Back to Work

Well, retirement didn’t last long for me.  I decided to take a part-time job about two weeks ago — back with the same school district but in a very different kind of position.  My schedule is pretty much the same as DH’s so we still have a lot of time off together.  So far I’m really enjoying myself.

Each year just before school would start, I would make a notebook for the year’s notes and “to-do” lists.  It was really helpful to keep everything in one place and easy to refer back to past projects, etc.  This job has a lot of to-do’s 🙂 so I decided to keep with tradition.  I like steno books because the pages are divided into two columns.  Layering scrapbook papers, stickers, tags, brads — I love to embellish notebooks.  It’s a great way to use up scrapbooking “scraps”.  And a fun way to add the personal touch to all those lists I tend to make.  (One year for Christmas, I made embellished all types and sizes of notebooks for friends and co-workers.  They were such a hit, that folks were requesting them the next year.)

The new job is wrecking havoc with my knitting/stitching/blogging time.  It’s also taking away from time to do the housework, but I’m not so much bothered by that 🙂

I have been knitting and have picked a new cross-stitch pattern.  I’ll have a UFO project update soon.

Have a great autumn day!

One thought on “Back to Work

  1. Oh good, another cross stitcher. Can’t wait to see it. It’s a shame to waste that precious time on housework when you could be knitting or stitching or playing with pups.
