yarn, flowers, mondays, etc

It’s been a pretty damned decent day so far. Currently I am listening to Chris Thile and drinking grapefruit Perrier at work. I have some yellow roses to replace the pink ones from last week (which started looking pretty bad yesterday).

Went to Publix on my lunch break to get lunch and also do some miscellaneous grocery shopping. I really need to make a trip to Aldi to stock up on EVERYthing. Still have not been shopping there since before Matt died. I know it’s ridiculous for me to still be avoiding that place at this point. But, I don’t know, I just don’t want to deal with it. But Publix is SO much more expensive….

Anyway. I ordered a bunch of yarn online last week (found it for $3 less than I had been getting it from the local yarn shop…which I WILL continue to go to) and they’re supposed to deliver today!! It’s so much yarn and I’m excited! It’s going towards this medallion motif blanket-thing that I’ve been working on for a couple of months now. I’m realizing, though, that I need to start thinking about Christmas presents and stop thinking about making shit for myself. Blast. I keep starting projects and not wanting to give them away because they’re awesome. It’s a dilemma.

Anyone (besides Katie) want to come over to my house and do crafts with me? I haven’t been working on anything recently – except the crocheting that I keep at work. I have feather quilt stuff out, but need to cut more pieces which is for some reason holding me up.

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.

One thought on “yarn, flowers, mondays, etc”

  1. I’m sewing like mad on this quilt, but it’s not really something I could bring to your place. WAIT! It actually is. I used to sew on a sewing machine that was bolted to a table, which weighs like 100 lbs., but lately have been using a portable sewing machine. So, nevermind. Perhaps when either 1) I get a new car, or 2) M and I can both come up in his car, I can bring sewing things and sew with you.

    Man, I use a LOT of thread sewing these triangles together.
