I’ve been whittling away at that book pile.
This week has felt like a jumble of books and boxes. I’m not used to all of this business at one time! But there’s good news. The book pile is…
…nearly gone! I just have to weigh this last batch, print the postage, and plop them down on the front steps for my poor, persecuted letter carrier to take. I tell you, she was none too happy with me yesterday. The kids and I even helped carry the boxes to her truck, but still – not a smile out of her.
Oh well. At least this is the last batch, right?
Well, sort of. These boxes are all from the weekend’s orders. I still have to pack up Monday-Thursday orders… At least those are not going to be so heavy.
I’m sorry, Ms. Mailman. Please forgive me!
On another note…
Aidan’s sweater is coming along. I finished the first sleeve last night – just one more sleeve and a hood left to go! I rewarded myself in the form of a little break from stockinette, and cast on for these Trenza Mitts. I think I can finish them in time for my mother-in-law’s birthday in nine days. I think they’ll go nicely with this neckwarmer I made her a few years ago. Oh, it’s going to be nice to work with cables for a change!
P.S. Like that neckwarmer? In case you missed it, I wrote up a tutorial + video blog about it last week.
The kids have today and tomorrow off. I’m hoping to get out from under books & boxes and do something fun with them soon. Wish me luck!
