What a glorious day! There is so much to tell. Last week, I was offered (and accepted) a job – teaching knitting!!! It is one day a week, at a wellness center. The woman who is currently teaching the knitting class is moving and I have been asked to teach the next round of classes beginning in April. Today I subbed for her since she is under the weather. It was great – I really think I can do this and have already met a lot of interesting women (do only interesting people knit?). Take a look at what they said about me in the class description ::blush:: did you read that part about extraordinaire?? also did you note the belly dancing classes – I may take the plunge, stay tuned for more details ….
Afterward, I went to lunch with my good friend Ricki and her father Victor. How decadent to be lunching at a fabulous restaurant complete with bottle of wine! Ricki is marvelous – one of the nicest women I know and her father is a wonderful, courtly man. It also added to the day that I was traveling in style in Ricki’s new car.
As if all this isn’t enough for a body to stand – Daughter #1 is at this very moment competing for a spot on a college equestrian team. I have gotten updates from the Boar saying how great she is doing. They may end up staying overnight, but at the very least won’t be home until much, much later. Daughter #2 has been hired to babysit for my sister-in-law. They are going away for the weekend and taking D#2 with them. She leaves tonight.
all of this means that I am about to have the house to myself!
knitting + money + lunch + wine + solitude = :)
happier than a pig in shit – oink!
