What Is Vacation
Now that I’m retired, I’m not quite sure what term to use for leisurely time away from home. When I’m no longer working, is it still considered vacation?
First of all, I hate using this word in a blog post. It invites a shitload of spam. Gratefully, most of it is caught in filters and automatically eliminated here on WordPress. But there will be a handful of comments that will await my approval, even though they are spam
Just so you know, if you’ve never commented before (based on your e-mail address), you comment will need to be approved. After you’ve been approved once, you can comment anytime you’d like and it will post right away.
Anyway, today, we’re heading up to Martha’s Vineyard to spend some time with family (Thaddeus’ sister, brother-in-law and niece).
I love the ocean, swimming, the sun, good food, spending time with family, biking and kayaking. We should get in all of that for the next week. My sister-in-law is a very good cook and we hit a lot of the good restaurants up there. We’ll be staying right on the largest pond on the island and we’ll be renting bicycles.
I can’t wait to be there!
There may not be three blog posts this week, but I’ll see if I can post at least some photos from up there.
But perhaps it will be a vacation from everything! We’ll see.
I’ve finished my knitting samples for the “expert table” on German Short Rows I’ll be hosting next month at the North East Men’s Fall Knitting Retreat.
It might be difficult to see in the samples, but German Short Rows really do make stockinette knitting much smoother looking than other short-row methods.
Now I have to work on my samples for German Twisted Cast-On and Tunisian Crochet.
