The one thing about working in a law office is figuring out everyone’s sense of humor. Who will laugh at what jokes, who will think your crazy, etc. Fortunately my office is full of Monty Python which makes the nights your stuck there past midnight much more entertaining. This last week, I worked 40 hours of overtime! Yes, that is an 80 hour work week, and I was exhausted, but start cracking monty python lines about 11:00 p.m., and at least your laughing instead of crying.
Because of these insane hours there has been little to no knitting. I have taken a brief hiatus from my last sleeve of Gatherin Intentions and the felted Diamond Mitered purse to quickly knit up some face cloths and soap sacks. Boss’ Day is next week, and I wanted to do something special for my attorneys. The men folk I just bought them something, but I wanted to do something by hand for the one female attorney I work for, as she appreciates and craves the simpler things in life. So I made up two face cloths and little soap sacks. Then I purchased soap from Robin who makes the most lovliest hand-made soaps, and some lotion (which I discovered is even lovlier then her soap!), along with some other relaxation bath salts, and packaged them up in a lovely basket. I must say it was the cutest gifts I’ve put together in a long time. But I didn’t take a picture. However she absolutely love it! Since my boss were in town yesterday I went ahead and gifted the presents as I never know when they will all be around at the same time.
Now I’m knitting 3 more little face cloths and soap sack sets as thank you gifts to the 3 women who helped me survive and get all the work that had to be done in the super-intense 80 hour work week last week.
But guess what! My husband is now employed. He started his new job this Monday, so this is what Abner and Django have been doing every morning. They are not used to Nick leaving, for the past 2 1/2 years he’s been home after his broken leg and illness. Last October we rescued Django to keep Abner company when Nick returned to the work-force, but its taken a full-year to have that happen.
