To quote George Bailey in "It's a wonderful life": "I just feel like if I didn't get away, I'd bust..." I hear ya, George, I hear ya. Vacation is elusive this year. Will I really get to go somewhere, or will it get lost in the three million busynesses that others dream up for one to help them with "right now". Paulette and I have not gone on vacation together for 5 years. That's way too long. I miss travelling with my best friend. Why is this all coming up now, you ask? Well, August is a traditional month for going on vacation. Everyone else is talking about getting away and it's really getting to me. I just want to sit down and cry about it but I will be a big girl and not do that--maybe.
On the gifty side of Paulette's recent getaway to San Francisco with our AFSCME brothers and sisters, she brought me:
This is lovely 50% silk/50% merino yarn from Artfibers in San Francisco. There is enough to make a scarf.
This is 4 yards of silk fabric from Britex Fabrics in San Francisco. I have regretted not buying some in the 11 years since I was there last.
She also brought some yummy chocolate from Ghirardelli. Mmmmmm, nummy.
On the knitting front--I just finished the body of my shawl on my break. I start the border at lunch. Yippee!!!
