Happy early birthday to cmpriest
, who advance a year over the weekend!State of the 'Song
The hacking cough and postnasal drip continue, but I'm pretty much otherwise okay. Physically.
Emotionally... this is a difficult transition for me, and I'm piecing together a lot of why that is. That gets its own post eventually.Sindrian Arts is a go!100% funded!
You can still back Sindrian Arts and get cool stuff through Sunday afternoon. But yeah. Funding. Yay. :)
I love the level of community involvement we have here; I came downstairs to two e-mails, a text message, and an IM squeeing about sindrian
making his goal, and I know several people were obsessively hitting "reload" right along with me yesterday. This is a really cool project that speaks to people and that is awesome.Good day
We woke up to that awesome news and celebrated at Friendly Toast
. You guys. Um. Banana chocolate chip pancakes with peanut butter between 'em plus bacon and fresh whipped cream. Gluten-free. This is absurd candy food that I would never get otherwise. I was giggling, half-appalled at the excess.
Then the hardware store, which had the stuff sindrian
needed plus the kitchen scale I've had on my wishlist (gluten-free baking is by grams) and this awesome garlic chopper
- a lot of the Joseph Joseph stuff tempted me, because OMG design geekery, but I decided that of all of the temptations, this was the one we'd use most often. Warning: if you do not like garlic, let us know before coming over for dinner. Because we really like garlic.
Then the yarn store, for dark green yarn for a baby blanket for sindrian
's brother and sister-in-law (due in September) and a skein of Noro Taiyo Sock (in #5)
for this scarf
(for me unless Elayna steals it).
And now I am home.Elayna
She is having an awesome
time at Explo
- she's in pics #4
today, the first time she's been photographed this session. I told sindrian
that I sometimes worry about her keeping to herself too much and not going out and making friends; I know she always does, but I still worry. So I was gratified to see that her hair was braided in the pics. Because she doesn't know how to braid hair, you see. Someone braided it for her. <3
I'm totally envious of her re: her weekend trips, too. Tomorrow's the Newport Folk Festival
- if you see her, say hi! And Sunday is Cirque du Soleil. She's been a huge Cirque fangirl for years. :) I always wanted to take her to her first Cirque show - but alas, that is not to be! Chatelainingsindrian
has now seen what feats of chatelaining I can do on just a little
bit of energy. Behold, everything is clean, and the yarn is organized by weight. Et cetera. Feels good to finally have a handle on the housekeeping.Link Soup

I finished and blocked the Clothilde shawl! I have 15 more rows to go on the Lavalette shawl I'm knitting for my mother, and as always, I have a baby blanket on the needles.Planning
: Adam's mom arrives soon! We'll be eating at Tempo
tonight and either Harvest
tomorrow - we'd planned for Harvest, but Adam's mom says someone had a bad meal there once, so she's pushing for Evoo. Thoughts, Boston foodies? I've never been to either.
No idea what we're doing other than eating. We shall see.
