Thank you all for your comments on my last post! I am feeling a lot better and less sad. Just the usual tired. Work is getting crazy again, and we're trying to fit in all the Austin-y things we can before we leave. It's hard to believe that we have two weeks left here. My… Continue reading HOW IS IT JULY?
Good morning friends. I woke up at 3:30 and was unable to fall back asleep, so today's post is brought to you by caffeine and fatigue. I hope you all had a great weekend. We had a good one.

Hello friends! Hope you are having a good week. This week was a little crazy since I had a deadline stacked on top of a client meeting that I needed to prep for.

Hello friends! I hope you had a good weekend. We were in our hometown on Friday for some family stuff, then came back to Austin Saturday. Yesterday I took some time to work on my tunic before finishing my chores and packing, and it felt good to take some time for myself. Still trying to… Continue reading Happy Monday?
Good morning friends! I'm not going to lie, my motivation is very low this morning. I just had the energy for a 10-minute yoga video, and ONLY because my old lady back starts hurting during the day if I don't do any kind of stretching or physical activity in the morning. I didn't stay at… Continue reading Finished Object – Openwork Shawl

I love my job and my projects, but often in consulting, everything just kind of falls on your desk at once and it's hard to balance everything sometimes. So anyway. Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments on my… Continue reading A Rambling Crafty Update
Happy Tuesday friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. It's amazing how much my mood has lifted since spring has arrived! We took several walks this weekend. I tried to get a picture of Apollo posing regally in the bluebonnets, but he did not want to participate. The best I could get was… Continue reading Craft Fails
Hi friends! I wanted to show the baby blanket that I recently finished! The sprig stitch is made using double crochet stitches (treble crochet in UK terms). It is a pretty stitch to use if you're wanting to experiment and try something different. I was inspired to use this stitch after watching a video tutorial… Continue reading Sprig Stitch Crochet Baby Blanket
Hi friends! Hope you had a nice weekend. Ours was great - it was warm and sunny. We spent a decent amount of time outside - walked on South Congress Saturday afternoon and at a park Sunday. I hadn't been back to South Congress in a long time, and it's changed a LOT. It bums… Continue reading A Quick Update So I’m Not Late
Good morning friends! I hope you are doing well! The weather has been really gross here lately - raining and in the 30-40s. The weather was lovely the weekend before - warm, hints of sun. I went for a hike with friends and didn't have to wear a jacket. I went for a run last… Continue reading Why Is It Still Winter?
