June 17, 2013

I am finally back home after a long five days of wedding activities. The past five days were a blur of sleep deprivation and stress. The wedding was beautiful, with a short and touching ceremony. The reception faced a few hiccups but over all was a resounding success. The biggest thing for me has been readjusting to being back home, I am still not there yet.

The exhaustion is still lingering, emotionally, mentally and physically. I definitely had to scrape the bottom of the barrel in terms of introverted reserves a couple of times this weekend. I am always amazed at the sheer amount of energy it takes to be around a lot of people and just how long it can take to recover.  Today I have little to nothing planned, which surprisingly is more difficult than it sounds. I find myself wanting to jump into some project or another, to try to cross everything off my lists and just generally not take the very needed time to relax. I don’t know if it is because I have been gone and so it feels like I have been slacking, or if it is left over nerves from wanting the whole thing to come together, but whatever it is, the challenge is there.

In knitting news, I didn’t get nearly as much accomplished as I had hoped in terms of socks, I am on to the foot of the second malabrigo yarn and still have a few inches before the toes. In terms of the big blanket gift, it was well received and I can only hope it will be well-loved. It ended up being more of a lap blanket, but at the end of the day (and after the months of preparation) I can’t do anything but let it go and move on. I do think they enjoyed the scrap-book containing photos and blog entries about the progress of their blanket.

In spinning news, well there isn’t much progress over all, I decided rather easily to leave the drop spindle behind this past weekend. I did end up deciding to return the soiled fiber from the festival. The shop owner was really good about it and the experience was one of the best I have had considering the situation, so I am hopeful this whole thing will be behind me soon.

Other than that there isn’t much to share. I want to thank everyone for your well  wishes for my brother and his wife, and all your support with the blanket along the way, it was really great to be able to share with you and with them the journey from concept to reality.


How was your weekend?

  1. Me too, I find it very hard to be in company of more than 4 people. Parties, weddings etc. are definitely a no for me if I can get out of it. I don’t dislike people – far from it, I just find it difficult. Enjoy your cooling off period.

  2. So glad to have found your blog. As a fellow introvert I know exactly what you mean by the energy it takes to be around people and have to be “on” for an extended period of time, and the need to recover from it afterward. Returning items to a seller is also a serious challenge for we introverts. Bravo to you!
