Since I have been remiss (insert understatement of the year here) in writing my blog, I thought I'd make a better effort. It's not that I don't have a lot to say, it's more that I am lacking confidence to think anyone is going to find my rather ordinary, yet extremely fulfilling life, very interesting.
Since so few people read this, then I can just write it for me!
And so I shall.
Today was a really good day, and it isn't even over yet. Work forgot to put my Rubbermaid of papers necessary for me to complete my work into the mail-room where I pick it up, so I had an unexpected (and UNPAID!) day off. I spent the better part of an hour steaming about it - getting nothing but...
So, I decided to move on to take full advantage of the opportunity to get a jump on Christmas gift making, grocery shopping, yarn shopping (I know!) and preparing a great dinner for Dave and me which included some really good beer and a bottle of wine. I even took the dogs for a nice autumn walk.
Keeping the heat off as long as possible has me in a big woolly mood and I've got fingerless gloves/mitts on the brain. Both methods of cutting the sleeves off of felted sweaters as I showed here and knitting them from some soft yummy wool like these.
You can find lots of free patterns here.
Today's Best Thing Ev-va: Going to my local yarn shop and learning I had $110 store credit to spend! Took me all of 15 minutes to do so...
Today's Tasty Treat: Trader Joe's grilled eggplant and zucchini. Frozen and ready to to make into just about anything! A little sauce, a little Parmesan and some pasta. Yum and Done!
and Today's "SQUIRREL!!!!!" Moment: Finding a big ol' box of fabric I'd forgotten about to use for Christmas projects. Spent almost an hour playing with it and pairing it up with things to make.
