Knitting, not so much

I don't remember when I've been so non-productive. I think I managed 16 rows on a sock yesterday. And that was it. Monday was only slightly better. And it's not from want of wanting to. I just seem to be really busy with lots of little stuff that is taking me away from my routine. It looks like I'm going to be pre-occupied until the end of the week.

I've been working more days for the last week. Spent four days at Skein filling in for a vacationing instructor. That's done now. I enjoyed the time there as I got to see a number of people I haven't seen since I left Skein last year. Ann Mary hasn't always been real upfront when people have asked where I am. Some have asked if I'm feeling better or how I'm enjoying not working. And there was some pressure to consider coming back to teach there again, even if it was only on Saturday. I don't think so.

Today I'm going to the LA County Fair. That should be lots of fun. We'll meet my daughter Lisa there and she will show us around. I didn't go for my morning walk today since I'm sure I'll be doing plenty of walking at the Fair. We had our three or four days of fall last week and now we're back into summer. High 80s and lots of sun.

Anyway. Not much knitting right now. Maybe tonight.

Have fun at the fair! I know what you mean about summer returning. Yesterday was like +25C, and today is even hotter. I wish it would stay like this all winter, but I doubt it will last much longer. It's usually not too bad here til Jan/Feb, then it's cold and snow!

I'd love to know where Lexa lives (and also how hot 25 degrees is when it's not under freezing). We were enjoying the the brief "autumn" weather here, but I heard that it will be in the 90's today in the "inland valleys" of southern California ...

Have fun at the fair Larry - we went on Sunday and will be back this Saturday. Believe me, you will get way more walking than you do on your usual a.m. hike!

It's ok if you go in some non-knitting spurts...we'll let ya.

Not like i have any room to talk! LOL!

I'm glad you were able to see some people that you've missed while you were picking up those hours.
