Craft Notes and Work Notes

My work assignment for the morning was tending to the wife of a colleague while he was in surgery. (I should explain that he works in my organization, but she works for my company. In fact, she has the job I had before my current one.) Anyway, she'd been asking me to teach her to knit or crochet for a while, so I bought her a pair of knitting needles (size 8), a crochet hook (size I-9) and some worsted weight yarn and let her choose which she wanted to start on. She started on crocheting and was doing reasonably well with chain stitch and single crochet.

I had, by the way, brought along a needlepoint canvas that I started a long time ago and put away in a drawer and sort of forgot about.

The surgery went well and I was able to call into the office and report that by about 11.

Then I had a more normal Monday at work, plowing through weekly reports. I summarize the news for a large group of people within our office and others we interact with, as well as coming up with a Top 5 for senior leaders. It always takes longer than I think it should partly because I have a short attention span, but also because of the time spent looking up acronyms.

I suspect my morning was more useful.
