What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 228

The Spanish, edition. Unless of course, you're Kate.  In which case, joining in from Spain is entirely normal and I'm simply bragging.  No, wait, I AM bragging. Having a late holiday is a weather gamble and this has just been a good 'un.  So, because of the vagaries of Ole (our Spanish ISP), my ipad and Blogger refusing to shake hands, and the horrible problem I have understanding Blogsy my Workdesk today is picture-less.  Don't be mistaken -  lack of photo evidence doesn't prove me a slacker. Oh no.  I've done some bead embroidering (about an hours worth) and I've started work on some more crochet squares for another blanket.  I think I've made about 9 so far.  They're four inch squares, so I've worked less hard than I care to think about.  Thing is, as you know, being on holiday makes you want to sit and do nothing.  So I do.  and I'm with my mum and one of my lovely sisters, so am not without company for a chat.  All this does not mean however, that we aren't interested in your work desks...as usual, play along by linking your WOYWW post here please!  See you for reals, very soon!

I was just doing my WOYWW post to schedule for midnight and needed your address to link up to my page - thought I was seeing things - but NO there is the post a day early. Hope it is OK to link up early - just couldn't resist the number one spot - BJ#1

Sunshine Girl said...

Oooh how lovely - have a fabulous time!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I was just writing my blog when yours popped up so I thought I'd sneak in early!!
I'm really glad you're having a good hols with your family but I miss you and I look forward to seeing you when you're back home :-)
Hugs, LLJ 3 xx

MaggieC said...

I joined in too, couldn't resist. Enjoy the rest of your holiday, and don't worry about not keeping up the crafting timetable. I am off to get some more wool tomorrow, after the gym so I can crochet in the evening. xx Maggie #4

Annie said...

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm like BJ. I saw the post was up when I came for your URL. Even though I'm a bit late, I'm still early (GRIN). Glad you did this, because I want to got to dinner instead of lunch with Sally today.

BTW, I used my imagination and envisioned your latest crochet project and your uncommonly tidy desk, where everything has been put away, except the ATG, the button jar, and the glass mat. Hey, I told you I imagined it and I have a very active imagination.

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

Ooh you've gone all funky! Sat down to write my post and schedule for the morning, flicked to FB and you'd gone live already. Enjoy the rest of your holiday :o)

Helen said...

but it's only Tuesday... you caught me out. will link after dinner!! Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

Sandy Leigh said...

Well this is fun! I'm enjoying this early bird special linkup! I think we are all enjoying your holiday too Julia. And just because there's no picture doesn't mean I'm not excited about some crochet squares and bead embroidery. That is right up my alley! I'm sure your desk is missing you though--it's having a little vacay too. Hugs! Sandy Leigh #9

Krisha said...

Surprised is right. I thought I'd have to be "out" an other week, but this is just perfect. I have tons of stuff to get done for our next RV trip this weekend, and as soon as DH gets back to the house we will be off and running!!
Happy WOYWW

So glad Spain has lived up to its reputation for October sunshine. It has been lovely in our bit all week. Well done for doing anything crochet or bead related. I've hardly touched mine since I got back from UK.
For once my post isn't ready for the early link up, but there's still time! Enjoy the rest of your break. Kate x

Glad the weather is being kind to you - enjoy your break. You can always show us what you've been making when you get home.

Hello Julia,

Wow - you are very early! Too bad I haven't taken photos of my desk yet and I'm STUCK at WORK.... shhhhh

I'll be linking up just as soon as I get home.

By the way, I'm sure you are a very trustworthy person so I'll take your word that you have done some crafting! I imagine the beading and crocheting is just as relaxing as having a wonderful holiday!

Happy WOYWW
Peace, Kay (no # yet)

I am going on the road at 3 AM, so this worked out great. I will even be able to visit a few people before I go. Have a great time.

Ria Gall said...

Hi Julia
I hope that you are all sitting with your feet up enjoying the sun and the wine and doing nothing but chatting and catching up.
It is great that you have still managed to get this bit set up for us so we could all still join in.
Enjoy your holiday

Love your new blog look, Ms. J!! It sounds like you are having a wonderful vacay and not overdoing it - which is the whole idea of a vacay, so well done you!! Hugs, Darnell #57

Monica said...

If you get 2 comments it means Google hiccuped and was probably having a cocktail down the bar from you.

April Story said...

I don't believe a word of it! I want pictures! LOL I hope you're having a wonderful holiday. I'm expecting evidence of your supposed crafting while on vacation when you get back. ;-) April #61

Hammers said...

Enjoy your holiday, hope you are nice and warm :) We are experiencing a faux summer here in NYC. I need to make a crochet blanket...

Christine said...

Don't bother coming home ... it's cold and wet! Hang on out there for as long as you can. Enjoy!
That's my advice on this cold, dark, EARLY morning.
Didn't know I could be so cheerful so early in the morning ........

Neesie said...

I'm not jealous at all Julia that you're there and I'm here even with only 2 degrees and FOG!
You just enjoy yourself to the max for me :(
If there's a way of sending a little heat by postcard then that would be appreciated (shiver...sniff...sob) ;D

Lynn Holland said...

Stretch out your limbs in the sun it's cold in the uk

Patsy Paterno said...

Sometimes Blogsy is very temperamental and messes up my post too! But recently it's been cooperative! Be sure to post pictures of Spain! Peggy is planning to do the Camino pilgrimage next year. Still deciding what kind of weather she prefers. But she is already practicing around her house in her shoes and backpack, can you imagine???? Have fun! patsy

RosC said...

Hi Julia,

I'm back and you're away. Oh well, that's not a worry since there are more Wednesdays in the year! ;-)

Hope you're having a great holiday with activity, chat and Spanish ambiance.

Take care,

Hettie said...

Sounds like you are having a great time Julia. And you deserve it! I wonder if your ears were burning on Sunday evening. Kim and I were raising a glass of bubbly for you to thank you for getting us together!

Marit said...

To sit in the sun, crochet a bit, chat with mum and sis and soak up the surroundings... now THAT is what I call holiday! Enjoy, enjoy Julia!

Victoria said...

Have a fabulous time in the Spanish sun!

Alison Wade said...

Happy WOYWW and hope that the Spanish sunshine is still shining. We could really do with a bit of Spanish therapy - we normally go away in January, which is cooler, but still usually sunny and a fab break away from the British winter. Ali x #97, I think!

Karen said...

Sounds like you're having a great time which is wonderful!!!! Have a drink for me (you can have the alcohol I can't!). Enjoy life! Karen x

Zeffy said...

Glad you are having a good holiday - we are now back to the cold and rain but had a great time away! Chrisx

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Of course we'll expect photographic evidence that you truly are on vacation. I under the need to do nothing whilst on vay-kay. It seems appropriate. Have fun!

Have a great holiday xx Jan (116)

Awesome...glad to hear you are getting a holiday! I leave Oct 31 and fly to Barcelona and then we catch a transAtlantic cruise back to New Orleans on Nov 1. Really looking forward to the 'being out of touch' time! Finally remembered what Wednesday was all about and posted for the first time in a long time. Vickie @118

Lindart said...

It's been a long time! Hopefully I will be able to keep this up! I love looking at everyone else's blog too! My desk was so neat and tidy on Monday. . . ♥

Have a great vacation! Thanks to you, so am I...visiting Hettie. Thanks again for WOYWW !

Kezzy said...

I am so happy the weather is being good, it's horrible here windy and cold and getting dark really early. It's amazing how quick it comes after summer, one minute your enjoying the dark at 10pm, then the next minute your thinking it must be really late as it's pitch black but really it's only 7pm lol. Can't wait to see your bead embroidery and your crochet squares and of course all those gorgeous holiday pictures :-)
Happy Woyww Kezzy xxx
