Progress, Obession and Blah
What a title. I swear it can’t just be me that has trouble with these things, can it?
I’m making steady progress on the shawl. Dang that sleeping thing. At least I have the second ball on. Moving along swimmingly.
I have a new obsession. I was browsing in the book store – a 40% coupon will drive me in the place (only during work hours though when it’s not too crowded), when I spotted these lovely little Moleskine books. Well, obviously I’m late to the party, but I loved the blank one… no lines, no rules. Paper in a book with no rules. The small things amuse me. I showed DH when he got home and he’s said “you mean a sketch book.” Well kinda, but different.
This is my place for all of my crazy ideas – all of them – sweater designs, book ideas (of books that will never be written), little drawings, skein samples, every crazy idea in my head could get out and go in the books. Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t been living under a rock. I’ve heard of this before, but something about these little books made my creative side go zing. I swear I’m digging out my colored pencils and drawing pencils tonight.
Finally, the blah….it hasn’t been all tasty bits around here. This was my attempt at ratatouille. It came out more like a stew or stir-fry, so I added some rice, but it was bland – so bland. I’m going to have to find another recipe and give this one another go.
