Well, here it is, the second day of September. Accompanied by weather that turns thoughts to fall, which is fine with me. (To all of those people that have told me that "it's freezing!" or "it feels like winter!" - it is not, and it does not. Geez.)
I haven't done much on the computer this week, as our primary computer has a pretty nasty virus. Poor The Tim has spent hours trying to get it all straightened out, and at last report, was making some progress. It's a good thing he's here to do it, 'cause if I had to try and figure it out, well ... let's just say that I probably wouldn't know we had a virus in the first place ...
Progress is being made on my various knitting projects. Today I plan to pick up Dotty and start the finishing touches, such as sewing the shoulder seams, picking up stitches for the neck and armholes. It may actually be completely finished in another week or so, and then I will feel an incredible sense of accomplishment. Fair isle and steeking are things that - to me at least - seem like "big-time knitting" knowledge.
In other news, I had yesterday and today off, and it has been great. The Tim even took me out to lunch yesterday, which was such a treat. I've been marking things off my "to-do" list, but I haven't been driving myself crazy trying to get things done, so it's been enjoyable. Today my "official" activities will be finishing the laundry, making a couple of doctor's appointments, and baking a raisin spice cake from one of my fave recipes.
In other news, it occurs to me that November is closer than I think it is, and I have no job lined up. My current job ends at the end of November, and though I have been applying for all kinds of jobs, no one has contacted me. It's frustrating, but also understandable, since so many people are looking for work. However, in my Bridget-centric universe, *I* should be the person being called for interviews!
That's it for now. I'll be back with a book report, vacation pictures, and who knows what before long.
