The Fun Never Stops Around Here

 On Monday, I fell down two or three stairs at school. I'm very lucky that nothing is broken, but I am pretty banged up. Fun fact: Sprains often hurt more than breaks. I broke my right leg nine years ago to the day: April 19, 2013. Monday I ended up with high ankle sprain -- and that hurt way more!

More fun: Our old house is not selling quickly. We think it's because we didn't update the main bathroom. That was dumb on our part. We may need to take it off the market and do a quick update. We priced it knowing that the bathroom needed to be updated, so we're hoping that works out.

I have had time to knit and I finally finished the Adrift Shawl, which I had taken to calling the "forever shawl." It needs a good blocking, and I think it will be very long and cozy.

And I started a pair of Petty Harbor Socks with an unknown color of Knit Circus yarn. I need easy these days. 

I went back to work today and it was really great to be with people. We only have 9th- and 12th-graders in the building so it was calm. The kids were quiet and they all wore masks. I got to meet some of my freshman finally. I think the weeks will go faster now that we are back in school.

  1. I'm so sorry about your accident!!! I hope you feel better soon. And think about burying a St. Joseph statue in the front yard to get the house sold!

  2. So sorry to hear about your ankle. Yes, sprains DO hurt worse than a clean break.

  4. Oh, dear. I do know that sprains hurt worse than breaks as I did an ankle myself years ago and it took forever to heal and hurt like the dickens the whole time.
    I have the same worry about selling this house one day. We redid one bathroom but we have two more that are horribly outdated and The Mister won't budge at remodeling one more thing.
    Congrats on the shawl finish! It's so cold here again and I packed up all my woollies already. I need to go dig out a shawl right now.

  8. Lovely knits!
    Even with no updates, houses are just flying off the market here. We have a bid in on one today and I'm really hoping we hear good news by the end of the week!

  10. Oh no! Hope your ankle heals quickly, but at least it gives you an excuse to knit! The adrift shawl looks lovely, especially if your weather is anything like ours!

    What a pretty shawl, and I love the sock yarn colors. Best of luck with selling the house.
