Health, Help, and Yarn

It’s the start of the week, and in an attempt to nip any bad-Monday mojo in the bud, I am posting my three beautiful things from the past week before I do anything else. (Well, other than make coffee. I can’t type before caffeine.)

1. Two of my favorite people received very good news about their health: my sister’s six-month neurology checkup confirmed that last fall’s MS scare was a false alarm, and my friend Julia found out she does not have cancer.

2. We’ve hired the first of the three newly-created positions in my office, so help is, at last, on the way.

3. I spent Sunday afternoon at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival with sprite — and if ever a day was made for hanging out at a farm buying yarn and eating funnel cake, yesterday was it. The weather was perfect (70s, sunny, no humidity), and in between bouts of lounging in the grass with our fair food, we managed to buy quite a bit of yarn.

    Apparently when I informed Rudi that I bought a ton of yarn and that you and I need an independent moderator to oversee our spending in the future, he really expected that I went crazy. When it turned out *only* to have been 10 skeins, he was surprised.

    Thanks for going with me yesterday!

    So glad to hear that Snappy is in the clear….that is an understatement of course, but you understand.

    Also glad to hear that your friend Julia is also healthy. Having been through this with the opposite outcome, I am happy for you all.

    If you had told me 10 years ago that you’d be a sheep and wool farm enthusiast, I would have thought you were crazy. 😉 Glad you had a good day.

    Mmmm funnel cakes.
