Well, I'm starting to feel a little better, but still so tired. I have only been knitting on the way to work in the mornings this week and a couple of times at lunch. Nothing in the evenings after dinner, which is normally prime knitting time. Still don't think I am getting enough sleep. Just too much going on, this week at work was hella busy. Today I was there by myself and Fridays are always the busiest days and today was also a deadline day for submittals so it was extra busy. I came home and tried to take a nap but the phone rang and so that didn't work.
Tomorrow morning I need to be up early for a club breakfast in Williamsburg (HAM radio club, my other hobby) And then we might head out of town for the day.
I am going to take knitting with me though. I am working on a summer sweater for msyelf so you would think I would be more motivated than I am.
The house hunting is still on going I went and looked at another house this week. It was really cute but it is going to be so hard to downsize, I'm being to doubt my ability to do this.
Super good news, found out today the Yarn Harlot is coming to Va in September! I totally can't wait! And Wayne Newton is coming in January! My life could be nearly perfect! I know you say Wayne Newton, but I can't help it, I love him, the same way others are curiously drawn to Air Supply, Kenny G or Barry Manilow. He is the one mellow guy I like. Because the next mellow music I like is Right, Blue and Righteous by ZZ Top and that is as mellow as I get.

In other news, the spinning wheel is finished! I have even carded a little roving and ready to try it out this weekend. I just haven't had the energy to do a lot of carding recently. But, hopefully I'll get more done. My neighbors who have never seen a spinning wheel before are asking for a demonstration soon. That should be interesting. On the bright side, them not having seen one before even my novice skills will look like I know what I am doing. LOL!
I'll keep you posted.
My neighbors think my hubby and I are nuts anyway because we have what they considering interesting hobbies, like the motorcycles. But they are older so it is kind of understandable.

Well, Harry Potter book is on the way so you probably won't hear from me for a couple of days again. Sorry :-(

Happy Knitting

Hello, my friend!

I was glad to see your comment today, I've missed you!

Will you stay in the Williamsburg area for your house hunt?

Oh, and by the way... I LOVE Neil Diamond. It's a shameless love - if he comes around again I would sprint to get tickets...

ahhhh, your dogs are so very adorable!
Do you want me to add your name to the Dogs on Thursday group?

Your blog is great also!
I just went to see the Yarn Harlot in April when she came to Chicago!
Oh My! Was she just awesome! So very, very nice. I was like 28th in the line to see her and have her sign my books and she treated me like I was the first in line, and took the time to talk to me for a few min., asked about my life and knitting etc... yep, she is so very nice and down to earth.

Oh I am just learning to spin on a wheel. I even had my frist class last night. One day soon I will have my very own wheel too. (sigh!)
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Sorry to be so chatty on yours. :)
