Sometimes I don’t mind daylight savings time. It was lovely, having that extra hour of daylight this evening. I didn’t even realize that it had gotten late till my computer told me that it was 8 pm. After all, I had rolled in before sundown, had lit candles and had eaten while it was still light out.
It was about then that I decided to do an on-line check in for tomorrow’s flight.
Oh. Now it makes sense that I wanted to arrive in Germany in plenty of time to pitch in on Seder preparations. But what exactly made me think that I wanted to catch a train at 0618 in the morning? Insanity or a brief attack of the stupids? Perhaps I was confused with weekdays where the 0648 (and another 30 minutes of sleep) would be a possibility.
I thought about it – 0718 train takes 47 minutes to get to Feltham followed by a bus for 20 minutes. Boarding is at 0920 (or you could lose your seat). Not much time for security, much less waiting for, or missing connections.
Nah, I will be crabby, cold and on the 0618.
Which means that this is not going to be a long or interesting post with blogging, knitting or other erudite discussions. Just the above, I am afraid, along with the lovely list of what came in the mail. Mail is such a thrill when you only collect it every 10-14 days.
- Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Disaster Response (The Sphere Project)
Refugee Health – An approach to emergency situations. Medecins San Frontieres.
Fiber Related Mysteries
- Sins and Needles – Monica Ferris
Died in the Wool – Mary Kruger
Murder Most Crafty – Maggie Bruce, ed.
Following links from Ravelry may not always be a good idea. My lace weight yarn (remember those socks last weekend?) arrived.
along with some nice merino Artyarn.
and some Sandes Smart for a couple of projects.
It is lovely, soft merino. Now, where in the queue does it go?
The next round of Sock Madness is released next Monday. Calling for a light solid or semi-solid yarn, I pulled out some sunshine, this time I am planning ahead.
Golden Ticket is left from a Sweet Sheep Project Spectrum shipment. Must have been waiting just for this.
Shabbat Shalom (and hope that your chametz was easy to find and clean out this year….)
