Happy Valentine’s Day!
I used to HATE Valentine’s Day, and I can definitely understand why it’s an irritating holiday to many people. I was single a good chunk of my college years and 20s, and I protested the holiday by wearing black. I’m far from those days now, but part of me wants to wear black today as a tribute to my angsty teenage self. (Actually – I can think of a black dress that would look work well for both work and for dinner tonight – one of those elusive “day to night wear” combos that fashion magazines of my youth always talked about. DONE).
Husband and I are keeping it low key. We are going out to dinner and getting each other cards, which I MAY OR MAY NOT STILL NEED TO GET because I am the WORST.
This morning I woke up and did not feel like doing anything. I’ve been working out nearly every day these past two weeks, and my body was tired. I haven’t been waking up as early for the past several days, and I took it as a sign that my body needed some much needed rest. Work started this week as completely chaotic, but deadlines shifted, and I now have a much more manageable schedule. For the first time in several weeks, I can breathe a little.
So I stayed in bed, catching up on stories (like the Delta plane experiencing severe turbulence, which I’m going to pretend I DIDN’T READ since I’m flying this year, and Ryan Adams is apparently a terrible human being – disappointing but not altogether surprising.) After waking up, I made some coffee, and spent 20 minutes working on my Hygge shawl.
I’ve probably pulled out this separator ten times, but I think I’m finally happy with the first row (that latest row is probably going to be torn out – I think I miscounted again. ERGH). At least I’m semi-finished with the separator, so I can move on to the embroidery, which I’m sure will be a PIECE OF CAKE.
I need to get ready for work, but whether you are celebrating Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day, or this-holiday-sucks-it’s-Single’s-Awareness-Day-and-STOP-TALKING-ABOUT-IT, I hope you have a wonderful day.
