Blather, Manic Monday

We are home!

The trip home seemed to go much smoother than the trip to GA did when we had a deadline. We wanted to be there in time for the hooding ceremony, which was at 7pm so we were very rushed. But coming home, we took our time and enjoyed the view. We arrived home Sunday evening to very angry cats and thirsty plants. DD2 and I are both sick with the creeping crud, but we had a great time.

I didn’t get nearly as much knitting done as I had planned, my hands and arms are hurting badly when I knit lately, and aspirin is not cutting it. I may have to mention it to the Dr. next time I go in. I did work on all of the normal stuff I have started (baby blanket, socks, sweater of many stitches, etc. . , but I thought I would be able to knit a lot more than I did.

I read Debbie Macomber’s new book, Summer on Blossom Street, last week and enjoyed it, though I liked 20 Wishes better, but I do not know why. Isn't it weird how a book can either grab you or not? What is your opinion on the two books?

If you could completely redecorate any room in your house at no expense to you, what room would you choose?
My bedroom. The furniture that I brought with me from GA is big furniture, and the Master bedroom is not very masterful, so there is little room to move in the bedroom right now

Which hour of the day do you feel goes the slowest?
Twilight always seems to drag to me.

If your birthday could be in a different month of the year, when would you have it?
I am good with March, it doesn’t matter when my birthday is.

I know this one doesn't "count" but welcome home :-)

Sorry about the creeping crud - glad you had a great time. I haven't read either book so I have nothing to say.

Glad your trip home went smoothly. Feel better soon.

I think that while I enjoyed both of them, they both tied up too many ends too tidily.

Feel better.
