Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.

Man - it's hard to get going these mornings. 4 days mostly away from the keyboard has done wonders for my hands and it's a little hard to put them on the front lines again. In addition to that, for those who are government employees I need say only it is June 29. For the otherwise employed, that means the EndOfFiscalYear - the time when more calculators are used and more invoices are discovered, than any other time of the year - even April 14th. My brain has been occupied with the economic transactions of Peter and Paul.

The weekend was delicious. Two dear friends visited with their families and filled the house with energy, conversation, and good will. The friends are fiber friends, so we had wheels spinning and needles clicking. The weather gods smiled upon us (forecast had been for 90's and rain - ick) and Chesituxent spread out her prettiest robes of green and golden sunshine - at least enough of the time. Best of all, the guys played nicely with others. They even went off to play on the river, leaving the spinsters at home with their toys.

I was particularly thrilled to get my hands on some CVM (California Variegated Mutant) fiber from Jen. I've been whining for some ever since she opened her business and this stuff really is gorgeous. I'm such a sucker for Hershey's chocolate brown. She said she had some oatmeal CVM too and I began to envision stranded colorwork in a Norwegian sort of design. Yum.

Work is utter madness these days. We always expect things to get busier during our summer reading program, but this year we are completely swamped with little bodies clutching books, their eyes big with excitement, their mama's anxious about school reading lists. Very little of what we thought might get done ever even begins. Thank goodness, there's nothing looming for the next few weeks (She foolishly says, tempting the fates) Fortunately my part timer is funded for more hours starting Thursday - which can't come soon enough.

Hey! I suddenly realized that I'm going out of town on the 8th & 9th (for play) and that just happens to fall in the same week as the 5th, which is a day off. Woo woo! a 2 day week coming up next week! Well. That puts me in such a good mood I think I'll go spin some CVM.
