It seems.....

Hmmm, it seems that there is something huge missing from my life at the moment..... I'm not writing. I know I'm employed for the moment. But clicking links just isn't cutting it anymore. Then the email came..... They want me to update/write/edit/fix a whole bunch of documents. This will add to my work and could be for the next couple of months. The head of editorial stated that she already has about 40ish hours ready for me. This doesn't include the remainder of the testing that needs to be done for the site.

I can't be happier at the moment. I will finally get to use the skills I spent the last 2 years of my life getting to use. And, to top it off, for a company I really enjoy working for.

Now to find a way to fill the other voids in my life.....

I know they probably will never read this, but... CONGRATS to all of the Canadian medal winners!! ^_^

You Gotta Have......

Good Friends.....

Today was the Pic-Knit at the Surrey Museum. I really wanted to go but had to wait for my brother to fix my car. So there was a huge chance I wouldn't be able to go. When I was getting ready, while he was fixin my car, I got a phone call from Ilix (SilverIlix on rav). She was calling to see if I needed to be picked up for the event. It made me smile that she would do that for me.

Yarn! Spinning! Fiber!

The Pic-Knit was cool. It was like a smaller fiber fest. I think Ilix knew everyone there, well almost everyone and DragonRhapsody was there as well. There was some amazing yarn that I wanted just to have in my stash but I stopped myself from purchasing more yarn. I now know where to get it when I figure out to make with it. DragonRhapsody purchased a drop spindle kit that had the spindle, instructions and some roving. We were sitting knitting and one of the ladies was kind enough to show DragonRhapsody how to start.


After the Pic-knit we visited our friend Splynk at Knitopia. It was a nice visit and I purchased some yarn for a pair of gloves that my Mom's friend wants. The hour we were there went by way to quickly.

Tonight will be more organizing/cleaning up the house and working. Tomorrow will be more housework; some yardwork, if there is no rain; and a birthday BBQ for a friend. For those of you that read this and know me you will never know how much I appreciate you and how much you mean to me as a friend. Thanks for who you are and what you do. ^_^

Much has happened

Wow, August already. Time has flown by. My contract is up with my current employer so I am on the hunt for a job. There are a few places in the Lower Mainland mostly in Surrey and Langley. There are lots in Vancouver, but I want to try the ones closer to home first.

I also, hopefully, will get a part-time job as well. Where..... I'm lookin.

Knitting projects have been going great. I almost have my stash organized and ready for all the gift/charity knitting that I want to do in the near future. I have one more set of Fetching to do and I want to get at least 2 pairs of Spirogyra done before the end of the month. Then onto some baby outfits and blankets to give to well, babies. ^_^

When I was talking to my Mom earlier tonight she informed me that there probably is a bunch of her Halloween costumes in the house. Time to go hunting.....

The best news of the week..... My Mom and Dad will be out the last week of August. ^_^ The bad news is I really, really, REALLY need to get my house so very clean. It's going to be harder this time 'cause my brother won't be here to help.
