Happy May First!

Well, I have been trying to write a post for almost a week, but I couldn't bring myself to start what should be a huge long thing and so I have been avoiding it. I actually hate to write and don't think I am good at it . I always have to convince myself that I am only going to write a few sentances and then just stop whenever. So that is what I am doing now.

Posting a picture and writing something, just to get back into the swing of the thing.

These socks are my finish for April. They are "Monkey Socks" from Cookie A. The yarn is Opal, in a colorway that wasn't planned to match my sofa. That was a coincedence.

Michel is back in the Congo. He left last Tuesday and is supposed to stay for two months. Right before he comes back the boys and I will leave for 6 weeks vacation in California. Our planning leaves something to be desired, but we do the best we can.

I have spent most of the last week trying to get my house back together . While Michael was here I barely managed to keep us fed and in clean underwear. Now it's back to the grindstone with the addition of everything I avoinded doing the last 4 weeks. When will someone invent self-cleaning houses?
Anyway I am ging to aim for a short post every couple of days. Maybe with a picture or two of our vacation.

Hi Rachael! Back to the grindstone is where I need to be today too, but it's soooo hard when you've been totally lazy for days. :)

Glad to see your post today and your great socks!

It's great to see you back, Rachael!! Did you get my letter?? I'm really sorry that getting together fell through while you were in Holland. :(

Those socks are great! Take care, and keep in touch.

Annemarie said...

Hooray, she's blogging again! Michaels' back in the Congo AGAIN? Poor all of you! And you're going to California again this year. Yippie. Make sure all your passports are in order...

Fab-oh socks, by the way. I still haven't tried my hnd at any of those, though I keep fondling the sock yarn!

I love the socks, although I am sure they are even more "wow" when they don't blend in with the sofa.
It was great to talk with you today, maybe we can get back on track too.
Catch you soon.

Nice to hear from you Rachael! I was just starting to get worried!! OK with you if Su mails my RR to you when she is finished? She has it now, but I don't think she has started it quite yet...

Dianne said...

It was nice to hear from you Rachael. I do check to see as I am interested in my German/Californian pal. : ) Have fun in CA!
I love your monkey socks too!

The socks look good. You don't have to be a 'writer' to have a blog. It is for you and you write what you want when you want and how much or little you want. You only need to please yourself. Don't worry about anyone else.
It is for YOU, not us!
