I'm closing in on 30,000 visitors to my blog. Who knew? Well, when I get there I'll have a super duper giveaway. In the meantime, Kate over at Lazy Kate Creates is having a great giveaway so check her blog out.
Today I only managed to knit about 5 inches on my first sleeve for the Caddy Cardigan. I didn't start until after dinner because my day was just too full. I started by shopping for clothes at Macy's and while I swore I'd never buy the next size up, I caved in the name of comfort. Looking at yourself mostly naked in the dressing room with a three way mirror is about the most humbling thing one can do. I think we all imagine ourselves about 5 inches taller and
a few many pounds slimmer. I have to use this experience as a jumping off point to get back into shape. For the millionth time. Seriously. Gotta do it.
Despite the dressing room ordeal, I was reasonably successful -- three new pair of trousers, a pair of jeans, a cute shirt/sweater combo top, and three pair of shoes. I'd say that was successful, wouldn't you?
Hours after arriving at Macy's I finally headed to my next destination -- Kinko's -- to print off my resume. I had put the file on a flash drive -- aren't they just the handiest things? 20 copies of my resume cost me $8 so I sure hope they are effective. I have to wait for the outplacement firm to contact me about reviewing my resume, interviewing tips, etc., so I didn't want to make too many copies just yet.
I'm killing myself in the kitchen lately. I'm feeling like Julia re-incarnated. Tonight's New Year's Eve feast was stuffed Cornish game hen with whipped sweet potatoes and a white wine from Pancake Cellars called Big Day White. Bon Appetit!
I've been going to bed way too late lately, 1:30 last night (or should I say this morning??) and I need to stop doing that! I'm usually putzing around, reading patterns or books, but I need to finish up and get to bed at a reasonable time. That way I can get up at a reasonable time too! Funny how that works.....
