This was the first day of our 3rd annual AI/PI conference. A attendees have been here in previous years, and I think they are bored. After talking to several, they had not been sure that they needed to come, but their commanders sent them. Ah, what wonderful confusion (one more thing on my list for the AAR) since this is not truly an annual conference, but rather a training course for newly appointed public health emergency officers.
The day went well, with all speakers finishing up on time or early. Something that was appreciated by all of us.
Particularly me, since my commuting time has increased by a good 20 minutes each way as a result of road construction. 125 km is not that far, as long as it is at Autobahn speeds – 140km+/hr. When I am at the point that well over half (no, I am not kidding) of the journey is being made through construction zones posted 80 km with a stretch of the old mountains being 100km/hr – it takes a while to get either to work or home. If the Politzei were not peppering the route with portable speed cameras that they are relocating on a daily basis….. The positive side effect is that a tank of diesel lasts a lot longer when driving at slower speeds.
I was cleaning up, and found some yarn I had put aside from Wolle-Lust. Aren’t those great sheep? Her shop is here. I think these are some great color combinations in her handdyed of sockwolle. I refuse to think about how much total sock yarn I have on hand at the moment. That is why I am spinning.
But I have these which are going to make bright and cheerful socks one of these days.
