Summer Phenomenon

This happens every summer: I don't know where the time goes.

Now, during the 10 months of year that I"m 'working' (ie at my academic job where I receive a paycheck), I am very organized and can handle my job, a variety of household tasks, and knitting very easily. Yet in the summer, remove the 'real job' and I'm wondering how, how, how I get everything done in the regular year.

And of course I know how. In the 'regular' (non-summer) year, I don't take time to train the new wisteria plants around the arbor Tim built last summer. I don't go to the farmer's market (twice in two days). I don't make blueberry muffins (twice in three days). I don't pull a few stray weeds here and there. I don't clean out my tshirt drawer.

I love summer. I just sometimes feel it is otherworldly.

These socks are done, and I'm taking a wee sock hiatus of 'basic socks' (I have a lacy pair where one is done, and the other is just uninteresting). I'm doing a mindless sweater instead.

Oh, and I'm destashing some stuff on Rav.
Here!

Let me know you visit the blog and I'll give you 10% off any yarn in my destash.!

Hah! Just wait til you retire, then you'll wonder how you ever had the time to work.

Enjoy your summer.
