up in a airport restroom, look great -- then be ready to work all day and go out all night!

Somehow, I've come down with a strep infection in my throat and ear, so today I feel pretty low. I'm on my third day of meds so I should be feeling better soon.

Very little knitting done , just more work on one of my sweaters.

Aw, sorry you are feeling a bit under the weather. When I was in my 20's, I had tonsilitis or a strep infection EVERY year. It drove me nuts. And if I take antibiotics, I get a yeast infection....Thankfully, the days of illness are FAR behind me!

Sounds like you had a nice day on Wednesday! How fun to have friends with whom you can have some good fun.

Working is great for the paycheck, but when it comes to free time, nothing beats vacationing!!!! Not too any weeks of school left, are there?

Feel better soon, dear Frances!!!!

Wah! I didn't know about the yarn crawl! Damn! Okay, I'm done venting, hahahahahaha.

I don't know where your vacation went either, I'd hoped to be able to spend some time with you. Having Zoe home every day for the past 12 days certainly kept me busy and on my toes.

Oh well, maybe next time...
