It is that busy time of year and I have four WIP's on the needles (plus a couple more planned that need to get done before Christmas). Although it seems like a long time until Thanksgiving, when I look at the calendar, it is just around the corner.
We are doing turkey day at our house this year instead of going to my sister-in-law's house in California. I hope I still remember how to a fancy holiday dinner. It will be just the two of us and our daughter this year, so probably will have way too much food. On the other hand, leftovers solve the dinner problem for a couple of days.
I had my first meeting with the school superintendent this morning and got up to speed on a couple of the issues. Even though we don't officially take our seats until January, the new board members are included in most meetings so we can learn. I am trying to get out and visit all of the schools before the end of December, so that should keep me hopping.
I've spent the last couple of days shoveling out our spare room and trying to find spaces for the all those extra things we store in there. Do not move to Arizona if you have a lot of stuff (toys, collections, sports equipment etc.) There are virtually no basements or attics, which makes for interesting storage issues. I just ordered a computer desk to go in the bedroom, so I can set up the new business computer. I'm much better on a deadline, so knowing the desk is coming makes me move faster. Today I'm packing up part of my depression glass collection as I don't have room to display it well. When the economy picks up, I probably should sell some of it on Ebay. For now it is going in storage.
Thank you for the nice break. Now it is back to work before I weaken and take a nap :-)
