I knitted on the blue and white scarf during chemo, yesterday, and again, last night. Finally, this morning, I was able to finish knitting it. I would have liked it to have been a bit longer, but the length was determined by the amount of white yarn I had left in the stash. I briefly considered buying another skein of white yarn, but decided against it. I am trying to use up my stash of yarn, not add to it. I was able to use up the leftover blue yarn to add the tassels which added a bit to the overall length. I will set aside this scarf to be given as a holiday gift, this year. Since it was made entirely with leftover yarn from another project, it makes a very frugal gift. One work-in-progress completed! 7, possibly 8, more to go!
I woke up really early, this morning! Just after 4:00 a.m.! After going to sleep after 1:30 a.m.! I tried going back to sleep, but I was wide awake. I lay in bed until 5:30 a.m. before I gave up trying to sleep and got up. Had a cup of tea and then, went on-line for a bit.
At 6:30 a.m., I logged onto the office and worked on some of my office assignments for the week. I am not required to work only during office hours during this period of working from home during cancer treatment. As long as I put in the required number of hours each week and complete my assignments, I can work at anytime during the day or night, weekends and weekdays and thus work around my treatments when I have to be at the clinic. Such a blessing I can do that. I was quite productive this morning and got a lot of the assignment completed.
Took a break around 9:00 a.m. to have breakfast - French toast to use up the last of the bread before it got too stale.
After I did the morning's office work, I finished knitting the scarf.
I will do a little sewing on the Flower Garden quilt in the afternoon, when there is daylight (better for my eyes). I'll do the rest of this day's office work in the evening. I am working now, during the weekend, while I still feel fine, in anticipation of being fatigued and wanting to nap later, during the week.
Daughter is off to do the week's grocery shopping and run errands for me. What a blessing that she can do that for me.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Feeling well this morning; no nausea, no fatigue.
- Being able to work from home at my convenience.
- Daughter doing the grocery shopping and running errands for me.
- Finishing up one of the in-progress projects and a frugal holiday gift.
- A warm, sunny day.
How is your Saturday? Are you having a good start to your weekend?
