Hello Monday!


Marc is in Korea this week - he left yesterday morning and won't be home until Sunday night. This is his first trip to Asia since early January; I hope a week out of the office cheers him up. The house seems oddly silent and empty without him. I guess we are both out of the habit of international travel.

But a week on my own (in the comfort of home) is certainly appealing. I have knitting projects to finish (Portis is nearly done) and start (I'm going to cast on the little baby hats today and thanks to AsKatKnits, I snagged yarn for Sigla - on major sale at Craftsy - and should be ready to cast on as soon as it arrives), plans to meet up with friends and watch (finally!!) the last season of Mad Men, a much-needed hair appointment ... and not much else.

Unless the baby decides to come early.

What's on your list this week?

  1. Travel to Asia never cheers John up because of the long flights and 12 hour time difference, but like you, I relish time home alone. It sounds like a great week!

  2. Sounds like you've got good things planned, I hope you won't get too lonesome. Dale has never traveled for work, only the occasional night away with his band or a Civil War weekend away, so this isn't something I've ever had to cope with and I'm glad for that.

  3. Sounds like you have a peaceful week ahead - nice! I am so tempted with Sigla......but I really also want to knit Stopover which I never got to last year.....

  4. I am envious of your time alone (at least in theory, that is) You have good things planned and I am itching to cast on as well! Do I hope for the baby to come early? Or not? XO

  5. I would love to have a few days of alone time - not sure about a whole week. Unless my week looked like the one you have planned. Enjoy your alone time!

  6. Hoping his trip is uneventful and your week productive and peaceful. I'm never alone in my home for more than thirty minutes, so your week of having time just to be, sounds blissful :). Oh, more knitting projects sound exciting ...

  8. Like Alexa, seldom home alone for an entire week - maybe a day...enjoy your solitude and uninterrupted project/viewing time...my list ebbs and flows...so much to do, so little time ;-}}. Cheers~

  10. Smith traveled for work years ago (never out of the country) and I enjoyed time alone, but now, even a late night at work gives me pause. It sounds like you have some lovely ways to spend your time.

  11. Lol, now that it's Friday-I had nothing to do during the week except for work, but am meeting up with my quilting girls on Sunday. Looking forward to just going to the fitness center in the morning and then hopefully a full day of knitting!
