Don’t know what to say
Posted July 15, 2008on:
I have a friend who’s going through some tough family stuff right now. I wish that there was something I could say to help or something I could do to make things better. Because she’s been there for me many times when I’ve needed it. For now, I’m just offering support and listening.
I also continued in my growing process today by asking for some help and not getting stressed out. I’ve got a few things that have to be taken care of by the end of the week, partly because of vacation and partly just because that’s how it is. So, I asked for a day off the desk to concentrate on what I need to do. Turns out I’ve gained a bit of time tomorrow since a meeting was canceled, so with that and a mostly free Thursday (except for a department meeting in the morning) to work on some things. That way Friday will be all about finishing touches.
I’ve honestly not been knitting much this week yet. I started another bathmat (that will actually be a bathmat this time around.)
And now for a couple of pictures. The first is the baking I did a couple of weekends ago. The rolls were a bit odd tasting. I think I need some new flour. Actually I know I do because the chocolate cashew bars had the same odd flavor. They also didn’t hold together as well as I could have like so I think they needed to be in the oven a bit longer.
The second picture shows my new hair. The cut is pretty similar to what I’ve been doing for the past few months, although this time I had a stylist who actually did it really well. (Too bad she’s moving to St. Louis. It was her last day.) But I went crazy and bought one of those fun highlighting kits, so my hair now has purplish/red tips. I don’t care that I’m 36, I wanted to try something different. Excuse the fact that I’m generally not photogenic.
