We closed at noon on Friday, and while I might question the wisdom of that decision, I took the time off and ran with it. Got a lot of mundane things accomplished--laundry, grocery shopping, banking. And a decent meal was prepared. Now THERE is an accomplishment.
Will is here and he and I sat up late, discussing techno issues. He's doing a lot of the website for his employer and it's interesting to hear about his web issues. He's also assisting me with my iPod, and that's an ongoing educational project. Those little devices certainly do a lot.
My latest iPod passion is podcasts, although I have to laugh at the masochism of it all--listening to "What's fresh at the farmer's market today?" from a California Public Broadcasting station is guaranteed to produce extreme frustration and existential angst in Wisconsin residents like me who are only just beginning to see a green blade of grass or two in our neck of the woods.
There was time for sewing yesterday, and knitting too. There aren't good ways to photograph quilt progress too well. I'm assembling blocks, and it's moving along. I should get some photos posted of the Kimono Shawl, which is coming along slowly and steadily. I'm on the ninth repeat of twenty-five. Looking good.
Today the big news is of a furniture variety. My new (to me) hutch is arriving this afternoon. It's a Victorian antique with Eastlake detailing. I bought it from my college friend Jane, who in turn bought it in upper Michigan, so it has a nice ancestral tie-in with my DH. I have the perfect spot for it, where it no longer fit in with Jane's scheme. Can't wait to see it!
The top has glass-fronted doors, and this means VISIBLE STORAGE and DISPLAY! The dilemma is what exactly to store and display. No lack of possibilities around here... I have two complete sets of dishes packed and I can unpack one set. What to do?These?
