I'm crazy busy today, admittedly mostly my own fault. The house is just about set and we interviewed realtors on the weekend. It is all, finally, falling into place. The actual listing awaits some forms that need to be green-lighted by the relocation company first but we're heading out early in the morning to drive east, so they'll have to wait. Please don't remind me that we are wasting the prime househunting week of the year...we've heard it from everyone already. I doubt one week will be the make-or-break factor and we're leaving to celebrate a family event in Massachusetts. There, and along the way, we'll be seeing family from both sides and frankly, it couldn't come at a better time. I'm so ready for a break and we haven't seen any family since the holidays.
I've known about the event for almost a year. I've had the outfit for many months. So why did I leave it until today to head to the mall in search of the necessary undergarment? Oh right, because I hate the mall. Happily, I emerged victorious so all's well that ends well and now I'm ironing and packing and baking and banging out this quickie post to thank you all for your kind comments on the mitten. I can't wait to start on an actual pair now.
While I'm away, do take a few minutes and read this wonderful post at Tanya's blog, Taniwa. No matter your craft or avocation, I'm guessing it will strike a chord with you as it did me. And if you're at all interested in day-to-day life in Japan, poke around a little more. Tanya's posts are entertaining and often quite illuminating.
I've been playing with some corner options on my whirling star blocks and I'm liking the little red triangles. Back next week!
