The Joys of Self-Involvement

Sorry, sorry. I'm still at the point that I'm either working or sleeping trying to recover from it. Not much time to knit or blog or anything... the Husboy's grandfather passed last week, so we have had a hard time of it lately. I made homemade challah for the various services, and my baby-challah drama finally paid off in some pretty decent bread:

The color is more realistic in the top one, but I had to show you the braiding job I did on the round one below, lousy color or no...


I had the honor of being with the family and holding my grandfather-in-law's hand as he passed into the next world. I can only hope to have so many loving hearts around me when I go.

In other news, I also took on a temporary training job at work, earning the nickname "Plan B" from my newest boss. This has entailed a little extra work, eating up my little extra energy. When I have any time I've been a skeining demon. I have a good two loads of recycled yarn to wash and put up in the etsy shop, I just need good weather and some free time. And I bought a freakin' electric mandolin. Good news is that the strings are the same as on a violin, and I played violin in elementary school. I still suck, but it's a suckiness that doesn't sound as much like cats screwing as it did when I was eight.

Oh, and we bought Rockband when I got back from Texas. That's not helping either.

I am so proud of all you are accomplishing it's awesome. And as for getting tired, yeah, you should be, but it's a good tired now. I have the same tired, a tiredness of freedom and life not sickness and despair.

Sorry about husboy's grandfather but sounds like he had a great life and lots of love.
