I hope that all of you had a great Christmas. I have been sick as a dog the whole time. Didn't do any of the things that I wanted to do. I was up coughing most nights, and sleeping on the couch as much as I could get away with during the day. I'm just starting to feel better this evening. I haven't had a fever today, but I have episodes of coughing I could live without. Armed with cough drops, water and a bottle of Vicks 44, Bill and I went to see "We Are Marshall". I really liked it. I would recommend it to people even if, like me, they aren't football fans. There is a movie that I didn't see in the theatre, but I rented on DVD last week. It is called "Talledega Nights". It is completely stupid, but I really enjoyed it. So if you want a really mindless movie entertainment experience.. rent it. You might like it to.
I haven't worked on anything. I am knitting a blue shawl with a fan and feather pattern out of blue alpaca. Can anyone reading this tell me if alpaca can be washed just like wool? I have some eucalan, I have never washed anything out to block, but I got some pointers from a yarn shop owner. I read on another blog somewhere that alpaca felts even in cold water... is this true? Let me know if you know anything about it.
I have to go back to work tomorrow. There is going to be SO MUCH work to do. 4 days worth of charts for 3 departments.. that's about 800 charts.. maybe more. I'm really not looking forward to it. I only have to work 3 days though, and I have another chance with another 4 day weekend. Maybe if I'm lucky, I will feel better during that break.
Things to do tomorrow... 800 charts... get out by 3pm so I can get to UPS to mail quilts (mine and Birgit's) to Road to California, take books back to the Library..go to bed EARLY!
If you don't hear from me for a few days, it is because I am too tired to turn on the computer. You'll hear from me before the New Year!
