home again, jiggity jig

Well, really we got home early Wednesday morning, but that day was for recuperating from the long drive and over-night flight. Yesterday was for taking care of important errands. So today you get the blog post!

I know I meant to write a post or two while I was away, but I was really enjoying my family's company, and also enjoying ignoring my online life. Sometimes a break makes it all seem interesting and worthwhile again. I've slowly been catching up on some of my blog reading, but I think it will be another week before I get to everything. I thought most people took a break during the summer? Anyway, once my hubbie gets the photos all done, I'll show you what we were up to.

I also need to seriously think of getting back into knitting. I promised a squirrel to a little boy a while ago that I really should get done soon. Then I have a big important project to do, which is really exciting, and I can't tell you about yet. I know this bugs you all, but I promise to spill the beans once I'm allowed. Then I need to finish off a couple of toys to finish a set of five I've been working on for a while. I also keeping thinking of offering a few commissions for toys through my Etsy shop, but every time I clear my plate and am ready to go, something new comes up that I can't say no to. I really want to move on to mostly designing, and only make a few toys for sale when I feel like it, but I need to get better at saying no before that can happen.

And you know, I'd love some time to knit for myself! I bought some gorgeous yarn while on holiday, super-soft baby llama from Peru, in a rich heathery teal with some cream for contrast edging. I want to spend some time on Ravelry looking for the perfect pattern, but I just know that little voice in me head will be saying, "shouldn't you be working?"
