April in Pictures

Where did the month go? I can only hope that life in May slows down just a little.

Sockapalooza socks 

Here they are, the sockapalooza socks getting a once over from Miles. I think he's just checking to make sure no one forgot any chocolate in the easter basket.

But because I am the indecisive fool that I am, I've started a second pair. Time (or lack thereof) may, in the end, make the decision for me. As of tonight, I have one sock finished and tomorrow I'll cast on the second. If I get it done in time, these will head east to their recipient. If I don't knit fast enough, it's the others.

5 tax returns
Daughter's confirmation on Thursday
Brother's birthday on Friday
Spring Fair all day Saturday
Time for knitting second sock.....somewhere in between everything else.

A Virginian RAOK 

Wow, my very first "snail mail" RAOK!

A lovely set of envelopes from Melanie of runswithtrowels. My mother always told me not to run with scissors, but I suspect that running with trowels could be just as risky. Thank you, Melanie! How sweet!

It's been such a crazy month, this was a nice treat.

Stop the Ride, I WANT TO GET OFF! 

I'm beginning to remember why it was that I stopped knitting about 10-12 years ago. It seems perhaps I suffer from a form of fibre related "eyes are bigger than the stomach." How about - "She severely under estimated her ability to keep up!"

Here I am, past the halfway point of the month and these are the things waiting for me like little explosions through the rest of the month.

1) Final assignment for online HR course. 4/16 (deadline passed - not completed yet.)
2) Full day grounds clean-up at high school to get out of the negative position in accrued volunteer hours. 4/22 (don't even have time for 'grounds clean-up around my own house)
3) 10km fun(?)run 4/23. (Have I trained? NO!)
4) Packing up son's worldly possessions and returning him and them back to Vancouver 4/25
5) Daughter's confirmation 4/27 (and all that goes with spiritually prepping and outfitting one 12 year old girl and her 19 year old brother, her sponsor)
6) Spring Fair at elementary school 4/29 (co-ordination of game rooms decorations and prizes, prizes, prizes)
7) 5 income tax returns 5/1
8) 1 pair of socks for sockapalooza pal. 5/1 (1 pair done, not overly fond of them, second pair as back-up on the needles)

It's gotten to the point where sitting down to knit feels like a guilty pleasure I don't have time for and therefore shouldn't be doing.
