I was going to pose this Saturday, but life.
Our JessaLu has been blogging for 12 years now and if you go over there and comment, you have a chance to win one of her fabulous bags. Mention me and I get a bonus entry. 50 comments and she adds another prize to the pool.
I started this blog about 6 months before her, but there are a bunch of us from the “Class of 2005” that are still around. Some of us post a bunch, and some of us aren’t that consistent (because FB and Twitter and Ravelry or life).
I’d like to make a better effort to blog again because I would like a slower pace. Everything on FB and Twitter is instantaneous. I’ve shut off my phone notifications for both and have been making an effort to step away a little. I noticed I was reposting a ton of memes instead of quality posts. I really enjoy those “memories” that pop up every day and I’d like to see my life instead of something meaningless.
I’m totally not doing a “new year, new me” post. I’ve just noticed things in my life that I would like to change.
Like getting this weaving going. This will be the first project on Mama Cass. (Someone reminded me that I need to name my lovelies)
Happy Monday y’all!
We went camping at Mustang Creek October 7 the through the 9th. It was the first time nighttime temperatures dipped into the 50’s this fall. And the only fall like temperatures we’ve had. It has been in the 80’s all day since then. I can’t wait for our next trip.
Yes, there is even a picture of some knitting in there. It was hopefully for my swap partner, but shit happens and I haven’t picked it up since.
Did I mention I put the tent up all by myself?
Happy Thursday y’all!
Three days of keeping up with Rosie made me just want to sit on the couch and weave. Ok, 3 days of Rosie and two nights of not sleeping well.
There was no What’s for Dinner Wednesday because I picked up rotisserie chicken from Boston Market. Texas didn’t want to go to the gym after work, so I had to come up with dinner on the fly.
F.N. Pope (Fish Nugget) died last night, so I cleaned the tank and picked up Eric IV aka Quad Shot today. Fishy was a “rescue” fish, so he came with his name. With Quad Shot went back to naming all of our fighting fish Eric. The first two commited suicide and Trey (Eric III) was just belly up one day.
What are you doing today?
Tuesday’s Rituxan meant a bunch of downtime and a lot of getting stuff done that had been sitting around awhile.
I finished Narcos, Lizzie Borden, a bunch of movies, a washcloth, a punch needle thing I started a LONG time ago, and Cookie’s basket. (Which ended up being Rosie’s basket).
Happy Sunday y’all!
I sent Texas out to spend time with one of his friends and spent a low key day crafting for Halloween. I was not as lazy as Mongo, but I’ll admit I was a little jealous of his zen.
I’m still a Yankee at heart, so despite the pool closing, this will never be the end of summer. With temperatures in the 80’s and 90’s it is still hot y’all!
So, Rosie made me take a basket weaving class.
2nd annual girls trip to Galveston.
The extra night was worth it. We took the duck boat tour, had amazing dinners, visited museums, walked the Strand (which is NOT on the beach).
I blame Rosie since she bought a sewing machine. The black and white one wraps a little, so I have some hand sewing to tack down the split. Because no one wants to see my undies while I’m trolling around town.
While not busy making pretty sun dresses, I’m planning a weekend camping trip. While knitting, swimming, biking, and cross stitching. I may also be going to a weaving class. That forced “vacation” has me doing ALL the things.
Life is too short y’all, go out and grab it by the balls!
