We're barely into September and I'm already booked straight through to the end (seriously, a 9/30 appointment was booked just this morning). I'm looking forward to it all -- there's a lot of Really Fun Stuff that I want to do!
For instance, I'm participating in the Wiener & Kraut Day "Amazing Race" with my sister this weekend. My only regret is that my event occurs at the same time as the doxies' "Weenies On Parade."
The next day, I'll be attending the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival -- for the very first time -- with that same sister + another + nephews! Can you believe that I have never been to WSW? It honestly looks on-par with Rhinebeck, though I doubt I'll find Artichokes French... or comparable chicken pot pies (oh, the food!)... and there will be different faces (I do miss my NYSW faces).
I'll be driving to Maddy's school (3-hour RT) twice this month (so far), as well as heading south at least one more time; sprinkle in a couple of photo shoots and the processing of those + some already in the can, and...
I'm taking October off. I may do a charity bike ride early in the month, and a possible long-weekend super-fun mind-blowing amazing trip later in the month, but otherwise I'm not doin' Nothin'.
(I recently rediscovered my "Raising Sand" CD and, boy, I sure love that song. And a bunch more.)
I guess I like being busy, and I've always worked best under pressure, but I don't like being overwhelmed, and the waves are lapping at my toes. I'm scattered, forgetful, and easily distracted.
Can you believe -- as excited as I was -- that I never actually consummated my pre-order of Aran Knitting? I noticed some chatter about it on Ravelry yesterday -- comparisons of estimated delivery dates and whatnot -- and went to check my order for my estimated delivery date... WHAT ORDER? Ha! There it was, sitting in my cart! Yeah. I panicked for a split-second about a sell-out and just-my-luck and the exorbitant, inflated price I'd have to pay, and then took care of that; it'll be in-hand at this time next week! Sheesh.
In other, very exciting news, I wove in the last end of Parcheesi (Phase I) yesterday!! Tempted as I was to throw it all in the wash (my front-ender's "hand wash" cycle is SO AMAZINGLY GENTLE that even St. Brigid's been thrown into the drink), I had book club and knew I wouldn't have time to pin it all out. Ooooh, it was hard, and I was so tempted to stay home rather than be social. Heh. I had a good time -- it would have been great had my food been better (I am getting picky and particular). Anyway, I'll be doing the wash TONIGHT! I haven't been this excited to do laundry in a while.
