Listening: "Ballad of Ladyman" by Sleater Kinney (best lyric - "I could be demure like girls who are soft for boys who are fearful of getting an earful... But I gotta rock!")

Reading (perhaps quality): finished Playing the Bones, paused on The Secret Book of Grazia dei Rossi.

Reading (definitely pulp): an Anne Perry mystery novel.

Drinking: Cold coffee.

Was going to say that I'm in a grumpy mood but so many of these things start that way. And besides, I'm really not. I am, however, trying to avoid getting too tainted by the more drama-queen-ish of the people around me. But then I think about the times I let my own general dissatisfaction leak everywhere and remind myself to be a bit more generous with other people.

Actually the whole thing has been a good chance to practice saying to myself that I'm doing the best I can, that other people's comments are just that and don't need to be taken personally. Ann Lamott wrote that sometimes the universe goes a little crazy to distract you so that something beautiful has space to be born - I figure something big and absolutely amazing is on the way to account for all the static I've been hearing lately)

But all's well. Things are coming along on my purple sweater - put a knitting update up and will include images of the sweater as I progress. The grecian plait lace pattern is a bit of a pain to work but it's routine (and quite lovely). Have a million half finished knitting projects (they're a lot of fun to start but lots of work to do) but think I may actually complete this one. I'm forcing myself to knit at least a couple of rows a day which has made the project move and reminds me that it's there.

SS the SS and I went to IKEA last night. She was looking for some furniture and I was looking for a bookcase. Am still looking for a bookcase (the one I have from D is black and they don't have any black ones there) but did snag some runner rugs for the space between the living room and dining room and much needed kitchen gear. The store was empty and SS the SS and I had a nice time looking through the showroom rooms (why is there 730 square foot apartment so much bigger than mine?) and catching up.

a m. just a m

Doing (life and related tasks): The workday has been busy with project meetings all for things with May release dates (so no relief anytime soon).

Doing (crafty stuff): Almost done with the Grecian Plait portion of the back of my sweater.

Wanting: To figure out how to turn the radiator off in my living room because it's really warm and neither direction seems to make it stop.

Anticipating: Doint the bustle thing for D dress (Demmert D and I are meeting tonight to learn how), some fun plans this weekend.

last one everything else what I'm working on on to the dailies all (well some) about me back to the index page next one
