You Spoony Bard!

So far, I'm not recovering well from the holiday.

I mean, I didn't really party or do anything too crazy, I just went home, came back, worked for a day and a half, and then had 5 days off. During which I chilllllled, looked for furniture, played FFIV on the DS (which is amazing) and watched some movies.

So you see, coming back to work after this down time seems ridiculous to me. This morning I sat down at my desk at stared at my very long list of things to do, and exhaled heavily. Work? Let us all give a collective "booooo".

In truth it's good to be back, because I go a little crazy without goals/tasks, and when I'm working I'm not over analyzing and thinking about things that piss me off. I prefer to be positive, therfore I stay busy.

My mom sent me some interesting pictures of her and her friend Michael modeling the Branching Out scarf that I made her for Xmas.

Kind of crappy since I made her take them with her Blackberry while she was in Gatlinburg, but oh well. The color of the scarf is of course, not bluish-white, but more like a pale lavendar-gray, as shown in previous posts. I of course added a simple fringe, which I think makes the overall effect very prim and clean. Then , I wet-blocked it, which added about a foot and a half to the length. She loved it.

Although you would not be able to tell by my packing progress, I'm so excited to move. I bought a sweet new cookware set on Amazon! It's a 10 pc. Farberware set, and it's so nice in its non-stick goodness. I know....so mundane, right? But seriously, it's amazing to read so many reviews on home goods and finally (FINALLY) land on something that won't explode on contact. Next stop: vaccuum. Listen to me. I'm boring myself. I think I'll go to the store today and pick up a life while I'm there....Ha.

That aside, I'm slowly progressing on the August is for Melody scarf. Then, I can finish the nieces' gifts and FedEx them down to KY. I'll hopefully have some pictures up by this weekend.

How was your holiday, doods?

  1. It is fun setting up for a new abode, isn't it? There's just something so liberating about starting over--the cupboards and closets are organized, and all the new things you've bought make you feel as if the future in your new place can't be anything but wonderful.

    My holiday was people, people people. Today is the first day of quiet I've had in weeks. THIS I am enjoying!
