Time Flies When You’re Having Fun

It’s the last day of January which means that the year is 1/12 over.  It must have been a good month because it flew by.  Haven’t you ever noticed that when things are going well, the time just flies?

So, what did I spend the  month doing?  Knitting of course, I am close to finishing a slanted cable sweater.  I finished a yak /alpaca hat, a dishcloth and a handpaint yarn felted bag.  The yak and alpaca came from Shady Haven’s Fiber Designs.   It was really lovely to work with.  The hat is really warm and I might even wear it.  I only wear hats when it’s severely cold and I’ll be outside for some time.  I did not make my goal of 2,010 yards for this month, since I only count projects when they are totally completed.

Our oldest god-daughter had her 2nd child, a boy named Elijah Preston.  His grandfather Preston is looking down from heaven and is smiling knowing what a beautiful daughter he raised.

I took a good friend to see Little House on the Prairie the Musical.  Unfortunately, Melissa Gilbert had pneumonia so we didn’t see her.  We had front row seats and the play was magnificent especially the 10-year-old who played Carrie.  Her voice was so clear and on tone – she’ll go places.

At work, we’re still getting settled in after a move to get everyone in the same office.   I’ve learned over the years that there are many people who don’t deal well with change and so they tend to strike out and complain about little things because they don’t realize or don’t want to admit that they don’t handle change.

It’s been as cold as -11 degrees this month and as warm as 39.  We’ve had under 7 inches of snow – that’s about half the average for January.

Well that’s all for now – keep knitting – be good to each other – and smile, it makes people wonder what you are up to!
