The rain they've been predicting all week has finally come to So Cal, but earlier this week, we were still experienceing spectacular sunsets.
This week has been interesting. Work has been stressful, and my evenings are filled with knitting, hanging out with Sam and Freddy, (who now eats from his seed mix! Way to go Freddy!), and watching videos on Graboid.com. Check it out. I was able to download videos of episodes from a couple of my favorite British TV shows that are not yet available in the United States. Graboid offers some viewing for free, and then different priced plans.
I am making progress with my sweater; since it's knit in the round, it's delightfully mindless and quick.


On the bad news side of things, it looks like I'm going to have some surgery in late March that will require a hospital stay and some recovery time off work. My primary concern is that I'll be healed in time to go to Maui the last week of May. I've never had a hospital stay, and only had minor surgery on an out-patient basis.

I am not happy about this news.

Wow--I wouldn't be happy either! Hope all goes smoothly between now and then. That Maui trip will be a great reward. :)

You should stop working on that sweater now and sue it as a skirt.

I'm sure everything will be fine and you will absolutely love Maui. Focus on that.

When I first saw that sunset pic, I thought it was Monument Valley.

I understand your nervousness about the hospital, but speaking as someone who has been hospitalized on several occasions, I can say you don't have much to worry about. It's not as bad as you think it will be. I hope your surgery goes well. On the upside - morphine drip!

Edit beat me to it! I was going to say at least you'll have a morphine drip and Oprah on the tube. Ahhh that's actually my idea of a great vacation.

I, too, am a fan of morphine drips. I will keep good thoughts for you as your surgery approaches. You're the picture of health, you'll do great and be back on your feet in no time.
