Contrary to popular belief, I haven’t quite fallen off the face of the earth. To say that the last month has been busy would be a mild understatement. I don’t use this space to talk about work – suffice to say that the project in Chattanooga has consumed most of my time recently. Four months ago today I arrived on the project – today was the big milestone – “go live” with the new application. That doesn’t mean that my work is slowing down any – in fact, it will be just as busy as the last month. All that to say…I’ve missed writing out here, keeping up to date with blog friends and doing a lot of the things that find their way onto the pages of Amy Artisan.
This will be a brief post…sleep is definitely calling my name this evening.
First, thanks to everyone for your sweet birthday comments for my Grandma. We have printed out the comments for her – she is so tickled that all my friends would leave wishes for her. When I was home Labor Day weekend I did the simple dishcloth knitting as a de-stresser. One evening while we were all in the great room Grandma looked at me knitting and commented “I’m so glad you learned how to knit.” I am too!
There is very little to report on the knitting front recently – the long hours working have meant little time to knit while on the road. Also, not so much reading has been happening either.
A highlight of the last month was the return of Pink Martini to Chicago! It was a great SOLD OUT concert at the House of Blues. As we were waiting to go inside & everying was queueing up in line you could see the same expression on each face…wow, I can’t believe this many people in Chicago like/know Pink Martini. The set was a different order than I’ve heard before and a lot of the arrangements were just a bit different than previous concerts. It was a lovely evening which started with a fun dinner at Bin 36 – one of my favorite Chicago restaurants.
To those of you who’ve sent emails asking if everything was alright – thank you. To my sister, now you don’t have to leave nasty comments asking for a new post. : )
I have several posts bouncing around in my head – hopefully I will be able to put e-pen to e-paper soon and return to the “normal” Amy Artisan entries that I enjoy creating.
