I'm Still Here!

Whew! I have been buzy since last weekend, and haven't had a whole lot of time for myself. I've had to work on lesson plans all week for the TESL practicum I had to do. That's done now (finished teaching this afternoon, actually), and finally I have time to sit and knit!

I haven't picked up the knitting needles since last Saturday and let me tell you, I've been in withdrawl! I was able to do a little bit of spinning earlier tonight and once during the week when I had a short amount of time. I figured if I picked up the knitting I wouldn't put it down, so I did some spinning hoping the same thing wouldn't happen. It was hard, but I did manage to put the spindle down.

I received a couple of packages this week. The first one was from my Secret Pal. She sent some really cute earrings - scrabble tiles (with the letter S on them)!

The other package I received was a really cute ornament from Rhonda. She sent it as a thank you for hosting the Knittin' Mittens KAL! Thank you so much Rhonda, I love it! I got it on Tuesday, but haven't had the chance to post about it or let you know I had it.

I will get pics up of both gifts tomorrow. Until then, I'm off to knit before I fall asleep - this week has really taken a lot out of me. I'll also be posting (probably tomorrow) about my TESL practicum on my Confirm The Work of Our Hands Blog. I'll let you know when, so you can go read about it if you want.

So, happy knitting for now, and I'll talk to you all tomorrow!

I know exactly what you mean when you say you've had no time for yourself. We're finishing off our new house now, we should be moving in there in about month's time and it's been crazy! Last night I stayed up until midnight so that I could get some quality time for myself--and now I'm dead tired. :)

I understand the busy part for sure ... forget about my housework & posting on the blog during those really busy times. But I carry my knitting where ever I go & get a few minutes in here and there. Keeps me sane, hehe. ;-)

Cobgratulations on being all finished with that! I find that sometimes the knitting is all the sweeter for the time spent away! Hope you're relaxing and having fun now!
