Scotland Pictures

So, Scotland Rocks! I am part way through my travel entry. I decided it best to just write and not try to blog it as it goes. It is coming along nicely, but it is turning into a novel. I do have pictures, tho. Say, 600 plus, but they won’t all get added. I fell in love with the Highlands. It is the most beautiful place I have ever been.  Here are some pictures.

Glencoe my favorite place AND Hamish The Scottish Bull

Edinburgh

Well we made it! It took us three hours to get from Austin to San Antonio because my cousin was hung over! It really was a trip. Once in San Antonio and checked in, we felt like we were really on our way. The plane rides were uneventful as they should be, you know?

Edinburgh is a beautiful city. From the air and on the ground! It’s cool here too! Actually wearing my mittens and hat! We spent the afternoon, after checking in to our B&B, and showering we went and walked around Prince St. I got a few trinkets to bring home, but that was it mostly.

Just enjoying the city and the weather!

New Member of the Family

lazlo.jpgPeaches has a boyfriend. He’s quite a few years younger than she is, like 10, but that’s all good, right? Peaches is my chihuahua terrier mix, and she’s 10 1/2 years old. Yesterday, Lazlo joined the family. He’s a full blooded beagle, about 11 weeks old. This is a bad picture taken by my phone! Isn’t he sweet. No knitting news! I’m slacking!

Work has been tough lately. My boss doesn’t give positive feed back, so I have to remember the days she doesn’t say anything are good days. Sometimes, that’s hard. I just know it’s because the holidays are coming, and well, we are just preparing to get our bums whipped. It’s what happens in December, every December. I have been debating whether or not I will stay on. I’ve thought about quitting once market is over, but I just don’t know yet. I’ll think about that more after I come back from Scotland. Which is coming up, because it’s NOVEMBER!

It’s been a struggle lately. Halloween was good, the kids had fun, but just finding the energy to be there hard. I wanted to hide out in my house, and not deal with it. It just seems so overwhelming for me right. I haven’t been knitting much. I want to, sit down and plan to, put in a movie, but then lose all interest in it. I’ve looked for new patterns, thought if I got new yarn, or whatever that it would inspire me, but it’s not. I haven’t even had the energy to go to the LYS to fondle the yarn. That’s not like me.

I’m whiny and rambling. So sorry. It’s the grey clouds they are making me do it.
