Well, back from our seaside vacation and back into the fray. After a raucous 12-year old boy pool party/birthday in the backyard we are getting into the fall-wise swing of things here at chez YawnOver. School starts tomorrow! for my kids.
It's been a great summer...much more fun than I expected to be temporarily unemployed. But like my pal ADD and others of you out there I find my fall semester coming up faster than expected. Glad as I am to be getting back to work I am already a wee bit nostalgic for those lazy days at home with the kids. And the knitting...oh, the knitting :)
So, like my kids who are hiding downstairs frantically cramming in as many last minute video games as possible (no, they aren't allowed to play on school days/nights, yes I am mean), I am upstairs frantically photographing and Raveling all my hastily begun knitting projects, organizing them into neat little bags, clickety-clicking some last-minute favorites and queue-able stuff on Rav, and putting all of the above (well, not the kids) on the back burner for awhile.
Now, I'm off to do some clickety-clicking on my syllabi and BlackBoard pages and return a few emails...and fill in my snazzy new academic year planner with my snazzy new mechanical pencils heh heh. (This part of back-to-school I never outgrew.)
Here are some parting shots. Note that most are at about 55% completion...I wonder what that says about me?

Goodbye my dahlinks. I will try to knit on you occasionally on the sidelines at the kids' games...but...don't expect too much. I just need...a little space...
Happy back to school to you, whatever that means in your world :)
