~ Ever have one of those weeks where the days drag on endlessly and you're cranky at everyone? It's not even my PMS week but boy am I over it on a lot of things this week. Cleaning up the office for the move, clingy guys, rent hike, car maintenance. Over it! Perhaps I have vacation fever...
~ The vacation is less than 3 weeks away and I am not ready! At least I have my passport handy but I need to try on my shorts and bathing suits. Over here, you don't wear either very often. In fact, it's been 7 years since I've even taken a beach vacation!
~ Which makes me feel like I should do a spray-on tan before I leave so I don't blind people with my white legs.
~ I've barely had time to stitch or cook which is making me even more cranky. What I have stitched is just more wing fill-in on Fairy Moon. It's slow going but getting there. I still have to count to allow the appropriate spaces for the beads. My goal is to finish the wing before I leave.
~ I feel like skipping yoga today so I can stitch, relax and catch up on the Tivo...but I'm feeling particularly guilty since I ate a cupcake and a cookie this morning. Oops...I guess if you fall off the wagon, fall off hard. Both were tasty!
~ I'm trying to figure out what small project I take along with me to help pass the time. I am itching to stitch Jane Pattison but it's probably a little too big and like I need another big WIP to be carting around. I'm having enough issues juggling the ones I have!
~ If anyone can suggest some light but wonderful reads (books) to take with me on my trip, I'd love to hear suggestions. I'll go to the library and see what I can find.
~ Oh, on Sunday, there was a big apartment building fire in the Mission District. A very close friend of the family lived in this building and has basically lost everything and is now pretty much homeless. The building is a total loss. Luckily, her upstairs neighbor helped her escape with literally just a case of important papers and the robe and slippers she was wearing. If you can spare some good thoughts for this 81 year old widow, it would be nice. I love her like a second mom and am just so sad that this happened to her. Thankfully, she is a well loved little old lady and there are lots of people coming out of the woodwork to help her but as you can imagine, the sadness and shock is great as now, all she has are memories of her life to hold...most of which...she lived in in that apartment.
~ Posts will be sporadic over the next few weeks...
Until next time...
