Perspective

 

Samantha sent this to me today - totally made my day. I want a marshmallow cat!

Thank to all of you for your concern. Good ol' Stella is back on the road, and it helps to put these things into perspective. It definitely could have been a lot worse - I didn't end up with a blown tire and stranded on the side of a dangerous highway - or worse - a blown tire and a collision with another car.

It was an expensive weekend, but I can always make more money... right?!? I guess I better dye some more yarn....

And my weekend wasn't all bad. On Friday night I had an awesome dinner with an former coworker who I don't get to see enough. After which we went shopping I got a killer deal on some shoes!

All three pairs cost me just over $30! Yay for clearance prices and small feet!

And things have slowed down a little more at work...

... leaving me a with a little more energy to work on my knitting. This is the second of the ransom socks.... so close!

After these are off the needles, I have to focus on Nora's ladybug jacket (her birthday is next week) and the BC socks... just three weeks left in the KAL and I'm not even through the first one! Yikes!

You're almost done those ransom socks, and three weeks? that's plenty of time to finish Business Casuals! You can do it!

Yes, please do dye some more yarn! I'm working through my sock yarn stash at a pretty good pace :)

Seriously? Thirty dollars???? Those are awesome shoes.

I just paid $105 for a pair of Birkies ON SALE. Now I love my Birkies, but your shoes are ADORABLE!

That's a fun and cute photo of cats. I can't believe you found three pair of shoes for that prize!

The marshmallow kitties still crack me up.

Socks are looking GREAT.

I'm glad the accident was only minor too. Wouldn't want a squished you.

A very funny cat photo! Aren't those "marshmallows" sooooo cute?!

What a great deal you got on shoes. I mean a GREAT deal.

The pink socks look so pretty, lacy, feminine. Lovely!!

Good luck on finishing your projects... I'm amazed at how fast you knit, so perhaps you'll hit your deadlines!! I would be in panic mode, I think. Ha.
