Whirlwind update!

Life has been crazy-making these last few months, so here's a list-like thing of what's new and improved...

  • We're 98% done with the Entertainment Room - all that's left is to tackle the Closet o'Doom.
  • The destashing has begun, if only slowly... Most of my scrapbooking supplies are on their way to new homes - I hated admitting I'd never get into that craft, but it feels so very good to not have that on my list of things at which to be mediocre.
  • QUILTING has become my obsession - I'm now one of those people that gets on waiting lists for upcoming fabric line releases. Wha?
  • Spinning still wins out over knitting ...
  • ... but I've been on a knitting WIP finishing streak -
    felted guitar strap, felted bag, hat for coworker, socks for me, and a shawl that's just about a week or so from being done (if I were to focus only on that for a week)
  • I'm having an argument with my Matchless. She's currently winning, but I'm about to take her back behind the toolshed and give her the what-for, little bitch.
  • I'm collecting inspirational photos for my spring dye day (TBA).
  • We got a new cat. Or, as we're calling her New Cat. She's a 'fraidy cat and has spent most of her time hiding in the basement...
  • Back on the MC with this gorgeous pre-Spring weather and fuck, do I love it or what?
  • Bertha the WunderGhia still has a brake problem. Boo.... Not that I've tried to fix it, so at least it's not an ongoing issue; it's simply the same, unrepaired issue.
  • Even though it is our goal to clean out the basement soon, I trash-picked a gorgeous set of French doors. I swear, they're not for me! I'm just holding them for someone!
  • Changing a flat tire on access road to the Platt Bridge is scary. Slow down, people, you don't have to fly to the airport!
  • ETA: Made arrangements to take my first solo trip by plane (I know, right?) only to have it canceled TWICE due to super-stoopid snow (really, PHL? 3" on grassy surfaces? Really?)
  • AND, to go with that last one, agreed to do AM babysittin' in exchange for a ride to the airport only to be met with a Stewie-sized diaper of doom. Iris, I thought we were FRIENDS!!!!!
I'm not going to make any promises, but I'm hopeful that I can get back into this blogging thing... I miss my online friends and I miss sharing fragments of my life.
