Vacation Hangover

This is the cabana we stayed in in Belize.

Isn’t it cute?

This is Pompillion Caye where we went snorkeling. Postcard beautiful. Those are pelicans taking a rest from dive-bombing the fish.

I can’t believe how long it is taking me to get over my vacation. I miss the sun and beach and atmosphere so much. I was so removed from my normal existence in Belize. Everything was different. That’s what made it such a great vacation.

And the crush! Ugh, it’s killing me. I know it’s over but I can’t shake this guy. Now that my hormones are normalizing, I think I will be feeling less anxious. He replied to my email, my heart was pounding and it was taking forever to open (Yahoo was so slow yesterday). It was a friendly, polite message, but nothing more than that. Oh, well. It was a fun couple of days.

Ok, you caught me.

I am cheating.

In between gift socks and swap socks, I am knitting a spiral scarf for myself. Once the yarn gets here, I will start my Holiday Sock Swap socks. I promise!

And my father’s scarf.
And finish my mother’s socks.
And weave in the ends on my cousins scarf.
And block that and the other cousin’s scarf.
And try to squeeze in hats and a scarf for my nieces and nephew in Maine.

That is so cute! I love the green paint on the outside too.

GREAT scarf!

Hope you are well~it is hard to transition back after a holiday in paradise! (especially since it got so cold in DC so fast! brr)

Wow, I think you just sold me on a vacation to Belize. It really looks like a great place to just breathe, relax and knit. Getting back to real life is so hard!

Looks like you may need to create a calender to fnish all the holiday knitting.
