Last Day shift

I work for a government agency and today's my last day on the day shift for the next 4 months. It was weird to wake up this morning to realise it was the last time I have to wake up at 5:30 am. Starting Monday I'll be working the 2nd shift which runs from 3-11 pm. It will be interesting for me. I'm such a morning person and I'm not sure how well I be at working so late. I want to make sure I don't piss away all of the time that I'll have available to get projects done.

Some of the things on my list are; to remove the drop ceiling in the kitchen and replace the hideous fixtures with something better, re paint my office, learn to warp my loom, and learn to sew a summer dress. I have an iPhone and use a MAC but I don't know how to use some of the programs that come with either very well. The Apple store here has a promotion that for 99 dollars you can get one on one help once a week for a year. I also don't want to lose connections with my knitting friends, so I want to make sure that at least once a week I go and visit someone. There are several knitting shops around that are great for hanging out and knitting.

I know how easy it would be for me to spend all that extra time I'll have in bed. That would not be good for me. It would be easy for me to fall into a deep depression.

Wish me luck.

This last weekend I was able to visit with some of my favorite people. The Spindle and Flyer Guild of the Bay Area. It was our annual carding meeting. Many people brought drum carders and fiber to card. It was a good time to get caught up. I just love to hang with group. They are such a diverse group.

In the beginning...

This is the first post in the rest of your life. Ok so it's not true but it sounds cool. I thought I try giving the blog stuff a try.

A little about me. I am a fiberholic. I love playing with and acquiring things related with knitting and spinning yarn. I am working on a collection of fibers and yarns. I haven't acquired enough of a stash to beyond my life yet but am happily working on it.

I also live with a wonderful husband, 5 cats and a dog. My cats are 1 at 16, 2 at 13 and 2 at 5 months. The older cats are starting to experience the ravages of getting old. One has Hyperthyroidism and another has just been diagnosed with Diabetes.

Our dog, Cino is 11 and is getting gray in the muzzle.

We just bought your first home last year so you will see some pictures of our wonderful home.
