Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder...?

Is that true? Did my month-long hiatus make you yearn for another Beta post? Haha.

I'm not really sure why it's taken me so long to update this. I'll assume its a good thing and means that I was having a wonderful and busy August.
I did get to take 3 vacations:

  • A weekend in NYC with Passionknitly
  • a week in Rhode Island to catch a Jimmy Buffett concert
  • and a week in Key Largo w/ parents at my aunt's summer house
I should add that I LOVE the benefits at my job ;)

Also, sandwiched between the 2 big vacations was a busy week at work where I didn't get home before 10pm the whole week. We had all of our international staff members in town and we had to show them a good time of course. The 'good times' included a Nationals Game (its hard explaining baseball to people from Indonesia, Kenya, India, etc), a walk around Adams Morgan and Dupont circle at night, ethiopian food, a barbecue on Capitol Hill, and a happy hour at the Front Page.
Ok, so maybe my "busy week at work" isn't really anything to complain about.

I do have photographic evidence of the last month's adventures, as well as a 75% complete falling leaves sock but they'll have to wait for now.

Lately I've been sacrificing knitting time for reading.
Recent reads* include The Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri and The Jungle by Upton Sinclair. Next on the docket is My √Āntonia by Willa Cather.
