Quick Break

I’m taking a quick break from typing up meeting minutes after yesterday’s bog presentation.

Just need to clear my head and be able to look at it with fresh eyes.

The presentation didn’t go too badly and the client seems happy with our proposal and now the really hard work will start.

I’m looking forward to it, but I’m also dreading it a bit – work is going to be hectic for the next year or so.

I have my crochet lying next to me – I usually do a couple of rows during lunch – and all I want to do at the moment is to pic it up and work on it some more. Vinni’s yarns are really really gorgeous.

That reminds me, I still want to do that post about all my projects.

Anyhow – back to work I go.

Catch-up

I’m hoping life will be a little calmer this week.

There is meant to be a presentation on either Tuesday or Thursday and I might or might not be going. I bought nice formal clothes just in case I am going. I don’t think I’m too bothered either way.

We had a fairly good weekend. Hubby got his new Retina Display macbook pro – he is so happy, it’s awesome.

Saturday was shopping and some cleaning and then just relaxing – I started filing all my Art – of  – Crochet magazines. I don’t have enough binders, they were out of stock for the longest time, and then never sent me the catch-up ones. I’m pretty sure I was charged for it though. I should go look.

That off course means that I saw a lot of projects that I want to do, so I came up with an interesting idea.

I made a list of all the projects I want to make, divided up into the amount of yarn they use, 0-5 balls, 6-10 balls etc. And I will write that on different colour cards and as I have money and want to start new projects, I just pick a card that suits my budget.

I did find a new project – a top – that I started on, you’re meant to use mercerized cotton, but I have a bamboo yarn that I think is about the same thickness, so we’ll see what happens – I did a semblance of a tension square, so now I’m hoping for the best.

I want to do a post with all my current projects, I think I have 3 or  4 going at the moment.

Church was interesting – we started a new series called Vengeance, it is about how we react when we are hurt by other people and the subtle ways in which we take revenge, e.g. withdrawing, suppressing(I’m struggling a bit with seeing how that one is vengeance) and two others which I don’t really remember.

Looking forward to the next installment of this.

Otherwise, not much exciting happening – I was meant to start my second cycle of bootcamp this morning. I debated with myself before bed and decided that I was going, woke up at 3 this morning and debated some more and decided that I was not going.

Still don’t know what the best thing is to do.

Quick Catch-up

Life has been a bit hectic (at work at least)

The weekend was fairly quiet and restful, but at work I’m preparing for a presentation and it’s going quite crazy.

I haven’t been able to go to exercise the last 2 days as my ankle is still hurting – really annoying. It looks like I might miss the assessment on Thursday as well.

I’ve been crocheting! Working on the scarf that I posted the other day – I wasn’t sure about the pattern at first, but it has grown on me – and now that it has, I have no idea where my other ball of the same yarn is!

I’ve also been working on a crochet top – I think I need to do about 10 more rows and then I’ll be done with either the front or the back side – this is one of those projects that I just can not wait to finish, but it will be a while still.

I’m trying to think if I have any other news…I don’t think so

The daily inspiration posts might be a bit erratic for the rest of the week due to this presentation, so please bear with me.

How is everyone else doing?
