Staycation, n. – A vacation that is spent at one’s home enjoying all that home and one’s home environs have to offer.
Knitting was put on hold for a week while out-of-town friends came to visit. We spent two days visiting local wineries and three working on the rebuilding of our koi pond. It’s going to look so good when it’s done! Overall it was a wonderful time, even if it was mostly yarn-free. (One of the wineries was selling alpaca yarns. I didn’t buy any.) I got to show off the new drum carder and spun up half a bobbin of some pepto-pink practice wool to demonstrate the wheel. One friend even commented that the BFL I spun up looks “store-bought”!
I did get a little more done on the first of Pirate-Husband’s socks and I’m almost up to the heel flap (he keeps saying I should make the leg a little longer) and I’m already thinking about what the next socks will be! Too many projects, not enough time.
Besides, I have all these non-yarn hobbies. I got a mountain bike and I need to start riding, I miss playing guitar, and I haven’t drawn anything in a long time. There’s a computer to rebuild and I’d like to start work on a story that’s been brewing in my head for a while. The house is a constant project. Lest anyone think I’m complaining, I’m not! I love my life. It’s everything I’ve been wanting forever. Good job, good house, good husband, good friends, good hobbies. I just wish I could do everything at once!
