Some updates

Long weekend officially started.  YAY!  I celebrated by sleeping in and taking a short nap just now.  I had hoped this would be a sleepy weekend.  :)

So, I started a new large-scale project in crochet last week.  I've been looking forward to it for months.  It's this really amazing skirt.  I had a lot of trouble at the start with sizing charts, etc.  But after starting over twice, I finally got underway.  A week in I realized I'd been making a mistake since day 1.  I emailed the designer to see if it would be a problem.  She said yes, it definitely was and I'd have to start over.  I literally cried for a minute.  I've decided to set it aside and try again maybe next year.  I have to admit I'm not a fan of really big projects anyway.  Working on something for more than a month just gets too tedious. It is on my proverbial bucket list though and I WILL try it one day.  Just not this year I think.

Thing at home are great.  The apartment is wonderful and we're settled in nicely.  The A/C is a dream.  It's been years since I've been in an apartment with central air.  I forgot how wonderful it is. We had a great morning too, sleeping in and then Bren playing some video games while I worked on that skirt, with Yuna dozing near by.  Those are the best mornings.

Roulette closes tonight and I'll be done.  And no other shows to go into.  For the first time in years, nothing on the horizon.  I am doing costumes for a show and I'm pretty excited about that.  I think it will be a very fun challenge.

Not much else to report.  Lazy summer is on it's way!!
