Yup... I bought me the green! I am waiting (im)patiently for it to arrive. On top of that, I have a gorgeous sock on the needles (helloyarn, fat sock: tapestry... to.die.for.) that are mine-all-mine, the lace shawl (it's in a time-out, for no other reason than it got warm and my tension changed due to sticky fingers), a sweater for PC's mom (secret design project) and a project I can't talk about here b/c she reads this blog (ahem: that's you Mel!).
On top of everything else, there might be a mighty shake-up here at Casa de Mini y PC. Some of you who know me in-real-life know that the past two years I have been questioning my life and my career and where to go with it. Nothing definite, but perhaps an opportunity to see the other side of the fence. More on that later (oh, I said "moron"-- ha ha ha). But, there are some internal conflicts with who I am and how I define myself ("scientist" is a term used to describe me... what will I be without it??). PC mentioned last night that when he met me, I loved my job (I was making NO money and working LONG hours) and now, I make MORE money and work LESS hours and he says I am not happy... I think the phrase was "not excited" anymore. As always, I will keep you posted.
No knitting photos today. Instead, I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes:
“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
