The City of Crochet

Crocheting...an escape from everyday life in Europe as I face the perils of yarn shopping in a foreign country and dealing with all of the crazy looks I get for crocheting & knitting on the public transportation system.

It has to get better one of these days....

Mu blogging that is!  I am ashamed that I have not been blogging that much.  Time just does not seem to materialize to where I can grab a few minutes.  Plus a major case of sleep deprivation leading to a mind that is numb and barely functioning does not exactly result in a stimulating blog post!
 
I've started another round of traveling.  I am in Zürich for 3 days this week, in Dublin for the weekend, back to Zürich for 3 days next week and then potentially off to Oktoberfest two weekends in a row depending on travel schedules of some friends.  Plus I want to take a trip to Versailles and Mont Saint Michel in France, perhaps visiting the Beaches of Normandy and the town Alecon where my family came from. 
 
My return to the US is still not known.  It will be sometime this fall, but so far I have not found a job back in Chicago with my company.....anyone know of a company wanting to hire a finance manager with a lot of International experience?  =)
 
Crafting is at an all time low, just not the time as my work days have been 11+ hour days once again.  As I keep saying, I'll be back to normal craftiness one of these days!
 
One of the best parts about moving back to the US would be a return to more normal working hours, which should hopefully allow me more time for knitting and crocheting and other fun assorted projects.  Also better access to yarn, so when I have the urge to make something I'll have fast access if it does not exist in my stash. 
 
I had best get back to inputting my budget - I hope that everyone is doing well and will be in touch soon!!

    Don't feel so bad. I think everyone has neglected their blogs! You most certainly have not.

    I hope that you feel better. I know that the crafting will come along at high speed for you again in no time. :)

    I like the flicker project year photo's! Nice addition!

    Life gets the best of us sometimes.

    I wouldn't love to be doing your job doing someone's budget but I would love to be visiting some of the places you mentioned in your post. For even the US can get to be hum-drum sometimes.

    Hang in there. Chicago is a great place to live too. Good luck in your job search.

    God Bless.
