Mundane Monday....only worked 11 hours!

I am fortunate enough to work for a major American airline (hint, hint) and have the luxury of being able to trade shifts around. Unfortunately, that often works the other way and I find myself working for other people. Figure if I am nice the first couple of weeks of the year, then I can be evil the rest of the year!?!?! Anyway, doing the single mom thing you never know when you will need someone to work for you because of ill children, school activities, etc. and I figure, in my wee calculating mind, this way I will have some favors to call in later on......

Anyway, worked 10 hours day. My 8, another hour, 45 minutes so someone could go see their house in process of being built and another hour, 15 minutes just because......So I get home. Luckily I only live 4 miles away from work, which really helps. My oldest met me at the door in her Japanese garb, hugged me and announced she was tired and going to bed (only 630pm) and I needed to eat and go to bed too. Nothing like being told your bedtime by a 14 year old.

Did get some knitting done at work today. Am almost to the "straight" part of Clapotis. And hopefully soon I will get some pics made.


First orchid to have rebloom. Wish I could rebloom this nicely. Posted by Hello
So since I have no knitting pictures, I will show this picture of my first orchid I have ever had to rebloom. Usually I just kill them. This one I have had for about 2 years now and it rebloomed right before Christmas. I did manage to have the flower stalk, which looked like it might produce more than 1 flower, to stop at one....but hey, I'll take that! I have another orchid that I have had about six months that I have hopes for since I haven't killed this one.
I am taking my body off to the couch. I might find it in myself to work on the Marsupial bag some. Or I might just veg.....

    That orchid is gorgeous! I've often thought about trying to grow an orchid or two, but I know it'll just die. I have an african violet on my desk at work that I actually got to rebloom. Heh, that sounds like I put effort into it. What I did was almost kill it by forgetting to water it, then repotting it and taking it back to work. It thrived under the fluorescent light of my desk and bloomed like crazy until about a month ago.
