In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Last day of stay-cation

Yes, I know I still have the week-end before I go back to work . . .but we'll probably have the usual week-end routine, so it feels like my vacation is over.

I do believe I will enjoy being retired in six or seven years.

Today I finished the book I started reading last week-end and started another band on Martha Edlin.  I have three bands, then three alphabets, then a section with spot motifs, and then Martha will be done.   There will be a picture of the band I'm working on as soon as the battery for the camera is charged.  Meanwhile, I need to inventory the frig and make a "hopeful" list for the farmers' market trip in the morning.

It will be the first time we've set the clock all week.

If I weren't such a grown-up person, I might cry. I hate getting up to an alarm clock!

  1. I'll be starting my month long summer break in another week ... it's an urban myth that those in education get the whole summer off ... and I feel your pain. It is always so difficult to get back to the old work-a-day routines and dreams of retirement abound. For me that is four years away. I love the children I work with and thoroughly enjoy my job [most of the time] but this old body is ready for retirement.
