|Evil Easter Bunny plant|
Whether you pray to the church or Cadbury, I hope your Easter was enjoyable. Mine was.... wonderful and as terrifying as that bunny plant. Easter Sunday marked the end of working ten straight days of 10 to 14 hour shifts. After not working all winter, the week was an interesting experiment in sleep deprivation & burn out. By Friday I was struggling to do the simplest tasks, things like counting to ten and remembering to take the top off the pen before I tried to write and yet, I could still do the complicated things without much trouble. By Saturday, I was starting to turn mean and by Easter Sunday, I was oddly okay. Although I was working on only about four hours sleep, I was much more energized and I felt like I was thinking much clearer. Pretty amazing what a handful of jellybeans can do for your attitude!
Working that many hours, absolutely no knitting got done all week. Even my Knit Picks order sat unopened on my desk for four days before I had a chance to open it. I can't wait to show you what it contained. It's rainy and gross and dark and dreary in the house today but hopefully the sun will shine once again tomorrow and I can get some decent photos. I bought a bunch of Stroll Gradient and it definitely deserves sunshine.
And now, I'm going to go catch up on my knitting. Catch up on my knitting and binge watch Shetland on Netflix. Have you seen Shetland? If not, you must! It's a crime/detective show that takes place in the Shetland Islands. I have to admit, I end up paying more attention to the knitting than I do the storylines but.... the scenery is perfect to knit to!
