Cautious Optimism

I thank you for all of your good wishes on my first day at the new job.

As first days go - this was a really good one. I arrived to find a really warm welcome. I don't want to speak to soon but I'm cautiously optimistic about this new job. All of the signs say that this is a good situation.

I was reminded of a few very important things today. It was silly of me to have worn new shoes today. I know better than to wear new shoes to anything important without breaking them in first. They looked really cute but, after a day full of meet and greet I am paying the price for my folly. Speaking of folly, what was I thinking blowing my hair out straight today? I did sit and listen to the weather report this morning but apparently it didn't really sink in at all. The humidity did a number on my carefully considered 'do the moment I stepped out of my front door. Thankfully, these were relatively minor concerns and didn't really mar the day much.

Vari blue and purpleMore good news! After quite a hiatus I finally have a little spinning news to report. When I wind this off the bobbin it will make up the second skein for my Hanami Stole. The first was a gently varigated blue plyed against itself. I'll show it to you when it's dry.

I'm still not sure if I'll have enough yarn for the project but, I think that if I need to, I can come up with a solution. I'll keep you posted.

Isn't it amazing how far behind you can get on your email and blog reading in just a few days? I hope to catch up soon.

You can fall behind so quickly when it comes to blog reading! Hopefully you'll be back to stealth blogging from work very soon. ;-)

I'm glad you had a good first day, aside from the shoes. That is an easy one to forget! That yarn for your stole is looking very lovely!

Seems like you're back on track. If your st day yielded sore feet and poofy hair, you did really good!
