Because I love a good list....
It's Monday, and I am back from a lovely trip to Montana. I hosted a retreat group with some lovely ladies, whom I would now consider friends. We were a small group, just 5 total, and the size of the group was ideal for retreat. We ate great, simple food, we enjoyed each others company and we really got to know each other. It was a great respite in what has been a tough summer. I'm not complaining, life is good, but this summer has been a tough one with a multitude of changes, and it's share of stress. I am glad to be moving on from summer and gearing up for a very busy and productive Autumn, and some lovely upcoming projects and experiences.
I thought we would start this monday with a list (because you know just how much I love a good list).....so lets get started...
Feeling : a bit sad that I missed a friend's wedding this weekend (congrats Brooke and Luke, love you guys), and excited for a week at home to recover from 13 days on the road.
Watching : knitting podcasts, I have become a bit obsessed (and a bit stalkerish)....
Craving : French Onion Dip -- we had some at retreat, I had forgotten how good it is, fattening, but yummy.
Lunching : brown bagging it -- this week PB&J
Doing : lots of catching up on things
Obsessing : over the new Malam Batiks that arrived at work.....Jinny Beyer you are a genius!!!
Loving : my Viking. I forget how much I love her until I use something else.
Reading : Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon
Wanting : yarn -- specifically a skein of Sun and Sea on the Assockilate Base from The Cyborgs CraftRoom - one of my favorite online yarn shops
Pinning - Organization and Back to School Hacks
Dreaming - of painting my bedroom the palest teal in the yarn above....
Writing -- patterns for market
Sewing - backing for Shooting Stars -- I need to get it to the quilter this week
Knitting - My Razzle, still have quite a ways to go, the short rows are no longer short. I really wanted to be done with this one, so it better behave or it might get frogged.
Listening - the new Gloriana CD -- I can't remember the title at the moment, but it is on repeat in the car
Wearing - Harry Potter tshirts - It's back to school time!!!
Needing - to clean and organize, see Pinning above
Planning - October trips, and 2016 Q1 speaking engagements
Trying - to get back on routine
SO, that's about all the -ing for me this week...what about you??? are you -ing anything exciting???
