 Things that made me smile today: Gwydion being so affectionate that he fell off the table. The person who answered the phone at 8:34 am by saying, "Good afternoon..I mean, uh...Hi." The co-worker conga line. Eating lunch in the sun. Driving with the windows down.

Can't sleep. Got to a point in my stitching last night where for some reason nothing was lining up the way it should. My counting is off somewhere, but though I counted and counted, I couldn't figure out where. I hate to throw it out after I've put so much work into it already. So I woke up, and started thinking about it, and now, here I am, counting again. Grrr.

Quote of the Day

"So, what have you been up to?" "Nothing. It's too cold to get in trouble."

Craft fair today. Yay! I am looking forward to seeing everyone (and their crafts). And then a little bit of partying planned for later on. Should be fun. At some point this weekend, I really need to do my laundry. I am very tempted to bring it to my dad's house when I go tomorrow for Easter. This will be the first time in years that I'm not working and can go eat dinner with the family. That should be interesting. I worked more on my celtic knot, so that is coming along pretty well. Speaking of my cross stitch, here are the two little projects I've finished:
  Cat in Window 

 I am thinking of altering this pattern to create additional images for the other seasons and then framing them together.

  Spot of Tea 

Hee hee. A dragon in a teacup.

Haven't written in a while, so I thought I'd make a quick entry. Have managed to be busy, mostly with work, and watching X-files and crafting with gossamer_gull. I completed 2 small projects now, and will probably take pictures of them soon to show everyone. I made a dragon cross stitch from a pattern ladygwyn lent to me, and it is really little and cute. Now I am attempting to do a Celtic knotwork pattern bookmark with green variegated floss...I've already screwed it up once, so we'll see how it comes out.

Quote of the Day

Quote of the day, some dieting advice: 
"I need to lose weight; my pants are too tight."
"You should buy some jogging pants." (points to guy passing by with very loose sweatpants on) "See, like that."
"You buy jogging pants, you grow into jogging pants. That's how I got in this mess."

I had Chinese food at work today. Strangely enough, I had the exact same message in my fortune cookie as the last time:

Never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.

I'm still not sure what that means, but I guess it must be true, since the cookies have told me twice now.
