I've been in a bit of a slump with my knitting - I always knit -but lately I have been doing plain knitting - nothing too exciting. I think it is because the rest of my life has been so crazy.
I have mentioned my part-time work as a retail pharmacist - it is work that I really love - but the 10 hour days just kill me. So...I've decided to take a break from work and re-enter the world of retirement (again). My boss, a great pharmacist and manager, whom I will miss so much, sent me these flowers on my last day. Nice of her, wasn't it?
My other transition is we are selling our condo in Kalamazoo, which has been our "home base" for our family. Youngest son still lives there, while he attends college and works at Starbucks. We close on the sale next week and youngest son will be moving into his own apartment this weekend. We have a fully furnished condo, and the furniture is headed into six different households. My head is spinning with the coordination of all the moves, and we will be busy with this for the next week.
However, in an effort stop the knitting slump, I started a project that I've been thinking about for a while, and actually had the yarn in my stash waiting for the project.

Noro Taiyo sock yarn (I LOVE this yarn so much), size 7 needle
I started it last night and take a look at what I've got done so far.
We have all the grand kids coming over today, so it should be a crazy day - they are 6, 4, 3, 2 and 9 months old. I will be ready for an early bedtime tonight, don't you think?
