I have some photos of the socks I'm trying to finish for PK's birthday next week. I 'm using the Inna GaDa vida yarn that I spun. I'm really pleased with them so far. I'm doing them toe up because he likes them better and I'm just working on the first heel. This is a totally doable goal (I just keep telling myself this). I have some photos and I'll share them because the yarn is beautiful. But they're at home and those photos are for another day.

Today is a federal holiday here in the US. It's Presidents' Day. We used to celebrate both Washington and Lincon's birthdays which were both in Feb but someone several years ago decided to lump all the presidents together and thus Presidents' Day. There are usually sales and schools, post offices, and most businesses are closed. I'm working which is why the photos of the sock are at home.....

These words were the Inspiration of the Day and in light of the difficulties I have been having at work they seemed so appropriate:

Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.

This is one of the truest statements. I'm going to put it up on my board in front of my desk to remind me of the power of my words. When I teach crisis management, I always try to remember to end with this:

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can break my heart.

Something to think about. Too profound for a Monday morning?

I'm amazed how often you work on a public holiday. It's just unheard of here, unless you are in a job where you have absolutely no choice.

Monday is very good day for the profound. It's a good way to start the week, I think.

Here's hoping the day goes well even if you have to be stuck at work.

I'd be working, too, were it not for my crazed schedule. Doesn't it suck to have people say, "why are you working, it's a holiday?"

Thanks for all your support and for reminding me you're here for me. Fifty miles isn't very far, but sometimes the enormity of being in PA while all my roots are in NJ sneaks up on me.

A good and thoughtful start to the week.

You need a vacation, honey. Somewhere far away from your office. With no phone to call them, and no internet to connect with them.
