-- And I'm looking at the light at the end of the tunnel! This is the third (and final) week of working 8am - 8pm, Monday through Friday. The schedule will change back to something more "normal" the first full week of May.
Hasn't time flown by! I have been tatting a little, usually at lunchtime, and resting when I get home. I still read the "funnies" every morning (and Dear Abby too, as reading her column is a tradition at our house).
I wrote the above last week, and had more to say, but got too sleepy to say it! Starting this week, I should be back on a more "normal" schedule - for me - 7:15 through 4:15. Yes, it's early, but it's also back to a mere eight hours per day as opposed to the twelve I've been averaging for the last month.
I'll also be working Saturday mornings for a long time to come - long story which I won't bore you with here - but as a trade-off, I'll be off on Wednesday afternoons, and I won't have to work until 6.00 PM on Fridays.
I haven't been tatting as much as I'd like, but I've gotten in an angel here, a butterfly there, for the SC State Fair giveaway in October. Tatting at lunchtime hasn't been happening as much as before - many times I've been asked to clock back in to deal with one thing or another. I've been able to tat yesterday afternoon and today, but I've also read today - until the Kindle informed me that it was about out of juice - so it's on its lifeline, slowly recharging.
I've written up a new pattern and plan to tat it by my instructions this evening - probably with a movie on the computer (my idea of multitasking). Pictures will be coming as soon as I get the camera batteries recharged and get some time to take the pictures! That may be tomorrow - I'm an optimist!
Thanks for hanging in with me - - :-D
