I can’t believe the year is flying by so quickly.  We’re already moving out of the nineteenth week of 2013!  In the words of Frank Barone — “geezahlou”  😀

This week was another interesting one, but I’m seeing the light and I can’t wait to move through this tunnel!  Tomorrow’s “Spa Day” (yes, I give myself one of these every month), so I’m going to get to this week’s blessings, lessons, reasons for gratitude and gifts since I wouldn’t have a lot of time to be online tomorrow.

  • Being able to rest well was amazing for me this week.  I didn’t do any crafting at all.  My sweater is at the same place it was this time last week but I’m hoping to add some more to it this weekend.
  • Happy days are here again.  I just had a skein winding jamboree in preparation of casting on the rest of the W.I.Ps (works in progress for you non-knitters/crocheters  😛 )  I want to work on for the next two months.  I was grateful that I’m growing in the skills that I’ve learned and it was something to wind yarn that I dyed.  Never expected that I would be here.   Experiencing this was a reminder that we really shouldn’t put limits on what we can achieve.

  • A summer dress from Target for the ridiculously low price of $6.26!  I was not going to leave that.
  • Being able to treat a co-worker to lunch.
  • Being able to stop myself from impulse yarn shopping after a crazy morning at work yesterday.

I hope you all are having a great start to your weekend and cheers for a great upcoming week.

      I had a blast. Now I’m considering weekly mani/pedis! 😀

      Yes indeed … I still haven’t found a project for my lilac yarn but there’s a hat that’s calling the coral yarn’s name. I’m just waiting on some needles to get to me … should be getting them this week then I’ll be ready to go! 😀

    Winding your own hand dyed yarn? Thats pretty amazing. Makes me think about dabbling one day. Enjoy your spa day! You certainly deserve it. -Nizzy

      You should … but I’m warning you now, it’s really addictive. The hand-painted yarn in the picture is one I bought; I think that’s going to be my next dyeing challenge; doing some hand-painting.

      Thanks for the Spa Day love. I can’t wait! 😀
