Life really has intervened. My apologies! I have done some knitting, although virtually no work on the Cables and Os sweater – and not far to go to the 30th, so needless to say, a large chunk of my summer work will be put off for a while as I go back to the pursuit of warmth as winter approaches, LOL:)
Let’s see, where were we when last I wrote? Kristin’s good result (Yippee!!), school started back up. Bell choir firsts, walking with Nancy. Life has indeed been good.
On the work front, it looks like I’ve got two appellate briefs to be done in the next two months and probably oral argument (my first) before our intermediate appellate court. I’m looking forward to it and hope to do well for our clients! Last Wednesday and yesterday, we had in-house trainings both of which were very helpful. Our new attorney is doing very well and it’s really been a lot of fun working with her on her contested cases because she’s such a fast learner!
This past Saturday, we had an extra choir rehearsal, but only a few folks showed up, so it was a little tougher than usual – one has to then maintain one’s own voice parts – but worth the effort definitely. The weather was so cool and beautiful that afterwards Nancy and I walked in the park and ended up walking around the entire lake – something I had never had the stamina to do before! It was probably nothing to her, but for me it was a MAJOR accomplishment! The next day (Sunday) after church, I realized I should have done a sh*tload of work on Saturday evening (but didn’t!) and so did not do well on the Sunday dinner thing. Not good for DH who works two jobs all week. He was not amused, but we survived the evening. Well, I finally did when I was able to hit the hay at 4 AM!
Monday I had court in the morning, then over to the office to get a LOT of work done. Tuesday I was again in court in the morning then went over to give our new attorney some support on a contested shelter hearing (see a theme here?) and then got a call from Nancy – they needed some volunteers to help out with a mailing that was going terribly wrong (don’t ask) and since I was done with court at that point and had some tim, I figured, why not – so I boogied over to help stick on mailing labels and had some fun conversations with people from church. Weird in the middle of the week, but my job is flexible as you shall see later.
That evening, I went home and worked a bit on paperwork, then had dinner with Nancy and her husband Rennie, looking at wedding pictures. The two of them are so cute together, LOL. It’s so nice to see people happy and enjoying themselves! Later that evening was bell choir which I am really really getting to love. I’m not good at it yet, but I still can enjoy it:)
Got home at about 10 PM, but still had a presentation to prepare for (training), so I got out my materials, laptop, and a glass of wine and had at it. Done by 1 AM. Not bad:)
Yesterday again court then off to the city office to wrestle with their photocopier (GRRRR) actually almost started talking like a pirate (ARRRRRR) – it was National Talk Like a Pirate Day after all….
After I got home last night, I was off to the Wednesday night knitting meetup. I have decided to hold off on EfM for another year and take one night of sociable knitting at my local Borders. It was a lot of fun. The group is growing HUGE, LOL:) More and more of us are getting on Ravelry:) I have hope that our co-founder, Lynn will be there soon! As more of us get on (as Ravelry’s servers are up and running) we are finding it harder and harder to tell Lynn about it, LOL! But soon we’ll all be there.
Don’t you just love watching other people knit? Especially people who are so studious and careful with their stitches. And then there are the colors they work with that you would never think of using. Then I start to think things like, “hey, neutrals might work!” and I start looking at my own stash differently. It’s a good thing:)
