So, Gorgeous Man is currently in Portland, Maine. He left on Monday and will be back late Monday night. I’ve been telling Gorgeous Girl that Daddy will be home Tuesday since she will be asleep when he gets home. Thankfully a friend is picking him up from the airport so I don’t need to get Gorgeous Girl out of bed to sit in a carpark waiting.
I’ve been surprised at how much Gorgeous Girl has understood where Daddy has gone. I think our trip to Australia has helped somewhat since she has been on a plane and knows what one is. She was most worried that they would give Daddy food and drink on the plane, which was very sweet. She has been telling people “Daddy gone. On a plane, to ‘merica”. I explained about different countries, and later that day she asked me what T’s (the girl who watches her while I’m working) country was. I was staggered that she had absorbed the abstract information.
Life is hectic without Gorgeous Man here, and I always have chronic insomnia for the first few days that he is gone, so life has consisted of looking after Gorgeous Girl, working and collapsing exhausted on the couch at the end of the day.
There has been a little knitting and a little spinning, but no progress worth sharing at this stage.
Gorgeous Man tells me that he has my new spinning wheel in his possession, along with some assorted roving/top. The only one he would tell me about was the 16 ounces (453 grams) of Blue Faced Leicester. He says I have to have some surprises…
Well, Gorgeous Girl is sleeping and I have the day off, so I’m going to try ad catch up on my very long list of blogs I haven’t visited for a while.
