Monday, Monday

Can't trust that day...

So, you're still here. Last Monday, a holiday for some (including me), presented me with my last bit of calm for the remainder of the working week. I think that I cobbled together a post once last week, but a work deadline sucked all of my attentions, including knitting ones. You can tell when I'm tired and tell when I'm stressed when I don't want to knit. And for most of last week, I didn't want to knit.

Luckily, I made the most of my Monday. I'm happy that I did because that was the last my DPNs saw of me for the entire week.

Nothing like a large mocha at Le Pain Quotidian. I sat at the long table in the center of the room, happily knitting and ignoring the man who sat across from me. He was really trying hard to impress everyone in the room, especially the 20-something woman from South Korea to his left. "I'm a actor!" he told her. "And I'm pretty good."

Good grief. Actually at that, I had to finish up quickly and leave. The sight of a man who should be old enough to know better, hitting on a woman who's a third his age always makes me uncomfortable.

What will this Monday bring? Hopefully a workweek with better work-life balance.

 

Oh I love those long tables at Le pain quotidien, you never know who you'll be sitting near!

That's funny to read about Le pain quotidien here. It was our spot for knitting-café in Lille, last years.

mm that yarn looks great! Here's hoping for a good work-life balance this week. :)

Sorry you had such a week. It's not fair when life thinks it's more important than our creative pursuits! I really like the looks of whatever that is on your DPNs. I s that yarn hard on your hands? Hope you have a relaxed week.

I love the communal tables at le pain quotodien too! And their croissants are so good... The sandwiches too. And the coffee! Drats, I've made myself hungry now.

Oh, a mocha sounds like it would solve lots of Monday blahs. Excuse me, I've got to run across the street right now.

Keeping my fingers crossed for a better work-week for you!

Glad to see you claw your way back to the land of the knitting :o)

They just opened a Pain Q a few blocks from work, on Hudson--Jane Jacobs is rolling in her grave, no doubt, but I'm psyched!

He's "pretty good", eh? If I was feeling a bit evil, I would have started asking what he has played in. Then said things like, "never heard of it", or "I heard that got really bad reviews" etc. Just to mess with him. That may require more than 1 large caffeinated drink, though...

You need to practice ZEN knitting, it reduces stress, and produces results! I had the same kind of week, but found time on the airplane coming home to get back to stressfree! Didn't even get stopped by TSA this time!

Cracking up at this posting. We use Office Communicator as an instant messaging system at work and today my message was "Monday, Monday .... can't trust that day."

A sixty something hitting on a lil 20 YO? Hello! That's SOP in LA...
