Saying goodbye is hard.
We are a very quiet house here today; Brani flew back home to Slovakia on Sunday,and this time he wont be back in September as he is hoping to play hockey on the Czech Elite team. If that wasn't bad enough, Jess has started her countdown calender on the blackboard for her four month trip to New Brunswick:( She leaves May 5th, and returns September 1st...yikes!! I am so glad for text messaging, email, Skype and Facebook, at least I can keep in touch with Brani and Jess.
Now that things are quieter you would think that I would be rug hooking or crocheting like mad...but no; I can't seem to settle to anything yet. I have promised Jess an afghan to take to NB, and have started it, but I don't have a lot of time left, and should get moving. My rug hooking challenge for Wool Snippets has fallen way behind. There is no way that I am going to get it finished by midnight, so I will work on it after the afghan is done. I also have a baby blanket to make, and I hope that I will be busy in the gardens soon.
Maybe I should clean the house today since it isn't sunny? Seems strange to be able to sit for 5 minutes without someone or a dog interrupting. I guess that I'll get used to it over the summer. Then, bang..Jess will be back for her last year of college, and we will get a new Peterborough Pete's player. I think that for today anyway, I'll just sit in my chair and enjoy the peace.
