Now, don’t get me wrong. I like other days of the week, but Friday is a personal favorite. A day full of anticipation. Wonderful.
I have had a rough week. It’s all about me and I’m having trouble acclimating to my new job. Since it is all about me, I don’t think they are very nice to me. When I get away from the office, I realize that I might be a tad immature and bored. I hate being bored at work and I have been. Because of the boredom I over-analyze and pick at things (mentally) until they bleed. Not pretty. When I finally got away from the office last night I realized I was doing just that. Sometimes I grow very weary of myself.
The boredom will not continue. We are picking up jobs and that means busy every day all day. I’m grateful. I was thinking that if things didn’t pick up I would need my pin that says “I knit so I do not kill people”.
Here to distract you are my newest purchases in no particular order. Here from the wonderful Joan is her Cupcake Fibers roving for sock yarn that I purchased for spinning………….something.
Isn’t that a great put up? I’m looking forward to spinning this. And, for something completely different, yet similar, here is Rachel’s Dyeabolical Yarns BFL/tussah silk roving. In case you think this is pretty too, you’re right. Joy bought the same roving and we hadn’t even talked!!!
That will be spun into singles (I’ma thinkin’) for a shawlette or such. Aren’t those pretty rovings? I have been upping my physical activity and therefore, I am shorter on spinning/knitting time. Those weeks of “inside because the weather sucks eggs” have taken their toll and I’m weak and whiny and need to move. Grover and I have increased our walking time and will continue to do so from now on. The ice/snow/sh*t made it clear to me that walking is no longer a chore, but a habit and I love it.
My soundtrack for the day? How about Tina with “Higher”
Have a great weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
