Time flies when you are having fun

2 weeks vacation is over in a few short hours. Can't believe I have to go back to work in the morning.

The holiday was so relaxing - well.....until the end. Yesturday we got hit with a storm and we lost electricity last night for about 6 hours. Cold, dark and bored about sums it up.

Bad weather continued most of the day and I had to drive to the airport about 35 minutes away to pick up family. Terrible driving conditions - I passed 2 tractor trailers in the ditch - but I continued to white-knuckle it until I arrived. AND their flight was delayed over an hour. Arrgh!

I was planning to catch up on a few reports for work while I was home but that didn't happen either. Oh well! Maybe my boss will be so busy tomorrow he won't have time to look for me?? I'm hopeful! LOL

I'm planning (I mean struggling) with a new rug design. My friend has requested butterflies but I'm not feeling it. It has sentimental meaning for her so I am really trying and it needs to be done by mid February. I have a vague idea in mind but because I know what it means to her, I am over-thinking it. I think I just need to start hooking it.

Oooooh tomorrow morning is going to be rough.....


  1. Sorry your days of vacation are over. I was lucky this year and got Christmas day off for a change.
    Just stopped by to wish you a Happy New Year.
    Are you going to post pictures of the rug your working on

  2. Kim, sometimes we just need to delve into the mat hooking and ideas will follow.

    Sorry you have to go back to work but someone has to keep government sailing along.......:)
