I’m home and pet sitting this week in town.
Hubby and I have had to juggle one car but it’s been a nice break to be in new surrounds. The cat is a Bombay. Very interesting: they are pitch black, compact and talk a LOT. Very dog-like, this cat. And fond of waking me at night.
I’ve never worked ft since we were married: always pt and then, since moving to the Great North, working for myself. This flexibility has meant we can vacation together. Hubby gets almost a month vacation! That is why I’ve added home sitting to my repertoire.
Walking this dog in this older area of town is fun. I see the wealth of historic houses, and read their interesting plaques, as we meander.
Central to town is this cathedral. What you cannot quite see? It is encrusted in ice. Spring is still dueling it out with Winter.
Town has 3 rug hooking groups: the big overly organized one, the casual night group, and the cathedral support group. The support hooks copies of stained glass windows that are in the above cathedral and sell them. I belong to the casual night group but have belonged to the others in the past.
All this to say that the Big Group is trying to organize a May hook-in and they’re having help issues. The covid years claimed two of our best organizers and the newbies may be intimidated by the former grandiose hook-ins.
Righty so! I think we’ve gotten waayyy too complicated.
Former hook-ins are free to the attendees and included a continental breakfast, beautiful luncheon and dessert, multiple gift basket drawings, gifts to everyone for coming, and so on and so on.
If your groups do hook-ins how are they run? Too much going on? Too little? Any ideas?
I say bring a bag lunch and we provide dessert and tea.
