monday, tuesday, home!

Honestly, I love living in Canada because we do get quite a few long weekends and employers tend to be a bit more generous on holidays (though not as generous as in Europe!). Monday was a long weekend here and I still have a few weeks of holidays to use up before the end of the year. The Babe was on some climbing epic so I had a lovely, lazy weekend at home doing ....well, pretty much nothing. Bliss. I thought I would share one of my mornings in pictures with you - even the cat enjoyed being lazy.

I am progressing on my Annikki - I have 3/4 of the back done and 3/4 of both fronts. I had to stop at that point because I am stuck in the pattern and need to go to a drop-in knitting class to get past there. I am also working on some cable socks - one is almost done.

I have been doing a lot of photography, but right now I am a bit flummoxed. I am trying to capture something in a certain way and in a certain style and it is not working - the pictures are not turning out the way I want them to. I don't know if any of you have the same issues, however, I am frustrated by it. It's like I can't transfer what I see and feel through the lens to the image. Composition is really hard...I look at other people's photos and see something that is missing in mine. Oh well, I am going to a photo show tonight - maybe some of the pros will give me some pointers.

Hope you all have a great weekend.
