Hello friends! I hope you've had a lovely holiday season regardless of what you celebrate. I'm writing to you from South Texas. Everyone has been asking me how it feels to be back in Texas, and my standard response has been, "IT'S SO SUNNY. AND WARM." When we left Indiana, snow from the previous week… Continue reading Home Again
So, yesterday it snowed. I begrudgingly watched it outside my window, cursing nature for not sticking with my selfish schedule. I had my performance review Monday; how could I drive in the snow? I didn't think about it much before falling asleep, because I knew it would stress me out too much. I sent my… Continue reading Snow Wimp
Hello friends! I hope you are all doing well. I'm writing here on a Saturday night. I am, as usual, being overly ambitious about the amount of projects I can finish before the new year, so I've compiled all the holiday-related kits I haven't worked through yet to see how much I can get done… Continue reading It’s Cold and also: I’m Learning Magic Loop
Happy Thanksgiving friends! This month has flown away from me and I can hardly believe it. Work has been very busy and stressful. Lots of deliverables, lots of those ~hard-earned~ lessons about project management as I continue working through this steep learning curve. Can't I just skip the part where I make mistakes so I… Continue reading ‘Tis the Season
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
Hello friends! It's time for another, "I should be getting ready for work but decided to update my blog instead" post. Husband and I just came back from Indianapolis yesterday (thankfully smooth flights both ways and no travel issues that had plagued our last trip out there). The inspection went as well as it could… Continue reading Back from Indianapolis
We've got a finished cardi! With sleeves! The pattern was actually really easy to follow, and there is a great tutorial video to walk you through the steps (even though my brain took awhile to decipher the difference between front and back post crochet). Now I just need to wash and block it. The sleeves… Continue reading Ta Da!
Hi friends! This is a super quick post since things are pretty busy at the moment! Work is insane and I've had to pass on some of my reports to others. Working in consulting turns you into a hoarder; I don't LIKE giving up assigned reports, but my work load was just not sustainable. And… Continue reading Why Is It May?
Hello friends! I don't know about you all, but it's been a crazy week. 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
Hi friends! I should be getting ready for work since I picked up two new projects to manage and I have a ton of stuff to do today but BLOG POST TIME YAYYY! It's been awhile! Hope you all are doing well. I was checking out my soon-to-be new home in Indiana last week! It… Continue reading Travels to Indiana
