The Joy of Summer!
What I like the most of my new job is this whole
on call thing. I have 1 or 2 penciled shift but I may get a call here and there to pick up the shift of my colleagues so I manage to collect about 20-25 hours/week which makes my living sufficient. Wouldn't do that for ever but for now I just LOVE it!
The other thing I love the most about my summer is what you see. Getting together with bunch of friends, sun, suncreen, beer and... knitting.
What I like the most about that statement is that, for some reason, people are always surprise to see a 35 years old young lady knitting at unusual places. As far as I can remember, I couldn't be empty handed. It drives Eric NUTS that I carry all kinds of shit everywhere I go (yarn, needles, crochets, polymer clay etc.) but IF I have an urge of doing something, it's there, THe good thing about knitting, unless you make a very large afghan, it doesn't take much place and I can get my stuff out anytime, anywhere!
Just a little anecdote... when I was about 23-24, I use to commute in the Montreal Subway and I use to carry knitting with me. Once, I was shopping at the Gap and I got to the cashier. She started to litterally STARE at me and said in that loud and admirative voice "OMG you're the girl who knits in the Subway! That's F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!"... I liked being the Knitting girl from the subway...
