I might have way over committed myself in the past couple weeks. If I owe you something, I promise it’s coming quickly.
Between my new position at work and a a few days out to the PNW to see Crackerjack Sister graduate, I’m wiped out. My capacity for critical thinking is surely at an all time a low, and even that is devoted to work.
I did have a great time in Seattle. I put the pics up here, though most of them are probably only interesting to you if you’re related to me in some way. I tagged along on many shopping trips from which I benefited greatly (new Converse, fancy new shirt, excellent new dress). I got an awesome new laptop which is so light and fast that I feel like I can go everywhere with it, though I probably won’t, since one doesn’t need to be computing all the time.
Back in TN now, where it looks like we got a very brief reprieve from the oppressive heat. I’m already planning to stay inside all weekend and finish projects of my own and other people’s. At least the cicadas seem to have all passed while I was out of town! Plus I missed Bonnaroo and CMAfest crowds, both of which are cicada like in their noisy and mass.
Obviously no sewing going on lately. I did buy new handbags yesterday as I can’t resist a good deal. I love Fossil handbags. All of the ones I’ve owned except the one I’m currently using, which I got used, quite cheap and I just sort of hate it. So I got this one and this one (in a brownish grey not depicted there) for $101 total for both! I spent forever standing in the store trying to decide which and then made a last minute choice to get both. Hurrah! I should be set for a good long time now. Both came with an extra detachable strap and I can’t figure out what it’s for. The extra, removable strap is that same length as the strap on the bag already. If it was much longer or something, it would make sense to me, but at the same length, it just seems weird.
So, uh, yes, there’s all the news that’s fit to print. I better get to doing something, so I’ll have something good to show off, eh?
I took these pictures with my phone to remind myself of the color of the sky after 9pm, in June in the Pacific Northwest. One of the things I really miss is the summer light.
