Still Around!

-- 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


  1. Nice to hear from you Sharren. Waiting to see what you have in store.

      (I didn't get to watch a movie, either...)

  2. So good to hear you have your head above water. or should I say software? he he.
    Have a pleasant week with much tatting

    1. Hopefully, I will be tatting some today! I've got thread on bobbins and shuttles ready to go - in a little pouch from Tat Days last year, courtesy of the Southern Belles Tatting Society (thanks again, Beth!).

  3. You're back - hurrah!

    Enjoy the better work schedule!

  4. That's a long work day! Hopefully things will slow down to a normal place soon!
