.... but happy.
The job is awesome, I can't believe that I have the opportunity to work for a company that actually provides the compassionate care that every person deserves. The goal of patient care is the patient's un-questionable satisfaction, comfort and quality of life. Amazing. The staff work together and actually LIKE each other! Incredible. The company puts patient care and comfort ahead of profit and ends up profitable anyway. Un-freaking-believable.
Rhinebeck was a blast. It's funny. I read tons of blogs from people I know who were there and I didn't run into a single one. I went to lengths to avoid the Ravelry, Blogger Bingo and celebrity entourages. So I had a great time with much smaller crowds. I'm just not into all that stuff. I was there with a very real friend and a brand new and excited knitter. That's what a fiber festival is about for me. Oh, there was buying involved. :)
Convention apparently went just fine without me and 2 beautiful Thriantas came home from Michigan to my barn (thanks to another very dear friend who went out of his way to help me with this transaction), one of which is the BOS Sr Doe. Both bring with them the fur and color qualities I need in my own herd and I look forward to breedings this winter.
It's been a very busy month for me...but very satisfying and I'm very happy.

Hi! i added your blog to my browsing list a while back and just popped in today by accident. I am glad you had fun at Rhinebeck; I was there too (having come on a bus from greater Boston). I missed all the "large group" stuff - mostly because I only had 5.5 hours to see everything (which I didn't, of course). I thought i would write you a note since you had no comments (which is just how my Rhinebeck post looks!). I haven't yet posted photos of my purchases, but I have been having fun using Google to search out other's additions to their "yarn treasuries".

congratulations on the new job. I used to work as an EMT on an ambulance and I understand completely the honor of being with someone at their last moments.
