I had a nice, chill day yesterday. Hung out at home all day, did some reading, some vegetating, etc. ladygwyn joined gossamer_gull and I at The Crackhouse for some quality crafting time. It was definitely nice to have company and I actually felt a little motivated to both start new projects, and work on old ones. I started work on a new mask, which I am happy with, so far. But I need to make a trip to the craft store for the kind of ribbon I want to use around the edges. So that will have to wait until I get paid. On the plus side, by the end of this week, I should no longer be completely poor. Since I couldn't do anything else with the mask, I pulled out my cross stitch and worked on that until my wrists got sore. So that was a fun evening.

Things overheard at work:

"Oh. I mispronounced that? Sorry. The only thing I know about California is the Beach Boys."

"Leave me alone. I'm vibrating."
"She likes to get her freak on at work."
Tonight I will be seeing ladygwyn for some crafting madness, I mean, fun. I am hoping that having some company will inspire me to finish some of the projects which have been in a crafty limbo for the last couple of weeks. I have been completely uncrafty lately. Getting used to working and all, and all the stuff going on this week, I just have been too tired when I am home to do anything but vegetate.

"A day without chocolate is a day wasted."

Isn't is nice, how you can be sitting, minding your own business, completely immersed in your own depression, and from out of nowhere, comes the magical phrase, "Would you like a piece of chocolate?" And suddenly the world doesn't seem that bad. It's not just the chocolate, though I am certainly a fan of the stuff. It's the fact that someone else noticed, even if only for a brief time, that you existed, and thought to share something with you.

Why is it that Brynna has the whole bed to sprawl out on, and she just has to sleep in the square foot of space occupied by my newly cleaned and folded laundry?

And finally, here is my finished cross stitch project:

The Castle

Now I just need to figure out where to get it framed.

Well. I did it. I finished my cross stitch. After only 6 years or so. A new record. Yay! I will take a picture of it tomorrow when I have better light so that those of you who care can see the finished product. To celebrate the successful completion of this project, I began on another partially completed cross stitch which has been mocking me from the craft drawer for a number of years. Go me.
