What a cheerful way to start the day.
The weather continues to be spring-like. Dare I say it....? I think we have seen the last of the snow. I might even tempt fate by making an appointment to get my snow tires removed next week.
Not much happening here. I did get a nice surprise when I got home from work yesterday. Remember I mentioned a few weeks ago that my rain gutter was hanging down precariously? Every time the wind blew I feared it would snap off and become a flying projectile. But now it is fixed. Yippee.
I casually mentioned it (begged, really) to a neighbor the other day. Apparently he took pity on me and fixed it before I got home from work. Now that I know he is handy and easily guilted, I'm going to start a small list :)
I added a few more items to my Etsy shop today. I packaged my sheep rug for shipping the other day. I took extra care to pretty it up with tissue paper, stickers and tied it all up in a springy ribbon. I was so pleased with myself. I took it to the post office and watched the lady fold it up and jam it down, hearing tissue paper ripping all the way. Uggh, so much for trying to pretty up the packaging.
The goal for the weekend it to finish hooking the current project. I am not happy with it and just want to be done with it. I have a few ideas I want to start after this one. Wish me luck. Motivation for a project you don't like is always low.
