OK? So I did end up working today -- just 'til noon. Then I went out to my uncle's to pick up a box of his late wife's knitting supplies that he found (so timely, too, because I'll be teaching a little girl how to knit next month) (with her mom looking over our shoulders) and he made me lunch! Grilled cheese and homemade tomato soup... I love homemade tomato soup!
There's some OK yarn and some good for learnin' yarn, a bunch of needles and holders, some pamphlets, and loose patterns and notes and some graph paper. So interesting... it appears that Deb was playing around a little bit with designing! Not a surprise, really, she immersed herself in the things that interested her... I don't think knitting gripped her as much as, say, woodworking... but she was definitely interested.
I stopped to visit with Katie and Ali on the way home and, standing there in Katie's kitchen, I lost all my energy. I'm surprised there wasn't a puddle right there on the floor. I couldn't wait to get home and crawl into bed -- which I did. I slept for an hour (seemed like three) on one side, and then another little bit on the other side. It was so nice and cozy, I could have slept for much longer -- and maybe I would have, but then Maddy knocked on my door to say she was home! Yay!
