Something exciting happened tonight! I refuse to share more than that, but I am one happy, tiny, blonde right now. So happy! I promise that I will share as soon as I can. I’m excited to tell you all about the awesome that is about to occur!
I created a bucket list today. My friend Kristie has been talking about hers on her blog, and I decided I needed one as well. At first I was a little concerned that it would make me feel pressured, but I think it has actually been a bit more inspiring. I made sure to include little(ish) things that I could go out and do tomorrow along with the big things that could take a lifetime to achieve. I’m thinking I’m already excited about the prospect of starting to mark things off the list.
Okay, let me tell you about the thing I am knitting. I am knitting a not so soul-sucking blanket. I was a bit worried that when I decided to create something soft, fluffy, and awesome for my soon to be born niece, it would slowly eat at me. However, so far I’ve actually been enjoying it! The project is moving along quite well and I’m so happy with it. I created a pattern that I knew I could knit with ease without getting bored. It’s a simple seed stitch border with a nice checkerboard in the middle. I’m really pleased with the way it looks so far! When it gets a little bigger, I’ll post a few pictures.
Last weekend I went to Barnes and Noble and had a lot of fun. I spent very little money and walked out with maximum booky goodness. Since I picked up so many books, I’ll blog about them as I make my way through them. I finished my second Scott Pilgrim book and have a third sitting in a pile ready to be devoured. I’ve started about 4 different books that I am making my way through at the same time right now. I’m going to finish at least two of them before I let myself start another. Boneshaker is first on the list followed by Decoded and then a Buffy comic. After that I’m starting Neverwhere and finishing whatever else has a bookmark in it. I won’t let myself near a bookstore again until I finish the pile of lovely new volumes sitting in a neat pile and waiting to have their bindings cracked.
It has been a great week or so! I’ve been taking good care of my brain and keeping myself entertained with yarn and books and writing. I’m even planning some small changes to make my blog a bit more interesting (hopefully). I really am antsy to talk about the most amazing thing ever, but it will have to wait for a little bit. I promise it will be worth the build up.
