at this being on vacation thing, that is. this morning, I woke up 45 minutes before I normally wake up when I have to go to work. I tried and tried, but could not fall back asleep! I do believe I was just too giddy at the thought of not having to go into work today - or ever! ok, fine, not ever ever, but I won't have to go back to my OLD job ever. heehee.
anywho, I had a pretty productive morning - crossed a few things off my miles long to do list. the rest of the day will involve more crossing off, but hopefully it will also include some fun too. oh, what am I saying? not having to go to work makes even shopping for a new front door seem like fun. which is exactly what I'll be doing as soon as I finish posting this.
I even caught hugh grant on the view this morning. not a show I normally like to watch, but, hey, hugh grant! and while I watched/listened, I did something I've been wanting to do for quite some time now. actually, ever since I got my knitpicks options needle set in the mail. take a look - ta-da!
my very own clearance aisle at target placemat turned needle roll! just for my knitpicks set! I've really not liked the case that knitpicks makes. actually, if you like the original case, I'm selling it off on destash for a piddly $10. so I can buy some more cables. what fun! here are more pictures of my little creation.
I'm quite pleased with it, really. please don't mind the ghetto-ness of the rubber band holding it together... I'll figure out some prettier way of keeping it together that doesn't involve the tying of ribbons.
or, I can always just fold it in half, which is quite a space saver too. oh, the possibilities!
well, I hope I'll have more fun stuff to share with you next week. it's door shopping time for me. in the meantime, I hope everyone has a fabulous long weekend and a happy chinese new year! gong xi fa cai!
