Back to work!

Chris and I are officially back to work after having spent a record 19 days on holiday! Granted, 2 of those days were spent in the car, making the 11 hour drive to our family cottage in Nova Scotia, but still, getting 19 consecutive days off is pretty grand. We beat last year's record by 1 day. This year we did a lot of the same things we did last year, you can read all about our cottage life here

We had a great time. We've come home rested, tanned and rejuvenated. We're officially ready for another big year. I'm happy to be back at work, I don't like being away for too long. Things pile up, people need yarn! 

Unfortunately, I have a terrible habit of doing absolutely nothing while on vacation. I completely tune out. I did get some knitting done on a few rainy days, which was nice, but other than that I read, I sat, I walked, I chatted, I played games... I brought a stack of FO's, fully intending to do awesome photo shoots, but when push came to shove I just couldn't make myself do my hair, put on makeup and style an outfit to do the knitting justice. So the pile came back home with me and will have to be photographed here in Montreal instead of on the beach in Nova Scotia.

Stack of FO's, waiting to be photographed.

Next year I'll take more photo's! Famous last words... I did snap one pretty shot of a few rocks that my 5 year old god-daughter and I collected. 

Amherst shore rocks


  1. I spy with my little eye a Stockholm scarf in that stack!!

  2. We all have those days where putting on make up and posing with our FOs are just NOT in the cards.

  3. Doing absolutely nothing is my idea of the perfect vacation!! Sounds like you and Chris had a wonderful time. Can't wait to see what you have planned for the rest of the year. PS - love the picture of the rocks!!

  4. Sounds like an awesome vacation even if there was a pile of stuff to get back too.

  5. I think you did EXACTLY what you're supposed to on vacation, which is nothing! For me, if I am so absorbed in doing nothing that I lose track of the date and the time, then I'm having a perfect vacation!

    Makes it easier to deal with the piles waiting for you, which will be there regardless of how you spend your down time...

  6. Sounds like you had an *awesome* vacation! The rocks photo is simply perfect -- when are you doing more notecards? :)
