At least this year my birthday falls on neither Kol Kidre or Yom Kippur. It means that I don’t have to pretend it is ok to not being able to eat or celebrate.
First thing in this morning I received good wishes and hugs from both of the teens here. I arrived home to find roses from my DH. He and the wandering teen left for Vienna yesterday.
Too much reflection and contemplation really can be wearing. After thinking about things yesterday, I set a reasonable number of goals for today. I want to get an application form off which involves updating my CV and producing two other documents for attachments. I need to get some vouchers filed (getting money back is always lovely).
Family tradition is that the birthday person gets to choose where and what for dinner. Since the kids are off tomorrow (Tag der Deutschen Einheit) I might even contemplate going out. Most likely it will be take-away, as my wallet will be much happier.
It seems to be a tradition in the fiber community to run contests and give-aways in celebration of birthdays. Since I am not one for making people jump through hoops, I think I will just do the random generator thing on Monday evening for a 1) nice package of spinables and 2-4) three hanks of good sock yarn. Anyone who, during the time frame of 2-6 Oct) leaves a new comment on any post (from any time) will be eligible. [Other than this one – for some reason, it is not accepting comments. Go figure – I can’t solve it!] I don’t care what you say (but let me know if you are not a spinner – no point in sending you turquoise wool-silk bats for spinning). You are welcome to spread the word.
Yes I know, you had just about given up on ever seeing any knitting content again. Today was a finish-things-up day.
First, a hat for Ms Copper. I was hoping that she wouldn’t like it so I could keep it for myself.
But no such luck. BTW – I had almost 2 meters left from 137.
Then there is the hat for the Mole –
I post a progress on a few more projects tomorrow. By the end of the weekend, I hope to be back to just the long term three on the needles.
