The last day, I worked at the office was 12/9 (due to a dentist being on vacation). I am back to work, tomorrow (Solstice) for 3 days, then off until 1/4. I have not worked much, this month. I seem to have completed some stuff at home, but that list goes on and on. Happy Solstice, tomorrow.
My current reading is "Stones into Schools" by Greg Mortenson. His first book, "Three Cups of Tea" is inspiring. He continues on his humanitarian effect to help build schools and promote education especially for girls in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The book, I had recently finished "The Elegance of the Hedgehog" by Muriel Barbery. Interesting. I have rearranged my computer desk and have completed 99% of the organizing on the new computer. Gary and I were crawling around under the desk, fishing out old cords, stringing new cords. Photos, printer remaining on the list. OK, maybe 95% complete. I have enjoyed my week off, I work 3 days next week, then off until the new year.
Yesterday morning, we open the garage to a beautiful sunrise. I am heading to work. Gary and Meggen hop in his truck, drive about a mile to take these lovely photos. The sunrise reflects in the standing water in the fields, as we have had lots of rain. Thank you, Gary for the photos. Meggen thanks you for the truck ride.
Well, the highlight of the evening was a budget hearing for fire district 5. I am a fire commissioner, so we talked about money and planned a budget.
On the knitting front, I am going to knit myself a sweater. I saw the pattern on the cover of the winter edition of Interweave Knits. Then for the last 4 days, I have been looking at yarn and colors. I made the color decision, today, it is brick red heather, not bright red, kind of red/brown. I have been to WildFibers every day for the last 4 days, looking at colors.
Yesterday morning, I am heading to town for a sock class. The goats were loaded up in a truck and heading to their winter location. I have enjoyed watching the goats in the tent on rainy days, out in the field, and various position on their mound of dirt. It was nice to see them head out and hope they come back in the spring.
