There is no place like home. I just got in from our annual team retreat. My unit serves three campuses and two satellite campuses. Every year the team comes together to talk about what we accomplished in the previous year and to set goals for the coming year(s). Two of us are stationed in Chicago and four in Urbana. So the Chicago group gets to travel and stay overnight. We retreat for a day and half then return to our respective sites and jobs with assigned goals in hand. As I anxiously headed for home, my only thought was to comfortably retire to my bedroom.
The plan is not to go into the office tomorrow as most of my group will work from home. Illinois has been hit with rain and snow storms the last few days. We expect another tonight. The temps are between 10 and 19 degrees. I'm so glad to be home.
I was able to complete the alterations. Now I can get back to my sewing projects. I must admit I was able to read portions of several sewing and crocheting books, finishing two hats, two scarfs, and started a caplet. My crocheting and knitting skills are probably advanced beginner. I've never made a complicated article like a sweater, tunic, or dress. Lately, I been inspired by so many sewists/crafters to try something a little more complex; I have to work my way up to it.
Sigh! Sigh! It's good to be home.
