I finished my citrine socklets last Friday. I had several hours of uninterupted knitting...it was on a school bus, but it still wasn't the same as regular work. I also knit for a little while while looking out at the ocean since I just happened to have my socklets in my coat pocket.
Every year, one of my fellow teachers and I take our shared honors students on a trip to Heart Castle. It takes about two hours to get there We let the student walk around the town of Cambria for a while before we go up to the castle to see the IMAX movie about how great William Randoph Hearst...I'm not convinced, but I get that he wasn't totally evil either. We take the evening tour of the castle, which highlights the best features of the four daytime tours. It really is incredible. I've probably been to the castle twenty times or more, and it still is awesome to me.
