She Loves Me
This is Greta. She's my friend's dog, and right after I took this pic she jumped up and kissed me. She's a very lovable pup. Mum and I visit my friend every Thursday night. This past Thursday had a twist - I dropped mum off, and then went to the SE Michigan Crafters Meetup, hosted by Rae from Made By Rae and Karen of Patterns By Figgy. Very fun - although I wasn't able to stay long, I got to talk to a lot of interesting folks. The highlight of which was getting to meet Rebekah, from Don't Call Me Becky. She's so sweet! I think most everyone there had a blog. Then I went back to pick up mum and go for donuts. Blueberry filled. With hot chocolate. I found my hot chocolate in the car this morning....totally forgot I had it.
Today was a mixed-emotion day. I went down the street to my best friend's house, to help her pack up her sewing room. She's moving. Only to the next city, but I won't be able to run down in my jammies anymore to borrow a sewing notion. We actually met several years ago, on an international machine embroidery yahoo group. What a happy day when we discovered we lived so close! I was happy to spend time with her today, but sad at the reason.
Tomorrow will be spent baking with my mum. I honestly don't know when I'll get any sewing done. Stuff is still in piles everywhere, maybe Sunday I can get to it - we're supposed to get some snow Sunday, and it will turn very, very cold. Sounds like a good reason to stay in, right?
I'm going to go take a look at my Google Reader now, I'm sure it's bursting at the seams! If you don't hear from me for a couple of days, I'm either sewing, baking, or have exploded from eating too many ginger snaps. 'Tis not the season for self-denial!
