I think I figured it out

Lately I just have not been inspired to work on knitting.  I go to a group every week, and the project I picked out wasn't thrilled me so I have continued with the two scarves I have on the needles.

I figured it out.  Knitting is not my thing, so it doesn't thrill me.

So I have a plan... I am going to tackle knitted socks, as they still entice me.  But, I am going to do other projects I want to do in crochet.  For instance, I want to change my blue pillows to brown, and I already bought yarn for it. So I am going to make covers with crochet.  :)

I am feeling excited again!

I'm going on a Holiday!

but I'm not sure when.. :)

Airmiles sent me an email recently telling me that I was coming close to meeting Gold Collector.  I didn't think much of it until I decided to look up what this actually gets me.  And it gets me 25% off the flight points required!  Next, I decided to see if that would give me enough points to get me to one of the two destinations that I want to get to.  And it does! 

I have done the math, and I can easily make the last points I need before the end of the year, so I am starting to think about my holiday.  But it is a long ways off, as I need to save some cash too and find a time that works for me to take 2 to 3 weeks off work, as it is a long haul destination.
