This morning I dragged myself out of bed at 3:30 AM so as to make it to Reagan International in time for a series of flights that would take me to Monterey, CA. I’m speaking in one of the classes at the Navy Postgraduate School Information Professional Center of Excellence in the morning and then heading to San Diego. Tuesday morning I speak at a Joint Tactical Radio System S&T conference and then get on the red eye to head back to DC, arriving at 8:30 AM Wednesday and then hustling into the Pentagon in time to give a briefing on future netcentric investment strategies at 10:00 PM.
All this and what I’d really like to do is get home and finish my little mitered bag. I enrolled in Annie Modesitt’s on line course and it’s quite fun! When I should have been packing, I was mitering. I didn’t have enough time to spare to finish it, but I did get a good bit of progress on my class bag. As I was rushing, it’s a bit wonky, but I’m putting a lot of faith into the felting of it to erase my sins. I didn’t bring it with me — too many balls of yarn and a desire to finish the samples and pattern for the Hugs and Kisses socks. I think I may be able to have both complete by the end of the trip. Then I can finish off that little bag! (Then I’ll probably do it again, with more precision and in other colors!)
