I’m Still Here, Promise

I hope everyone is doing well and that you’re all healthy and safe. I am still here but I’ve been putting all of my energy into teaching and my graduate courses. Coupled with the fact that I’m doing a lot of research on COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matters protests, well…I am pretty depleted at the end of the day. I am still knitting and working on some fun things and I promise to post when I have more time. I just wanted to check in and say I’m still here and Jellybean is right next to me.

  11. good to see you and JB. And nice cardi! You must be spending a lot of time on Zoom (or similar). It’s so draining.

  12. It’s so good to see you and Jellybean! You’re great to take time to check in and let us know how you’re doing. This picture of you two touches my heart. wonderful 🙂 I see another reader has commiserated about the amount of time you must be spending on Zoom and I do as well. It’s truly exhausting!! I different way of paying attention, I think. Here’s to all the great knitting ahead (someday!).

  13. I can only imagine how busy you must be with online teaching and learning! I’m sitting by my granddaughter while she attends kindergarten and am in awe of the preparation that goes into the whole endeavor. Glad to see you and Jellybean, and your stash! Take care.

  14. Great to see you and Jelly Bean. We understand when your life gets busy. When in doubt, knit!

  16. Hang in there! Things have to calm down eventually! Sending good thoughts your way.

  17. I’m glad you checked in! You look beautiful & Jellybean smiling is like a hug. Good luck juggling your very busy schedule. PS I’d love to see what your research is finding. ❤

  18. Glad you are well. We’ll be happy to see you whenever you have a moment to pop in!! Stay safe!

  19. I am sending you a giant virtual hug right now. A yarn hug, in celebration of Shetland Wool Week, because you clearly don’t have enough stash.

  20. I hope that, given the twin pressures of both grad school and teaching, you’re finding time to knit. Both seem twice as hard these days as when I was a grad student back when dinosaurs roamed the earth. But one day they’ll call you doc.

  21. Glad to know and to see that you are still there along with Jelly Bean. You have quite the load on your plate. A photo of you is always wonderful. And then sometime in the future, you can tell us about the sweater you are wearing. Hugs!

  23. We will be here ready to give you a great big virtual hug when things get less crazy.

  24. So glad to hear from you. Start of school, both teaching and taking — gack! Thanks for the check in.

  25. Lovely to see you! Your sweater is beautiful!

  26. When I see an email from you in my inbox I start smiling before I’ve even opened it. Plus….. Jellybean ❤️. Thanks for brightening my day.

  27. Hang in there..Like you teaching, coping with hybrid classes and keeping sane by knitting. Take care!

  28. You’re both looking good. there are only so many hours in a day. Work needs to lead at times. have fun and we await your next epistle

  29. Yay! Be well and take care. Greetings from Anne Arundel County.
